Bonding to Difficult Substrates and Tile

In a technical article featured in Tile Today #94, Fred Gray, LATICRETE Australia Technical Service Manager, provides an informative discussion on bonding difficult substrates & tiles, and why epoxy adhesives are effective when greater chemical resistance or strength is required. 

"Every now and then we come across tiles or substrates that can’t be installed or installed on directly with our regular or even premium cement based adhesive. A cement or dispersion based adhesive may not be able to achieve the bond to the tile or the substrate as required. The water they contain may cause an undesirable physical change in the tile, like in the case of moisture sensitive stone.

Corrosion needs to be controlled or a high PH, for instance, may be too corrosive. It may also be that the adhesive does not have the required chemical resistance for your particular installation. So what do you use when you want to install tiles on steel, stainless steel, or epoxy backed tile to concrete surfaces? When executing installations with steel or polyester, it is desirable there is the least amount of involvement of underlayments or other improvisations where structural integrity is otherwise intact. Direct bonding is preferred." Click here to continue reading.
