does thin-set harden ? ? ?


OR does it stay slightly flexible & thereby cushion the tile against point loading ? ? ? wondering because i laid some tile yesterday &, while it appears to have ' cured ', its still dentable w/fingernail.

thanks, guys !

I've found it does set but it doesn't get hard like concrete, meaning even old thin-set is easily scraped away with little effort.

Are the tile moveable? What did you test when you poked it? A big pile of left overs or squeeze out or something else?

That's why it is useless as a leveling compound.
