I am told that the keralastic is similar to Laticrete 333, which is an excellant product for tile over tile. Just be sure to clean the existing tile with something like Aqua Mix heavy duty tile and grout cleaner before setting the new tile.

Bryan, the first order of business is getting it to stick to the old tile. Need a modified.

Bryan I did call Mapei on this same issue, tile on tile. They told me Kerlastic Kerply. I'm sure the others have thier own added latex and are nearly the same BUT, I was moving a fridg that next day and broke a tile, an enormous fridge. When I pulled that tile up the mortar/latex seemd fresh as the day I put it down. If formula requires air to cure then backbuttering leaves a neverending cure which I did on most of them. Several of them sounded hollow the next day and after pulling the one tile I knew why. Anyway that's my experience with this situation, I'm not sure I will ever use it again. I would do an acid wash and go with a good modified and be done with it. But I would only do tile on tile I there was no way out.

We are currently doing a 4000 sqft job over tile that we had originally did (new owner.... they ripped out a lot of walls and made it all one area). The tiles were quite shiny smooth so we give them a good scuff with our cup grinder and we used Tec Superflex. I took up a tile after a few days to check how well they were bonded..... let's just say very well.

It if could it should. Now you are going to be the one who removes it though I have 700 coming out next week and through the wise advice of my friends here I am subbing this out. This guy has a lawnmower looking blade scraper thing and he says he will get the tile off and the surface down to where it was at the start. I'll get picks in on this with a new topic though. I hope this guy don't let me down.
