There are many types of natural tile adhesives, but not all types of stone require the same adhesive.
Adherence to the right natural tile ensures flawless typing, and ensures quick and easy use. However, the wrong choice of paste can lead to failure by affecting the visible or tangible structures of natural stone tile. Therefore, it is important to choose the best adhesion for a particular type of natural stone. How to choose tile adhesives for fixing natural stones tiles
Natural stone typing can be a key to creating a certain atmosphere, however, laying tiles requires special care especially when it comes to keeping tile tiles in place. As there are many types of natural stone, there are also many adhesive options, but not all adhesives are suitable for every type of stone. When choosing the best tile adhesive for fixing natural stones, some important questions need to be answered.
1. What is the surface made of?
The first factor to consider when choosing a natural stone adhesive is the stone substrate or tiles on which it will be placed. What materials are made of substrate? Is it brave or sucking? Does it carry the weight of the tiles? These are all factors that define what natural stone adhesives can be used on a particular substrate. Find out what kind of adhesive your substrate needs!
Always read the manufacturer’s advice for adhering to the appropriate substrates and tiles to avoid costly mistakes. 2. What type of natural stone is used?
The term natural stone tiles include all tiles made of natural stone. These can be divided into three groups: colored, non-calcareous stones and slide:
• Careful natural stones: types of rocks that contain calcium carbonate such as limestone and marble and certain types of sand-stones.
• Non-calcareous natural rock: natural types of minerals that do not contain calcium carbonate including granite, sandstone and basalt.
• Slide: a long-formed metamorphic stone. Results from a combination of other types of stones and minerals.
The most important difference between the types of stones in terms of the choice of attachment is its porosity. High-quality natural stone tiles such as limestone and sandstone require adhesive adhesion to tile tiles. Incoming tiles such as marble and granite can be combined with a wide range of types of adhesives. And the color of the tile is as important as the light or translucent color (marble and limestone) should never be combined with a colored adhesive. The paste layer can be indicated by a tile that touches the hue of the finished tile. 3. In what environment are tiles or tiles placed?
The most common natural tile applications occur on walls and floors. However, these two applications cannot be eliminated with the same adherence. The walls need vertical binding, which is why the adhesive should be strong enough to hold the tiles in place even when the adhesive is not completely cured. And the weight of the wall tile affects the choice of adhesive. When laying natural stone tiles on the floor, the need for air adhesion should be considered. Most natural stone tile adhesives require therapeutic air, however, flooring other treatments are of great benefit as there is not much air under the floor tiles. Types of tile adhesive for fixing natural stones tiles
The adhesion of natural stone tiles is plentiful, and if used properly it can all lead to faster and faster, stronger and more durable materials. Here you can find the three most common types of natural stone adhesive tiles. Remember that these are not the only types: contact us and find out more about adherence options.
1. Cement-based adhesive: Cement-based adhesives, also known as mortar, come in two types: cushioned adhesive. These can be used to lay many natural stone tiles as long as they are not paved like marble and granite. Typical colour options are white and grey.
2. Construction epoxy: epoxy is one of the strongest adhesives today. In the correct formulation the construction of high strength epoxy can also be used in natural stone tying. Epoxy tends to be flexible, making the glue a good exterior tile, may not be affected by temperature fluctuations or overheating.
3. Custom polymer adhesives: as polymer adhesives are flexible and flexible, they are also suitable for natural stone typing. Flexible wood adhesive gains natural stone. Adhesive construction can also be easily customized to fit the purpose perfectly.
There are also tile attachments with special properties such as heat resistance, in the case of floor heating, sound installation of floor and wall tiles and special attachments for damp areas such as showers and dressing rooms.
It is not always an easy task to choose the adhesive of natural stone tiles as many factors affect the choice. Contact us if you need any help or assistance in choosing the best adherence for your project!
