Substrate movement is subjected to heavy-traffic

Parking area and department store are considered to be extensive area with heavy traffic. Tile grout also should be flexible for this resistance and leave the movement joint. Movement joints of 5 - 6 mm wide should be left at every area of 60 m2 for small tiles (smaller than 30 x 30 cm) and at every area of 30 m2 for tiles that are bigger than 30 x 30 cm.

Solution

Flexible grout bonding property and the absorption to compressive strength should be considered to use in heavy-traffic in order to support the movement of substrates and tiles.
