The “Tile Installer Thin-Set Standards” (ITS) Verification Course instructs installers on industry standards and proper installation methods for the thin-set applications that apply to ceramic tile, porcelain tile, stone tile, glass tile and other types of adhered tile materials. It covers current industry standards as well as common manufacturer’s requirements. This course is also meaningful to architects, general contractors, consultants, inspectors and owners who want to be aware of the industry installation standards and methods.
While the organization has been in existence for 70 years, the overall objective remains clear and that is to raise the profile of the industry within the marketplace, and the respective standards in order to achieve that goal.
A significant use of ceramic tile and stone involves wet areas requiring long term control
of intermittent and/or constant presence of moisture. North America is switching from Static COF (SCOF) with ASTM C1028 method to Dynamic Coefficient of Friction COF (DCOF) with the BOT 3000 to the new recognized and accepted standards ANSI A137.1.
Do you need to meet ASTM C-627 standards? The Universal Type Floor Tester is a unique machine. This machine is a redesign of the Robinson Floor tester and is capable of carrying out the test for an ASTM C-627 designation.
