Customer Questions & Answers

Can you use this Thinset for 12x24 porcelain tile?

Asked by: Porkchop
Not recommended for anything over 8"x 8" due to long drying times. The manufacturer recommends a full 72 hours for 8"x 8", There are reports of this material not setting up for weeks on larger tiles on set on non-porous surfaces.

May I use it for shower wall or the wall surronding the bathtub?

I am trying to remodel the shower room, and want to use this pre-mix thin-set mortar, but HOME DEPOT workers said this pre-mix mortar can't be used for shower wall at all, because it will peel out after some time with steam. I get confused now. The instruction on the bucket of pre-mix thin-set mortar clearly shows that it is suitable for wet area like shower wall and walls surrounding bathtub. I have to ask you for a clear answer.
Asked by: david
I would not recommend this on any environment that is damp. This is not a portland cement product, and constant moisture will soften it, and the tile will eventually come up.

Can this be used to adhere the backerboard to a plywood subfloor?

Asked by: Scott
Tried putting down Red Guard to a plywood subfloor and not only did it not dry after 3 days, it soaked the Red Guard so much it was unusable. Go with dry mortar or you will be doing the job twice.

Asked by: divaT
This depends on the tiles, their weight, whether you are laying on a floor, or upon a wall.

SimpleSet Gray 3-1/2 Gal. Pre-Mixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont waste your money! We have done multiple tiling jobs both in our own home and family's homes. Typically we go with a self mix product however thought since it was a small job we would make our lives easier and go with premixed. It has been over TWO WEEKS and we are now ripping out all of the tile... It never dried! Not even on a tile that was 3"x3"! So in short you will be redoing the job if you go with this product, don't waste your time or money.

It should be illegal to call it thinset on the packaging because it is NOT thinset. Thinset has Portland cement in it, which means you cannot premix it. DO NOT USE THIS ON FLOORS...this product is a mastic, which will not allow you to set tile height in the mortar bed. Tiles will sink into a bed of mastic, and there is nothing you can do about it. True thinset allows you to set tile height in the mortar bed. I did half a floor with material, and now I have lipping issues on the tile I just set, thanks to believing this is real thinset. I switched to a standard unmodified thinset and had FAR better results for my application. This container will only cover half of what it says it does, so plan accordingly. I am very frustrated that THD even sells this terribly misreprented product in their stores, and their floor department people actually recommended it to me for 12" x 12" tiles....it took a full week for this stuff to dry on a second floor porous concrete slab. Do not plan on finishing the job in a weekend.
