Can i set tis mortar on wood and then put the tile?

Asked by: Chris
If you do use it,an additive is required. Use Latex Modified Its so much cheaper and recommended for B/C grade plywood.

Customer Reviews

CustomBlend Gray 50 lb. Standard Thinset Mortar is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 134.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. Know your purpose. Thin set/mortar comes in different qualities. Know what your purpose is. Use the right product. I saw the review rating this poorly and had to counter. Complaining that this product, probably using no admixture on top of that, would not stick his new tile on top of other tile? Really? That is NOT what this stuff is for. If you use this for what it is for, it will work as advertised. If you add some latex bonding liquid, you can do a little more. Know your product and your use and this will work just fine! DO NOT think spending $6 for this to do the job of something that needs a $16 product will magically work. It won't. If you are putting tile on a rough concrete floor, on meshed floorboard/plywood, it will work fine. If you are doing tile on tile, you better use something stronger and more bonding! You might try mastic in that case. But you should rough up your base tile first if it has a smooth surface. Good luck!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible for tile adhesion We installed tile in all three bathrooms using this thinset. We own a tile saw and have done various projects including a kitchen and bathroom for a family member. Saw this on the shelf and the Home Depot employee said it would work for our bathrooms. It was easy to mix with the drill bit and spread easily as well. Within the first year of installation, we started hearing a weird noise like scraping sand whenever we walked on the tile. Large chunks of grout began falling out. We used unsanded grout due to thin grout lines so we thought that was the issue, even though many people told us we could use unsanded on the floor. I spent hours chipping away the old grout in the half bath then grouted with sanded. Not long after the problem is back. I realized it must have been this cheap, sandy thinset. Went to the website and read reviews with the exact same issue. What a waste of time, money, and resources. I'm going to have to completely redo all three bathrooms.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't work well with Schluter products This is a review of the product without the use of admix, as I was working on a pair of projects using Schluter products that call for unmodified thinset. This product on its own has almost zero bond strength even when fully cured. The mix must be a very high sand content with little Portland cement, as it flakes away very easily when dry, and does a very poor job holding the membrane or the tile. After having now compared this product to Custom's higher quality unmodified (called Custom Uncoupling Mat Mortar) and Laticrete 272 (their high quality unmodified thinset) I'm curious why Home Depot doesn't stock one of these far superior products in store. Both the Uncoupling product from Custom and the Laticrete have excellent bond strength and make a world of difference when using Schluter products (either Ditra or Kerdi) so I strongly recommend finding one of these two products and avoiding Custom's budget Customblend. Home Depot will ship the Uncoupling Mat Mortar product to their stores for free, so as long as you don't need the thinset immediately I'd go that route in the future.
