Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lriv39 It's Sticky!
We used this, just this past weekend and boy oh boy is it sticky! I recommend wearing disposable latex gloves through the entire process. I don't know how, but I always somehow managed to get it on my hands, even when being so careful. just opening the lid it transferred to my fingers.
Use a trowel, small notches and a roller to flatten them out. or better yet, use a putty knife and scoop some out onto the floor, working in a 5'x5' area use the roller to spread it out in a thin even layer.
Let it dry until it dries to a dark amber color. DO NOT place your tiles down if it's still cream colored. Once you can touch your finger to it, about 30 min, without it transferring to your finger it's ready to accept your tiles.
If any gushes out the sides, you likely used too much. With the method I described above we didn't have any oozing.
I recommend going ahead and spreading adhesive in your next area to be placed just before laying your ready area. By the time you finish setting your tiles your next area should be ready to accept your tile.
This stuff stays sticky for a VERY long time! You've got at least 8 hours of set time to stick your tiles. So, there's no rush with this stuff. Just be sure you're aware, you'll have to wait for it to turn dark amber before you set your tiles and don't use too much. If you do the glue won't dry! A thin layer, like you'd roll out for painting a wall, is about all you'll need. We used thin smooth coat roller, not the sponge kind, and it worked great!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kel Not made for rookies
I am a rookie with this type of adheasive, I should have picked something else, but it gets everywhere and there is no tool that works stellar with this product and no glove you can wear that wont make things worse. It may be a good product, but for me it was a nightmare, I do contribute this more to my lack of experience with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dcredwingfan Very Easy to Use
The principle of this product is simple. Apply it to a clean level surface, allow it to dry (become tacky to the touch), and begin installing your tile; it truly is that simple. If you rush the installation of tile by not allowing the adhesive to properly dry (become tacky to the touch without the transfer of wet adhesive to your fingers) your tile will not adhere properly, and the installation will be messy. I had to use this adhesive on self-adhesive (peel and stick) tile because the peel and stick simply would not adhere entirely and firmly to the floor. Yes, I cleaned, leveled, and prepped the floor with a bond enhancer/primer as recommended by the tile manufacturer (IT DID NOT WORK). Often, self-adhesive tiles simply do not have sufficient bonding capabilities on concrete floors. Being a contractor, I knew the vinyl tile adhesive would work well and enhance the bond of the peel and stick. For this project I installed 680 18”x18” Stainmaster self-adhesive vinyl tiles, spaced 1/8” to receive vinyl tile grout, using the tile adhesive. The entire bonding surface of every tile is fully and completely adhered to the floor (including those areas which were not 100% level). This product works exceptionally well when used properly, and it is very easy to use; no mixing required. Simply open the container, apply thinly and evenly to floor with a "v" notch vinyl floor tile trowel, allow it to dry before beginning tile installation.

Use a proper trowel and follow the directions and this stuff works great. Put on too much, and not follow the directions, and this stuff will take forever and a day to dry.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hankhemoth Awful product
When installing the tile in my 2 bedrooms and bathroom, it took between 12-24 hours for it to finally be "tacky" to begin installing the tile. After that, the tile went down easy and holds very well. After about 2 months with no problems, the glue started to ooze out the sides, ruining a couple rugs and staining the edges of our white tile brown. 4 months later, I'm still cleaning up glue from the same edges EVERY DAY and it seems like its never going to stop. Would never use again. Terrible product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paula Extreme tackiness!!!
This tile glue is awesome! The only drawback is my clutsy behind stepped and sat in it a couple times and was glued to the floor! I used paint thinner(mineral spirits) to remove it from other tiles, my shoes and I threw away the shorts I wore! It comes off of your skin easily with a wet washcloth and pumice cleaner. We used it in a wet, humid, dirty, hairy pet grooming salon. I will update about durability after a few months of use. The directions say that the tile can be moved easily but that was NOT our experience. Once the tile was down, there was NO moving it or replacing it.
