Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! After having terrible results with AcrylPro Ceramic Tile Adhesive, I gave this thin-set a shot. I used it to lay about 200 sq. ft. of 12 x 12 porcelain tile on a concrete floor. Even though this thin-set is about half the price of other thin-sets and a quarter of the price of the tile adhesive I previously used, I have had nothing but excellent results. It is very easy to work with and I haven't had any cracked grout lines like I did with the tile adhesive. Every time I lay tile, this is the thin-set that I am going to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low cost, professional results I use a large paddle (like a giant food mixer) on a powerful drill to mix this in a large bucket. I also add Custom Admix for increased water resistance and strength. The result is a thin set which is far stronger than the more expensive ready-mixed tubs. It gives professional results and I've used it remodelling a couple of bathrooms, however it requires being properly mixed etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Great. Used the advanced polymer blah blah before as well. This one as far as I can tell for floor tile is just as good and cheaper.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid Poor quality thinset. Have used other thinsets with schluter with great success. However, this stuff I ripped out because it did not provide desired hold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but there is better Its decent but get the premium plus white stuff. Worth the extra couple bucks for.something easier to use. This stuff does the job though

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size of packaging Works very well but not great for small projects as it is not available in smaller bags

Would this be good enough to use to install backer board on a floor?

Asked by: Fisto
That's what I used it for. It bonds well to wood and cement board.
