What is the MLT leveling system?
The MLT System allows for the installation of large-sized ceramic or stone tiles, on floors, walls and ceilings, ensuring a perfectly leveled tile surface with the use of a two component system with mechanical leveling adjustments. It ensures an excellent but above all technically correct aesthetic finish. The use of the system ensures compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). MLT is both economical and respectful to the environment, indeed it is the first leveling system that is truly “green” as it is recyclable.
What material can be used with MLT?
Unlike other leveling systems, MLT can be used with stone, porcelain and ceramic slabs with dimensions from 12" x 12" (30 x 30 cm) size and larger, with thicknesses from 1/8" (3 mm) to 3/4" (20 mm).
Can you use MLT for gauged porcelain tile panels?
Yes, MLT has engineered a specific bottom plate for very thin tiles and slabs. This product is able to overcome problems related to installing thin panel tile. Thin panel plates are designed to ensure complete adhesive coverage between the material and the substrate.
Is this an expensive leveling system?
MLT cost is low because the only non-reusable component is the bottom plate that remains in the tile adhesive after it has cured and been broken off. Caps and inserts can be reused again and again. The price of the straps is very reasonable compared to other systems.
How does the strap become integrated in the setting material?
The bottom plate of the straps are completely immersed due to the specific “fork” design that sinks into the adhesive instead of pushing it outside as other competitor products do.
Can MLT be used on floors and walls?
Absolutely, and it can be used for ceilings as well! The MLT System works on walls with tiles quickly and easily; the bottom plates have special holes that attach to the ceiling. It is recommended to only use this system for thin tiles on ceilings.
What does it mean that the caps are re-useable?
Caps are made with materials that allow them to be used several hundreds of times, cutting down on material costs. The cap is made from strong nylon and the hook area between the cap and strap has been made to last long. If the caps or straps are worn out in the hook area, a double stainless steel thin sheet can be inserted in the relevant cap housing to further prolong their use.
How are the T2 straps "ready-to-use"?
Unlike the two-piece strap system, the T2 straps require no assembly before use. For this reason, the T2 straps are not reusable and break below the grout line.
Do T2 straps require soaking before use?
While most other systems request that straps should be pre-soaked, when the MLT System is used this procedure is not required.
How do I reposition a cap after tension has been applied?
The patented hook system, allows the cap to be released even under tension with a simple lateral movement on the ergonomic gun. It is now possible to reposition the strap and the bottom plate and proceed with a new clamping. This procedure is not possible using competitor systems, since it would involve breaking the strap and disposing it together with the bottom plate.
Can I use the MLT System with delicate materials?
To prevent scratches, the use of protective rubber is highly recommended when installing delicate materials.
