Product Overview

SimpleSet is a no-mix, no-mess alternative to traditional thin-set mortars. It spreads quickly and easily. Recommended to bond 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

SimpleSet Gray 1 Gal. Premixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 68.

I used this product to lay 4 inch by 12 inch tiles on my cement floor. After a week, it was not dry! As a matter of fact after a week, the mortar was as wet as the day I applied! I now had to remove all the tiles, clean them and relay with Natural Stone & Marble Premium Mortar. Not only did I waste 12 hours of installation, 6 hours of removal and cleaning, HomeDepot would not refund the cost of the Pre-Mix! Nor would the manufacturer "Custom" refund me. They insisted the only way they would refund is if the product failed. They apparently think that it is acceptable to have to wait a couple of months for drying time!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT USE. read reviews here and online First, HD made this right so i give them credit but they should not be selling this product. This product is a mastic (not thinset) and dries by "air" not by chemical, so anyplace air does not hit it will not dry (which is why it doesnt dry in sealed bucket). After 2 weeks dry time, tile peeled right off. Will harden around edges but in middle of tile will be as wet as it was when put on. Read reviews online and couldnt find any thread that supported this stuff.

Tiles stayed put for 30 years. Used This premixed stuff on the new ceramics. 2 weeks later just pulled up four hollow sounding tiles and one can still smell the Thin-Set. $44 worth of wasted mortar, $60 for new adhesive and tile, and hours wasted. Surprised HD carries this.

Now I have to redo the job again, what a waste. I cannot fathom why on earth Homedepot would do their clients the injustice of carrying this garbage. I guess as long as they make a buck it does not matter what they sell their clients.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Indoor/outdoor Why does the specifications state product can be used indoor/outdoor, but the directions say interior use only, so could you tell me which is correct and if only an indoor product the specifications need to be changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product performed well. It's consistency was such that it went on very smoothly, but did not ... The product performed well. 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 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.
