Asked by CaTrekker September 27, 2020

Answers

Highly recommended to use LFT. It has additives that increase bond strength and initial bond (stickiness). It also has a higher compressive strength for floor installations to support the longer tile span better. The faster/higher bond strength is what you want for walls. And, by definition, a Large Format Tile has an edge longer than 15".

Good quality product. Used to lay 12x24 porcelain tile. Used Grey color and white. Something weird happens. Gray and white should be the same product and when i mixed both (separately. lol) Gray color appears to be more smooth and creamy (what i like) when white one has kind of sandy filling (Probably due to different ingredients) plus it looks like dries faster . I don't like it. . Anyway. I like gray. Will buy for future protects.
