Hot Weather Tiling and Grouting

Conventional portland cement tile-setting beds, thin-set mortars, cement plasters and stuccos are often permanently damaged when subject to hot, dry temperatures or desert climates immediately after installation. High temperatures remove the water content of the mortar required for portland cement hydration, curing and strength development. In addition, rapid drying often causes mortar to crack, crumble or lose bond.
