Laticrete launches installer-friendly mortars

Home Categories Installation Laticrete launches installer-friendly mortars

Bethany, Conn.—Laticrete has launched 3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R. The formula—which contains no respirable crystalline silica, know to be harmful when inhaled—was crafted from carefully selected polymers, Portland cement and lightweight aggregates, and does not require the use of a latex admixture, only water. Both are said to have excellent performance in vertical and overhead applications such as concrete repairs or wall renders.

“We wanted to not only improve workability, but also safety, which is why there is no respirable crystalline silica,” said Elvis Torres, Laticrete product manager. “3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R showcases the dedication Laticrete has in creating healthier job sites and products that are easier to install for their customers. Plus, at half the weight of traditional bags of mortar while covering the same area, contractors work less and get more done.”

At 30 pounds, 3701 Lite Mortar and 3701 Lite Mortar R are half the weight of conventional mortars yet offer the same amount of coverage as a traditional 60-pound bag. The lightweight feature makes it easier and safer to transport and handle on the job site. The product is ideal for tight locations such as bathrooms where mortar beds would be applied. Additionally, the versatile formula makes it freeze/thaw-stable and suitable for interior or exterior applications.

3701 Lite Mortar R is the rapid cure formula and allows for a quicker installation, drying faster at approximately two hours.
