Tile Adhesives: Best friend for next-generation tiles
Given its adaptability and resilience, tiles are important not just for flooring but also for kitchen backsplashes and bathroom walls. The best way to install these tiles is by using tile adhesive. Formulated from a combination of graded sand, cement, and added polymers, this adhesive has a high bonding strength and can be used to install tiles on concrete, cement or wooden substrate. As compared to traditional mortar, it has several advantages.
Tile Adhesive is premixed in a factory environment and undergoes stringent quality controls. It is easy to use and minimizes the mess created on-site. This tile mortar is ready to use as soon as it has been mixed with water. It can then be applied with a notched trowel. The slurry dries at an even pace and thus gives masons time to even it out. Unlike traditional slurry, it does not sag on vertical surfaces and hence holds tiles in the exact position that they were placed. Besides, tile adhesive has self-curing properties and is water-retaining. This keeps it from shrinking as it dries.
