What is Tile Adhesive?
Tile adhesive is available in pre-prepared mixed forms that are ready to use or a powder form tile adhesive that you can mix yourself. For convenience, the ready mixed tile adhesive is the easiest to use. Most tile adhesive products are water resistant for use with ceramic tiles in showers, bathrooms or kitchens. It is worth choosing a rapid drying tile adhesive as some will dry quickly, meaning you can use the tiled area again very soon, which is important in bathrooms and kitchens. Many tile adhesive mixes are combined meaning you can use the tile adhesive to grout the tiling as well. For kitchen and bathroom use it is best to use a tile adhesive with built-in resistance to mould as this will then withstand the frequent moisture of these areas.
