    I missed out on @Ray TT @ Porcel-Thin@Ray TT @ Porcel-Thin demo day a couple of years ago and was absolutely gutted. Last year I was acquainted with Kris @Tile Superstores Ringwood@Tile Superstores Ringwood on the Dorset Hampshire border on the edge of the New Forest. He was very keen to learn more about thin porcelain and in conjunction with Ray they have organised a demo in Ringwood next Friday.
    Sadly I can't attend (double gutted!!!!), but there is free coffee and bacon rolls up for grabs, a free Porcel-Thin demo and great company. Posting this here not to advertise either company, but to promote awareness of this new up & coming product, it's fitment and tips from the main man! I'm getting no kick back either by the way.......just missing out on bacon baps and a Porcel-Thin demo :(

    I really hope some from the forum can attend :)

    Hi guys,
    It would be great if any of the fixers on here could attend, to learn about the porcel-thin range or even give your insight on how to fit if, you have done so previously. It's a very exciting addition to our business and am very keen to learn more about the porcel-thin product.
    If not pop in and say hello and have a bacon roll & coffee

    Thanks to Kris and thanks to mark for yesterday. Came away feeling I gained some good knowledge and a full belly which is always a bonus. Can't wait to get my teeth stuck into some of this tile. Marc I forgot to ask... would you always use anti crack Matt on floors or just heated ones? My biggest concern would be the week points on corner cuts/u pieces

    Just how useful glass cutting tools are with the use of porcel-thin was very interesting, but for use across all formats, just how effective for full coverage the ragini 10mm x 6mm trowel is was compared to others was interesting to see, will be getting one for sure!!

    Glad you had a good day, and thought it was worth attending.
    Yeah I always advise an antifracture mat where possible.
    Heated or not.
