Tile adhesive is ready mixture that consists of selected fine sand, and other additives to improve its essential properties for laying tiles. There are different tile adhesives available that are used as per the work area. High performance tile adhesive can be used to lay tiles on existing tiles, on polished cement, on wooden substrates or on other special substrates.
Cracks are usually developed in tiles cause of Cement and sand mixture that is used for fixing tiles which doesn’t form a level base to cover the entire tile surface. Moreover, cement shrinks over a period of time, leading to hollow spaces under the tile. This is what causes the cracking of tiles or the hollow sounding tiles.
Still worried about crack formation in tiles !!!
Here’s a perfect solution to it.
