The can add a natural decorative element that captures a feature of heritage build and provides a connection to our natural environment. Securing the tiles to the wall can present a challenge – that is finding the most appropriate method of doing so. The solution is a safe effective adhesive that also has sealant qualities.That is the most efficient method of installing tiles on an interior and exterior block wall. It is essential to find a product that works equally efficiently on both walls and is tolerant of temperature fluctuations and weather extremes – especially if open to the elements. There are a number of proprietary adhesives on the market but unfortunately they fall short in the safety stakes.

Interior application should not only be effective but also safe, ensuring the adhesive is solvent free and does not contain any dangerous toxins nor emit nauseous gases or vapours. As for exterior application – the bonding product should have maximum grab ability, be moisture and corrosion resistant and have a tolerance towards the material or masonry to which it is attached.

Primarily, the glue/sealant should have a long lasting shelf life, bond quickly and efficiently and also have a capacity for high tolerance to shrinkage and movement so minor tile adjustments can be implemented effectively during the installation process. A product UV resistance factor will ensure sufficient flexibility for such movement, so it is imperative that any adhesive solution complies in that respect to smooth the installation procedure.
