“Battile” vibrating suction cup for tiles and slabs by Montolit
BATTILE is a vibrating suction cup for use in the installation of glued tiles. The tool is able to remove excess air from the joint between the tile and the base in order to improve adhesion and prevent subsequent cracking. Ideal for ceramic, porcelain, granite, marble, and glass tiles and slabs.
The thumping (vibrating) suction cup is available in two versions: Battile and Battile-Pro
Battile thumping suction cup
Powered by lithium-ion batteries, it is compact and light and allows, in the case you’re working on small/medium-sized tiles, the positioning of the tile using the suction cup and then the vibration to eliminate any air bubbles which, if trapped between the adhesive and the tile, could cause breakage.
In the case of large slabs, its use is essential to ensure perfect adhesion of the adhesive and to avoid annoying and dangerous “voids”.
The intensity of the vibration is adjustable from 5,000 to 18,000 vibrations/minute via a potentiometer located by the handle.
Battile PRO thumping suction cup (removable and rechargeable battery)
Equipped with an easily removable and rechargeable 16V lithium battery, it has a remarkable vibrating power, which can be modulated via a control panel on three different frequencies, optimized for the correct application of the adhesive and the extraction of voids or air bubbles and a contact base in special large non-marking rubber.
The suction cup, which can be activated simply with an eccentric lever, allows lifting up to 25 kg and can be kept in depression to vibrate the tile once it has been laid, while the release of the suction cup is recommended to be able to perform the vibration operation with a circular movement from the inside of the tile towards the outside, particularly suitable for large formats or thin slabs.
The particular shape and the double handle allow to keep the load balanced during the lifting and laying of the tile and to best lead Battile-Pro in the thumping phase to optimize its functionality. The inserts in soft-touch material on the handle make the grip ergonomically comfortable and safe.
