Products : Setting : SimpleMat® : SimpleMat® Tile Setting Mat
The quickest, easiest, and cleanest way to install tile on countertops, backsplashes and shower walls. SimpleMat® replaces traditional thin-set mortar or mastic adhesive. SimpleMat retains its bonding strength for extended periods of time, which means users have the flexibility to tile onto the mat an hour at a time or over several days. SimpleMat® bonds instantly so you can start grouting immediately.

Custom® Building Products is committed to environmental responsibility in both products produced and in manufacturing practices. Use of this product can contribute towards LEED® v3 certification:
Surfaces must be structurally sound, clean, dry and free from grease, oil, dirt, curing compounds, sealers, adhesives or any other contaminant that would prevent a good bond. All surfaces to be tiled should be flat, even and stable (i.e. no cracks, peeling, or surface movement). SimpleMat™ will follow your wall or counter surface, so patch, flatten or level as needed.
SimpleMat® employs an aggressive adhesive to perform its function. Ensure that SimpleMat® is not placed over the nose or mouth and is kept away from hair.
Concrete or plaster must be fully cured and accept water penetration. Test by sprinkling water on various areas of the substrate. If water penetrates, then a good bond can be achieved. If water beads, surface contaminants are present and loss of adhesion may occur. The contaminants should be removed before installation. Concrete must be free of efflorescence and not subject to hydrostatic pressure.
Layout: For efficiency lay SimpleMat® horizontally on counter. Overlap SimpleMat® edges 1/8" to 1/4" (3-6 mm). Installation: Peel off white backing paper. Apply SimpleMat® to counter. Flatten air bubbles and creases. Cover all surfaces to be tiled. Cut SimpleMat® as needed. Cut corner from end of mat to facilitate folding of corner.
Installation: Roll and apply SimpleMat® vertically on counter, starting closest to backsplash. Overlap SimpleMat® edges 1/8" to 1/4" (3-6 mm). Flatten air bubbles and creases. Cover entire surface to be tiled. Cut SimpleMat® as needed.
SimpleMat® Layout: Place SimpleMat® in position and mark cuts if needed. Cut SimpleMat® with scissors or utility knife. SimpleMat® Installation: Apply SimpleMat® and flatten air bubbles and creases.
SimpleMat® Layout: A single sheet or strip of SimpleMat® must run across a corner with at least 1" (25 mm) of excess material on each wall. Lay SimpleMat® horizontally on shower walls starting from the bottom of your shower wall, working upward. Overlap SimpleMat® edges 1/8" to 1/4" (3 - 6 mm). SimpleMat® Installation: Place SimpleMat® in position and mark cuts if needed. Cut SimpleMat® with scissors or utility knife. Apply SimpleMat® then flatten air bubbles and creases. If additional guidance is needed, call Custom technical services.
SimpleMat® is designed to be used with grout to lock in tile and stone. Grout your installation within 24 hours with the recommended SimpleGrout® Pre-Mixed Grout or Fusion Pro™ Single Component Grout™. You may also use Polyblend® Grout or CEG-Lite™ Commercial 100% Solids Epoxy Grout.
SimpleMat® should be stored in a cool dry place away from sunlight and drafts.
