"Pressing too hard,... Way too much thinset,... Wrong size trowel,..." I hear you loud and clear. However,... The mosaic tiles I am setting on the shower floor are two inch and one inch diameter, and are set on backing material that is either paper or plastic, I don't know. Here's my thoughts: Given the already small surface area of the individual tiles largely covered by the backing material, using the cement that oozes up around them, (which would be a horrendous cleanup process), as grout would go a long way to adhering the tiles in place. It would be using the tile edges as a bonding surface. The DitraSet cures and strengthens via hydration, therefore with use of the shower the tile setting will only get stronger. I'm not looking to create a debate or be argumentative. this makes sense to me and I am interested in other thoughts.
