Testimonial from a Tiler

LATICRETE 335 Rapid Premium Flexible Adhesive - Gets Thumbs Up from Tiler!

We thought we would share in the below email from a tiler which was addressed to our LATICRETE Sales Rep, Glenn Mannix in NSW:

"Morning Glenn. 

I know I say this every time, but damn your products are
good. Used that bag of 335 rapid yesterday and the one thing I love with
LATICRETE product is the bucket life and it great, never set or went off
quick, laid tiles had plenty of time to adjust, then leave it and bam it
went off like a rock. 

Other rapid glues are almost unusable as they skin up while you are notching. 

Best quick set glue I have used. Thanks for the bag and will get Mac to keep some in stock as I 
will always keep a bag on my van for patch work. Will let you know how I 

go with that 4-XLT when I use it. Cheers mark."

Commercial & Residential Installation Systems & Our APRIL Promo!

Glass tile is no different to other tiles when it comes to following the trend of increasing format size.  We are seeing a transition from the much loved glass mosaic to larger format like 600x300mm.  Along with this size increase comes a greater susceptibility for tiles to fracture from cracks telegraphing out of the substrate; and/or the stress of high shrink mortars.

The LATICRETE System of installation materials will provide a way of dealing with glass tile installation issues to avoid these undesirable outcomes to ensure an enduring installation.

HYDRO BAN®, the ultimate crack suppression and waterproof membrane; LATICRETE® Glass Tile Adhesive (GTA) will provide a permanent, low shrink mortar that will not crack the tile; and SPECTRALOCK® PRO Grout for colour consistent, stain resistant grout.

For further information on how to specify and lay glass tile on your project and qualify for an industry leading warranty, contact LATICRETE, call 1800 331 012 or email us here to enquire about our APRIL Promo, FREE Samples or to arrange a FREE Demo !

What Mosaic Artists Love & What We Love

We love Mosaic Artists - Sometimes they love us -
The video says it all !

Nancie Mills Pipgras sent the below email to our GM, Henry B. Rothberg regarding the above YouTube video:

"As I type this, there have already been over 100 hits and even a comment including, "will check out the laticrete page."  Can you say "Results"?
In addition, I trumpeted the new MAN sponsorship and mentioned LATICRETE's support of contemporary mosaic art - MAN and SAMA - in this week's BOM.  Nothing of what I wrote is disingenuous or gratuitous. You folks really are "the real deal" and the mosaic community should know that.
A PDF of The BOM attached and here is the URL: http://eepurl.com/xMEjX   This week's distribution was over 4,900 subscribers - the list keeps growing"

Mark McKenna a Long Time LATICRETE User

Mark McKeena a long time LATICRETE user was awarded the tiling contract at this penthouse apartment at Bayview Harbour, QLD.

The project involves: 3 bathrooms, a kitchen, retiling of the floor area in marble and a difficult job in adhering a new coping tile on top of a fibreglass shell. LATAPOXY® 300 Adhesive was the answer and LATICRETE 125 Sound & Crack Adhesive was the answer for noise!

LATAPOXY 300 Adhesive is a chemical resistant, epoxy adhesive that will bond to most sound, clean surfaces. The adhesive spreads easily and cleans with water while fresh. LATAPOXY 300 Adhesive is a factory-proportioned kit consisting of epoxy resin, hardener and chemical resistant silica filler. LATAPOXY 300 Adhesive can be used in interior and exterior (see limitations) walls and floors, wet and dry areas. Click here for more info.

125 Sound & Crack Adhesive is a superior crack prevention and sound isolation adhesive. Independently tested to ANSI A118.12 specification for crack isolation for ceramic tile and stone installations and independently tested to ASTM E2179 and ASTM E492 for impact sound isolation. 125 Sound & Crack Adhesive is a single component adhesive which takes the place of costly time consuming membrane or mat systems by allowing for faster, more effective tile or stone installations.
