Product Overview

Complete Contact LFT Rapid Setting Mortar is a polymer modified, full contact medium bed mortar. Specifically designed for floors, it has a rapid curing formula that allows grouting in as little as 2 hours, light foot traffic in 4 – 6 hours and commercial traffic in 24 hours. Excellent for large format tile and stone, Complete Contact-LFT Rapid Setting Mortar is suited for thin and medium bed applications up to 3/4 in. (19 mm). It offers full mortar transfer to the back of the tile. Unlike traditional thin-sets, Complete Contact-LFT Rapid Setting Mortar is more fluid yet holds its ridges and supports the deeper notch trowel sizes required for larger tile.
  • Formulated with Controlled Cure Technology, it cures rapidly developing high early and final strength for quick installations - can be grouted in 2-4 hours and can withstand heavy commercial traffic 24 hours after grouting
  • Can be used in thin-bed as well as medium-bed applications with all types and sizes of tile up 3/4 in.
  • Offers full mortar transfer to the back of the tile eliminating the need for back-buttering or beating-in techniques
  • Exceeds ANSI A118.4F, A118.11 and A118.15F without the need for additives
  • California residents

Thanks for your helpful answers. Unfortunately, I found this only covered about 40 sq. ft. using the recommended 1/2" trowel.

Roughly, how many sq. ft. can I expect to get out of each bag laying down an “average” thickness for LFT?

Asked by Jason March 10, 2019

In my experience, about 40 ft. with 1/2" trowel. Around half what they claim.

Can you use this over 1/4 Hardie board for floors with large format ceramic tiles

That's what I used it for. 1/2" trowel according to the tile manufacturer. But a word of warning, I only got about 40 sq. ft. per bag - half what they claim.

Don't Buy This!
This mortar is terrible. It sets up too fast. I can't get the area covered fast enough. The membrane sheet won't stick to the mortar. I used Flex Bond mortar (Custom Building Products) previously and it works great. I'm asking for a refund.

Waste of money. Twice the price of regular LFT mortar but as far as I can tell, it works exactly the same. Same working time, and seems to cure the same, too. I've done 400 sq. ft. in the last couple days, and ran out of this when i was 1/4 of the way done because I believed the coverage in the description. This doesn't cover anywhere NEAR what the description says. Seems to get about 40 sq. ft. per bag -about half what the description says. Had to pick up more of the regular stuff from the local store, and like I said, the cheap stuff seems to perform exactly the same. Maybe you could drive a truck on this rapid set a bit sooner, but I just want to move the dining room table, and 4-6 hours seems fine even with the cheap stuff.

Did not enjoy working with this product as it begins to set too quickly, and despite adding water constantly to try and keep it useful, we ended up losing a lot of product. We followed the instructions to the letter, and are DIY'ers with a great deal of tiling experience. In the future, we will continue using our go-to mortar: ProLite... also available at Home Depot.

I am not a professional tile installer, so please read this review with that in mind. My application was setting 12"x24" porcelain tile outdoors (open breezeway). I found this tile mortar to deliver exactly what the manufacturer promised: it was easy to mix, it had a bucket life of 50-65 minutes, it flowed well when setting the tiles (eliminating the need to back butter) and it set rapidly. Very clear instructions are provided on the back of each bag. I wish it wasn't quite as expensive, but I will definitely use it again.
