Laticrete, a manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, announced today the introduction of Tri-Lite, a lightweight, high-performance, tri-purpose mortar designed for large and heavy tile, thin-bed and wall installations.
"We mean it when we say this lightweight large and heavy tile mortar is versatile,” said Jonathan Scott, product manager for adhesives. ” Tri-Lite is an ideal adhesive mortar for three of the most common tile and stone installations. This, combined with superior non-sag capability, an ultra-creamy consistency and unmatched workability, makes Tri-Lite the go-to product for many installations.
A 30 lb. (13.6 kg.) bag of Tri-lite provides the same coverage as a 50 lb. (22.7 kg.) bag of traditional mortar, so it’s both easier to transport and easier to trowel. The cutting-edge product exceeds ANSI A118.15, A118.11 and the ISO 13007—C2TES1P1 classification.
Tri-Lite features excellent large and heavy tile (medium bed) performance and can be built up to 3/4" (19 mm) thick without shrinkage. It is available in 30 lb. (13.6 kg.) bags (grey and white) and is a component of the Latircrete’s 25-year system warranty, which provides single-source protection for everything from the substrate to the grout.
TRI-LITE will be available for purchase in July 2016.
