A:  This a modified mortar which needs air to cure hard. I would suggest Versa Bond which is a cement based product and does not need air to cure.

              Cement Hardie-Backer and porcelain
              We used this product on cement board screwed to wood sub-floor. When laying porcelain tile with the pre-mixed thin set mortar a few of the tiles didn’t stick. However, the mortar did adhere to the Hardie cement board just fine as noted when reapplying the loose tiles. Most importantly, you have the have a well ventilated room and give the mortar the suggested 72 hours and you should be fine.

                As many of the other reviews say, it won't dry
                After waiting 48 hours, instructions say 24-72 hours, I noticed that some of the tiles were very wobbly. Product as wet as the day of installation. Had to take them out. I got lucky that only about 5% of the floor was affected, and I'm thinking about re-doing these tiles with a real product. I used tiles that were 8.5 inches in diameter on concrete flooring. I noticed most people with problems use a plastic membrane.

                  Don't buy product
                  Product does not dry after sitting for more than 7 days. I wasted more than $800 in material and now all had to be removed and thrown in the trash. Avoid the product,waste of time and money spend, it does not work.

                    Doesn't dry
                    We used this under 12 x 24 inch floor tiles. A month later, we had to pull up the tiles because they were moving. The this thin set was as wet as the day it was installed. Terrible. Waste of time and money. We will avoid all premixed from now on.

                      The drying time is extremely too long. It takes a couple of weeks to dry installing floor porcelain tiles.

                      Used it reset kitchen tiles, They were completely loose within a week now I am having to re do them. Save your money and time, mix your own.

                      I'm upset that I didn't use this before!
                      I'll never use thinset that I have to mix again. Perhaps, if I were a contractor doing a huge installation and mixing 20 pound bags at a time for a crew, I would feel differently. This product went on way more easily than ready mix thinset and I didn't have to stop to mix more before it set-up. There was much less to clean when I was done. The second day of tiling, I didn't wet the tiles, as I do with thinset because it isn't needed. They setup much better and it saved me time.

                        Works well, but very pricey
                        I bought three buckets of the pre-mix for the convenience. I don't know if people with negative reviews are laying the tile on improper substrates, but 12 hrs later and it is walkable. In a day or so I will grout but it worked as expected on hardie board.
