June 3, 2019, Bethany, Conn. -- LATICRETE, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has introduced 125 TRI MAX™, the flooring industry’s first-ever three-in-one adhesive, sound control and crack isolation product that eliminates the need for sound and anti-fracture mats and membranes, allowing for faster, more effective tile and stone installations. Thanks to its three-in-one versatility and lightweight nature, 125 TRI MAX saves construction professionals money on labor, storage, freight and logistics.
“125 TRI MAX is the solution needed to allow contractors to carry fewer products on the jobsite for a single installation. Now, rather than needing an adhesive, sound control and crack isolation product, contractors only need 125 TRI MAX,” said LATICRETE Senior Product Manager Jay Conrod. “According to our research, using 125 TRI MAX is 33 percent faster than traditional sound, anti-fracture mat or membrane installations, and contractors can save 15 to 20 percent on product costs.”
High-performance benefits of 125 TRI MAX include reinforcement with KevlarⓇ to produce a stronger adhesive bond and a “Heavy Service” rating per TCNA performance levels (RE: ASTM C627 Robinson Floor Test) to support traffic in malls, stores, commercial kitchens, laboratories, auto showrooms or service centers, shipping and receiving areas. 125 TRI MAX has also been independently tested to meet ANSI A18.104.22.168 “High Performance” specifications for superior crack isolation protection, with the ability to prevent the transmission of cracks up to 1/8 inch (3 millimeters), and ASTM E2179 and ASTM E492 for sound reduction.
125 TRI MAX contains 36 percent post-consumer recycled materials to contribute to LEED points and is GREENGUARD certified for sustainable building.
A 25-pound (11.3 kilogram) bag provides the same coverage as a 50-pound (22.7 kilogram) bag.
