Answer: 
BuyerBeware is incorrect. You should NEVER use modified thin sets in a shower as the waterproofing walls/floors don't allow the modified thin sets to dry properly before grout. Only use un-modified thinsets in showers. If you don't know if a thinset is modified or unmodified, just look for something that says latex modified, or any other "adhesive" additive makes it modified. Unmodified are just that, Read More

Answer: 
The conventional wisdom in tiling is straightforward:
Never use any sort of mastic tile adhesive (like this one) or premixed mortar inside a shower, either on the walls or the floor. Use only Portland cement-based mortars that you have to mix up from powder, usually latex-modified thin-set mortars. Mastic is a fast, convenient way to stick tile to various dry wall surfaces, usually drywall. Mastic is Read More
The conventional wisdom in tiling is straightforward:
Never use any sort of mastic tile adhesive (like this one) or premixed mortar inside a shower, either on the walls or the floor. Use only Portland cement-based mortars that you have to mix up from powder, usually latex-modified thin-set mortars. Mastic is a fast, convenient way to stick tile to various dry wall surfaces, usually drywall. Mastic is great for building kitchen backsplashes, dry bathroom walls, and non-functional, purely decorative tile projects. It is not suitable for wet wall applications and it is also not suitable for any functional floor applications.
Anyone who has built up a traditional mortar pan and put in a custom shower tile base would intentionally run a hand through a 10-inch wetsaw rotating at 4000 rpm before using this product or any other mastic on a shower floor.
In my work, which is usually not time-critical, I would never use this product on a shower wall, either. Others might, but it's still risky, and I would never recommend it to a DIYer.
The reason is simple: Portland cement can harden at the bottom of a full bucket of water. Mastic cannot. In any wet wall or floor application, there is always a chance that water will find its way under the tile and cause the mastic to fail.
There are DIY tub and shower tile surrounds built with high-quality impervious tiles and tight sealed grout lines, where the owner-builder conscientiously seals and re-caulks the surround according to a regular maintenance plan. In installations like that, mastic is never used, but if it were, it might not fail for quite some time.
Those surrounds are the exception. In the majority of surrounds, especially DIY surrounds, using mastic adhesive to stick the tile to the walls will cause the surround to fail quickly, and the failure will be nasty, dangerous, and expensive to fix.
Good luck! Read Less

I have used this with translucent honey onyx tile to do an inlaid frame for a very large custom mirror hung in a dry area.

I have used this with translucent honey onyx tile to do an inlaid frame for a very large custom mirror hung in a dry area. I got away with it, but the paint got messy, as can be seen in the picture (the three sides of the wood underneath the tile are unpainted, the back is unpainted oak plywood). The stuff dries white. You can get away with such an application if you make sure you get a full application over the back of the tile by carefully backbuttering your onyx, which I believe DIYers should do anyway whenever they install natural stone tile.
I've used this product's big brother, Custom's SimpleSet white premixed thinset mortar, to do some white marble in a kitchen backsplash in a dry area on an old drywall substrate. I believe that you can get away with using AcrylPro to do your kitchen backsplash in a thoroughly dry area. If you are tiling a marble backsplash behind a sink, I would take the extra step of doing the lowest rows of marble tile with Custom's Natural Stone and Large Tile White Mortar. The little box of Custom's Glass Tile White Premium Thinset Mortar would most likely be even better suited for such an application.

Answer: 
Yes, if no contact with water. Air should be dry, and weather should be good, and after when you done it still be good until Acryl pro dries up, (couple of days or may be a week if its cold weather) and then you will grout it.
For example, regular dry mortar mix sets in 2 hours after being mixed with water, so may be better use that instead.

Regular dry mortar mix better anyway, because it dries in 2 hours and then can be grouted.

Answer: 
You probably should've allowed the product (Acrylic Pro) to "fully" cure or dry at least 48hrs BEFORE you grouted. Grouting over top of tile that hasn't set or cured properly only adds more moisture and condensation, which extends your drying time.

IMPORTANT: If you over-apply it to the wall, immediately remove as much as possible from between the tiles (using a small screwdriver or similar tool) to ensure good grout lines because removing excess adhesive after it dries is quite a lengthy, back breaking, tedious chore, don't ask me how I know. I used 1 gal for 30 sq feet.

My wife is an artist and she hand made, carved, glazed and fired over 260 ceramic tiles for our kitchen backsplash. It was quite an endeavour and our kitchen came out amazing. As it's a one-of-kind custom, we were very careful to get the BEST product we could find to use for the initial adhesion of these tiles to our kitchen backsplash. AcrylPro worked great. It's adhesion is amazing but still gives some working time to get each and every tile placed just right. This is actually the first time either of us has ever done ceramic tile work and we actually impressed ourselves and our friends by the way this project came out. And without a doubt, AcrylPro was a positive asset in completing this job which resulted in our kitchen looking amazing. I would highly recommend this product to anyone tackling a ceramic tile job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Type of Tiling Application is Key..... This somewhat costly, "Mastic" like product, will save you the inconvenience of having to mix up thin-set mortar, provided you use it uniformly thin, in a non-humid environment, on appropriately sized smaller tile. Failure to religiously follow directions will result in failure and your wish that you never used this product to begin with. I am a home owner with many construction skills including tile work. I have used this product extensively with both successes and failures, that were ultimately do to my fault, for not strictly following the product directions to a level, as if your life depended on it. I have had the best success in using this product on 4" square indoor wall tile applied with an uniform thickness of 1/16 to 2/16ths of an inch. If you choose to use this product thicker than 1/8 " in a humid environment using very large floor tile on an uneven floor, you will likely have failure because the product might not ever set.
