Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shell Unhappy with set-up time, DO NOT USE ON LARGE TILE
DO NOT USE ON LARGE TILE! We used it for putting stone tile on my kitchen counters, the stuff went on easy enough. Set-up or dry time per container instructions is up to 72 hours for 8"x8 tile". My tile is 24 inch x 24 inch. So we doubled the time ( let it sit up to 6 days). We did not want to grout until it had set-up and dried. On the sixth day I took a wire on the side of the tile to probe inside underneath the tile to see if it had dried. Nope, wire was wet and gooey. We had our stove sitting in the middle of the floor, no sink, we were eating on paper plates. So, I did further research on line. Some tile guys that do this for a living said chances are it may take a few months or it may never dry (being the tile was so large). So, we made the decision to tear it all up and do it the right way with thin-set. So much extra work and time involved because it takes forever to dry. Now I could see it being used on a kitchen back splash or wall with smaller tile (as a smaller area with small tiles) allow for air circulation. But, as I repeat myself again, from experience I would never use it on large tile! (I should add even the 6 in by 2 inch bull noses were still wet when we took everything apart.)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Spginstaller Buyer beware! Long setting times on 12 x 12 tiles
Used this in my bathroom and it set up pretty quick and has held up for 6 years now without cracking. Was replacing my kitchen floor this week and wanted a quick and easy product to set 150sq ft. of 12 X 12 tile and be done in less than week completely. The details state that on a 8X8 tile it should set in 24-72 hours prior to grouting but on larger tiles it takes more time. Thinking it would be dry in less than a week , I called Custom products and was informed it can take up to 10-15 days to completely be dry. Now I am running the heater,dehumidifier and fans- non stop....Do not grout prior to being completely dry otherwise you lock in the moisture and the bond will fail. If this would have been stated on the bucket, I would have used Versabond thinset instead. Use with caution

Less shrinkage and although costs more, worth the cost as the job is better.

I have used Omni grip exclusively for tile work once I started using premixed tile cement. I have not had any issues with tiles coming loose on any job once I started using this product.

Works great for tile backsplash. No sag with good working time. Goes a long way. We can typically complete at least three houses with one bucket.

This product is junk, got tile that's been down for 4 days and still not dry. I don't recommend wasting your money on this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeffy Excellent product for tiling walls, No sagging when placing mosiac tile. Will use no other mastic in my buisness.
Omni is a reliable product, the texture provides a secure hold preventing tile from sliding or sagging. Insist on using this product in place of thin-set on all wall projects.
