Because of the closed grained nature of granites, ordinary adhesives are not enough for permanent fixing of granite to the cementitious surfaces. The deficiencies in the ordinary adhesives are seen from the weeping granite joints which stain the granite and make them look ugly and eventually the granites start coming off. Perma Granite Tile Adhesive (GTA) is a specially developed product keeping in mind the closed grained nature of the granites and the long aesthetic life of the surface. Perma Granite Tile Adhesive is a two component product comprising of pre-weighed & packed liquid and powder components in the proportion of 8Kgs of Powder and 2 Litres of liquid.
