There are a number of standard classifications of tile adhesive that determine how flexible the adhesive is and this should concern you if you are installing tiles in a position where there is likely to be movement after the tiles have been fixed in place. This could be ongoing movement due to temperature and moisture changes such as floor tiles laid over a timber floor, which is liable to expand and shrink as the climate changes. It could also be tiling installed in a new building where a concrete or brick structure may initially be subject to some settling. But movement of a tiled surface can also happen to a lesser extent in other situations such as a tiled bath panel which may suffer some minor movement every time the bath is filled.
