Can I tile over old glue?

My basement floor previously had Armstrong self stick vinyl tile. I cannot get the old glue off. It's not water based and it extremely sticky. A razor scraper does nothing. Can I mix thinset mortar with this admix and expect the porcelain tile to stick to the floor with the old glue still on it?
Asked by: DIYGuy

Can this be used with sanded grout for floor tiles?

Can this be used with sanded grout for floor tiles?
Asked by: lara
Yes, however clean up real well because it will be very difficult after the thinset dries. This product changes properties of cement / mortar / thinset to make it more adhesive, flexible, and water proof. I use this product for the thinset and grout both sanded and non-sanded.

I have used this product as the additive to concrete when pouring slabs and they do not crack. This purchase was added to 11 yards and it really changes the concrete in such a positive way. I found out about adding latex to concrete a fews years ago and been adding it ever since.

The contractor used it to tile the floors and the "mud" did not stick very well as the tiles that had to be taken up just popped up and didn't break. I want a refund because I had to go out and purchase the correct Thin Set which is holding up great now.
