Laticrete (Bethany, Connecticut) recently released 257 Titanium, a product billed as a lightweight high-performance thin-set mortar that’s designed for the installation of GPT and gauged porcelain tile panels/slabs.

The 257 Titanium exceeds ANSI A118.4, A118.11 and A118.15, which the company says ensures reliable interior, exterior and submerged installations.

The company also adds that the produce utilizes Laticrete’s Hydromatic Cure Chemistry, which allows the material to cure in a predictable manner.

“Gauged Porcelain Tile Panel installations can be challenging as the tile can be as large as 10 feet by 5 feet and obtaining maximum thin-set coverage is critical,” said Laticrete Senior Product Manager Jonathan Scott.

“Due to its exceptional wetting out properties, superior transfer and 60-minute open time, 257 Titanium ensures maximum coverage and a high-strength bond that will not deteriorate over time.”

The product is silica sand-free, which the company notes reduces exposure to respirable silica and contributes to a consistency that eases troweling.

It comes in 25-pound bags in gray and white.
