Ceramic & Porcelain Stoneware
It is not just the nature of the subsurface and the choice of tiles that are important for clean laying. In order to obtain a professional looking result, the appropriate adhesive must be used. Although all types are similar in their mostly gray color, not every tile adhesive is suitable for every area of ??application. The following post provides information about which tile adhesive for ceramics & amp; Porcelain stoneware is suitable.
The right tile adhesive is a prerequisite for a professional end result
In interiors, it does not make sense to fix ceramic and porcelain stoneware tiles to the wall or floor using the so-called thick bed method with thick layers of mortar. Nowadays, laying porcelain stoneware & amp; Ceramic tiles commonly used thin bed mortar. It is applied to the substrate with a spatula. Then the tile is laid. When laying with thin-bed mortar, please note: the larger a tile, the larger the teeth of the smoothing trowel used. In general, the nature of the substrate and the area of ??application (indoor or outdoor) decide which tile adhesive is best suited.
Easy Flex tile adhesive - suitable for installation indoors and outdoors
Flexible tile adhesive is a cement mortar to which plastic components have been added. It cures flexibly and has a higher adhesive strength. The term flex refers to curing, not deformability. Since this tile adhesive is less rigid, it reacts better to vibrations, tension, etc. Flex tile adhesive is available in different versions. It is ideal for laying porcelain stoneware and ceramic tiles on difficult substrates, for example on dry screed and plasterboard. Flex tile adhesive is particularly popular when laying large tiles, as large porcelain stoneware and ceramic tiles are less likely to crack by absorbing tension and vibrations. Flexible adhesive can also be used for laying over underfloor heating, surface heating and heating. It is temperature-resistant from -20 ° C to +80 ° C and can be walked on after around 24 hours. Flex glue is also distinguished because it is easy to work with.
