Yes-as long as the surface is clean and dry. I've used it on sealed plywood, drywall and over a previously tiled wall. It's super sticky and works well.

Can I attach the tiles a day after putting up Simple Mat?

Answers

I tried this product. It was a waste of money and a 2 hours I can never get back. After cutting the mat, prepping the wall and cutting the tiles. They kept falling off. The material is not strong enough

Will this work with a stacked stone mosaic with mesh backing that does not require grouting?

Asked by Calvin July 9, 2020

Answers

The manufacturer states that you must grout in 24 hours and there is a size and weight limitation to each piece for this product. Each piece of tile should not weigh more than 7lbs. and not bigger than 8”x8” If your selection meets those requirements I would strongly suggest applying caulk on the lower, upper and side ends to permanently secure.

I have used the simple mat product in the past and had it work well on a small section of wall, however when I recently used it to install tile around a bathtub/shower, it failed completely, peeling off the wall and dropping most of the tiles, damaging them. This despite pressing the simple mat into place firmly and repeatedly. I will never consider using this product again. Using standard thinset mortar is considerably cheaper, and not difficult (just watch a how-to video or two). Please do not waste your money on this poor quality, unreliable product.

Any time I tile I will be using this product! So easy to use and NO MESS! Held the tiles well and looks amazing. I decide to skim coat the walls and then primer them prior to install and it seemed to stick really well. So happy with how it turned out!

This stuff is awesome! Follow the instructions, make sure the wall/walls are clean and free of debris. This stuff saves a ton of time without having to use any thinset, you can basically start tiling in a day. Make sure that everything (once set on wall) is pressed firmly, once that’s done grout it. Note: I only use this product for backsplashes, not showers/tub areas.

We used this product Along with the night sky mosaic glass times from Home Depot. Within 24 hours of the tile install, the mat started peeling from the wall and 90% of the tile fell. This was promoted by the Home Depot associate for use with the tile we chose. Don’t waste your money!

Some tiles just wouldn't stick

Used this product yesterday for a kitchen backsplash. Using simple 6x2 subway tiles. Wall was patched and sanded smooth (no texture left). The simple mat is very sticky on your hands as you cut it. Sticks to the wall fairly well. Things started out great, but we hit some problems around outlets and with small pieces of tile. The small pieces would not hold. Nothing we tried helped. We finally had to use liquid nails to make them stick. Some other tiles also would not stick. I took a small test piece and while the mat stuck to my hand it would not stick to the tile at all. The tile had been cut but was dry at the time of testing. Liquid nails to the rescue again. At one point I was so frustrated that I almost ripped all the tiles off the wall and went to get some Ceramic Tile Adhesive. Yes, this saves time because you don't have to wait for the tile adhesive to dry before applying grout, but I am worried that the tiles will still fall off the wall at some point. I won't be using this product again..

The product "SimpleMat 30 sq. ft. Roll of Tile Setting Mat" is awesome for doing small area tile jobs or backsplashes. No mortar, less mess! Would give 5 stars, if the roll had preparations every 6 inches, to make easier to cut/tear, work with.

I have installed 1000’s of square feet of tile. I had to wrap up a backsplash quickly so I gave this product a try. The first few rows went great. As soon as I ran a couple more complex cuts around outlets through the wet saw, the tile would not stick. I dried them thoroughly and still pulled away. I left the white paper on until just before setting the tile too. I prefer mastic and just stopping back the following day to grout. Plus if there are any wall imperfections, mastic gives you the chance to adjust.
