The type of adhesive you use depends on where you're tiling, what you're tiling on, and how experienced you are at tiling.
Thinset mortars come in powder
form and must be mixed with either water or an acrylic additive. (Some
powdered thinsets have an additive already blended in.)
Thinsets have a stronger bond and
are more flexible than pre-mixed adhesives. They can also support a lot
of weight, so they're often used for floor installations.
can be used in wet areas as well as those exposed to heat. Thinsets are
often available in dark grey or white. If you’re using a light-colored
grout, it’s a good idea to use the white thinset.
To mix thinset mortar pour a small
amount of water (or liquid additive, if desired) into the bottom of a
large bucket, then pour in the powder. (Using the liquid first will
help cut down the dust. But we still recommend wearing a respirator
when mixing thinset.)
mixing the material with a margin trowel to get the liquid worked into
the powder. You CAN continue mixing with the margin trowel, but if you
have access to a ½-inch drill, we recommend using the drill and a
mortar-mixing paddle attachment.
When using a drill, run the drill at a slow speed to avoid mixing air into the

I would recommend Roff Rainbow
Tile Mate Epoxy (Base + Hardener) & Filler for grouting your tiles. This
provides high degree of resistant to abrasion and impact. It will definitely
help you keep your tiles protected from sun rays and make it last long.

|If it is 8 floors height, tiles may not be a good option. Tiles can heart a person if any tile is broken after few years. |
I would suggest Aluminum Composite Panel. it can be a better option. many shades are available.
