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 this be used to set 12" x 12" porcelain tile on 5/8" gypsum board to be used directly behind wood burning stove as a heat shield separated from the wall by 1" spacers? The temperature has gotten as high as 180 degrees back there
Asked by: Chica
The paper layer on gypsum will not stand the moister needed to apply the tile and most drywall is not a suitable backer for tile sorry

I’m going to install porcelain tile over a concrete slab. Tile in another room have reflective cracked tiles.

Can I use this product over red guard to decrease the possibility of reflective cracking in the new tiles or would it be better to use one or the other products but not both.
Asked by: Hobby38y
I used a cracked glass tile in my shower which turned out awesome. I used this same stuff and it works great.

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.

It needs to have a longer “pot life” though. If you could get another 30 or more mins out of a mixed bag it would be perfect. Gets to stiff 30 mins too soon.

Anything that can help arrest unwanted cracking of the thin-set is a good thing. I'd recommend it happily.
