Can you use servolight with Kerdi

Has anyone had any luck with using servolight thinset with kerdi, going over new drywall, tile is going to be 12-24. I know that schluter recommends unmodified but heard info that servolight cures/dries in a different manner than modified thinsets and would be alright to use. Just about to start a shower and they already have a bag of the servolight there

Not familiar with that brand, but if it is a rapid set mortar, if you call Schluter, they will allow it. If not, you're on your own. Depending on the tile, it could take months for a normal modified thinset to dry and cure properly. Unless you're a pro, most DIY'ers will have problems with a rapid set - some of them start to cure in 20-minutes, so your pot life is very short.

I have used servolight many times over Kerdi without a problem. You will void any warranty from Schuller but the tile will stick no problem. If using it under the kerdi you need to add more water to your mix. Drywall should be taped and primed.
Better with mud and tiles than computers and smartphones.
