Wall and floor adhesive, also known as tile adhesive or tile glue, is a type of bonding material used to attach tiles to walls, floors, or other surfaces. It is specifically formulated to provide a strong and durable bond between the tiles and the substrate.
Tile adhesives are typically made from a mixture of cement, sand, and various additives such as polymers and resins. These additives improve the adhesive's properties, such as its flexibility, water resistance, and adhesion strength.
The adhesive is available in different forms, including powder, pre-mixed paste, or ready-to-use adhesive sheets. The choice of adhesive depends on the type of tiles and the surface being tiled.
To use wall and floor adhesive, the surface needs to be clean, dry, and free from dust, grease, or any loose particles. The adhesive is applied to the surface using a notched trowel, which creates ridges that help improve the adhesive's grip. The tiles are then pressed into the adhesive and adjusted to ensure even spacing and alignment.
