LATICRETE Launches 170.5 Sound & Crack Isolation

August 31, 2020, Bethany, Conn. -- LATICRETE, a leading manufacturer of
globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has launched
170.5 Sound & Crack Isolation Mat, a high-performance acoustical underlayment
system that muffles impact noises through ceramic tiles, stone and other hard
surfacing materials. The 170.5 Sound & Crack Isolation Mat is a Greenguard
certified, 5-millimeter thick rubberized membrane comprised of 88.5%
post-consumer recycled materials that helps prevent the transmission of
substrate cracks of up to 1/8 inch (3 millimeters) from transferring to the
finished floor. It is also equipped with anti-microbial technology for added
peace of mind both during and after the installation process.

“Implementing an additional thickness option to our Sound Control and
Anti-fracture portfolio with the new 170.5 Sound & Crack Isolation Mat has
enabled us to advance even further in the flooring industry by entering a
completely new sector: sound dampening for commercial applications,” said Dustin
Prevete, LATICRETE Senior Product Manager. “This product not only has superior
load-bearing and sound reduction qualities, but it offers ease and speed of use
which is vital for improving workability and efficiency.”

The product applies quickly and easily with a suitable LATICRETE® thin-set
mortar, is eco-friendly and is GREENGUARD-certified, contributing to LEED
credits. Additionally, with its load-bearing and crack-resistant properties, IIC
and STC ratings that exceed international building requirements and durable
underlayment, the 170.5 Sound & Crack Mat is ideal for a broad range of
commercial and light institutional applications.

The 170.5 Sound & Crack Mat is a 5-millimeter thick rubberized membrane and
is packaged in a 4-foot by 30-foot, or 120 square feet, (1.2-meter by 9.1-meter,
