The performance of the environmentally friendly, dustless tile adhesives launched by Chryso South Africa last year has surprised even seasoned building industry contractors.  The adhesives were used recently, for example, for extensive internal and external tiling in one of the new homes at the Waterfall Country and Equestrian Estate in Sunninghill, Sandton. At this prestigious 200ha estate, being developed by Century Property Developments, there is a strong emphasis on environmental responsibility. There are reportedly more than 2 000 indigenous trees on the site.
