SEAL BEACH, CA -- Custom Building Products has introduced Glass Tile Premium Thin-Set Mortar, a new high-performance thin-set mortar that delivers the ultimate in bond strength for all types of larger-format glass, mosaic and other smooth, impervious tile. Glass Tile Premium Thin-Set Mortar is a single component mortar with a high polymer content engineered specifically for the most demanding installations.

Custom Building Products has introduced Glass Tile Premium Thin-Set Mortar for all glass tile installations. 

 

Once used exclusively as accent tiles, glass tile is now more prevalent in both commercial and residential applications. As its popularity grows, glass tile is also increasing in size. Larger-format glass tile is difficult to bond to, and requires exceptionally high bond strength. Custom’s Glass Tile Premium Thin-Set Mortar offers the highest bond strength in the industry, exceeding ANSI A118.4, A118.11 and A137.2 requirements. Its non-slip, non-sag formula keeps glass tile firmly in place with minimal shrinkage, even on vertical installations.

"Custom’s research and development engineers have created a premium thin-set that meets both the performance and aesthetic challenges of glass tile installations," said Thomas Carroll, Product Manager for Custom Building Products. "Our Glass Tile Premium Thin-Set Mortar offers an unprecedented combination of bond strength, a creamy, easy-to-trowel formula, and consistent bright white color. Tile professionals can use Glass Tile Premium Thin-Set Mortar with confidence, knowing that they will see performance and results that assure a beautiful, successful installation."

Unlike ceramic tile, where the mortar is usually not visible in a finished installation, the color of the mortar can have a significant impact on the outcome of a project using clear, translucent or iridescent tile. Custom’s Glass Tile Premium Thin-Set Mortar is designed with a process-controlled, color-consistent formula that ensures the same bright white color across the entire installation, creating a bright white background that accentuates the beauty and brilliance of glass tile. Its smooth, creamy formula is easy to spread, ensuring proper, even coverage for superior results.

Glass Tile Premium Thin-Set Mortar is a single-component, high-polymer thin-set that mixes with water and does not require additives. The new mortar is currently available in 25-pound bags of color-consistent bright white.
