Answer: 
If this one's not good for "mesh underlayment" , which one is?
FYI i didn't mean to imply there's some kind of separate underlayment; these are 12 x12 of 2 " marble tiles on a mesh backing. will be going onto Duroc (over exterior ply)

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great thin set Thin set was quick to mix and worked well with the stacked stone tiles we ordered. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very disappointing, was it a bad bag? I got this thin set based on reviews for a tub surround. Mixing with recommended water ratio it was very thick and hard to work with and dried too fast. I put the tiles on and when I pulled one off barely any of the back had thin set on it. I pressed hard on the tile and used wood and a rubber mallet to even tiles. Onse I saw that there was no tile coverage I just scrapped all the tiles off and started over. July 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thin-Set Mortar Very easy to use, hold well. Easy cleanup. Back buttering mades for better adhesion of your tile. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always good, consistent and dependable. Great product. Always a dependable product. Easy to mix, install and clean up. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pergo wood laminate floors and area rug. My Pergo wood laminate floors and area rug are beautiful together they were easy to install and look like hard wood also very easy to clean I am very happy with the results. October 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, worth the extra $$. Used this product on 12x24 porcelain tile in my kitchen. I wanted anything I could use to prevent cracks or floor movement at an affordable price within reason. Tiles adhere extremely well I applied to floor with 1/2" groove trowel and also back buttered each tile. I will deffinately use this product again with any other tile work May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First time but not last time This was used for my first time tile project which called for a polymer modified morter thinset. I used this as its reviews were good. I was going to use another versabond product until I got to the store and realized it was only sold in white and I wanted gray.As stated before this was my first tile project, and I feel this stuff worked great. I read on another review somewhere that the perfect mix was 11 cups mortar to 4 cups water,so I tried it and it was perfect. I mixed small batches with power drill and mixer and the work time was great by hours. Will definitely use versabond for my next project when needed. December 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use Sets great works great and actually pretty eay to use April 12, 2016
