Hello, i used pre-mixed tile adhesive for a wall installation over concrete that stated it was good for tile up to 12in by 12in.

but the adhesive is taking a very long time to set, which is concerning to me. I still have about half the job to do. Should i switch to the thinset mortar that needs to be mixed instead?
Asked by: Kevin
i use once premixed and regret that decision will never use again, make sure that your grout is intact otherwise your tile will start to fall out off the wall if the area is constantly wet

Asked by: GettinErDun

Porcelain Tile White 50 lb. Fortified Thinset Mortar is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 58.

Very good adhesion properties. Drying time is just right for work. Not too fast or too slow. It usually starts firming up in about 10 - 15 minutes depending on initial water content in mix. I recommend working with smaller batches for novice tilers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I had no trouble mixing or applying it. I used it for porcelain tile on bathroom walls, they grab on pretty fast, I'm a 69 yr old woman and had no trouble at all. Once I set the tile n spacers it stayed on wall with a strong hold.. made the job easier!
