TEC® and Crossville® Create Approved Installation System for Large Format Thin Panels
October 18th, 2013

Products from TEC® have been endorsed by Crossville for use with its Laminam® by Crossville® line of large thin porcelain panels. Crossville recently launched its line of large porcelain panels for wall and floor applications through an exclusive distributorship with Italian manufacturer Laminam S.p.A. The line features the first-ever large format slab with a thickness of as little as 3 millimeters. TEC® and Crossville have jointly developed Laminam® specific installation guidelines, as the revolutionary panels require different handling and installation techniques than traditional products.

Although large format thin panels have become increasingly popular, successful installation requires specific materials. TEC® offers a variety of setting materials for use with Laminam® by Crossville® – including surface preparation products, mortars, grouts and caulks. “Our goal is to educate contractors on the methods and products that will help them deliver high quality results,” says Tim Bolby, Executive Technical Services Director at Crossville. “Our recommendations, which include select TEC® products, specify the equipment, materials, handling, storage and installation methods to help contractors achieve success.”

As part of the collaboration, H.B. Fuller Construction Products, the manufacturer of TEC® brand products, offers an extended limited warranty* for TEC® bonding systems used with Laminam® by Crossville®.

“ We’re excited to collaborate with Crossville on their large format panel initiative,” says Grant Huffine, Senior Market Manager for H.B. Fuller Construction Products. “The installation system we’ve developed with Crossville® for these innovative products reflects our commitment to expanding design possibilities for both those who imagine spaces and those who build them.”
