Custom® Building Products is helping tile installers save time on showers and other projects with the introduction of SpeedSlope™ Rapid Setting Sloping Mortar. A rapid setting, rapid hardening, polymer modified pre-blended, cement-based mortar bed and sloping mortar for leveling and ramping up to 3 inches on horizontal substrates and 5 inches in confined areas like trenches, SpeedSlope is ideal for shower installations. SpeedSlope, which sets in one to two hours, is also a perfect surface preparation choice for additional applications including patches, ramps, floors and walls.
Used for dry pack installations on shower floors and mortar beds meetings ANSI 108.1, SpeedSlope delivers an exceptionally smooth and hard finish exceeding 4,000 PSI compressive strength — perfect for the application of thinset mortars. SpeedSlope is designed for faster and easier shower installations regardless of size and shape, making it an attractive alternative to prefabricated shower bases. As a high-performance, fast-track, modified sloping mortar, SpeedSlope makes any tile installation job more time and cost-efficient.
Appropriate for dry and wet commercial and residential projects, SpeedSlope is used as part of a qualifying system of Custom mortars and grouts, the tile installation can qualify for up to a lifetime system warranty that covers the cost of replacing installation materials, tile and labor in the event of a system defect.
