on . Posted in Newsletter

The changes in surface texture and density of porcelain tiles in recent years have become a challenging factor in the performance of the adhesive to bond these tiles to the substrates.

Patchy Grout Colours - Learning From Site Examples

on . Posted in Newsletter

One of the most common complaints that TSD receives is regarding discoloured and patchy grout (ignoring efflorescence for this discussion). The response of the complainant is nearly always that our grout is faulty, but this simplistic assertion ignores the fact that we have a Quality Control regime which is intended to pick up this type of issue. When we receive the dry grout powder to test, we always find that it mixes normally and dries to a consistent colour. Therefore with the exception of a few unusual circumstances, the problem is related to something which has happened on site.
