Laticrete Launches SpectraLock 1

SpectraLock packagingLaticrete, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has introduced SpectraLock 1, the industry’s first pre-mixed, stain proof grout with true epoxy performance. SpectraLock 1 offers superior strength at 3,500 psi, the ability to be submerged and an extremely fast cure rate so that customers can complete durable projects in less time than ever before. SpectraLock 1 is simple to maintain and use, safe to use with no epoxy resins and is available in a wide variety of colors to match any design.

“SpectraLock 1 is a product of more than a decade of research and development. After going through thousands of iterations, SpectraLock 1 is the only formula on the market that exceeds ANSI A118.3 performance and provides the strength, quality and application opportunities in a true, pre-mixed grout,” said Ryan Blair, Laticrete Senior Product Manager. “SpectraLock 1 is the solution needed to reduce the risk of installation errors, reduce waste and overall material costs while offering more durability.”

This patent pending, professional-grade grout offers all the benefits from the original Laticrete® SpectraLock, a highly chemical resistant industrial grade epoxy grout, without the hassle of mixing. SpectraLock 1 provides exceptional durability, extreme versatility and excellent color consistency – even with the most demanding applications. It is the only pre-mixed grout in the market that meets and/or exceeds the ANSI A118.3 specification.

Ideal for bathrooms, steam showers and kitchens plus exterior applications such as pools and patios, SpectraLock 1 is the most functional pre-mixed grout on the market. Not only can SpectraLock 1 be utilized for more installations than other pre-mixed grouts, users gain the added benefit of increasing overall productivity since no sealing or mixing is required. It also provides an exceptionally easy clean up while inhibiting the growth of stain-causing mold and mildew.
