Scientists from The Ohio State University have found ceramic tile adhesive that could help to repair damaged ceramic tile.
The finding is published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.
The researchers said that their findings indicate that the ceramic adhesive is a better adhesive for ceramic tiles than previously thought.
The new adhesive was developed by an Ohio State team and was developed to replace older ceramics in the construction of buildings.
The study, led by PhD candidate Matthew Gebhard, was funded by the National Science Foundation and The Ohio Society of Engineering Engineers.
A previous study published in Nature Nanotechnology found that ceramic tile, in addition to being highly durable, also has a number of advantages for structural durability.
The ceramic tile is the material used in many buildings and other structures.
Researchers have long known that the material can be a key component of buildings and have developed a number and types of ceramic tile repair products, including cement and plaster.
But, to date, the durability of ceramic tiles has not been evaluated for their ability to withstand severe weather events.
“We’ve known for a long time that ceramic tiles can be damaged in the field, but not necessarily when they’re in use,” Gebhatts said.
“When we tried to find an adhesive that is able to repair ceramic tiles in the lab, we thought that we would be able to do it without a material that is a ceramic, and we were surprised that it was actually a ceramic adhesive.”
Gebhart and his colleagues used the ceramic tile as a substrate for their study.
The team took a ceramic tile from a large ceramic tile factory and coated it with the ceramic-adhesive.
The tile then was coated with the adhesive and placed in a laboratory dish to be dried and cleaned.
After the tile was dried, the adhesive was applied to the tile using an adhesive-tape method.
The adhesive worked by “focusing the heat generated by the tape onto the surface of the tile,” according to the researchers.
After drying for 24 hours, the researchers found that the adhesive had a high water absorption rate, which is a feature that is common to ceramic adhesive products.
The findings show that the new adhesive could be used to repair a wide range of ceramic surfaces.
The results were also made possible by the presence of the adhesive in the original ceramic tiles.
The authors of the new study also noted that the results are similar to the previous study in which they were able to recover the adhesive from the surface after the adhesive is removed from the tile.
