Oh, imagination, you are fun.
In reality, Bondera is a new product that makes tiling easier, cleaner and faster. It’s a sticker-like adhesive that you peel and add to the back of your tiles, eliminating the need for mortar or mastic in the installation process. Just peel, set, install and add grout – all in one day (no waiting for things to dry).
Bondera has been used for kitchen backsplashes, counters and even shower, tub and bathroom tiles (yes, it works in water and humid environment – it repels water and is mold resistant). It can also be used on any clean, flat, stable surface including drywall, plywood, old tile (in certain circumstances), laminate and Formica. It is NOT designed for floor or ceiling use.
Currently, the Bondera TileMatSet is only available in Lowes stores across New England, they do have a contact form for those outside the area should you be interested. Different rolls and sets run between $14 and $40 each, but the total costs depend on the size of your tiling job.
