      Made setting the tile very simple
      Simplemat made laying / placing the tile on a backsplash very simple and fast. Make sure to grout within 24 hours to avoid any tiles coming off. Only downside was it does not cut well with scissors.

        Do not use this. Heartache awaits
        I am an experienced home renovator and someone told me this was a viable option compared to tile adhesive. The company’s YouTube videos are impressive so I thought I’d give it a whirl. I have central air but wanted to grout with the windows open because of fumes and it was hot as Hades outside so I had to wait for 2 days. Within 2 days, the tiles began to fall on the countertop and I will need to start all over with proper tile adhesive. The worst part of this is when you try and remove the adhesive paper from the wall, it pulls pieces of drywall paper off with it. If only the tiles held that well. This is an utter nightmare. I will NEVER try this stuff again. Beware!!
          Garbage, avoid at all cost
          I used this on green board and hardi board and tile fell off both surfaces. Complete waste of time, i was hesitant to use this product so I waited to grout and glad that I did wait. within 48 hrs tile started falling off the wall. The product sticks to the wall fairly good but doesn't hold the tile.

            Easy and works wonderfully
            This was a great, easy to use product. It was simple to cut and apply and once the sticky top was removed, there was plenty of time to work with the tile. Make sure to put a lot of pressure on the tiles once placed to make sure they stick firmly and apply a small bit of extra simple mat if a tile doesn't have adequate coverage. I removed one star because the instructions did not clarify proper procedure if you are using a wet tile saw: IF USING A WET TILE SAW, LET CERAMIC TILES DRY FOR AT LEAST SEVERAL HOURS BEFORE APPLYING! If tiles are applied that are even slightly damp, they will fall off several hours later. We found that we could re-stick the tiles once dry and they worked well!

              Worked Great!!
              I really had my doubts about this stuff. I kept adding tile and coming back with another batch expecting it to all be crashed onto the floor. That never happened. I was able to reposition a few crooked tiles and they stuck back on fine. One benefit not mentioned, is that you can see your markings through the material. That makes it easy to make leveling lines for each tile row. I put this over a painted and mildly textured bathroom wall, after cleaning with TSP. Will it hold up for 50 years like the traditional adhesive? No way to know, but it seems pretty solid once the grout is in place. Be sure to follow the instructions, particularly the smoothing out part. Also, if you do a whole backsplash like I did , leave the paper on until you are ready to stick on tile. That will keep it from collecting any dust. No complaints, a good product if you want to finish faster that the old glue method. This was also my first tile/grout job ever, and I think it went well.

                Not worth it
                I hate that I have to even give this product a 1 star it's that bad This! This product is simply horrible. We have lost so much money on the tiles that have fallen off the walls and broke, they have damaged my marble countertops. The day after we set the tiles they started falling off the walls.. it's been a couple weeks and the tiles are still falling off literally one by one. Some are Sagging till they fall completely of the wall. These tiles are not heavy to assume maybe that might be the reason, even small 1"x1" pieces are falling off. I now have to take off every tile I put up and reset them. what should've been a $600 job has not turned into a $1000 job...and I still need to replace the ones that have broke and reset them all with tile setting material that will actually work. So disappointing that you advertise this that it works so great. This is only one of many pics of all tiles falling off.

                  Fell Down
                  Used it on kitchen backsplash with mosaic tile and almost all of it fell down before I could get the grout in the next day. It stuck just fine to the drywall but not the tile
