Today, we wanted to take the opportunity to explain why we’re so proud to partner with LATICRETE®. Their commitment to excellence and innovation is always invaluable, especially on commercial projects.

LATICRETE® Is Always on the Cutting Edge of Innovation
LATICRETE® has a long history of innovation. They are always looking for new ways to improve their products and services, and they are constantly investing in research and development.
Here are some examples of how LATICRETE® is always on the cutting edge of innovation:
- They have developed a number of high-performance grout products that are resistant to chemicals, stains, and moisture. These products are ideal for use in commercial and residential applications where durability and performance are essential.
- They have developed a number of water-based sealers that are environmentally friendly and easy to apply. These sealers protect surfaces from staining and fading, and they help to extend the life of the material.
- They were the first company to develop a printing mortar specifically designed for 3D printing applications!
LATICRETE® has been at the forefront of the development of 3D printing technology for the construction industry. Their printing mortar is a high-performance cementitious material that is specifically designed for use in 3D printing applications.
LATICRETE® mortar has several advantages over traditional construction materials. It is strong, durable, and easy to use. It is also a sustainable material, as it can be made with recycled materials.
In addition to its technical properties, LATICRETE® mortar is also cost-effective. It is priced competitively, and it can be used to build 3D printed homes at a fraction of the cost of traditional construction methods.
LATICRETE® mortar has enabled homebuilders to construct 3D printed homes that are both sustainable and affordable. These homes are built faster, with less waste, and they can be customized to meet the specific needs of the homeowner.
NXT® Level Flow
LATICRETE NXT® Level Flow is a high-performance, self-leveling underlayment. Here are just a few of the reasons we recommend it:
- It is easy to use. LATICRETE NXT® Level Flow is a pre-mixed product that is ready to use right out of the bucket. This makes it a convenient option for tile installers, as there is no need to mix or measure materials.
- It is self-leveling. LATICRETE NXT® Level Flow flows evenly across the substrate, eliminating the need for screeding or troweling. This saves time and labor, and it ensures that the underlayment is evenly distributed.
- It is durable. LATICRETE NXT® Level Flow is a high-performance product that is designed to withstand the rigors of everyday use. It is resistant to cracking, shrinking, and moisture, making it a long-lasting solution for underlayment.
- It is versatile. LATICRETE NXT® Level Flow can be used on a variety of substrates, including concrete, plywood, and cement board. This makes it a versatile product that can be used in a variety of applications.
LATICRETE SPECTRALOCK® is formulated with epoxy resins that make it resistant to staining from a variety of substances, including water, acids, and alkalis.
It is a high-performance grout that is designed to withstand the rigors of everyday use. It is resistant to cracking, chipping, and fading, making it a long-lasting solution for grout.
Of course, it’s also extremely appealing from an aesthetic perspective. It is available in a variety of colors, so it can be matched to the specific tile installation. This especially important when working with porcelain, which also offers near-limitless aesthetic versatility.
If you’re looking for something extra special, we recommend taking a look at SPECTRALOCK DAZZLE as well, which is great for eye-catching outdoor use!
It likely comes to no surprise to anyone reading this blog that people have been increasingly concerned with the environmental impact of construction.
Here is yet another area where LATICRETE® has been on the cutting edge. On their website, you can see the full list of their products which are certified by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI).
This certification shows that these products follow rigorous standards for low emission of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Low VOC emission is essential for indoor quality because VOCs can lead to a variety of different health conditions.
LATICRETE® has been an industry leader in low VOC emissions. In fact, they were the first tile and stone installation material manufacturer to get the GEI certification.
This is one of the reasons we recommend LATICRETE® products when we consult with and supply porcelain tile installers. As we’ve previously discussed, porcelain itself doesn’t emit VOCs. If this is a benefit your customers are looking for, it makes sense to pair the VOC-free porcelain with VOC-free installation materials.
