Is it possible to install tiles on ceiling if we use a very good adhesive?

Yes, it is very possible and we have done it before! We would recommend an epoxy adhesive with quick curing ability such as Laticrete’s latapoxy 310: it is a spot-on epoxy adhesive which provides permanent bonding. Take note that the success of the installation will depend on the substrate/sulphate surface being strong enough to carry the load without chipping.

If I want to use 60x120cm tiles in a porch area. How can I prevent debonding?

As porches are external areas with vehicular use, the adhesive used will have to be flexible (S2 classification). Ensure that 3mm gap is observed with perimeter joints of 6mm. We would recommend using adhesives with C2TES1 classification. During installation, it should be protected from rain for at least 72hrs, or you could consider using a fast-setting adhesive (C2TEFS1) to shorten the timeframe that it needs to be shielded from rain.
