Product Overview

SimpleSet is a No-mix, no-mess alternative to traditional thin-set mortars. It spreads quickly and easily. 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 60 Degree F. Do not apply excess adhesive when installing.

California residents: see   Proposition 65 information

  • Ideal for smaller format tile and stone installations

  • Standard dry time for 8 in. x 8 in. tile is 24-72 hours before applying grout

Customer Questions & Answers

Can i use this stuff to install my mosaic kitchen backsplash.

Asked by: Vinnie
as always, read instructions on label. And ask your Home Depot tile person if this product will work on the "mosaic" tile that you choose. Size ,color and shape can make a difference in the mortar you use.

Is it good to use this to tape cement board

Asked by: kb123
This is what I used for smoothing a previous (sloppy) job. For the taped section, I moistened it very slightly and it worked fine. I only wish I had a "before" pix. Dries well, little to no cracking on thick spots.

what would be the thinnest layer that would hold with no problems?
Asked by: RC
I used a square notched trowel with 1/4" notches which up till now has worked for me both on the wall and setting floor tile. It floats large tile nicely and has been holding well.

Can this be used on metal? I am wanting to use this to set mosaic tile to a mailbox, will grout after.
Asked by: sarah
I believe it will as long as the metal surface is scored first (made rough). Also watch out for large pieces of tile as the mortar must stick to at least 50% of the tile surface if used on a curved portion of the mailbox. Good Luck with your project

SimpleSet White 1 Gal. Pre-Mixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 121.

I used this to set 12 inch sheets of stone mosaic tiles that are 2 x 2 inches on a floor section. To my surprise and dismay, the mortar never dried. It's been 6 weeks or more. Now I'll have to remove and redo the whole job. I would never use this again.

I do not recommend if you use this on any tile larger than 12x12, or if you're trying to complete your project in a timely manner. I tiled my 6'x5' bathroom floor over a week ago and the thin-set mortar is still not dry under several tiles (mostly the middle of the tiles). I wish I googled thin-set mortar prior to this job because I never would have used this. Go with the bag that requires mixing.

I tried to lay a fireplace hearth and surround. The horizontal hearth tiles never dried and the wall tiles 'slipped' after I removed the spacers. None of it dried, even after 4 days. Had to remove all tiles and broke one in the process. Does Home Depot actually test any of this stuff? Never again!

I thought it would save time, but ended up wasting half a day because it is difficult to spread and impossible to clean off of tiles and tools. Plus, it doesn't hold tile very well (I tried using it for a fireplace surround and had to start over with a different product because the tiles just kept slowly sagging down). BOTTOM LINE: Do not use SimpleSet Pre-Mixed Mortar. Just take the extra time to mix mortar yourself - you'll be much happier. (And by the way, the SimpleSet Pre-Mixed Grout is even worse - I'm embarrassed I even tried it after seeing how awful the mortar is.)

This is really "mastic" not mortar and should never be used in a wet area (contrary to the back of the can). A rude technician with Custom Bldg. Products tells me I have to scrape off the material I used on my cement backer board even though it lists this material as a valid underlayment right on the container. The reality is you can use it, but never with Redguard and never in a wet area. This stuff should only be used for something like decorative tiles in a dry area. Wish this product was properly labeled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine for me I have been building a new tub surround with 6in subway tile and glass mosaic and so far this product has worked well. I don't have a lot of experience tiling, but I'm about 40% complete and have not had any problems. I am taking my time so it's weeks, not days, so drying time hasn't been an issue. I had to take a few tiles off that I wasn't happy with, and I had a hard time with a pry bar and hammer getting the tiles off, so I trust they will stay put. It is thick and I had to practice to get to where I understood the best way to apply it.

I used this to lay marble tile (12" cappuccino from HD which is gorgeous BTW) onto hardibacker and THEN read the reviews the next morning when I wasn't at home. I stressed ALL DAY about coming home to find the tiles laying in a wet mess and having to re-do it all. Got home and the tiles are as solid as a rock, 36 hours later. No problems whatsoever. Maybe it's because the marble is porous or that it was troweled on well, I don't know why it doesn't work for some folks. The ease of use and clean up factor is fantastic. However - the sf chart is wrong, therefore making the product pretty pricey. It said I should get 50 sf with this gallon using a 1/4" square trowel but I only got about 15 sf. For my 35 sf project, it's worth it to mix up the powdered stuff I think. But for a very small project, this is a good option.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dont use I thouht it would save time by not having to mix it myself. Terrible choise, the 10 min i saved in not having to mix a bag has cost me days in waiting for this to dry. Now Im worried it will never dry. Dont use it. As a first time installing tile, mix a bag, its not diificult and you will have peace of mind.
