Can you use this to tape cement board joints

Asked by: Nando
Well, it is what one would use on "cement board", since cement board is just a backing for what ever one wants to apply such as tile etc...

SimpleSet Gray 1 Gal. Premixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 70.

I used this product to lay 4 inch by 12 inch tiles on my cement floor. After a week, it was not dry! As a matter of fact after a week, the mortar was as wet as the day I applied! I now had to remove all the tiles, clean them and relay with Natural Stone & Marble Premium Mortar. Not only did I waste 12 hours of installation, 6 hours of removal and cleaning, HomeDepot would not refund the cost of the Pre-Mix! Nor would the manufacturer "Custom" refund me. They insisted the only way they would refund is if the product failed. They apparently think that it is acceptable to have to wait a couple of months for drying time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use this product is very easy to use no mixing no fuss it is strong it has a good amout of time before it sets i would strongly recomend this product

Rated 3 out of 5 by from thin set I used this product for it's convenience on a stack stone application for a backsplash. I was doing about 20sq. ft. and the bucket ran out before I could finish. I did go a little heavier than normal because I wanted to try to fill a few of the gaps in the stone. The first bucket spread really well. I bought a second bucket that was much drier and harder than the first. It was much harder to apply and I probably used more because of this. It's a convenient product and holds well if you need to lid it for later use. I'd use it again but would be cautious of the consistency.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ready to use Mortar The gray colored mortar was ready to use. We had never used this product before but were able to figure it out pretty quick. We used a smaller 4" blade to apply it to a painted wall and also to wonderboard. After we applied it, we used a 1/4" notched trowel to even out the mortar and then pressed into place the slate backsplash.We only applied enough mortar to cover the piece we were working with. It helps to have 2 people to make it go faster. It helps to use the product at one time. We had to do it over a couple days and the second day the mortar was a little dryer and not as easy to apply but we were able to finish the job and it turned out great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT USE. read reviews here and online First, HD made this right so i give them credit but they should not be selling this product. This product is a mastic (not thinset) and dries by "air" not by chemical, so anyplace air does not hit it will not dry (which is why it doesnt dry in sealed bucket). After 2 weeks dry time, tile peeled right off. Will harden around edges but in middle of tile will be as wet as it was when put on. Read reviews online and couldnt find any thread that supported this stuff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Premixed mortar in a bucket It is what it is... Premixed mortar in a bucket. Good for small jobs or in my case prep and touch up work during bathroom renovation. Honestly I used it because I was too lazy to go outside with the drill and mix thinset. It's expensive compared to bagged dry thinset, but it did save time.

Tiles stayed put for 30 years. Used This premixed stuff on the new ceramics. 2 weeks later just pulled up four hollow sounding tiles and one can still smell the Thin-Set. $44 worth of wasted mortar, $60 for new adhesive and tile, and hours wasted. Surprised HD carries this.
