I have 12" x 24" ceramic tile; the instructions say largest tile 18" x 18"; will this work for me?

Asked by: MarkyMark
SimpleSet Premixed Thin-Set Mortar is not recommended for setting a 12" x 24" Ceramic tile. We would recommend a Large Format Tile mortar like VersaBond-LFT Large Format Tile Mortar. For further assistance please contact our installation division at 800.272.8786 option 2

Is this an appropriate product to use on slate mosaic tile for a fireplace surround?

I am removing existing porcelain tile from our fireplace surround. Plan on scraping the substrate and cleaning it up to the best of my ability and then installing slate mosaic tile on a net backing. Just wondering if this product is appropriate for a high-heat installation?
Asked by: fireplace
Yes, but be sure to follow the instructions, it is call thin set for a reason.

SimpleSet Gray 1 Gal. Premixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 63.

It's consistency was such that it went on very smoothly, but did not fall off the wall, trowel or back-buttered tiles. Adherence of tiles was excellent, and only the heaviest, free standing trim tiles needed to be taped to hold their positions. Using the specified trowel, it went on smooth, no gaps or lumps to fix, and did not ooze up through the tile joints. No need for messy mixing and cleanup and for small quantities like this, really fast. In our project, we used three tubs. We purchased the first tub to make sure the product performed well, and planned to buy the remainder after that test. Since we liked the results, we went back to store after checking inventory level online, only to find that the online inventory was inaccurate and there was no more gray. We switched to a gray mastic tile adhesive, bought only 1 tub of that to test first, and found that it performed far less capably. We then went to another store to get this product again to complete the project since we liked its performance much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ready to use Mortar The gray colored mortar was ready to use. We had never used this product before but were able to figure it out pretty quick. We used a smaller 4" blade to apply it to a painted wall and also to wonderboard. After we applied it, we used a 1/4" notched trowel to even out the mortar and then pressed into place the slate backsplash.We only applied enough mortar to cover the piece we were working with. It helps to have 2 people to make it go faster. It helps to use the product at one time. We had to do it over a couple days and the second day the mortar was a little dryer and not as easy to apply but we were able to finish the job and it turned out great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from thin set I used this product for it's convenience on a stack stone application for a backsplash. I was doing about 20sq. ft. and the bucket ran out before I could finish. I did go a little heavier than normal because I wanted to try to fill a few of the gaps in the stone. The first bucket spread really well. I bought a second bucket that was much drier and harder than the first. It was much harder to apply and I probably used more because of this. It's a convenient product and holds well if you need to lid it for later use. I'd use it again but would be cautious of the consistency.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for dry floor/wall area NOT for wet. Got this on recommendation of Store employee. Its not designed to adhere to waterproofing membrane. Unfortunately its open, so now im out $50.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would use again in a pinch A little moist and tile didn't stick at first but it held and we didn't have to mix anything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Gray is a little cheaper than white. It works pretty well, I got about 40SF out of it instead of 50SF. It takes out the guess work in the mixing and time to mix. Good consistency and easy to work with. Dried in about 12 hours with a fan blowing on it. Will use it again.
