What a Customer Review!




Our new Technical Sales Rep, George Andriotis, is already doing an excellent job in VIC and it's not going unnoticed! George recently provided hands-on training at a LATICRETE stockist, The Pool Tile Company in Melbourne, and here's what they had to say afterwards:

"George has gone above and beyond with his training and instruction on how to use your products. None of our team in Melbourne have had any experience in tiling previously and his training and passing on of knowledge was excellent today", said Shaun Cartwright, National Sales Manager, The Pool Tile Company.

Congrats to George on a job well done!

Training at Macquarie Fields TAFE




LATICRETE Technical Sales Rep, Glenn Mannix, was recently at Macquarie Fields TAFE facilitating training for the students on using HYDRO BAN®, waterproofing and crack isolation membrane, and HYDRO BAN® Adhesive& Sealant. The students were devoted to their craft both in the classroom and with hands-on training using LATICRETE  products: 

  • HYDRO BAN is a thin, load bearing waterproofing/crack isolation membrane that DOES NOT require the use of fabric in the field, coves or corners. HYDRO BAN is a single component, self-curing liquid rubber polymer that forms a flexible, seamless waterproofing membrane. HYDRO BAN bonds directly to a wide variety of substrates.
  • HYDRO BAN Adhesive & Sealant is a one component, fast curing, hybrid elastomeric adhesive and sealant. This product is specifically formulated to meet today’s Green Building Standards and has excellent adhesion on a wide variety of substrates. Particularly for use under HYDRO BAN Waterproof Membrane as a transition fillet and crack filler.

At LATICRETE we are committed to training and classes that discuss commercial, residential, industrial tile and stone installation practices and industry standards. Our training utilises both classroom and hands-on product demonstrations.

Interior Designers and Tilers Choice in Grout


George Andriotis, LATICRETE Technical Sales Rep, visited Bailey Studio in Canterbury, VIC, to supply the team with their preferred choice of LATICRETE installation system brochures and our popular Grout and Sealant Colour Kit. 

Finding tile grout that will withstand time, wear, and the elements, has been a challenge confronted by installers, designers and builders for decades. Thanks to the dedication and ingenuity of the experts at LATICRETE, tile grout is now available that offers product features previously only dreamed of for commercial and home owner/do-it-yourself installations. 

Did you know SPECTRALOCK® PRO Premium Grout* is the "StainProof" grout? It's available in 40 colours, easy to maintain, cleans to the original colour, inhibits the growth of stain-causing mould and mildew in the grout joints with antimicrobial product protection - great for interior and exterior on floors and walls. Ideal for re-grouting applications. Perfect for swimming pools, spas, fountains and other wet area applications. 

Add that little extra touch, with the DAZZLE™ component. With SPECTRALOCK® Grout DAZZLE™ there are over 200 combinations of 'StainProof' grout available for your installation - not to mention the glow-in-the-dark component!
