Designed specifically for masonry veneers, the new product from LATICRETE - leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry -- aims to provide more safety and workability for installers.


What is it? 


LATICRETE's MVIS™ (Masonry Veneer Installation System) Lite Wall Float is a super lightweight mortar developed with the installer in mind.


Why is it needed? 


The Lite Wall Float showcases the dedication LATICRETE has in contributing to healthier work environments and providing solutions that are easier on the installer.


What are its uses? 


This product is perfect for floating walls or doing renders and provides a great foundation for stone setting applications, allowing installers to place veneer on top of the surface in as little as 16 hours. MVIS Lite Wall Float can be used in conjunction with MVIS Air and Water Barrier after 24 hours, which is a single-component, load-bearing, fluid-applied air barrier membrane that provides waterproofing and crack isolation.


Why is it important? 


Elvis Torres, LATICRETE Product Manager, emphasized that "the excellent adhesion, ease-of-use and safety components that MVIS Lite Wall Float offers makes it an ideal choice for workability and efficiency."


Key Aspects
  • Increases production, reduces exhaustion.
  • Half the weight of traditional bags of mortar.
  • Allows workers to get more done with less strain.
