Polymer-Modified Thin-Set Mortars

Polymer-modified thin-set mortar options are among the most popular for setting tile. They are ideal for mosaic, small or medium-sized tile installations on walls, floors or countertops. Apply up to 1/2" thick.

Large Format Tile Mortars

Select one of CUSTOM’s dry-set modified mortars for large and heavy tile (also called medium bed mortar) to support large format tile installations. Large format tile (LFT) is 15" (38 cm) or greater on any side as well as heavier natural stone such as marble, granite, travertine, slate and limestone. These mortars may be applied up to 3/4" thick and provide superior coverage and bond strength while reducing lippage between tiles.

Thick Bed Mortar

Thick bed mortar is designed to float a mortar bed for ceramic tile. Use when setting a mortar bed for shower installations. Also ideal for commercial and industrial applications.

Rapid Setting Mortars

Choose rapid-setting mortars for time-critical installations with minimal downtime. These mortars can provide thin-set and medium bed options that cure quickly, allowing same-day grouting and use.

Non-Modified Mortars

CUSTOM's non-modified mortars deliver the basic qualities necessary for specialized tile installations and for use with specific membranes that are not compatible with polymer-modified or fortified thin-set mortars.

Chemical Resistant Epoxy Mortars

Chemical-resistant epoxy mortars are formulated for installations where exceptionally high strength, chemical and impact resistance are required. The high compressive and bond strengths of these mortars make them ideal for industrial applications and commercial kitchens. Choose these mortars to accommodate the specific demands of specialized environments.

CUSTOM's mortar additives can be used in place of water to increase the performance of non-modified mortars. The additives improve shock absorption and increase the mortars' water resistance and bond strength.
