Abstract: An efficient adhesive bonding of exterior ceramic tiles applied on façades is an obvious important factor to ensure the safety and the durability of the façade. The failure of adhesive bonding is a common issue with relevant technical and economical consequences.

The aim of this work is to present an evaluation of the performance overtime of adhesives systems in bonded ceramic tiles on façades, based on extensive experimental research works carried out at the Laboratory of Building Physics (LFC).

A case study is presented which evaluate the performance of adhesives systems to be used on the façades of a building located near the sea. For this purpose, accelerated ageing tests are performed following two different ageing procedures, allowing the comparison of the performance over time of the systems under analysis.
