Every month, digital consumer magazine Vergleich.org offers more than 3.4 million readers comparison tables and advice to assist them when selecting products and services.

The homepage www.vergleich.org now covers more than 2,000 product categories – in each case, the seven best products and services are assessed, compared and presented.

Recently Vergleich.org included the category of “tile adhesives” and compared the seven tile adhesives with the best assessments on various online portals.
The seven best tile adhesives already included three PCI products: PCI Nanolight, PCI FT-Klebemörtel and Ceresit CBF1S.
The results were certainly respectable: PCI Nanolight took first place in the comparison with an assessment of very good (1.3).

For its comparison analyses, Vergleich.org compiles evaluations and test reports from independent sources (e.g. Stiftung Warentest, Ökotest, Expertentest) and combines them with customer ratings from online dealers (e.g. Amazon, eBay, etc.). Parameters such as product and brand popularity, whether the project is up to date, price and scope of functions are also taken into consideration.

For further information, you can download the comparison at:
https://www.vergleich.org/fliesenkleber/

We are very pleased about this award and thank all users of our tile adhesives for the positive feedback.

Craftspeople were asked to select the best manufacturers and brands in the construction sector. For this purpose, ibau conducted an online survey on brand awareness, brand preference and brand acceptance in the construction sector at the end of 2016 together with the Heinze market research Institute.

About 3,000 firms had an opportunity to select their preferred brands among about 300 manufacturers in a variety of product categories – ranging from construction chemicals to acoustic materials, interior acoustics, masonry, insulating materials, facade products, dry wall construction and bonded thermal insulation systems.

The firms, which are active in a variety of different trades, assessed manufacturers’ service portfolios in terms of quality, price, ease of use and willingness to recommend to colleagues. All in all, 18,000 responses were evaluated.

In the two product categories “construction chemicals” and “waterproofing of buildings”, the evaluation showed that PCI had taken first place!

The “Stein im Brett” award, the “building trade Oscar awarded by craftspeople” once again shows that PCI is the partner of the building trade in the field of construction chemicals and waterproofing of buildings.

We would like to thank all the firms which took part in the ibau survey for their confidence and support.

Large-size tiles are the latest trend. They not only look elegant and modern, but let small rooms appear larger and large rooms more quiet. Fully-vitrified tiles, size 270 x 120 cm, were laid in a living room of 60 m². This video demonstrates the individual work steps of how to lay the tiles.

The project was completed in collaboration with our customer Mobau Bauzentrum Hückelhoven and the master tiler Jens Pomplun.

The latest product of the approved PCI Periplan range is an allrounder: It does not only act as a directly usable floor, but is suitable as a leveller under top coverings. Another benefit is the high compressive strength making PCI Periplan Multi resistant against high mechanical loads. PCI Periplan Multi is extremely workable, self levelling and can also be applied by pump on large surfaces.

The floor can be walked on after about four hours after the installation, can be covered, if required, with a sealing after 24 hours and is able to bear weight after approx. seven days. The floor meets the requirements of screed class CT-C40-F6-AR0,5 to DIN EN 13813.

PCI Augsburg GmbH presents a new packaging concept for the PCI Pecimor range: rectangular, compact plastic pails with handles and multi-coloured lids.

The new pails convince with a uniform appearance and better handling. The former round sheet-metal pails or plastic pails are replaced by rectangular pails consisting of 100% recycled plastic material. The colour spectrum is uniform for the PCI Pecimor range on the one hand, but makes the differentiation between the individual products easier on the other hand.

The new packaging provides significant advantages for the operative at the jobsite. The pails are much easier to carry and will not tilt over so easily due to the larger base area and the lower centroid of the pail.

The PCI bitumen thick coatings are available in the new rectangular pails as of early 2015.

The multi-use flexible joint grout PCI Nanofug® Premium belongs to a new generation of intelligent products from PCI. What makes this product special is that it combines many positive features for operatives and contractors. And the colour range has now been extended by five new colours: ochre, beige brown, light brown, intensive brown, red brown.

As of 2015, the PCI colour range also offers a new classification. The 23 colours are now classified in four warm colour groups: the distinction in neutral, cool, warm and earth tones makes the colour selection easier and enables harmonic and contrast colours.

Tilers in Germany are no longer obliged to obtain a Master Craftsman's Certificate. However, the same is true today as it was ten years ago when the regulation was changed: This certificate is still recognised as the highest standard of quality in the trade. Those who decide to train to be a master craftsman not only improve their level of qualifications but can also set their company apart from the competition. This is why PCI endorses the Master Craftsman's Certificate in Germany and provides the next generation of master tilers studying at the Arnsberg vocational centre with their products. This ensures that tomorrow's construction specialists have the right professional products today to produce excellent work. Master tiling specialists are the future of the tiling trade.

Modern, large tiles are predestined for large surface areas. The joints play a significant role in the design of an overall harmonious image. However, the tile layer often needs to cut large tiles so that movement joints in the screed are continued in the tile covering. The result: Uneven joints with wide silicone grouting that disturb the overall image. As of now, PCI Augsburg GmbH offers the possibility, with their intelligent system "Uniform joints", to tile over the movement joints and integrate them into the tiling.
