Bostik Releases New Bosti-Set Video for Large, Thin Porcelain Tile
Bostik, Inc., a world leader in specialty adhesives and installation systems for building construction, has produced a new video, which demonstrates the superior characteristics of its revolutionary new product, Bosti-SetTM.

Scott Banda, Bostik’s Director of Marketing and Business Development stated, “Bosti-SetTM is a premium adhesive and sound reduction membrane… created specifically for gauged thin porcelain tile panel installations. There are so many positives about this new product, we produced our new video to highlight them.”

According to Bostik’s Eric Kurtz, Market Manager, Hardwood, Resilient & Surface Preparation Systems, “With Bosti-Set™, we’ve developed a product that immediately grabbed porcelain tile panels in a single coat, did not allow any sag, yet made it possible for these panels to be repositionable for at least 30 minutes. Technologies used were environmentally friendly and contributed toward LEED® points. Above all, we created something that reduced project timelines.”

Chad Bulen, Bostik’s Technical Services Manager added that with Bosti-Set™, “Projects calling for gauged thin porcelain tile panels now can be installed in roughly half the time with a smaller crew. Why? A single layer of adhesive is troweled only onto the back of the panel, cutting the square footage necessary to trowel in half. Additionally, crewmembers dedicated to basics such as mixing, running mortar back-and-forth and similar functions, can be re-directed to work on more skilled installation procedures.”

Bosti-SetTM is lighter in weight with much greater coverage than typical mortars. It contains zero VOC's as well as 2% recycled material. Bostik’s patent-pending Thickness ControlTM Spacer Technology built into Bosti-Set™ ensures proper membrane thickness is maintained between tile panels and the substrate. Recycled rubber crumb particles mixed into the adhesive create optimal membrane sound reduction performance.

“Today, gauged thin porcelain tile panels have become extremely popular for numerous reasons,” concluded Banda. “In particular, because they solve so many installation problems. This newer category of high-technology tile clearly needed the most state-of-the-art installation material. That’s why we created Bosti-SetTM. The benefits offered are professionally showcased in our new video.”
