Bethany, Conn.

Information about the Masonry Industry

LATICRETE 125 Anti-Fracture Mortar is a lightweight, crack-prevention mortar that passes the ANSI A118.12 specification for crack isolation in thin-set ceramic tile and dimensional stone installations. The mortar takes the place of liquid or sheet anti-fracture membranes and thin-set combinations for crack isolation, bridging existing cracks up to 1/8-inch, and preventing the transmission of new cracks to the tiled surface. LATICRETE 125 Anti-Fracture Mortar is a two-component mortar reinforced with Kevlar to provide strength and flexibility, and its lightweight formula allows installers to quickly and easily install tile or stone yielding the same coverage as a 50-pound bag of traditional thin-set. For more information, call 800-243-4788, ext. 235, or visit www.laticrete.com.
