Once cured, Bosti-Set™ has a tenacious bond that remains tough, yet flexible for durability and sound abatement. This unique formulation is also easy to clean off tile surfaces before and after cure without the need for water or solvents. Bosti-Set™ contains 0% solvents, zero VOC (as calculated per SCAQMD Rule 1168) and is low-odor.

  • Installation time reduced by as much as 50%, with half of the crew typically needed for typical mortar installations.
