Answer: 
Sounds like an inexperienced tile installer messed up your floor. You can tried soaking the tiles in cured grout release, but it is a pricey liquid. Otherwise grind it off with a masonry disc on a 4 1/2" grinder CAREFULLY! Good-luck.

When removing floor tiles, always first carefully take out grout around the tile (but never knock on tiles around because they may become loose too). And after grout is out, then use wide chesel and light hammer to lift that loose tile.
And, use regular mix-with-water mortar for floor applications! Read Less

I assume you are talking about the back of the tile. The good news is you do not have to get all of the adhesive off. Try to use a putty knife or similar tool to remove as much as you can and to get the high spots...if that still does not get enough off, use a rasp. But don't waste your time removing more than you have to...check each tile as you are doing it to see if you have removed enough to use it. Read Less

Answer: 
Spread a layer of adhesive remover over the mastic on the tiles with a foam paintbrush. Apply the adhesive remover paste in a thick layer, taking care to cover all areas of the mastic.
Allow the adhesive remover to soften the mastic. You can test the mastic to see if it is ready to come off by scraping the tile with a utility knife.

A sharp putty knife or wood chisel will shave the mastic off. I emphasize SHARP and for safety purposes wear gloves and eye protection. If the tile has a textured back then after the bulk material has been removed use the corner of the tool to scrape out the hollows.

Answer: 
This product should not be used outdoors where it will potentially be exposed to water and humidity. When moisture hits mastic, it soaks it up and becomes wet again, causing it to lose bond strength.

DO NOT use it on floor, it takes at least 2 days to dry. Avoid wet air and water - or it will "never" dry. For really heavy applications 1 inch thick, well, it will cover around 10 SF, I think, but I not recommend use it too thick - it works better when it light.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by stay away from this product! Forget about using this ptodict for large tiles! It will never get dry - even with minimum adhesive used! on the photo you see a tile that was pulled out after 4 days beeing glued to the wall - the glue is as fresh as it was at day one! July 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tile glue I really like this adhesive because it is already mixed up and you don't have to guess on the consistency. August 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor adhesion after several months This was recommended by a Home Depot associate because we wanted a pre-mixed adhesive. We had problems getting tiles to stay in place with it, and now after several months, a lot of those that originally seemed secure have come loose. We don't blame the associate for recommending it - we wanted pre-mixed, and not mix it yourself mortar. We wish we had bought mortar instead. It is a tremendous amount of labor to clean and re-set these with regular mortar adhesive. Every tile we have used the mortar on has set immediately and not come loose. For us, the mortar is worth the effort to mix it ourselves. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great Didn't dry out too quickly. We tile slowly and we were able to use the whole bucket - full down to the last bit without it drying out. Smooth and easy to work with.will use it again. August 4, 2016
