Kiesel Servolight on Redgard

Hello all, I'm very happy to have found this forum. I'm redoing my shower and tub surround, and I have already installed Durock cement board and have applied Redgard as recommended by the manufacturer. I have chosen my tiles which are 18x24 porcelain. My question is, what is the best thinset I can use when Redgard is applied? I've heard of Kiesel Servolight and its performance and the fact that it doesn't need air to dry. In your experience, would you recommend this or should I stick to the recommended MegaLite option?

never heard of that thinset, but you are not limited to thinset choices by redgard.

Welcome, Matthew.

Per the RedGard manufacturer's instructions you are required to use a modified thinset mortar meeting the requirements of ANSI A118.4.

I'm not familiar with that Kiesel product, either, but it says it meets that requirement.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Kiesel is a German thinset manufacturer. They make good normal and technically advanced products, like Ardex and Co. I would not mix manufactures when using liquid applied waterproofing products based on both personal and professional experience.
