December 23, 2019, Bethany, Conn. -- Building Design + Construction has named LATICRETE, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, a ‘101 Top Products’ award winner for 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. Now in its third year, the annual program recognizes the best new or upgraded products for the building design and construction industry. 125 TRI MAX was named a winner in the ‘Flooring’ category and allows for faster, more effective tile and stone installations.
“Building Design + Construction’s ‘101 Top Products’ awards focus on innovation and what the leading building products can do for its users. Not only does 125 TRI MAX act as the solution contractors need to carry fewer products on the jobsite for a single installation, but according to our research, it is also 33% faster to install than traditional sound, anti-fracture mat or membranes, and contractors can save 15 to 20% on product costs,” said LATICRETE Senior Product Manager Jay Conrod.
High-performance benefits of 125 TRI MAX include fiber reinforcement 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 high volume areas. 125 TRI MAX has also been independently tested to meet ANSI A22.214.171.124 “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% post-consumer recycled materials to contribute to LEED points and is GREENGUARD certified for sustainable building.
