INNOVATIVE MATERIAL SCIENCE EXPERTISE IS IN OUR DNA

Today, the R&D team at LATICRETE International has developed 3D printable cementitious mortars that will fuel the future of 3D printed housing around the world. From building complex buildings to rescue housing when natural disasters occur. We are proud to be part of this innovative, problem solving, leading edge product and market development.

Its potential brings another exciting possibility: 3D printed houses are a far less expensive method of construction. By reducing costs, building more affordable houses using fewer materials and less labor is now possible, leading to a positive social impact in addressing the current global housing shortage.

“The vision of LATICRETE is to improve the built world and the lives of those who build it.”

3D Construction Is Fast Production

3D printing in the construction industry means greatly reduced production time. That’s because the machines themselves are very fast, some of them can manufacture the wall of a small 600 to 800 SF (55 to 75-square-meter) home in just 24 hours. 3D printers are also fully automated, which eliminates human error. The machine needs to be monitored, but most of the production process doesn’t involve a high degree of labor.

While curved concrete structures that are poured into forms are solid, those that are created from 3D printing can be hollow. This allows space for necessary building services right inside the structural elements of the building. Our advantage is in our rheology expertise – we have a cement-based mortars that are compatible with various types of 3D printers. Our mission is to continue to be positioned to what we have been throughout our history and product offering - a globally recognized, trusted building material manufacturer.

Sustainability

Through design innovation combined with optimal use of our 3D mortars, construction printing can also pave the way for a 3D built environment with greater sustainability. There is virtually no material waste in 3D printing by using the process of additive manufacturing, in this case, to lay successive layers of material on top of each other until the final product is complete.

Customer Service

Our 3D team is focused on technical printing support; Our scientists and technical experts work directly with the printing contractors from beginning to end for a successful print.
