Why you should attend?

Cementitious tile adhesives are used to bond tiles to surfaces in construction, ensuring stability and durability. They consist of cement, aggregates, and additives for enhanced performance.

Cement is pivotal in CO2 reduction. Nonetheless, reducing its content can compromise the performance of the cementitious formulations.

In this course, we will show how you can use different raw materials to accomplish different performance parameters and formulate high-quality cementitious tile adhesives.

Main topics:


  • The different cementitious tile adhesives variants, standards, and approvals.
  • What additives influence each performance parameter.
  • Formulation principles.
