Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

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 Degree 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

OmniGrip 1 Gal. Maximum Strength Tile Adhesive is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 102.

Be careful with how thick you using this product. It shrinks/shifts when it dries at anything over an eighth of an inch thick, unlike cement mortars. Use wedges and tile supports extensively. Easy to cleanup and stores for long periods of time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still wet the day I out it on after 2 weeks The adhesive seemed a little thin, After 2 weeks had someone try and install a shower enclosure and end up cracking the tile and after pulling the tile the adhesive was just as wet as when I put it down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed! I wish I never bought it! Now I'm stuck with waiting for the stuff to dry. As with some people I found the negatives about this product after I bought it and used it. I bought it to put tiles on my kitchen counters. My tiles are 24 inches x 24 inches (Big tile). It went on easily enough, seemed easy to work with. However, it does not set up like real thin set. Thin set would have been dry by the next day and very hard. This stuff after 5 days is rubbery (spongy). And that is on the ends (after it has been exposed to air). I have a feeling it is still wet on the inside and who knows how long it is going to take to set ? I had put some duct tape up to hold the bull nose pieces. Last night I removed the tape underneath, it was wet and squishy (it was not dry after 5 days)! Now I'm stuck with how long to wait until I can grout? I have no sink to use, my stove is removed. Terrible experience with this stuff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked well so far We were worried because of how light and fluffy the constancy of this product is. Once we got the tile on the burnt adobe, it seemed to adhere very well. the tile is 7x20 and we didn't have any issues, but according to what I read, this size tile will need a little extra dry time.

I am a 60 year old guy and have done a reasonable amount of DIY but am no expert. I have read lots of bad reviews about this adhesive not drying and people saying not to use. My own personal experience with this product is nothing but positive. I laid 18x18 tiles over a concrete slab in part of my basement (about 18ft by 18ft). I used a thin coat using a v notch trowel. Did not butter tiles but laid them straight onto mastic and settled them in. The stuff was really easy to use and clean up was a breeze. 48 hours later they were dry enough to walk on and grout. I write this review 5 years later and all is still perfect. Why did all of these "experts" have such a problem I dont know. I used the omni adhesive again when I did my laundry room about a 3 years ago. Applied adhesive straight to new dry wall, applied 12x12 tiles and grouted 24 hours later. They are still perfect. Again everything worked great, I still dont know why all the bad reviews. Was I just lucky? I am about to retile my daughters bathroom with 6x24 tiles and will again use omni, I dont expect any different results to those I have achieved previously with this product, we will see.
