    What type of adhesive was it, have you removed all traces? What size are your ceramic tiles?

    It appears to be some kind of contact adhesive and it is impossible to remove all traces ,it took six hours to remove the vinyl

    how much off the contact adhesive is still on the floor?...

    25%..50% etc....

    if its quite alot then you can do 1 off 2 things...

    1...a latex slc over it.

    2... a slurry coat (opc and sbr mix...)..
