SPECTRALOCK 1 - Pre-Mixed Grout with Epoxy Performance

 Press Releases

  • March 30, 2020, Bethany, Conn. -- LATICRETE, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has introduced LATICRETE® SELECT-BONDTM, an industry-first, versatile tile and stone adhesive system that includes optional kits for specialized enhancements. Useful for both thin bed and large heavy tile applications, the polymer modified adhesive system offers versatility as distributors and contractors no longer need multiple adhesives for their various project types. Designed to be used alone or with one of three optional, pre-measured adhesive system kits, LATICRETE SELECT-BOND can reduce distributor inventory by 65% and helps ensure installers always have the right product for the job.

    “LATICRETE SELECT-BOND is a unique innovation that delivers real value to the distributor and installer,” said Jon Scott, LATICRETE Senior Product Manager. “A first-of-its-kind product, LATICRETE SELECT-BOND is a game changer for all tile and stone adhesive needs. The base adhesive works well for the majority of applications and the enhancements allow customization never seen in the market before.”

    When used alone (without an additional adhesive system kit), LATICRETE SELECT-BOND provides a one-step installation for ceramic tile, porcelain tile, marble and stone on floors and walls, and is approved for use over exterior glue plywood for interior installations. The product meets both ANSI A118.4 and A118.11 and is available in 25-pound bags.

    To increase the versatility and enhance the performance of  LATICRETE SELECT-BOND, users can add a Non-Sag, Rapid Curing or High Performance (to meet ANSI A118.15 requirements) adhesive system kit. These adhesive system kits are premeasured and come in a water soluble packet so additional measuring and calculations are not necessary to provide consistent performance.

  • New LATICRETE lightweight mortars are easier to transport and contain no harmful respirable crystalline silica

    March 23, 2020, Bethany, Conn. -- LATICRETE, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has launched 3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R. The formula was crafted from carefully selected polymers, Portland cement and lightweight aggregates, and does not require the use of a latex admixture, only water. Additionally, there is no respirable crystalline silica, which is known to be harmful when inhaled. Both 3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R have excellent performance in vertical and overhead applications such as concrete repairs or wall renders.

    “We wanted to not only improve workability, but also safety, which is why there is no respirable crystalline silica,” said Elvis Torres, LATICRETE Product Manager. “3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R showcases the dedication LATICRETE has in creating healthier job sites and products that are easier to install for their customers. Plus, at half the weight of traditional bags of mortar while covering the same area, contractors work less and get more done. Who wouldn’t want that!”

    At only 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms), 3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R are half the weight of conventional mortars yet offer the same amount of coverage as a traditional 60 pound (27.2 kilogram) bag. The lightweight feature makes it easier and safer to transport and handle on the job site. The product is ideal for tight locations such as bathrooms, where mortar beds would be applied. Additionally, the versatile formula makes it freeze/thaw-stable, and perfect for interior or exterior applications.

    3701 Lite Mortar R is the rapid cure formula and allows for a quicker installation, drying faster at approximately two hours. Along with 3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R, LATICRETE has launched three additional products for their first 2020 launch window, including SPECTRALOCK® 1, LATICRETE® SELECT-BONDTM and SPARTACOTETM FLEX XPL Low Gloss.
