• Extreme Temperature Cycles
• Use of Volunteers
Starting in 2011, the community of North Creek, NY has commissioned
tiling work along a 200 ft. retaining wall flanking the entrance into
downtown. Lead by local artist Kate Hartley, the Jonsburgh Fine Arts
Group, and thousands of volunteers; the North Creek Mosaic Project is
an on-going work in progress. The varying and extreme temperatures
in the Adirondack Mountains would put to the test the workability and
durability of tile and stone mortars. The project was also faced with
overcoming fundraising obstacles and the number of volunteer man
hours needed to complete this community project.
ARDEX LME Installer Geoff Konis first heard about the North Creek Mosaic Project in early 2011. After reaching
out to Kate Hartley, Geoff knew that to withstand the extreme freeze/thaw cycles experienced during the
Adirondack Mountains region, ARDEX X 77™ MICROTEC
Fiber Reinforced Tile and Stone Mortar would be
the one mortar solution needed for the entire project. ARDEX X 77 features the most advanced technology for
exterior applications with an extended open time of 60 minutes and unmatched sag resistance; both are double
the ISO 13007 standards.
Working with thousands of volunteers unexperienced to tiling, large periods of gaps in the project timeline,
and extreme weather conditions, the extremely easy to mix and apply properties of ARDEX X 77 enabled Kate
and her team to consistently set a mirage of broken glass and tile pieces along large stretches of the mural;
sometimes 600 sq. ft. at a time due to the creamy consistency and longer adjusting times!
“It took me a while to learn the logistics of creating a mural of this scale, especially with such disparate materials
- natural stones, shells as well as tile and glass - but I continue to be impressed with the ability of ARDEX X 77 to
keep things in place, even when first applied. It’s so easy to use, even toddlers can stick tile!”, Kate Hartley on
the ease of using ARDEX X 77™ MICROTEC
Fiber Reinforced Tile and Stone Mortar.
The North Creek Mosaic Project is nearing completion of its 6th year, with 2 more years of estimated work to
