What to use to stick vertical pavers to besser blocks?

Hi Guys  

Small help. I am looking to use the vertical pavers

to stick to

Now I do see there are liquid nails as one of the options. But can I use something better and lasting? My experience with liquid nail hasn't been that good.

 

Thanks

Ravi

Hi @ravstk,

 

Natural stone is particularly susceptible to tile glues which have a long cure time and are acidic. There are some tile glues which can be ordered into our stores like Ardex S28 and WA100 but they can be more complicated to use than standard cement-based glue.

 

I've had some discussions with our various glue suppliers and Sikaflex 11FC Plus Polyurethane Adhesive Sealant would be the best D.I.Y. product to use. It is flexible and considerably better suited to this application than liquid nails. I would advise purchasing the sausage 11FC and applying a liberal amount of the adhesive all over the back of the tile and not just in dots or lines.

 

Please let me know if you need further assistance or had any questions.

 

Mitchell

As always thanks Mitchell for your help :).  I will go with sikaflex route but having to apply about 24 tiles how much do you think I will need?

The amount will depend on how much you apply. If you go for a liberal amount as suggested in a zigzag pattern across each tile, I'd buy 7 sausages. You will probably need about 5 but can always take the leftovers back.

Hi @ravstk,

 

As @ProjectPete has mentioned you can always return the unused product. Seven sausages sound about right and should definitely be in the ballpark of what is required.
