Can I use this particular mortar for stone veneer on hardibacker board? Does it also make for a good scratch coat?
Asked by: Higgins
I used VersaBond Gray Mortar for a stone veneer project on an outside wall. I had no problems adhering a scratch surface first to a screened-over-stucco wall and then using the mortar to adhere the stone veneer.

is this suitable for 12x12 porcelain tile laid directly on a concrete slab
Asked by: mvno
The answer is YES, this product may be used to apply 12" x 12" tile directly to concrete. Just make sure the concrete is clean from dust, grease, and any other contaminants. For that size of tile use a 1/4" x 1/4" notched trowel and don't forget to use chemical resistance gloves.

You can. If you’re looking for something that self levels this isn’t it. Otherwise it works great.

VersaBond Gray 50 lb. Fortified Thin-Set Mortar is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1025.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use So, a couple of do-it-yourself tile books I have talk about thinset in almost mystical terms as how hard it is to mix, get the consistency right, and have good adhesion. I poked around the net, and found someone who measured out a 50# bag of versabond, cup by cup. The magic ratio is 11 cups thinset to 4 cups water. I used this ratio, and my very first batch was absolutely perfect. I was laying 16" tiles, so I could put down about 6 tiles (I was using a 1/4 x 3/8 notched trowel) before I had to mix more. The key was that the troweled peaks did not sag, nor were they gritty (too much water, too little, respectively). I checked adhesion and it was fantastic. If you follow the mix ratio above, you get slightly less than 1 gallon of thinset. I was able to easily mix this in a plastic pail with an 18V Dewalt. I have also used the pre-mix thinset, but wanted to try the Versabond because it is so much less expensive. I'm glad I did. The picture below is Montagna Cortina, carried by Home Depot, along with Hardiebacker. Over the past few years, I've completed two baths, a backsplash, and some decorative tiling with this combination.

Stays workable for several hours after mixing, yet hardens up nicely overnight. I'm using it for large-format floor and wall tiles, using a 1/4-inch notched trowel. Nice grip -- tiles stick to shower ceiling without support, but they will need to be supported for a few minutes on walls or they will slide down (tile spacers work great for this).

Just make sure to follow the directions the first time so you know what kind of consistency you are looking for. Very easy to apply. You can do multiple smaller bathrooms with one bag or a couple medium sized bathrooms.
