Questions & Answers

Can this be used on .32 thickness gauged slate floor tiles (12x12) ?

Asked by: Laura
As long as the surface is solid. Make sure to butter it enough so it touches all of the surface.

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.

SimpleSet Gray 3-1/2 Gal. Pre-Mixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 92.

For those of you that are laying your own floor tile, avoid this product at all costs. My wife and I used it to put down some 6" x 12" tiles in our bathrooms and have had to rip them all out. Because of the chemistry of this product it doesn't cure like traditional thin-sets that you buy as a powder and mix with water. Instead it dries. This is a big problem because for it to dry, the volatiles need a path to the atmosphere. Essentially once you put it down and cover it with tile, it never dries. After 3 weeks, we took up the tile and this product was just as wet as the day we put it down, but the tiles that we put down with the traditional thin-set were cure cured up perfectly.

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.

I youtubed it and it seemed simple enough. I first bout mortar mix and mixed it myself. After I ran out of my first mix bag I decided to get the premixed mortar. The SimpleSet was too thick (I had to add water) and when applied on 3 tiles, it was still loose after a day. Thank goodness homedepot took it back (thats why i love homedepot). I then went and bought the mix mortar instead. Save yourself some headache and do not buy this.

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.

I used this to lay 18x18 tiles in my foyer, hallway, half bath, and kitchen. It has been 14 days and they are still wet. I have not been able to grout yet. I can feel movement when I walk on them. I'm going to have to pull and reset them with a real mortar. This product is horrible and should be discontinued. No one should use this, ever, for any application. It will fail.
