Thinset Mortar, ANSI 118.???🤔 What you need to know to choose the right type.
Thinset Mortar, ANSI 118.???🤔 What you need to know to choose the right type.. Thinset mortar is the glue that holds the tile to your substrate, picking the right one for your tile and substrate is of critical importance. There are several material specifications for thinset mortar from the American National Standards Institute or ANSI for short. These specifications are ANSI:
A118.1 Dry Set Unmodified Mortar
A118.4 Dry Set Modified Mortar
A118.11 Dry Set Modified EGP Mortar (Exterior Grade Plywood)
A118.15 Dry Set Improved Modified Mortar
Using a thinset for a tile or substrate that it is not designed to be used for can lead to failures, so it is critical to use a mortar that is suitable for the type of tile and substrate in your tile installation. In this video, with NTCA Trainer Mark Heinlein we give an introduction to what those standards are and what they mean. For a full understanding of all ANSI Standards and TCNA methods, Industry Technical Manuals can be purchased at the NTCA website here https://www.tile-assn.com/store/ListProducts.aspx?catid=398904
Also in the video are a few minutes of video of the free NTCA Workshop that was held at:
