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 60F. Do not apply excess adhesive when installing.

California residents: see  Proposition 65 information

  • Ideal for smaller format tile installations
  • Spreads quickly and easily with minimal mess
  • Standard dry time for 8 in. x 8 in. tile is 24-72 hours before applying grout
  • Premixed and ready to use
  • For interior wall and floor installations
  • Color: Gray

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product, easy to use. I love having the mortar premixed. Easy to use! I also used Home Depot's paint, leveler, and other products to complete this project. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple & Easy This thin-set is so easy to use and helps make installation a breeze. April 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase I used it 2 years ago on walls covering old tiles and sheetrock. Didn't do any preparatiions besides regular cleaning. We are talking about 2 bathrooms. I do not see any loose tile. It takes longer time to dry out (days), but it is convinient if you need to correct mistakes. I am not a pro but tiles look really good. The downside is a weight and not very easy to spread it on the wall if product is not very fresh. I never use it on the floor. March 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use DIY Went on easy. Allow more dry time than labeled for large tiles. Buy extra. I needed three to cover what I thought one would per the label (used only 1/4 of third container). Easy cleanup if done right away, dried really fast on surfaces. March 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works for me! I used this product to repair some damage from water on wall board in the bathroom. I had to apply several coats to build it up and it worked super. It dried quickly with a little help from a fan and built up well. The project was a complete success thanks to this easy to use mortar. March 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A NEED PRODUCT TO GET MY JOB DONE it wasn't an easy job installing the tiles but the "thin-set" was a good product and got the job done. March 26, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked as expected Was easy to use. Will use on other projects that require small amounts of thin set. March 24, 2015
