Currently, one of the new methods in installing and implementing ceramic tiles in the construction industry and also for home renovations is the use of ceramic tile adhesives (چسب کاشی و سرامیک ).
Using glue to install ceramic tiles will make your ceramic tile installation easier, faster and of better quality, and it can be said with confidence that using glue to install ceramic tiles is better than other methods such as working with tiles. And ceramic is much better and less troublesome.
Types of ceramic tile glue
In general, it should be said that there are two forms of tile adhesive in the market: powder and paste.
1- Powder tile adhesive
Ceramic adhesives and powder adhesives (چسب کاشی پودری) are prepared from types of dry mixes (DryMix) that are designed and produced on the basis of cement. Its effective mechanism is due to the many polymers used in its construction, after mixing with water and drying, it is impervious to water and moisture.
2- paste adhesives
Paste adhesives are generally used to install ceramic tiles on concrete or plaster walls. These adhesives have a good resistance to oil, acid and water materials and you should know that it is necessary to ensure that the surface is level before using it and to use it on surfaces such as plaster, straw and earthen walls, you must first apply mortar to these types of surfaces. coated with cement.
3- Standard tile adhesive
This type of glue is designed based on cement and mineral materials and modified with synthetic resins and special additives with a standard setting time and has high adhesion and strength and can be used only by adding water.
This product is very suitable for gluing all kinds of mosaics, tiles, bricks, ceramics with the ability to absorb water and natural stones.
Among the advantages of standard glue, it can be mentioned that it is compatible with the environment, reducing slippage, good adhesion strength, high workability time, and also the possibility of using it in wet places.
Depending on the type of work and its smoothness, usually 3 or 4 kg of standard tile adhesive is enough to cover one square meter.
4- two-component tile adhesive
As the first component, this product is made on the basis of cement and minerals, and as the second component of this product, it is based on polymer resin modifier based on acrylic. These types of adhesives have high resistance to water penetration and are antibacterial.
This glue (چسب سرامیک پرسلان ) is suitable for use in places with high traffic pressure such as parking lots, shopping centers, cinemas and high traffic places. Another important application of this type of glue is its use for slabs, stones and ceramics with dimensions larger than 60 x 120 cm.
This type of glue has many advantages. Among them, it can be mentioned that it is antibacterial, very high adhesion strength and power, high working time, excellent resistance to moisture and water, as well as high flexibility.
The consumption of tile adhesive for dimensions of 60 x 120 cm is about ten kilograms per square meter.
5- Pool tile glue
Pool glue is based on cement and minerals modified with synthetic resins and special additives. This glue has a very high resistance to water and has high flexibility. Among its other characteristics, we can mention the ability to withstand a wide range of heat and high adhesive strength. This type of glue can only be used by adding water. The use of pool glue, as its name suggests, is suitable for environments such as swimming pools, saunas, jacuzzis, fountains, and places in direct contact with water.
About 3 to 4 kilos of pool glue is needed to cover one square meter of surface.
6- AAC block glue
AAC block adhesive is designed on the basis of cement and minerals, modified with synthetic resin and special additives. This type of adhesive is used to increase the strength and adhesion of aerated concrete blocks, increase the level of the wall, increase the speed of work, reduce the weight of the structure and also reduce the consumption of mortar, reduce the required thickness of mortar and the thickness of the structure, reduce water consumption, and of course, it is very easy to use. It is suitable.
This type of glue can be used for gluing AAC blocks such as Hablex and Silex, light and heavy cement blocks, clay, brick, etc.
