How Quickly Does Tile Adhesive Dry?

Tile adhesive dries in a way that is very similar to concrete. The substance starts out as a powder and then, when mixed with water, it becomes a substance with a thick consistency. Under normal circumstances, you will need to let it dry for approximately 24 hours after installation before you can walk on the tile. There is another type of tile adhesive that is designed to dry faster than that, usually in about 4 to 6 hours.
