How long does Thinset take to dry under Ditra?
Likewise, people ask, how long does Ditra take to dry?
According to the TCNA, this drying period can fluctuate from 14 days to over 60 days, depending on the conditions. Therefore, extended cure times would be required before grouting if using modified thinset mortars between Ditra and porcelain tile.
Additionally, how long do you wait to tile after installing Ditra? Once DITRA has been installed on the substrate, tile can be installed right away. No need to wait for the mortar to cure.
Furthermore, how long does Schluter Thinset take to dry?
Mix the thin-set for 5 minutes at a speed of 300 RPMs. We found that the thin-set will appear a bit dry after the 5 minutes but don't add more water. Let Schluter SET and ALL-SET sit or slake for 10 minutes.
Can I use modified thinset under Ditra?
In general, we don't recommend the use of modified thin-set mortar to set tile over the membranes because these mortars must air dry to cure properly. Therefore, extended cure times would be required before grouting if using modified thin-set mortars between DITRA and ceramic tile, including porcelain tile.
