Customer Questions & Answers

How can I mix small amounts? ie: What is the ratio of cups of water to cups of morter ?

I need to mix up enough to set just 2.5 square feet of ti[e. How can I mix this small amount ?
Asked by: Midnightsailor
I 've been mixing small batches using : 4 fl oz of water per 1 lb glass tile mortar ( I have a small kitchen scale) The instructions on the box say 27 oz of water for the 7 pound box. i round that up to 28 because mfg instructions always seems to result on the dry side for me , ( also for Flexbond). A few extra drops can make a big difference!

Do I need to use this thin-set if the glass tiles are on a mesh sheet?

Do I need to use this thin-set if the glass tiles are on a mesh sheet?
Asked by: flomo54
Yes this thin-set will work for tiles on a mesh sheet. The objective of using this thin-set is to give a uniform coloring behind the glass tiles. I have used this for two inch tiles on 12 x 12 sheets and the results are great.

Kitchen backsplash

I was told I should use this product for glass 12x12 sheet tile that I am using. its on a painted drywall...some say sand first and some say don't have to..or some say use mastic instead of this product...the tile isn't a clear tile..there is some light grey, taupe and off white. and for 25sq what ratio should I use
Asked by: Antonio
You might need more than the 7#'s but I used it on sheets of tile and little bits and pieces of tile too. Also long ceramic bars as borders (Had to prop the bars 'til mortar dried though). I didn't sand anything. Not the painted brick wall nor the painted drywall, Worked great.

Can I use this over Tec Skill Set liquid membrane? We are doing a shower with 3x6 glass subway tiles. Many thanks!

Asked by: Cas
Yes this will work. Make sure you have a waterproofing mesh at corners and joints. Also Tec Skill Set suggests to apply at least two coats of the membrane (25 mm thick). Most waterproofing membranes will cure in 24 hrs, so check the directions for proper cure times.

Glass Tile 7 lb. White Premium Thin-Set Mortar is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Double your purchase! The coverage noted on the package is very optimistic. Buy double the amount that you calculate. Otherwise you might run out in the middle of your project... It was good to work with when using the exact amount of water specified. Don't add anything extra for good measure!

We were using a mosaic tile, Jeffery Court 'Fall Opal', that included clear glass on a mesh back. This mortar seemed to make the mesh disappear. Bonus, it made the colored glass tiles pop in color. Highly recommend!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to mix, apply, and clean up I used this mortar to set glass mosaic tile on a vertical surface. 7lbs was too large a batch given the amount of piecing in I had to do, so I used a scale to make 1lb batches. This worked well for me, as I was able to get very consistent viscosity and tack each time. I used a mixing blade in a cordless drill to mix the mortar, but a putty knife or similar tool would have worked in a pinch. I had no issues getting the mortar to remain in place as I troweled it out, and it held the tile tightly while I positioned it. Clean up was simple. Its a little pricey, but worth the money to get it right the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Money Well Sent 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!!
