Thinset and Thin-Set is a special formulation of sand and cement that allows you to install tile and stone to floors and walls. Thinset and Thin-Set is available in two colors: gray or white. Thinset and thin-set is a very important part of the tile and stone installation. If you don't use the proper thinset for your application you will have bond loss. Thinset and thin-set is available in regular and polymer-fortified. The different types of thinset and thin-set are:
