Laying of 5.000 m² natural and porcelain stoneware.


Building type Office and residential buildings
Area 5.000 m²
Country Germany

The new financial center of the construction giant Bilfinger was designed and implemented in accordance with the latest sustainability standards. The H-shaped building pursues an efficient space concept on 10,000 square meters of floor space with workplaces for 500 employees.

Installer Klaus Dieckerhoff took on this project and laid over 5,000 m² of natural and porcelain stoneware. On half of the area, high-quality, large-format coverings were laid in order to remain loyal to the simultaneously sustainable and modern concept. Besides the demanding large format installation, the challenge lay above all in the optimal sealing and grouting of the canteen kitchen floor surfaces. Due to the extreme conditions, it was important to use building materials that are particularly resistant to chemicals and other aggressive substances in order to ensure long-term use. The solution were products based on epoxy resins. Thus, the reactive resin grout Epo-Tix was used together with the reactive waterproofing Epo 2000 and the safety waterproofing from codex.

All codex products used:

- codex Epo 2000
- codex Sicherheitsabdichtungen
- codex Epo Tix
- codex FM 50 Turbo
- codex FG 300
- codex Stone SX 80 Cristal
- codex Power RX 6 Turbo
- codex Brillant Cristal

Products used

Brillant Cristal Rapid colour grout mortar

codex Brillant Cristal is a rapid setting, flexible colour grout mortar with crystalline water binding properties for tile and natural stone coverings with joint widths from 1 to 10 mm. Rapid setting prevents discolouration of the edges.

Stone SX 80 cristal Rapid setting white flex mortar

codex Stone SX 80 cristal is a white, fast setting, flex-thin bed adhesive with crystalline water binding properties for natural stone coverings. Due to its rapid and crystalline water binding properties, codex Stone SX 80 Cristal is quickly walkable and increases safety when laying natural stone with high water absorption.

X-Tensive 2-C epoxy mortar

codex X-Tensive is suitable for bonding and jointing ceramic and natural stone coverings in areas subject to high chemical or mechanical stress. The joint is easy to clean due to the closed joint surface.

FG 300 Primer

codex FG 300 is a dispersion primer for absorbent, mineral substrates. The FG 300 is versatile, water-dilutable and easy to use and offers highest safety due to its good penetration capacity.

Epo 2000 Reactive sealing

The codex Epo 2000 reactive sealant is a flexible, two-component epoxy resin composite sealant under ceramic coverings. codex Epo 2000 is a flexible, composite sealant for surfaces exposed to particularly high levels of moisture and wetness, even those exposed to high chemical loads.

Power RX 6 Turbo Fast flex-, thin- and flow-bed mortar

The rapid setting, highly flexible thin- and flow-bed mortar codex Power RX 6 Turbo is suitable for the installation of wall and floor coverings.

FM 50 Turbo Tiling Levelling Compound

The tile filler codex FM 50 Turbo is a self-levelling cement floor levelling compound for layer thicknesses of 3-50 mm. codex FM 50 Turbo hardens very quickly and is ready for covering early, even in thick layers.
