The tiler grouted the spacious shower area using PCI Durapox Premium high-strength epoxy resin joint grout.
PCI Nanofug Premium was used for grouting the fully vitrified tiles on the pool surround.
Fliesen-Engelke has placed its trust in PCI products for many years. To date, the experience of the master tiler and his firm with system products, advice on planning and support on site has always been good.
Professional tiling with PCI Flexmörtel S1 Flott: fully vitrified tiles in the private spa.
Fliesen-Engelke GmbH used PCI Flexmörtel S1 Flott as the adhesive for the 90 x 90 centimeter fully vitrified tiles. This flexible tile adhesive combines extremely convenient use with a long working time and fast setting.
The overlaps of Pecilastic W and PCI Pecitape 120 were bonded using PCI Seccoral 2K Rapid.
PCI Pecilastic W was used for waterproofing the pool surround. The overlaps on the waterproofing sheets were waterproofed by the tiling contractor Engelke using PCI Seccoral 2K Rapid waterproofing slurry.
The pool was supplied complete with pre-installed glass mosaic tiling. The pool surround and showers were tiled by Fliesen-Engelke using fully vitrified tiles over an area of about 130 square meters. PCI adviser Thomas Rauls and PCI applications technician Eric Peter provided a system and product selection recommendation.
A client on the north-eastern edge of Lüneburg Heath planned a private spa on his property. For tiling, the architects and the contractor, Fliesen-Engelke GmbH, opted for products and advice from PCI Augsburg GmbH.

The ancient Romans were already well aware of the healthy, relaxing effect of lengthy bathing. A property owner near to Lüneburg Heath took Roman bathing culture as his model and planned a private spa on his land, which has an area of several thousand square meters. With the support of PCI Augsburg GmbH and using selected PCI system products, Fliesen-Engelke GmbH tiled the floors and walls of the spa building. The architecture firm Scaven Hütz of Hamburg was responsible for planning and construction supervision while the interior architecture was the work of HONEYandSPICE. The result is a facility providing an exclusive bathing experience.
A systematic approach: waterproofing, tiling and grouting
First, the 4 x 17 m GRP pool with pre-installed grey glass mosaic tiling was lowered into the spa building, with a floor area of about 230 square meters, using a special crane. For tiling, including waterproofing, adhesive bonding and grouting, PCI application technician Eric Peter made a recommendation for the sequence and selection of system products. PCI adviser Thomas Rauls provided project support and made several visits to the site.
Sheet waterproofing for the greatest possible reliability
The tiling contractor waterproofed the pool surround as well as the walls and floors in the showers using PCI Pecilastic W and PCI Seccoral 2K Rapid. The flexible crack-bridging waterproofing membrane PCI Pecilastic W is suitable for laying under ceramic and natural stone coverings and is ideal for wet areas with severe exposure to non-pressing water (water exposure class W2-I in accordance with DIN 18534). The two-component waterproofing slurry PCI Seccoral 2K Rapid ensures that the overlaps between the waterproofing sheets are also watertight. The substrate was primed using PCI Gisogrund 404 special primer before waterproofing was applied.
Laying and grouting a fully vitrified tiled covering that remains attractive in the long term
The tilers laid the exclusive great fully vitrified tiles, with a size of 90 x 90 centimeters, on a total area of about 130 square meters using PCI Flexmörtel S1 Flott tile adhesive. The flexible tile adhesive combines long working time with fast setting for extremely convenient application. Thanks to the firm adhesive bed, it is ideal for laying large tiles.
Tiles on the pool surround were grouted with PCI Nanofug Premium. The cementitious joint grout with easy-to-clean effect, increased resistance to acidic household cleaning products and improved protection against frequent attack by mold and microorganisms also offers especially attractive colors and a fine surface texture. Thanks to its smooth, creamy consistency, PCI Nanofug Premium is also very convenient to use. PCI Durapox Premium was used on the walls and floors of the showers. This innovative epoxy resin joint grout features extremely brilliant colors, a homogeneous surface texture and a creamy consistency for application.
Very low-emission tiling work
“Using PCI system products, we were able to meet all the requirements for this spa and to complete the work to the entire satisfaction of the owner,” reports master tiler Jürgen Engelke, adding: “The entire PCI range is convincing because all the products harmonize perfectly with each other and offer the highest possible levels of reliability. They are really dependable.” In addition, PCI products allow the construction of a healthy living environment. The materials used for priming, waterproofing, tiling and grouting are all very low-emission products in accordance with GEV EMICODE EC1 or EC1 PLUS.
