Products to be showcased

SpectraLock 1

SpectraLock 1 is an evolutionary pre-mixed, stain-proof grout that has the performance of an epoxy. This product offers superior strength at 3,500 psi (24.1 Mpa), the ability to be submerged and an extremely fast curing rate so that installers can complete durable projects in less time than ever before. The grout also provides exceptional versatility and excellent color consistency, even with the most demanding applications.

SpectraLock 1 exceeds all the standards under the ANSI A118.3*, of which no comparable product on the market can claim, according to the company.

*Meets or exceeds ANSI A118.3 specific test designation 5.6

Laticrete Select-Bond

According to Laticrete, its Select-Bond tile and stone adhesive system is an industry-first adhesive system that can reduce a distributor’s adhesives inventory pallet space by 65% and helps ensure an installer always has the right adhesive for the job. It is a green and low-VOC installation system that helps to lower shipping and inventory costs (therefore gaining efficiencies in the supply chain) by using one base adhesive and using smaller “kits” to tailor the characteristics of the adhesive mortar. The polymer modified adhesive can be used for both thin bed and large heavy tile applications. To increase the versatility and enhance the performance of Laticrete Select-Bond, users can add one of these optional adhesive system kits: Non-sag, rapid curing or high performance to meet ANSI A118.15 requirements.

Fracture Ban SC

Fracture Ban SC, a thin, loadbearing, self-curing liquid rubber polymer that can be easily applied in a single coat to form a flexible, seamless, anti-fracture membrane. Fracture Ban SC is rapid drying and cures between one and two hours, increasing productivity and reducing downtime for installers. As a single-component, single-coat material, it also decreases strain on inventory as it requires less material to complete a project. Fracture Ban SC can be applied directly to tile, brick and stone without the need for fabric, providing anti-fracture protection of up to 1/8-inch over shrinkage and other non-structural cracks.

170.5 Sound & Crack Isolation Mat

170.5 Sound & Crack Isolation Mat is a high-performance acoustical underlayment system that muffles impact noises through ceramic tiles, stone and other hard surfacing materials. The 170.5 Sound & Crack Isolation Mat is a Greenguard-certified, 5mm-thick rubberized membrane comprised of 88.5% post-consumer recycled materials that helps prevent the transmission of substrate cracks of up to 1/8-inch from transferring to the finished floor. It is also equipped with anti-microbial technology for added peace of mind both during and after the installation process and carries IIC and STC ratings that exceed international building requirements.

StoneTech luxury vinyl & laminate cleaner

StoneTech luxury vinyl & laminate cleaner is a no-rinse, daily cleaner designed to quickly and safely remove tough dirt, grease, dust and spills on all luxury vinyl, laminate, linoleum and resilient floors and countertops. StoneTech luxury vinyl & laminate cleaner is a water-based, pH-neutral formula that is low in VOC and contains no harmful chemicals, making it safe for use around the home. Its easy-to-use, no-rinse formula provides a quick, streak-free, residue-free and non-dulling clean finish that preserves the beauty of the surface while leaving behind a fresh scent.
