The realization of tile joints (mosaic or larger tiles) brings the final touch to the installation of a wall tile. The joints also contribute to the cohesion of the tiles, but especially to the tightness of the tiled panel. They also contribute to the decorative character of the tiles. Formerly offered only as a powder to mix with water, the joint paste is now ready for use. It must be fluid enough for easy application, clean easily with sponge and do not crimp and crack when drying.
Joint compound does not only have a technical function. It participates directly in the decorative character of the tiles. Formerly banal gray or white, today it takes color. Some brands now offer wide ranges of colors and shades, as well as shiny and glittery effects. These colors and effects are unalterable and UV resistant.
