TILE ADHESIVES VS CEMENT
Tradionally, tiles have been installed by using cement and sand slurry. However this method has its inherent problems. Because cement shrinks after drying it leaves hollow spaces below tile surface. These are weak spots in a floor and any impact will result in tile chipping or cracking. For a durable and trouble free installation of tiles adhesives is the right solution.
BONDING ISSUES OF CEMENT & TILE ADHESIVES
The mixture of cement dries and shrinks. This creates void underneath the tiles after tile installation is done. This results in poor bonding between the tile and cement and also generates an aesthetic problem by allowing fragile areas to develop cracks with time.
