    Tile-like coatings (TLC) were first used in food processing plants, but their use spread rapidly to hospitals, schools, and other places where sanitation is improved by jointless walls, or where thicker coatings are needed to withstand mechanical damage. In 1963, Subcommittee 48 on Tile-Like Coatings of ASTM Committee D-1 on Paint, Varnish, Lacquer, and Related Products defined them as “systems applied by conventional means and intended to produce vitreous (tile-like) finishes on relatively rough masonry or other cementitious walls and ceilings. They are generally thicker, harder, and more washable than conventional paints.”
