How many square feet per bag

Asked by Bobby August 3, 2020

The specs on the bag says a max of 95 sqft. But that depends on the size of the notch on the trowel you are using and whether or not you are back buttering your tile.

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.
