Laticrete Strata Mat
Designed to replace traditional underlayment materials, LATICRETE STRATA MAT is for use under ceramic tile and stone installations in both residential and commercial applications. The unique patent pending design of LATICRETE STRATA MAT provides for an enhanced mechanical bond of the adhesive mortar and provides for faster drying time of the mortar, allowing for shorter time to grout. Specifically designed for use with both modified and unmodified mortars, LATICRETE STRATA MAT allows for the proper adhesive mortar to be used with porcelain or large format tiles and stone.

Here is a list of the STRATA MAT advantages:

  • Mortar Hydration Vents – creates a mechanical bond between the mat and adhesive mortar – allows the mortar to cure faster providing a stronger bond of tile at 16-24 hours for faster time to grout.
  • Allows for use of the appropriate mortar per industry standards.
  • Provides vapor management.
  • Eliminates transmission of in plane substrate cracks of up to 1/8″ (3mm).
  • Instant coverage verification allows for installer to see mortar coverage underneath the mat during installation without having to lift and verify.
  • Allows for easier floor layout as chalk lines are easily visible on surface prior to installation.
  • Part of the LATICRETE Lifetime System Warranty.
  • Rated Extra Heavy per ASTM C627.
  • Lightweight, easy to carry and fast to install with standard tools.
  • Can be used under moisture sensitive stone.
