You can use our Tile Adhesive over existing tiles, however you will need to rough up the existing tiles, so the adhesive can adhere to them.

In order to achieve the best finish, the old tiles should be removed and the surface prepared. Check out our Good Ideas Leaflet 37 for further information.

Is this a flexible grout suitable for use with underfloor heating?

We would suggest using this adhesive in conjunction with Primer & Admixture (230641), as this will improve flexibility. You must always use a flexible tile adhesive when tiling on top of an electric underfloor warming system as this allows for expansion and contraction. If you don't, the adhesive will crack and the tiles will become unattached.

No. It is a very fast setting adhesive and you will ruin your tiles if used as a grout.
