"I bought this to finish laying the floor tiles in my bathroom.
On opening the tub you'll immediately discover a smaller tub within which contains a poly bag of accelerant powder. Lift this smaller tub out of the main one and you'll see the pre-mixed adhesive. You need to pour the contents of the bag of accelerant powder into the pre-mixed adhesive, stirring all the while (I used an old wooden spoon for this job).
When the mixing of accelerant with adhesive is finished you have roughly two hours in which to use the resultant mix. This is plenty of time as you'll probably only lay approximately twelve - fifteen 30cm x 30cm floor tiles with this amount of adhesive at a depth of 3 - 5mm (despite the 2m sq. claim).
It does go off pretty quickly - I would agree with the 4 hour claim for being able to walk on it but this is dependant on the temperature of the room in which it is being used. At least two days are required for it to appear to be thoroughly set.
Altogether an excellent product that appears to work as claimed by the manufacturer."

Review 2 for Evo-Stik Tile a Floor Fast Set Tile Adhesive 5Ltr
"We used this for fixing quarry tiles in an outside porch exposed to the elements. It certainly did the job. Mixing easy and application was a singe.It kept its moisture long enough to enable final adjustments to be made without loss of adhesion. There was more value to be had by saving the unused powder and putting this in a shrinkbagger so we can use for another job!
Note for Screwfix execs!!!
HeyScrewfix!!!!what about exploring the shrink-bagging market? I used a kitchen machine to bag up the remaining powder but there must be something more nsubstantial for you to source that DIYers and tradesmen can use???? Grout...cement...adhesives..Some jobs take longer than a few days to complete so there's a need for safe and simple storage. And 'help the planet' is another reason."

Review 4 for Evo-Stik Tile a Floor Fast Set Tile Adhesive 5Ltr
"This is a 2 part tile adhesive. Your pour 1 part slowly into the other half and mix it. I found using an attachment on my drill to mix it while a 2nd person slowly poured the 1st part in. Once it was mixed and put on the floor it was very good at grabbing the tiles. You don't have very long before it starts to set so i recommend have all your tiles cut ready to put down before mixing the adhesive. I used this product on a wooden floor and this had no problem on it once the wood was sealed. I would recommend this tile adhesive to anyone who has a wooden floor."
