Selecting the correct membrane for your next project is paramount to the success and longevity of your chosen Metz system. Metz have developed several membrane and tile combinations which when installed as a system will provide you with a long term result. There are also membranes which can be used under coatings to provide a complete solution.
Metz manufacture a range of acid proof materials to resist the strongest chemicals in extremely demanding physical environments. Materials can be used as protective toppings, grout and mortars, or as concretes that require no further protective layers after placement. We also manufacture specialty adhesive and grouts for commercial kitchens, aquatic centres and various commercial and industrial applications.
Metz specially formulated single and dual component movement joints are designed to be used in industrial plants, commercial kitchens and swimming pools where both toughness, moisture and chemical resistance are required. Movement joints are available that will also protect edges of adjacent tiles or topping against damage by heavy wheeled traffic, or will resist concentrated chemical exposures.
Metz has modified epoxy and epoxy novolac coatings based on our special resin and hardeners which impart outstanding chemical resistance which can be roller applied, spayed or trowelled for vertical and overhead surfaces. It can be applied at thicknesses up to 4mm. They can cure rapidly even at low ambient temperatures, thus minimising downtime.
Metz provides advanced and specialised coating systems including fluoroelastomer and polyurethane coatings. These specialty coatings can be rolled or spray applied providing a range of chemical resistance suitable for laboratories, fertiliser plants, petrochemical plants & acid manufacturing plants.
Metz acid resistant toppings and renders are heavier-duty systems and are normally 2–8mm in thickness. Toppings and renders are more suitable than thinner coatings for repair of acid attacked concrete when there is the need to fill areas removed by highly corrosive chemicals. These materials can be either poured, sprayed or trowelled into place.
Metz selection of high chemical & industrial acid resistant polyurethane toppings and renders provide a tough, high chemical resistant solution.
Those polyurethane toppings and renders are heavier-duty systems and are normally 4–8mm in thickness. Metz 94-TZ is an aesthetically pleasing resinous terrazzo material.
Metz high chemical & industrial acid resistant Vinyl Ester toppings and renders provide a heavy duty, high chemical resistant solution. Metz Vinyl Ester provide fast curing, and are normally applied 4–8 mm thick. Toppings and renders are more suitable than thinner coatings for repair of acid attacked concrete when there is the need to fill areas removed by highly corrosive chemicals.
Metz manufacture a range of specialty concretes to resist the strongest acids and chemicals in demanding physical environments. Metz’ range of concretes include materials based upon potassium silicate, epoxy, epoxy novolac or vinyl ester. They can be used in chemical plants, oil refineries and fertiliser plants etc.
Acid bricks and tiles differ from typical commercial bricks and tiles in several ways but the most significant physical differences are in the low absorption rates and variety of physical shapes available. Acid tiles are commonly much thicker than conventional tiles. Typical acid tiles are 20–25mm thick, whereas most commercial floor tiles are only 5–8mm thick. This additional thickness contributes to high strength and a highly chemical resistant ceramic lining capability.
