OmniGrip’s unique formula sets a radical new standard, offering many benefits not found in traditional tile adhesives. Formulated with more solids and less water, OmniGrip shrinks up to 33% less than traditional adhesives ensuring maximum coverage and superior bonds. This high-polymer formula remains flexible allowing a wide variety of applications. Recommended to bond porcelain, marble, granite, stone, ceramic, mosaic and quarry tile up to 8 in. x 8 in. for interior use only. Can be used with tile up to 18 in. x 18 in., but dry time significantly increases. Dry time will be extended if using larger tiles, bonding to non-porous surface, in high humidity or if temperature is below 60°F. Do not apply excess adhesive when installing.

California residents: see  Proposition 65 information

  • Powerful bond strength and great durability in areas with intermittent water exposure
  • Light weight helps prevent sagging and makes carrying easy
  • Standard dry time for 8 in. x 8 in. tile is 24-72 hours before applying grout
  • Open and adjustment times of more than 1 hour

Answer: 
A stone veneer would work well as there are different color options and it will adhere to the brick. if you do tile you will need to have a backer board installed on the brick

Answer: 
I think just lifting the old formica off could be easier, you would have to use a belt sander to get the finish off of the formica, if it doesnt some up with a a scraper or similar tool, use a heat gun on it to loosen the adhesive.

I know this is 9 months old, but installing stuff over existing stuff seems like more work to me. On your wall, you will need to add an electrical box extender to all outlets and longer attaching 6-32 screws. I used omni grip to glue tiles to tile to see if I liked my stove hearth 2 tile layers thick, and it appeared to hold over night just as the normal tile did to the concrete floor. But I didn't let it fully cure and changed the design and it was never walked on. You are adding more weight to your floor, and a marble floor being covered up? Seems like you are going backwards, and if you have to do things later, it may create more headaches. Take the time and do it correctly, and it will produce fewer headaches. Read Less

Answer: 
To tile on top of exisiting tile it is best to use a portland cement modified thin set. First, the exisiting tile needs to be completely roughened so you have a more abrasive surface to bond to. I would recommend using Flexbond to set the new tile. Thank You

Omnigrip works well for stone tile, but I would recommend http://www.homedepot.com/p/Custom-Building-Products-Glass-Tile-4-2-lb-Thin-Set-Mortar-GTMW4/202243462 for glass tile. Make sure the wall is clean, dry, and maybe sand it a bit to roughen up the surface, and I would recommend using no larger than 6x6 tile.

Answer: 
I would say yes, but I would primer the wall area first so you get a better bond. When I have used Omni grip for wall work it was either on rock board or new sheetrocked walls and primed. Niether has given me a problem or a call back. So I think it should work fine

The OmniGrip is not recommended for setting glass tile or for setting over a painted surface. The paint would first need to be sanded/removed and then I would recommend using either white Flexbond or MegaFlex dependig on the size of the glass tile. Thank You

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy application, strong grip This product is easy to apply and gives just enough time to make any needed adjustments but firms up quickly enough to hold tiles once they are where you want them. Alsoeasy to clean up. March 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great! We used this to hang 12" x 12" rock tiles on our kitchen backsplash. It was a little stinky as expected but worked just as it said it would. Easy to spread, no tiles fell off...I'd say that's a win! March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pre mix adhesive After mixing up my own stone and tile for two rooms. Switching and using this pre mix saves so much time and is worth the extra money.Very little mess using this. February 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product for mosaic tiles, clean work I have used cement and other products as adhesive for tiles before. This time it was a small area and the sales rep recommended me to use OmniGrip. It was definitively much more easier and cleaner. I used it only once so I don't know if the rest of the adhesive will be in good condition when I need it again (I'll try to update this review in the future) but for the first time-use, it was a perfect mix and made the job extremely easy December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect material I used it with 12×12 stone and glass mosaic tile backsplash. It is perfect for that application May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Adhesive Love this product - very well mixed right out of the container, great adhesive properties, easy clean up! May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I LOVE this adhesive! Okay, it's not all that easy to apply: it's messy. But that's the nature of tile adhesive. Once applied and stuck down, or onto the wall, it STAYS there. It's not magic (minor slippage may occur if you don't watch it) but it works well, allows minor adjustments for a while and holds great. Once dry (and I had to remove some tiles put up the previous week due to a change in plans) it's TOUGH! Putting up tiles is a pain, but this makes it about as easy as I've found. If you are doing a wall (vertical application of large tiles) this is the ticket! Worked great for floor tiles as well! March 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Still wet after 1 week! Cracked tile. Do NOT buy for large tile!!! I wish I had read the reviews! This product is terrible for large tile. I laid my large (1'x2') tile over a week ago when I saw that some of tile had cracked, so I pulled it up and the "omnigrip" underneath was almost as wet as when I installed it. No wonder it cracked! I'm probably going to have to rip up all the tile and put down something better. I used larger tile 1'x2' and that was a mistake. However, for small, mosaic 1"x1" tile this product seemed to work well. The package says "Ideal for small format tile", what it needs to say is: "Not suitable for tile larger than 2"x2" or whatever.
