How long after waterproofing can I tile? Often waterproofing membranes will have a“short dry time” but this doesn't include the need to apply several coats in the waterproofing process. Often coats will need to applied on separate site visits. In practice the tile ready time is still often 48 hours from the start of waterproofing.

Will Thinset stick to AquaDefense? Aquadefense is a great waterproofing product. Thinset mortar will adhere to it that's what it's specifically manufactured for. It requires the use of a polymer modified / latex modified thinset mortar. Check out the library shower construction thread to make sure that you_built your shower correctly so far.
