Hi gang,

Will be applying 300 x 600 wall tiles in the bathroom to Hardibacker or plaster board. Hardibacker in wet area and plasterboard in dry areas.

Would this mapei powder adhesive from Wickes be ok?

Thanks in advance [THUMBS UP SIGN]

It's good adhesive but it's rapid drying and grey. But if you're not used to tiling or have light colour tiles then you'd be better off choosing a standard set white adhesive. I use thisImage
