Offering a unique solution specific to the Australian and New Zealand markets, Bisazza Hotmelt is paired with Bisazza’s famous glass mosaic pool tiles to create a highly durable and long lasting finish in your new outdoor pool’s design.

What is Bisazza Hotmelt?

In addressing the harsh effects of the Australian sun, Bisazza has developed a unique tile adhesion system that not only meets, but exceeds the specified requirements of the relevant Australian Standards.

Available in Australia and New Zealand, this unique tile adhesive system has been certified by CSIRO under the following Australian Standards:

  • AS ISO 13007.2.2013: Tile Adhesion Strength
  • AS 3958.1.2007 Part 1: Tile Adhesive Coverage 90%

Contact between the pool tiles and the shell of the pool must be at a minimum of 90%; Bisazza’s Hotmelt system goes beyond this specification to deliver a high quality finish that will last a lifetime with proper installation. The Hotmelt cross linking system uses polyurethane (PU) thermos set adhesive which is a strong and simple to adjust solution that will not change its characteristics when wet.

The Bisazza Smalto 20 collection is available in an extensive selection of colour options from classic pool tile colours of blue and aqua to modern styles in liquorice black, stormy grey and luscious gold!

The system is UV resistant which means it will not discolour over time; non-UV resistant materials can sometimes lead to spots being visible through the glass mosaic tiles, creating a costly problem to repair. Being simple to adjust during the installation process, Bisazza’s Hotmelt solution allows for precise application of your new glass mosaic tiles, once again allowing for maximum coverage of the pool’s shell. Pair Hotmelt mounted mosaic swimming pool tiles with Bisazza’s range of Fillgel for even greater UV resistance.

One of the most popular outdoor swimming pool tile options is glass however, ensuring the very best quality materials have been used in their application will ensure their longevity and quality over time.
