    wall tiles are usually Ceramic or porcelain.

    When purchasing tile adhesive there are 2 types dispersion and cementicous. Please use the later as this dries and hardens via a chemical reaction. On the bags of adhesive it will let you know the limits and limits of the product. But if the tiles are very heavy please check the surface they are being attached to as there may be a weight issue or the surface may need to be primed prior to tiling"

    "Good morning, the simple answer is, yes you can. But to do so you must first make sure your substrate is suitable. Tile application to walls have a weight rating as follows.

    Plaster 20kg per m2
    Plasterboard 32kg per m2
    Tile backer boards 50-100kg dependent on way fixed.

    Remember these weights will include your tile adhesive and grout.

    Hope this helps,
