Tiling surfaces are become very common in recent time, almost all the floors are covered with tile from footpaths to building floors and in swimming pools etc. Various tile fixing solutions are available for different kind of places depends on the requirement of area. Most commonly cement paste is used to fix tile. All what requires is pure paste of cement mix with water it is necessary to make sure that the mixture should neither be so thick neither thin it should in such condition that it can stay at one place. Just place the paste on concrete floor and start placing tile on it.
Adhesive for tiling may differ from material to material. Like for plain tiles the adhesive use will differ but for stones and marbles it may vary. The requirement and gripping power of every substance vary. Heavy duty tile adhesives are powder based polymer which has modified kind of cement as the key base. These kinds of adhesives are designed especially for applications such as: Vertical surfaces of internal and external both, for mosaic and on granite as well. This adhesive has an ability of waterproofing also. This application is also suited for fixing some huge formats like: glazed surfaces of vitrified and ceramic surfaces and for fixing of natural stones etc.
Modified white polymer or white tile adhesives are based on adhesive of flexible cement with the properties of non slump or slip and non shrink. A thin bed or a think one which is used for the fixing of tiles which have absorbent and non absorbent properties for the external and internal areas of walls or floors to screeds, brick, concrete, cement render or blocks. It is recommended to apply it internally for approving the cement sheet and gypsum building boards. It has very high strength of bond 1.7MPa; deformation is high 2.5 mm and it has non slump property.
The tile on tile application requires only mixing it with water and it becomes ready for use. It has some excellent characteristics which make it work in water filled areas as well, due to its waterproofing property. It gives adhesion which is of excellent quality and causes the shrinkage amount very less. It requires no kind of mechanical key or any hacking on the surfaces. It is very flexible to accommodate the moments such as thermal and physical. This is very suitable for using in all the areas either indoor or outdoor. It is necessary to mix 1 part of water with minimum 3 parts of powder to form paste. And the surface should be clean from all the hefty and small impurities.
Tile adhesive is a polymer which is blended and it is a modified king of cement power adhesive for tile. It is used because it gives a very good kind of bond on the cement surfaces such as: concrete surfaces and plaster surfaces etc. It has one more extraordinary quality of becoming a barrier a waterproof one between the surfaces and provides best king of grabbing property. Tile adhesive can be easily applied on almost all the areas from water filled places like swimming pool to cement surfaces like floor etc. It requires no amount of curing and no or low shrinkage.
Tile grout could be a pre emulsified mixture of inorganic chemical compound cement, hierarchal sand and different ingredients providing onerous, uniformly coloured, abrasion, acids and alkali resistant joints with larger adhesion and compression strength.
