Masonry Veneer Installation System
LATICRETE® Masonry Veneer Installation System (MVIS™)
The increase in popularity of adhered masonry veneer facades has left the industry absent of suitable installation materials and detailed specifications - LATICRETE has the answer! Our proven technology will provide a permanent, high strength installation that is freeze thaw stable and protects from water intrusion.
For over 65 years LATICRETE has continuously provided the latest technology in construction materials and methods to deliver superior problem free installations for tile and stone installations. Utilizing these advanced technologies, the LATICRETE® Masonry Veneer Installation System (MVIS™) is designed to offer complete solutions for adhered masonry veneers.
Installation of masonry veneers is typically performed with on-site mortar mixes that are subject to large variations in quality and performance. Whether over concrete or masonry substrates, installations usually include metal lath and most often provide inadequate protection from the weather resulting in water intrusion and also delamination of the veneer. Difficult to use and very time consuming to prepare, these systems are not engineered as complete wall systems and therefore do not offer warranties from a reliable source that will stand behind the installation.
The LATICRETE MVIS system is also verified through independent testing to perform equally to code approved conventional lath and plaster installation systems for adhered masonry veneers.
The LATICRETE MVIS provides the solution by offering a comprehensive quality controlled installation system. Utilizing proven materials, LATICRETE MVIS products include a revolutionary waterproofing membrane, polymer fortified adhesive mortars that provide non-sag performance, a scratch and brown coat mortar, a masonry pointing mortar and a 100% silicone sealant.
