Celebrating 65 Years


It's another Throwback Thursday, and this time we're looking at a photo of LATICRETE founders Dr. Henry M. Rothberg and Lillian Rothberg on a job site way back in 1964.

This photo was taken 57 years ago. The tilers in the background are installing roof tiles using LATICRETE 4237 Latex Additive. 4237 is a specially designed latex additive for use with 211 to make a high strength latex bed, and is still being installed widely across Australia to this day!

Here's a fun little project, Jarda Skorpil from Skorpil Tiling is creating a thin brick veneer at this Queensland residence by cutting down the original bricks of the house and adding depth to this window area.
