TAL has introduced a pourable, rapid-setting, flexible, thick-bed adhesive, especially developed for fixing large-format tiles on interior and exterior floors.  The adhesive enables faster and easier bedding of floor tiles and the rapid-setting, flexible formulation means that no latex additive is required for installations in wet areas, exteriors and on surfaces where movement is expected. Grouting can start four hours after tiling, which shortens the installation time and results in faster project turnaround and reduced labour costs.
