Introduction to Industrial Acid-Resistant Tiles

TilesIndustrial acid-resistant tiles are produced in two types, plain and anti-slip, considering the place of use and to ensure user safety. The anti-slip type is more suitable for environments where the anti-slip property is required, such as pool edges and industrial kitchens exposed to grease. These products are certified by the Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran according to national standard No. 3051 (acid-resistant tile characteristics).


Applications :

  • - Suitable for use in environments exposed to acids (excluding hydrofluoric acid HF).
  • - Suitable for use in environments exposed to heavy dynamic loads, such as industrial warehouse floors where forklifts carry loads.
  • - Suitable for use in environments with heavy foot traffic (such as public places). - Suitable for use in environments with odorous substances (such as industrial kitchens and public restrooms).
  • - Suitable for use in acid tanks and chemical containers.
  • - Suitable for covering floors and walls in industrial halls.
Choosing industrial acid-resistant tiles::

Important points in choosing industrial acid-resistant tiles are as follows:

- For floors in environments where slipping is possible, and as a result, there is a risk of people falling, be sure to use the type with texture or in other words, anti-slip products.
- In industrial spaces where there is an excessive presence of dirtying agents, it is recommended to use red-grain acid-resistant tiles that have a higher dirt-repellent property compared to plain types.

Installation of industrial acid-resistant tiles: To benefit from the positive features of acid-resistant tiles, it is essential to observe the following points during installation:

  1. Use suitable acid-resistant grout (according to operating environment conditions) for installation and grouting. Not using acid-resistant grout can result in industrial environment acids gradually passing through regular grouts over time, causing corrosion, reaching underneath the tiles, leading to cracking, damage to applied coatings, or creating unpleasant odors in the environment.

    1. Observing 3 to 5 millimeters joints and completely filling them with acid-resistant grout. Pay attention to fully filling the underside surface of tiles with acid-resistant grout, using suitable acid-resistant membranes to prevent chemical penetration into the main substrate. These membranes also help strengthen the adhesion of tiles and the substrate.
