Maintain the stunning look of natural stone tiles with our smart adhesives

Natural stone tiles are a popular choice for home floor and wall installations. A versatile material, stone can contribute to a stunning finish or rustic homely charm.

However, natural stone is a complex tile. Despite its durability and shelf-life, 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 application process. 

Smart benefits

When applying stone tiles to your wall or floor, it’s important to minimize damage. Any mishaps during these processes 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 modified to meet the complex demands that come with natural stone flooring or wall stone tiles.

Due to the extreme rigidity of stone tile, it’s important to select a stone tile adhesive that is flexible. With this in mind, most of our natural stone tile adhesive products are polymer-enhanced or polymer modified. Our cementitious solutions also provide high bond strength. 

If you are using uncalibrated materials for your stone tile flooring, 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 tile flooring with ease.

We also provide moisture resistant and ‘showerproof’ adhesives. Neglecting the use of a specific shower tile adhesive can cause warping, curling or even discoloration of natural stone and tile. 

Many of our bathroom-specific solutions are formulated to minimize discoloration or the need for blob fixing after installation. Plus ensure your stone bathroom tiles stay sleek and polished during the grouting process with our white-colored adhesive solutions.
