Tile Adhesive

Ceramic tile adhesive is a compound materials of sand, cement and some chemical additives which premixed as a certain formula or receipe.

The best tile adhesives consist of cement, sand, limestone, water, and some performance additives, and are mainly used to bond tile to adhesive. Cellulose ethers (e.g., HPMC, MHEC) and Redispersible Polymer Powder (RDP) are part of the tile adhesives formulation, and they play an essential role in improving product efficiency and performance.

Cement-based tile adhesives are one of the most extensive applications of our cellulose ethers and redispersible polymer powder. Our products can effectively enhance product adhesion and cohesion, sag resistance, workability, hydrophobicity, and final product consistency.

We also offer tailored formulation to best suit your specific raw materials and special local requirements.

The Role of SLEO cellulose and RDP in Tile Adhesive:

●Improved sag resistance: The modified SLEO cellulose and RDP can improve sag resistance feature of the adhesives. Better sag resistance means that tile adhensive can be applied more efficiently to walls without sag.

●Improved workability: Better leveling and reduced stickiness of SLEO cellulose and RDP can be applied easily to adhesives, which easy to operate and construction, and can significantly improve the construction efficiency.

●Improved adhesion: SLEO cellulose and RDP have good thickening effect, It can enhance the consistency and bond strength of the Tile adhesives. Suitable addition rate of it makes it has better adhesion feature.

●Improved heat and freeze thaw resistance: After add the SLEO cellulose and RDP, the heat and freeze thaw resistance of tile adhesives has improved.

●Improved water retention: SLEO cellulose and RDP substantially reduce the loss of water into absorbing substrates in formulations. The water retention ability of MelaColl also strongly enhances the adhesion strength of wall tile adhesives. This is because the binders have enough time for hydration and at the same time do not lose water.
