Failure occuring at the interface between mortar and substrate or associated material.The value equals the adhesive strength.
Maximum strength per unit surface area which can be measured by shear or tensile testing. Usually the adhesion strength is measured in N/mm² or MPa.
Maximum time interval after which the tile’s position in the adhesive layer can be adjusted without a significant loss of adhesive strength.
A capacity of hardened adhesive to be deformed by stresses between the tile and the fixing surface without damage to the installed surface.
The interval between the time when the cementitious adhesive is mixed and the time when it is ready for use.
Maximum interval after application at which tiles can be embedded in the applied adhesives and meet the specified tensile adhesion strength requirement.
The maximum time interval during which the adhesive can be used after mixing.
Downward movement of a tile applied to a combed adhesive layer in a vertical or inclined surface.
The ability of combed adhesive layer to wet the tile.
