Interesting. Pics a bit blurry. I'm wondering if ALL-SET could really be for setting all. Would be an impressive product.

Interesting. Anyone want to bet their all modified?

I can't read the labels. What are the 3 different kinds? Wonder who's making it for them?

Even the unmod has the T after it so I think that means they are all ok for large format tile.

The T is for thixotropic, Jim. All the non-sag mortars have that designation now.

I thought thixotropic meant better flow so it covers better under big tiles. I see the T on a lot of lht mortars now.

Hmm. I thought thixotropic meant heavy jungle brush. That's how I been using it anyway. Oh well. Learn something new every day. 😃

It means...kinda...That it'll stay "thick" or less fluid like until / unless it is agitated. In our arena, stiff and non slump / sag unless we're troweling it, then it becomes more "fluid like" therefore easier to trowel out and will stay there when we're done combing it out. When we agitate it pushing our tiles in place...fluid like till we stop then it stops being fluid like and stays.

IOW, while it will move when you push it around, it will stay where you leave it. There are SLC's with that property, too, that you can form into a ramp if needed. Great if you need it.

Schluter has been using modified mortars elsewhere for decades, just not latex modified ones. Sales pressure, marketing, and extreme conditions mean you can convince more people to use it, and, in some circumstances, might be needed, but not as many as most people think!

Good description, Greg Also Jim's slc reference makes sense too.

Can anyone tell if those are paper or plastic bags?

Schluter rep hooked me up with 5 bags each of mod and non mod. Wants feedback, so I'll let you know what I think here as well.

Looking forward to your review Greg.

I would love to know who is manufacturing this stuff for Schluter, but I'm sure that's top secret information.

This video makes me think that they are actually manufacturing their own thinset.
