I have just (ceramic) tiled the downstairs toilet and boxed some water
pipes in using 12 mm MDF on a 47x47mm frame. On one section of the boxed
section is a removable panel of 18 mm MDF on which are two 200x300 mm
ceramic tiles. This panel has to be removable for access to the stop
tap, and it is held in place by 2 magnetic catches. Prior to tiling, I
primed the MDF with diluted (5:1) PVA adhesive. The tile adhesive I used
was Unibond waterproof wall tile adhesive.
After letting the adhesive dry for 48 hours, I can pick the panel up and
the tile are loose. Can anyone please advise on the correct way to
stick ceramic tiles to MDF and suggest a good adhesive.
What about buying a tin of Evo-Stik contact adhesive (and being
careful about positioning the tiles before you press them on!)?
