SimpleSet is a no-mix, no-mess alternative to traditional thin-set mortars. Recommended to bond porcelain, marble, granite, stone, 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.

California residents: seeProposition 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
  • Do not apply excess adhesive when installing

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellant Thin Set We have used this Pre-mixed Thin Set on two projects. Saved us time and money with excellent results I highly recommend October 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product Easy to work with product. I tend to get some air bubbles at times, but I wonder if that is because I put it on too thick. This product claims to be the low-dust, but no matter what, you will always end up with a mess when sanding. June 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by SIMPLESET GRAY 3-1/2 GAL. PRE-MIXED THIN-SET MORTAR It's all about convenience with this 3.5 gallon bucket. Thin-set is ready to go from the water or mixing needed. August 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Expensive The product was easy to use but cost a lot more then the mix it your self types of Thin-Set Mortar. Great for smaller jobs (200 SQ or less) but if you are doing a larger job I wouldn't pay the extra. August 12, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Read, prep, add more drying time than stated - not as terrible as other reviews Someone has to give this product an average review. Under the best conditions and small tile this product might dry in 24 hours. Under 12x12 ceramic tile expect 72 hours or longer. This will adhere to old cutback adhesive, floor paint, and other surfaces not ideal for tiling projects. Expect to use at least 2x the proposed coverage. Trowel as directed on floor and back-butter tile for best adhesion then stay off it for 3 full days. I can't remove the cured tiles without damaging the tile (what you expect) and it certainly won't clean up at this point - again, what you expect. It's a different product than the bag mix - read up and test. 12x12 ceramic tile in basement, 65 degrees, over old cutback, floor paint and less than perfect cement. Would I recommend...sure. Just get a gallon size and test. Knowing what you are getting into is 1/2 the battle...and every "pro" should know that no two jobs are the same. January 27, 2013
