When laying tile, you will hear the words mortar and thinset used regularly. The terms are virtually interchangeable, and are a necessary element in laying a tile floor.

Thinset, or thinset mortar, is a combination of finely blended sand, a water retention compound (such as an alkyl derivative of cellulose), and cement that acts as an adhesive tile mortar. This means that it acts as a glue between the tile and cement backing or underlayment.

When choosing a tile mortar you will need to determine whether you want to use a basic tile thinset or polymer modified thinset, or an unmodified thinset. A polymer modified thinset has additives (typically latex) that increase the bonding and decrease the shrinkage of the mortar, making it ideal for most tiling situations. An unmodified thinset doesn’t have these additives and is used in certain situations. The best way to know if you need to use ummodified thinset or thinset mortar is to determine the tile you are installing and ask a professional or store associate.

Lastly, a different type of thinset adhesive is called mapei mortar. Mapei mortar is a type of polymer modified thinset used to install tile both on the floor and on a vertical surface. It doesn’t require an additive and is an ideal thinset for stone and porcelain tile.

Whatever tile project you are completing in your home, Floor and Décor has the tools you need to make it happen. We have a wide range of tile mortar, ensuring that wherever you are putting stone or tile, we have a thinset adhesive to get your project done.
