Could I use this for floor over REDGARD waterproof membrane??

Asked by Dschz October 23, 2020
1
Answer

You should always use redguard.if your foundation moves a little,redguard will prevent your tile from cracking.i was told this by floor tile experts about 20 years ago and I used it 2 years ago when I had my floor tiled.

It is okay to set glass mosiac backsplash tile and grout on the same day

Answers

Even though a backsplash trowel is generally a thin spread I would still give it a good 12 hrs. to set up before doing grout. As with grout you mush it in spread it then wet sponge off the excess. That added moisture could cause issues if Thinset is not cured.

can this be used to lay 6x36 plank tile or should I use the Versabond LFT?

I was using this for DIY needs, so I was making smaller batches that I could work with. The bag instructions are for mixing a whole batch, so I found some videos on general thinset mixing tips. This mixed easily, I got it to a peanut butter consistency and I haven't had any issues with bond strength. Just make sure you're using the recommended trowel for each application. Depth of notches matter - if it's too shallow you can have poor coverage and it will not bond adequately. This is not an issue with the thinset, but the application of it. I found I had about an hour to apply it after I mixed it. My technique definitely got better over time and I was able to mix slightly larger batches as I went. I used this for a couple different applications: Ditra floor membrane over plywood USG membrane over cement board 5x10 tile and mosaic tile over USG membrane Marble thresholds over USG membrane for shower curb It worked great in all the applications and everything has held up going on two months after the final tile was installed. Very pleased with this thinset overall.

After everything dried my shower looked like it was done by a 5 yr old!! Seversl tiles throughout the shower were sunk in. Now everything needs to be removed and retiled at $70 a box for tile. Tiles taken off had nothing on the back ever though each one was butter!!!. DO NOT USE THIS.

worked as intended
It dried a little fast (inexperined with tile) but overall had a nice result. I used over ditra and had zero problems.
