Wonderboard Base Dry time.


I am redoing my bathroom floor and have decide to use wonderboard as the backer board.
When I set that into the subfloor with thinset and then screw it down every 6" or so. Meshing the joints and what not.

Do I have to let the Thinset & Wonderboard base dry before I start placing tiles?

Has any one done this other than the Home Depot Guy that suggested this to me.
I don't want do a bunch of work and then have to redo it all , although placing the tiles right after the wonderboard goes down would be super convenient for me.

Wonderboard Base Dry time.


Put the WB down with thinset, fasteners, fiberglass tape etc. then take a short break to mix more thinset at the new viscosity and start tiling. Unless you wanna turn a one & a half day job into a 3 day job.
