3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R Launched by Laticrete

3701 Lite Mortar by LaticreteLaticrete is a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry. The company recently launched 3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R. Laticrete crafted the formula 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. “These products showcase 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), they are half the weight of conventional mortars. However, they 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 jobsite. The product is ideal for tight locations such as bathrooms, where you would apply mortar beds. 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. It allows for a quicker installation and 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. This is including SpectraLock 1, Laticrete Select-Bond and SpartaCoat Flex XPL Low Gloss.
