BETHANY, CT -- Laticrete, a manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, recently announced the introduction of Tri-Lite™, a lightweight, high-performance, tri-purpose mortar designed for large and heavy tile, thin-bed and wall installations.

"We mean it when we say this lightweight large and heavy tile mortar is versatile," said Jonathan Scott, product manager for adhesives. "Tri-Lite™ is an ideal adhesive mortar for three of the most common tile and stone installations. This, combined with superior non-sag capability, an ultra-creamy consistency and unmatched workability, makes Tri-Lite the 'go-to' product for many installations."

A 30 lb. (13.6 kg.) bag of Tri-Lite provides the same coverage as a 50 lb. (22.7 kg.) bag of traditional mortar, so it's both easier to transport and easier to trowel. The cutting-edge product exceeds ANSI A118.15, A118.11 and the ISO 13007-C2TES1P1 classification.

Tri-Lite features excellent large and heavy tile (medium bed) performance and can be built up to 3/4-inch (19 mm) thick without shrinkage. The product is available in 30 lb. (13.6 kg.) bags, in gray and white, and is a component of the Laticrete® 25-Year System Warranty, which provides single-source protection for everything from the substrate to the grout.

Tri-Lite will be available for purchase in July 2016. For more information, visit
