New Product: Laticrete[r] Blue 92

July 11, 2004


Creating an extremely flexible membrane when cured, the Laticrete[r] Blue 92 Anti-Fracture Membrane practically eliminates cracks in tile work. Now equipped with Microban[r] antimicrobial protection to inhibit the growth of stain causing mold and mildew in the membrane, Laticrete Blue 92 Anti-Fracture Membrane can be used whenever hairline cracking threatens to occur.

While the thin-bed method of tile installation provides many advantages, problems with shrinkage cracking in concrete and other substrates can counteract any good installation. Laticrete Blue 92 Anti-Fracture Membrane prevents this from adversely affecting the finished floor.

“Laticrete Blue 92 Anti-Fracture Membrane reduces crack transmission in marble and other stone, ceramic tile and thin brick, installed using thin-set method,” said Sean Boyle, Laticrete Product Marketing Manager. “It's also ideal under thin resin terrazzo. Not only was the product rated Extra Heavy Service per ASTM C627/TCA, but it adds no appreciable thickness to floor construction. Easy to apply, to cleanup and fast to cure, Laticrete Blue 92 Anti-Fracture Membrane is a great preventative measure for any residential and commercial installation.”

Laticrete Blue 92 Anti-Fracture Membrane is a component of the Laticrete[r] Residential Lifetime Warranty and is included in the Laticrete[r] Residential Tile & Stone Installation Solutions. Suitable substrates to be used in conjunction with Laticrete Blue 92 Anti-Fracture Membrane include concrete, mortar beds, renders, cement backer board, cement terrazzo, concrete masonry and exterior grade plywood for interior applications only.
