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

  • Ideal for smaller format tile and stone installations
  • 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
  • Dry time will be extended if using larger tiles and in high humidity or temperatures below 60 Degree F

Answer: 
There's an unfortunately high chance such an installation will fail. On the other hand, this granite and marble tub surround was done with Custom's Natural Stone Mortar on Hardiebacker 500.

You should use real modified thinset mortar, the stuff you mix up out of a bag, in that application. In addition, tiled shower walls backed by water-resistant sheet rock (green board) do not have a good or even passable reputation for holding up over time. Be aware that, unfortunately, plenty of contractors will install a greenboard surround and tell you not to worry. They'll guarantee that their ultramodern version of greenboard, whatever it is, is The One that has finally solved the longevity problem and you will NEVER have a problem with it. They will also not hesitate to use this product instead of the aforementioned thinset to stick tiles on your shower wall. Greenboard and mastic are much easier (and faster) to work with than the more durable materials best suited to this application. Read Less

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Omni Grip should be called Spider Grip The best product for installing heavy tile or stack stone on walls. Recommend buying 3.5 gal, for 75 sq ft and up. July 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product for tiling walls, No sagging when placing mosiac tile. Will use no other mastic in my buisness.
