1.1 Cementitious tile adhesive formulations
Tile adhesive formulations are usually developed as a compromise between many objectives, such as:
1) Fulfilling minimum classification requirements in accordance with certain standards
2) Maximizing a certain subset of performance characteristics
3) Improving certain fresh-state application properties
4) Minimizing formulation costs
Furthermore, the problem of finding the best possible formulation for a certain combination of properties at a given cost is generally subject to some constraints, such as the availability of raw...
