We want to use a porcelain tile in the living and bedrooms, and lay it with sand and cement (no adhesives). Will the porcelain tile 'stick' to the sand/cement even though no adhesives are used? Or should we use a terracotta tile, even though it is not as strong? What kind of cement should we use, is there a cement that has no VOCs compared to low VOCs - Blue Circle Builders Cement is what our tiler generally uses. Thankyou.
