Natural stone tiles are a popular choice for both residential and commercial floor and wall installations. A versatile material, stone can contribute to a stunning finish or a rustic charm.
However, natural stone is a complex tile. Despite its durability and timeless appearance, it can be very sensitive to certain chemicals, particularly those with a low pH. So it’s important that you select the right adhesive solution before starting the installation process.
Natural stone tile adhesives: Smart benefits
When applying stone tiles to your wall or floor, it’s important to take special care in selecting the proper installation material system. Any mishaps during installation can have lasting effects on the visual impact of your stone tiles, and ultimately, your living space. Therefore, eliminating the risk of stains and blemishes from water or more acidic liquids is key.
Our natural stone tile adhesive products are specially, polymer-modified to meet the complex demands that come with natural stone materials.
Due to the extreme rigidity of stone tile, it’s important to select a stone tile adhesive that is somewhat flexible yet still provides for superior bond strength. With this in mind, most of our natural stone tile adhesive products are polymer modified.
If you are using uncalibrated materials for your stone tile, our thick-bed adhesives are ideal. They provide full coverage of even the most awkward surface areas and, with a thickness of up to 25mm, help you achieve rustic-looking stone installation with ease.
We also provide water resistant adhesives. Neglecting the use of a specific shower tile adhesive can cause warping, curling or even discoloration of natural stone and tile over the life of the installation.
