Questions & Answers

whatis the mixture ratio, water to flex bond thin set, 50 lb. bag for proper mixture for application

cannot find this anywhere
Asked by: Bob
I never mix a full 50 lb bag at once so I carefully weigh out smaller amounts from 10 - 20 lbs. Instructions work out to 3.2 oz per lb . I start at a rate of 3.5 oz /lb to get it less stiff, (or almost 10% more), and its still plenty firm. I'll splash in a little more, but at this point you must be careful to not overdo it ( hopefully you have extra powder if you do)

can i used this directly over the subfloor

Asked by: clay
If you mean to put tile on OSB or plywood etc, NO! You need cement board in between. You can put this under and over the cement board.

I used this product on shower tile and floor tile - do I need to seal it?

Asked by: LEESA
Short answer , yes. What type of grout was used? Standard sanded grout would benefit from sealing, however , it does not make it "waterproof". Custom Pro Fusion does not need sealing but is advisable to pre-seal tiles before grouting to ease in residue removal. Premixed grouts also require 3-7 days cure time before exposure to usage. Also recommend using Tile Lab's non acidic grout cleaner/sealer for regular maintenance.

I was told I could save about half the cost by choosing a lesser product made by this same company, but mortar is not where I try to save money. I made sure this was rated to adhere to my substrate, which I prepared properly. I was careful to mix it correctly for the right consistency. It was very easy to work with, went down evenly and smoothly, and allowed a long enough work time before drying. Use the right trowel and technique. I think what can go wrong is because of the person, not because of this product.

I'm glad I read that there isn't much cost difference between this and nonmodified thinset, which also works fine. But the FlexBond had great working time. Allowed flexibility between how stiff vs. sticky I wanted it. It was really effective for leveling those pesky bows in the wall. Great thinset. My only mistake...I should have used Laticrete grout for immaculate finish, since I was so keen to get the tile set perfectly.

Even though the price is twice as much as the versabond we felt that the crack prevention factor used with the fiber mesh membrane roll was good insurance for avoiding the cracks that appeared in the old tile floor. I also used flexbond over existing tile on a concrete slab in a bathroom floor two years ago with excellent results, I also think that the floor is warmer in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product Although a bit more expensive than traditional 2-set, this is a wonderfully forgiving product anytime there is concern about movement. Better to spend a little more on the front end to ensure long lasting tile.
