Selecting the correct tile adhesive and Grout

Selecting a good tile adhesive is as important as selecting the right type of tiles for a particular project.

When choosing the correct adhesive , one has to consider whether the tile will be applied inside or outside, to the wall or the floor and in a wet or dry area. It is also important to reflect on the kind of setting bed to be used: drywall, concrete or plywood as well as the type of tiles selected.

Types of adhesives
Cement based adhesives are usually available in various working and setting times from 6hr – 24hr settings before grouting can start.
These adhesives are usually grey or white in colour and can be used on Porcelain and low water absorptive tiles such as marble and granite slabs, glass mosaics and ceramic tiles
These cement-based adhesives have excellent bonding properties and are good for both indoor and outdoor applications .

Ready mix adhesives are suitable mainly for use on wood bases. Ready mixed adhesives are in small, medium or large tubs and they are ready to be used as the name suggests.
It is, however, important for consumers to consult with our sales team to receive the correct recommendation of adhesive for the tiling job at hand.
