It is been nearly half a decade for Aathaworld Sdn Bhd to do adhesive works. From our experience, dueling with adhesive products is not an easy task because each bonding agent has its strength and weaknesses. Even the material would also affect the result, not even include weather and environment. To make things even harder is that it required calculation and tedious preparation. Any mistake or miscalculation would ruin the whole batch of adhesive bonding and no repair can be done but total reinstall again. Adhesives chemical is not a product that rookie should be messing around and proper skill and procedure is the key to a quality finish. Aathaworld has gone through thick and thin as a supplier who gives tutorials to many contractors and many times the skill and experience is not up to par and end up our contractor has to take over the installation. Adhesive bonding agents can be usually separated into cementitious and construction product, wood product, automotive application and etc. The most command one is the cementitious and constructions products. The application includes tile adhesive, vinyl applications, lamination application, composite product, roof panel and etc. Our bonding agent application is able to fit all range of buildings, such as commercial, infrastructure, low-rise, high-rise, residential building, and industrial plant.
Tile adhesive is usually a homopolymer agent that is suitable for all cementitious products bonding. It can be used for interior and exterior such as Concrete structures, renderers, and all cementitious products. Common usage includes wood, metal, ceramic tiles, concrete, brick, and marble surface. Tile adhesive is essential for our country Malaysia because the weather is relatively high humidity atmosphere and raining season made up the majority days in a year which affect the quality and durable of tile bonding. Customer usually chooses tile to do the installation for wall and flooring is because they know it is durable and easy to maintain. The importance of bonding agent cannot be neglected as each building will normally have non-identical tiles for different parts of the rooms; hence, we shall get some sort of strong bonding agent in order to ensure the adhesion is there as well as water will not penetrate the building. If Water sips through the building internal structure it will affect the structural integrity and it might cause safety issues and another extra maintenance cost to the owner. So to take extra precaution for a certain area, a premixed water resistance cementitious adhesive need to be applied to counter the harsh environment so that it can be reduced and minimize the water damaged. Today, suppliers of bonding agent in Malaysia revolve around the central region and there are multiple competitive brands in the market that compete with each other but yet they still survive due to one key factor, the product market is huge.
During the design stage, most architects and engineers will specify the tile adhesive brands (most of them will include the word “equivalent”), level of specification to any designated area in the building. It is essential to treat different areas of the building differently in order to prevent so-called “over-specified” or “under-specified” issues. These two issues required to handle since it is interrelated closely with safety and financial. Tile adhesive supplier Malaysia usually advise client adjusting more budget for those areas that potentially will cause safety issues, i.e. the wall tile that was not properly installed and inferior adhesive chemical will drop and damage the building users. However, developer or contractor will normally pay more attention to structural component of the building such as load-bearing concrete column and concrete beam, from the admixture to the surface; they are more likely neglected this part and assumed will not cause severe issue afterward. According to tile adhesive supplier in Malaysia too, structural elements may turn up to be a serious issue if no proper waterproofing being treated initially. This is due to water penetration the inner part of the concrete, steel in touch with water and subsequently corrosion process could occur. Corrosion will subsequently affect the structural strength of these components, from foundation to load bearing wall as well as the roof structure.
Lamination of flooring is easy but require an extra cautious job. The underlayment usually need to be solid and fully cured is usually recommended before the lamination bonding takes place. Any cracks and cleaning must be done before the adhesive start to ensure the full bonding strength of the agent. Failure to do so will result in loss of time and money. Material that is suitable for lamination is usually varnished parquet, plywood, chipboard, vinyl tiles, carpets and many more. A proper waterproofing needs to be applied to the lamination floor if it would easily be filled with water or a humid environment. Heavy duty usage is usually not recommended for laminating flooring as sometimes is not the adhesive that causing the problem but the material itself are the downfall. Other similar application includes vinyl flooring, ceramic tiles flooring and etc.
Other Adhesive product
Silicon sealant is also an important product in building repair. It acts as an easy filling for the building cracks or small gap. Although it is usually not a green product to be used its versatility and price is what makes it so widely used. Small tile gap can also apply silicon sealant and any repair that is small are usually recommended. The adhesive product can have water resistant properties so even on the exterior of a building would not have any issue. The application is easy and no mixing is required. The only thing about silicon adhesive is that it must be let dry to achieved full strength or else it would not result in quality work.
