    What is the substrate you are tiling on? Ideally you should use a flexible adhesive. Mapei do have additives to add to some of their adhesive's to make them flexible.
    Stay away from any of the ready mixed adhesives as they are not really suitable for large format tiles.

    Are you a fast competent tiler as this product only has a 20 min pot life

    Also dependant on surface your tiling on, large format tiles may take some jiggling to get perfectly flat and zero lippage

    That adhesive is for ceramic tiles and not suitable for porcelain

    If you have a CTD near you Ardex X7 is fantastic. It's gone up a couple of quid this month but still under £16/bag. They always have good adhesive at reasonable prices.

    SF seem obsessed with rapid set adhesive for some reason.
