I just returned home from a workshop at the Nevada warehouse and we used the all-set during our mock up work. Seemed pretty nice imo.

They announced it as comparably priced, but my local material suppliers numbers says otherwise lol.

On smaller projects a few more bucks a bag isn't going to matter one way or another, but if I'm bidding against others on a large floor, I will simply stick with (pun intended) my ol' reliable bostik ditra set at 14 a bag...

Looks like the product page is up, with TDS and SDS PDFs:

Tried the Allset (modified) today...sticky, lots of portland in it for sure. Heats up the bucket and has that distinct chlorine smell to it. It's good stuff I reckon. I'm not married to it but I do have several more bags to work with yet.
Hope to try the non mod soon perhaps next week.

I sat through a Schluter demonstration of the new thin set at Coverings, and just from that I think it's a great product. They used it to bond their membranes to a sheet of Kerd-board, and the stuff stuck like crazy. It had no problem transferring from the substrate to the membrane, and the coverage was outstanding. They had it mixed on the loose side. I say it's great stuff even though I've not used it myself.

Of course, VersaBond is still great stuff, too.

Sat through the demo at Coverings. I was always wondering when Schluter would once again allow modified mortars.
While sitting at lunch I was sitting next to a large distributor from the Midwest with his group. The chatter was not positive about Schluters new announcement. Their complaints were about having to stock another setting material. Also they got into a discussion about ANSI ratings of everyone's thinset. They also were looking at the so called lifetime warranty they would honor that had lots of loopholes.
The price points for us installers were on the high side compared to other setting material companies.
I think Schluter will have a tough sell and everyone now has a product that competes with most of Schluters products.

Uhhh...Time out, I heard were on reformulation #1....Scooped up what I had left of the non mod and will get me some new soon to try....Talk of "slowing down" the all set as it "may" kick off to quick. I'm here to tell you...You can reheat a cup of coffee in the stuff with the amount of heat it generates in the bucket. It is crazy sticky though. I'm mixing at the very top end of the water scale, don't think I'd want it any less to suit me.

Any update on All-Set use? Are installers liking it?

What was that reformulation about?

Local Bedrosians has it for $23 -- not sure if that is the DIY price or the contractor price. I usually wear a T-Shirt from my wife's tile guy's company (retired) when I shop for such things -- sometimes works to get me the good price, sometimes not. Another local place was charging $36 DIY retail.

Full disclaimer, I haven't touched the stuff...but I've heard mixed reviews. I haven't heard anyone say they love it, but I know a lot of guys that say they'll never touch the stuff again. The main complaints were that it would stay on the trowel and they had a hard time keeping it on the wall when doing showers. Many think it lacks the stickiness needed for many applications. Others are put off by the 15 minutes needed to mix it to specs I think its mix 3 min, slake 10, remix 2 and its highly sensitive to mixing speed. Like I said I haven't used it and really dont plan to since prices are too high for me. I'm not bashing since I do like schluter products, but there's been enough unhappiness amongst guys I trust for me to pass on the new thinsets they have.

Its sitting on the pallet at my distributor. The guys who have used it don't like it at all.
