Laticrete PTK (training seminar) - West Palm Beach, FL.

I have been down here since Wednesday with my rep. from the Tampa area and also with a bunch others including Tom (floormaster) *from the forum, people from Daltile, Spectra Flooring, Specialty Tile, Mastercraft, Solutions along with installers and some general contractors.

Today we did some powerpoint of all the Laticrete products with some discussion and a little hands on of the LatiLevel 86, 3701, 226 thick bed mortar, floor heat, HydroBan, 9235 & 312 vapor reduction membrane.

Laticrete was represented by:
Rob Smith (regional mgr)
Anthony Nelson (supplier rep)
Tony Campos (contractor rep).

Another Class act !

Note to Laticrete- do not that last picture to designers, they may ask us to do something like that.

Glad you're enjoying and learning!

We've used about 4 bags of the 4xlt & have been very happy with it. It is some very sticky pooky.

I think the weather must be an improvement over Connecticut, also. You didn't tell them about the weather, Brian.

Laticrete 125 Sound & Crack Isolation thinset.

This was the demo for the powdered just add water stuff.
We set this yesterday and this am these tile are stuck good.
Cool thing is the ball is still soft but the thin spread out stuff is hard.
They also covered the bucket with plastic and mixed it up this morning
and it was still usable.

Latapoxy 310 hands on demo.

This was the 310 Epoxy Rapid demo out of the gun.

It dried rock hard in 10 minutes







stuck these quarry tiles together and pulled them to an inch apart
and the "dab" dried hard and solid and held them together easy.
