Why Tile adhesive ?

Conventional Story

cement Paste

Cement Paste Shrinks resulting in hollowness behind Tiles.

CONCRETE Plaster
 
 

Why Tile adhesive ?

  • Cement paste applied at only center of tile and not throughout substrate which will create void space behind tile through which water can seep through
  • Cement consumption is high
  • Protection layer: geotextile
  • Cement paste does not have slip resistance in green stage
  • Tiles must be soaked in water prior use
  • Tile on Tile application not possible
 
 

Criteria to select Cementious Tile Adhesive (CTA)

Tile Microscopic Structure

Ceramic wall tile has water absorption of 10-13% and floor tile has water absorption of 3-6%.

Poselano tile has water absorption of 0.5-3%

Vitrified and glass mosaic tile has water absorption less than 0.5%

APPLICATION METHODS

Floating method : Adhesive applied only to the fixing surface , usally with a trowel to obtain uniform layer and than combed with notched trowel. The tiles are than fixed before a film forms on the surface of the adhesive

Floating and buttering method : Adhesive applied on to the fixing surface and on reverse side of tile.. Method adopted for bigger tile of size more than 400mmx400mm

Tile Adhesive

Thin-bed : Tiling with Tile Adhesive

Tile Adhesive

Flow-bed : Tiling with Tile Adhesive in Fluid Consistence

Tile Adhesive

Thick-bed : Tiling on fresh screed
