We are considering using the Simple Mat underneath tiles for a backsplash. The tiles will not get wet. BUT, we have a toaster oven we usually keep on the counter and is usually sitting a few inches from the painted drywall. Is this going to be an issue? We will grout & seal tile.
Asked by: Atown
We have used Simple Mat successfully on several occasions including the kitchen backsplash, but never in an area where a great deal of heat would be close to the tiles. Personally, I would not recommend this situation since the tiles could eventually get hot if close to the oven over a period of minutes (15-20) and the product is actually "glue" paper. After repeats, the tiles would probably loosen.

Why must my tiles be grouted in 24 hours using simplemat?

Started tiling first section but wont be able to finish cutting tiles for a couple of days. Have at least 10 that are un-cut in the first section.
Asked by: Subway tiler
be careful if you use sealer with simple mat. i used sealer on my stone mosaic tiles and it began to fall off before i then had a chance to grout.

SimpleMat 10 sq. ft. Tile Setting Mat is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 412.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easier than I thought I was a little nervous about using this but when I was at HD another customer (tile guy) said he had a friend that used it with success. I decided to give it a try. Super easy to use if you follow the directions. I had no issues putting it up or cutting it, It is very hard to move once you stick it. I grouted right away and as of a few days later my tile is firmly on the wall. This is the second time I've tiled, made the mistake of buying the premixed SimpleGrout on glass tile only to figure out that it's sanded grout. I have a few scrathes that I fixed with car wax-live and learn! Very happy with the product so far & I would use it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not use this product! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! We decided to try this product at our own house before we started using it for our Home Improvement business. Thank goodness we did! The product went on super easy and we had our kitchen backsplash done within a few hours. The next day we used our oven (backsplash is on side and behind oven) and everything was still great. By the next morning, ALL of the backsplash literally fell off the walls. After reading the reviews below, I have now realized that this product does not hold up with any kind of heat. The oven was literally on for 30 minutes. Trust me, do not use this product or be ready to wake up with it on the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy for a First Timer to tile a Backsplash This made it so easy to tile my backsplash over paint. The night before, I sanded with a coarse sanding block, wiped it down with a damp cloth, then cut and laid the Simple Mat. it was easy to cut with good scissors. In the morning I laid the tile (3x6 subway tile) then grouted and caulked. Every tile stuck without a problem, but when I made mistakes I could pry them off to move them. The whole project was done in a day without waiting for the thin-set to cure. (Note on the photo: the white on the countertop dried clear. While installing I realized there wasn't any sealant so I was getting grout in the cracks between the countertop and back piece).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product (if done right). I used this to install a backsplash in my kitchen. We put up pretty heavy travertine tile and it stuck perfectly...almost too good. It is a very strong adhesive...try to be precise when putting the tile up because it is a pain to take it off and adjust...the "stick" is strong and it's hard to pull tile off. I am not sure about the other reviews saying that the tile did not stick...could have been VERY old and not sticky any longer, but I think most likely the wrong side of the product was stuck to the wall. Like I said, I could hardly pull the tile off to adjust it...couldn't imagine the tile falling off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use! An employee talked us into using this product and my husband was skeptical. However, knowing that we were working with limited available time and energy, we decided to bite the bullet and absorb the additional cost of this product against the lesser cost of mastic. Wow - were we glad we did. This product was so easy to use and there was zero clean up needed. Just throw away the paper backing. That's it! The tile stuck beautifully and our tile job took 2 hours as opposed to 4 or more. You also have the ability to grout the same day, instead of having to wait 24 hours. We will use this product again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from "Caveat Emptor" I'm totally disappointed with this simple mat. I had 4 pieces of tile fall off the wall last night. I had to remove the mat, install new pieces, clean & dry the tile again, then re-install Cleaning the tile and waiting for it to dry after making any cuts, is very time consuming. When I grouted the tile it kept moving, and I couldn't keep the tile level or equally spaced. Then I checked the tile, 3 hours after grouting, and a tile shifted completely out of place. Save yourself the aggravation, cost and use thinset. I'd NEVER recommend this simple mat to anyone !! I'm hoping the grout will keep any more tile from falling off my wall......

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simple mat not so simple... In theory, the simple mat sounded great. I bought it with intentions of mixing glass and travertine on a tub surround and tub bench. It stuck very well to the surface but the tiles would not stick on the side walls even though it was very level. It worked great on the flat side of the bench but not so great on the sides. A few of the travertine tiles fell off and the spacers would not stick at all on the sides. I would not recommend this for any tile. Use the thinset, the results and time spent will give you a better quality tile and finished product. The product was very difficult to remove and the wall and tub had to be sanded and caulked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplemat adhesive mat works great and is easy to use. I loved the product. It is very easy to install and effective to use. One word of caution. I used this on a wall behind a beverage, refrigerator. I put my tile up but did not have time to grout it that day. I pushed the refrigerator back against the wall. The heat from the refrigerator caused a few tiles to come loose and fall over night. Easy to fix, put tile back up and grouted next day and all done. Looks great. I mention this only because of the heat of the refrigerator. I had put up other wall tile and left it tiled without grout for several days, with no issues. Great product. I highly recommend it. Very easy and effective.
