Is it possible to sikaflex shower tiles for a shower? Would this make them less prone to cracking or grout cracks?

     I'm thinking that you'd want to be sure you were getting a watertight seal around all the edges and that the grout was flexible (and waterproof) but once you got that taken care of, it would be a great solution.

It should work if ceramic tile is a surface that Sikaflex can bond to as well as metal. If it can take the stresses of body skins, it can take the stresses of movement around a shower stall and probably be much better than conventional troweled on mastic. Buses do flex a bit.

They make a grout with flex capabilities. I have some left over. Next time up at bus I'll look at label. I used Ge silicon for adhesive.

Scott, you need to careful I did the Sikaflex on some marble trying to cut a corner in a year you could see all my lines where I applied the Sikaflex my wife was not a happy camper Grin, ceramic tile may be different than a natural stone if it is glazed on both sides I don't know for sure

Vinyl tile grout.  Have found the clear ge silicon did not bleed thru coarse granite I used in previous conversion and tile came up in pieces(little) with hammer and chisel.  The liquid nails brand did show thru granite!  Bob
