Answer: 
This adhesive is designed for ceramic application, and I would not recommend putting any kind of tile on plywood, that being said I would use a product like liquid nails after cleaning and removing any loose plywood and of course also the tile if it is the pre-existing tile.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! Great product! Consistency is very different from other premixed tile adhesives, not like fluffed up marshmallow that you see on the cheaper ones, very smooth and more like a sour cream. Excellent coverage. Easy clean up. Would highly recommend it for WALL applications. June 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good quality product This mastic was easy to apply and clean up where neccesary February 17, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by No "stick to it" kind of material!! I had many tile pops after 3 days of drying time and floor was checked before any work started for levelness and it was, all the way around. I prepared surface per the instructions stated, even though not any different from previous practices. This is the first time I tried this fish glue and it will be absolute last time! Extra work is time consuming and very expensive! Customer requested I use all HD stuff, last time doing so! (mastic and adhesive anyway)!! June 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great adhesive for ceramic floor tile over raw plywood. I used this product over a year ago with 1 foot by 1 foot ceramic floor tile over new unfinished plywood. The plywood was screwed down every 9 inched to the floor jousts. I dollied a full size front load washer over the floor (holding my breath) with no cracks. This order was for another similar floor, again it did a great job. August 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3.5 Gal Capital CT12 ceramic tile adhesive and mastic The cheapest one on HomeDepot.com , but surprisingly an excellent product. Very easy to clean up, love the fast dry time. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EXCELLENT ITEM AND GOOD VALUE this bucket covered shower project with 2 walls that were 32''x96 and 1 wall 60''x96'' May 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Did a great job. Went on easily and covered well. Did what it should have with very little effort. March 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product this stuff really goes down easy. it is exactly as advertised. adheres to plywood with no additional prep work and the tile sticks solidly. it's a little pricey but worth the extra in my opinion. October 16, 2013
