Tile adhesives & grouts

Tile adhesives

Tile adhesives are bonding cementitious polymer-modified mortars formulated for fixing all types of tiles (e.g. ceramic, glass, natural stones) on a wide range of substrates (cementitious, wood, plaster). Typical application thickness: 5 mm.

The switch from smaller to larger format tiles is an ongoing trend. Initially such tiles were mainly used for non-residential locations but now they also a favourite choice for houses and apartments.
Tile adhesives require a high wettability: they can thus be applied on one single step, avoiding the double-embedding. As such a 15% productivity gain can be achieved. To achieve such wettability, superplasticizers are required. They are also commonly used in fluid tile adhesives.
