“ Tile Adhesive and Grout for tiling. „
After years of tiling I found the tile and fix tile adhesive and grout pretty good especially as a tile adhesive, as opposed to using it for grout. The reason I say this is that when used as a grout I found it dried fairly quick on the tiles and was a real pain to remove from the surface of the tiles themselves. The use of it just as an adhesive was great because it adhered to the tiles and the wall really well.
I would rather use a separate grout and adhesive. On ceramics, Most Other grouts will leave a fine dust on the surface of the tiles once the surplus grout is sponged off. This is easy to dust off with a dry cloth.
As an adhesive you can usually lay around 11m² of wall tiles with a 10L tub. I only used it as a grout and adhesive a few times. I managed to lay around 8m². The overall coverage for grouting depends on how big the tiles are and how big the grout lines are. Basically the more gaps to fill in the smaller area the tub will cover.
The tub its self is easy to open and close again in between jobs. Remember to close the lid when not in use as the adhesive will dry out. The adhesive is quite a thick creamy consistency. Which is good as it spreads out nicely.
You get a plastic spreader inside the tub for applying the adhesive to the wall. I would not bother with the spreader for bigger jobs but it is fine if you are just tiling a small sink splash back. The spreader can come in handy for spreading the adhesive to tight spaces where you cannot use the usual spreader.
Most tile adhesives have anti mould in it. This does work to some extent but I find not in extreme cases when there is allot of damp in the air.
The adhesive is averagely priced at around £14 to £19 available in B & Q.
Over all a good buy and a great make. You can trust the tiles to stick with this adhesive as long as you have prepared the wall properly.
