Q:I'm applying mosaic sheets of 1" x 1" Natural Slate tile (8mm thick) as a kitchen backsplash. Grout lines are 1/8". Existing wall is flat paint over knockdown texture. What's the best wall prep to do? Smooth the texture with joint compound, then prime?

          This stuff is great!
          Probably spent too much on this bucket compared to buying a bag ans mixing my own, however the ease of it i think made it worth it. Spreads easily with a nice consistency, just loose enough it would fall off the trowel in a clump but not be dripping. Took ~5 lbs to cover our 6x8 accent wall, however some was wasted as we had to stop during the project, it dried to the wall and was scraped/chipped back off.

            I have read other reviews on this particular type of motor for tiles specifically and it was interesting to see that other people did not think of it as highly as I did. This is all I’ve ever been using. And I have always thought if only the Egyptian’s have these kind of building materials, the pyramids made with been built differently After 3 to 4 days, this material dries as hard as stone. It would be extremely difficult, if not impossible to remove the tile from the wall. Basically, this is what you want. I will continue to use the premixed insect until I find something better. Which I am not counting on.

            Didn’t dry
            What an unbelievable mess. Let tiles set 48 hours. Noticed after a few days, all tiles moving and sounded hollow. Tried Fix-A-Floor product. That was also garbage. So pulled up tiles after a month and surprised to find thinset was not fully cured and what was scraped off like dry drywall mud and nothing like cement or mortar. Just get the real stuff in a bag to avoid this fiasco.

              This was my 14th bucket of pre-mixed mortar which I have purchased for my project and I was extremely disappointed because it had hard lumps about 3/4 inch all through the mix. This did not allow it to spread evenly and put a tile on it level.

              Will not dry
              Applied this product to Master shower and went on vacation. It has yet to dry and some of the tiles even moved and became hollow. Well, redoing this again 🙄

                Great for a DIYer/avoiding pulling out the mixer
                I laid 6x18 tile using this less than 24 hours ago and I cannot even move the tile! I am not sure what the bad reviews are about. I made sure to dampen my plywood and back butter my tiles. Only reason for 4 stars is because it is pricey in my opinion and does not cover much area.

                  It doesn't dry
                  This stuff is crap. I let it sit for 3 days and it still hasn't set. I used a bag for half the floor and that area it solid. They need to take it off the market.

                    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.
