Frequently Asked Questions
As tiles tend to move due to physical movements and thermal changes, it is recommended to leave some space between two tiles while fixing them. These joints are filled to prevent seepage of water and accumulation of dirt. Traditionally, white cement was used to fill joints. However, this causes problems, such as cracks in joints, water seepage in bathrooms and colour fading.
Tiles usually expand and contract due to the changes in ambient temperatures. However, cement is rigid and not flexible-enough to accommodate thermal movements and other physical changes.
Glass mosaic tiles, being made of glass material, are 100% non-porous and prevent cement from giving adequate adhesion to them, which leads to de-bonding.
