Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by radiorick Disappointed. Stiff and hard to work with
In spite of the other reviews, I don't find this as nearly as good as the material I used when I ran out of this stuff! I had 16 square feet of 6" hadn-made glass tiles to lay down for a wall hanging, and started with the Custom product from HD. I ran out (though the box siad I shoudl have had enough) and since the store didn't have any more I had to switch to a product carried at another big box store across the street. Wish I'd purchased that other product first. The Custom material from HD seemed much more gritty, stiffer, and not as easily applied to tiles, harder to spread. Followed the directions to the letter, but stiffer and harder to work with in general. This was surprising because the HD stuff actually used more water per pound than the second product I used (TEC brand). The TEC was much smooth., more compliant, adn seemed to adhere better to the tiles. My next project won't doen with the Custom brand material from HD. I'll stick with the TEC product. Cheaper too.

Don't follow instructions on this one 20 minutes is to long to wait to wipe off the tiles. It's best to do a 2 ft section then wipe the grout off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paffy53 Glass Tile 7 LB. White Premium Thuin-Set Motar
This is the first time I have had the opportunity to use this product. I read all the reviews and decided to give it a shot. Installed glass backsplash in my kitchen. This product was very easy to work with. I am not a professional installer. As result, I work a bit slower than a professional. I found this product didn't set up as fast as I have used other motor. It allowed me to work at my own pace without the mortar solidifying. This was very helpful and not wasteful. I strongly recommend this product. You will be very happy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Virtual911 Easy to use, did the job
This mortar is for applications with transparent or translucent materials where the color behind the materials is important. It is easy to use and does the job. Be sure to read safe installation instructions.

I love this product. It really brought out the color of my glass tiles and made it more brilliant. I was hesitant if it would do what it promised but I took a chance from what I read of the reviews. Glad I did. No regrets.

I had a small tile job, my first one at that. I needed a white quick set, but could only find it in 25 & 50 lb bags. This was the perfect size and was easy to apply.

We installed paper faced translucent glass tile that was costly and I didn't want to ruin the effect by using the wrong type of thin-set This thin-set was perfect! Easy to use and worth every penny!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chazoo Easy to mix, strong initial tack, no sag, no tile stains, no scratches. Perfect! Highly recommended.
Called Custom Building Products hot line for tech support and their recommendation for thin-set for our 1" hexagonal travertine marble tile backsplash. They recommended this product and were spot on. They advised that with a porous stone tile, like marble, if you use the wrong thin-set, the chemicals from the mortar will leach into the tile and push the natural salts inside the tile to the surface, causing the yellowing and staining that folks commonly complain of when setting light colored natural stone tiles. They told me the proper water-to-thin set mix to use. This was helpful, because I mixed it in small batches on a 1/2-Gal pail. It needs to be mixed thick. I was able to mix it well with a 2" putty knife. Let it stand for 5 minutes and mixed again. It was perfect for the job. Good initial tack to grab and hold the tiles. No staining or scratching of the tiles, which is a common complaint with other mortars. Grouting was also easy with Custom Building Products non-sanded grout (purchase as powder in a box, many pre-blended color choices) - used a light color to prevent bleeding color into the marble tile. The edges of the tile were initially dark while the grout was drying, but when dry after 24 hours the darkness faded to nothing. The job turned out perfect! This product line is highly recommended,
