ProSpec’s lightweight mortar

ProSpec, Bonsal American’s brand of professionally specified products, has introduced PermaFlex Lite 525, a lightweight thin-set mortar for tile and natural stone installations.

The morter’s lightweight technology allows a 25-pound bag of mix to offer the same coverage as a 50-pound bag of traditional mortar. It also incorporates post-consumer recycled glass microspheres, rather than sand, to help divert waste from landfills. The reduced weight per bag means easier lifting for the installer. These design features give the product an opportunity to contribute to the accumulation of LEED project points.

The new lightweight technology also boasts superior workability that makes it easier to mix and trowel. It is ideal for interior or exterior installation on walls, floors or ceilings. PermaFlex Lite 525 sets most types of ceramic tile or stone, including glass, porcelain and quarry tiles, pavers and marble. Its nonsag formula also makes it ideal for installing heavy ceramic tile without slippage.
