STONETECH®

LATICRETE offers a professional and retail line of care and maintenance products for tile, natural stone, grout, and masonry surfaces. Each line provides unique natural look sealers, enhancing sealers and specialised cleaners. Whether it's natural stone, tile, grout or another type, if your surface has some porosity it can stain with water, oil and food-based liquids.

Hot Weather Tiling and Grouting
Hints and Tips


Summer months in Australia are always hot, hot and more hot! There are important things to consider to ensure the best installation of your projects over the next couple of  months.
Conventional Portland cement tile-setting beds, thin-set mortars, cement plasters and stuccos are often permanently damaged when subject to hot, dry temperatures or desert climates immediately after installation. High temperatures remove the water content of the mortar required for Portland cement hydration, curing and strength development. To ensure the best installation of your projects, read our helpful hints and tips for tiling and grouting in hot weather. Click here to read the TDS-1018: Hot Weather Tiling and Grouting.
