Acropolis Museum

The new Acropolis Museum is one of the most important cultural sites of our country, with the largest museum visit in Greece. It is a special place, with a unique design, which took over 3 decades to complete. After four architectural competitions, the construction of the new Acropolis Museum was awarded to the architects Bernard Tschumi and Michalis Fotiadis. 

Its very own exhibits determined the architectural structure of the Acropolis Museum. The temple pediments, the famous Parthenon sculptures and a number of other exhibits essentially defined the size and shape of the new museum. A minimum dimension of 3,000 square meters defined the size of the museum. An important factor in its construction was the building materials. Among them were Marmoline products.  

With the participation of quality and reliable products, created within a strict framework of compliance with the specifications of European standards in a number of building materials categories, Marmoline was the ideal choice to meet a number of specific construction needs. Within this context, a range of technical solutions were provided such as the high mechanical strength tile adhesive FLEX 2000, the flexible, resin-based tile adhesive, and LM 400, the white adhesive for bonding marble and granite. 

LM 400 adhesive is a ready-made industrial mortar based on Portland white cement of high strength (I – 52,5), aggregates of Dionysus white marble and special additives to improve the adhesion of marble and granite tiles on difficult surfaces. It is a reliable solution for strong bonding of marble and granite tiles to floors. LM 400 ensures maximum protection of white or colored marbles against stains from the substrate. The addition of MARMOLINE MP 20 resin provides additional strength and elasticity of bonding the marble tile to the substrate. Marmoline’ s knowledge and experience in the production, care and installation of marble tiles made it the main choice for the bonding, grouting and care of the unique marble surfaces with which the new Acropolis Museum was clad.
