More about Polymer Modified Mortars
Adding polymer to traditional mortars offers improved workability, adhesion and curing performance. It also makes the mortar suitable for use as a thin set mortar, as the added strength allows for a thinner layer of mortar to be effective.
TEC® offers many types of polymer-modified mortars, including high-performance premium formulas, general purpose products, lightweight modified thin set mortars and more.
Super Flex™ Mortar, an ultra-premium mortar, offers a patented bonding formula that provides unparalleled bond strength, especially with glass and porcelain tile. 3N1® Performance Mortar is a lightweight premium mortar that combines medium bed and non-sag features. Full Flex® Mortar can be used over plywood, cementitious surfaces and other substrates. And Ultimate Large Tile Mortar is a high-performance medium or thin set mortar ideal for installing large format tile.
For general purpose use, TEC offers FortiFlex®2 Latex Modified Thin Set Mortar, suitable for most installations, and Sturdi Flex™ Latex Modified Thin Set Mortar, a reliable all-purpose mortar that can be used for bonding porcelain and ceramic tile.
Rounding out the TEC range of polymer-modified mortars are Medium Bed Mortar and FortiFlex® 1 Mortar. Both are entry-level mortars suitable for a range of applications, and both are free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Finally, TEC offers a lightweight SturdiLight™ Lightweight Latex Modified Thin Set Mortar. This is suitable for everyday applications over plywood, cementitious surfaces and other substrates. It contains 5% pre-consumer recycled content (gray), 4% pre-consumer recycled content (white) and zero VOCs.
