Impressive bonding for an impervious material
Porcelain tiles are generally denser and more durable than ceramic tiles making them perfect for light and heavy traffic flooring installations.
They are also classed as impervious meaning they have a water absorption of 0.5 percent or less, making them ideal for bathroom, wetroom and kitchen applications.
Porcelain tile adhesives: smart benefits
With such a high performing tile, you need to be sure your porcelain tile adhesive is performing at the same level, providing excellent grab, moisture resistance and curing rates. This makes our bonding solutions the choice for shower tile adhesive.
Our range of ready mixed and powdered porcelain tile adhesives covers a broad selection of porcelain tile installation applications. We have specially formulated products that perform well in either flooring or wall tile installations, and across the spectrum of locations. Our innovative smart polymer-modified adhesives also provide added flexibility to normal cement-based adhesives, improving grab strength and reducing the chance of cracking or shifting of tiles.
