Laticrete has created a first in the adhered masonry veneer industry with MVIS Premium Pointing Mortar Base. 

The Laticrete Masonry Veneer Installation System (MVIS) utilizes water-dispersible pigment packs, giving architects, designers and installers the ability to match the styles, preferences and demands of any project or homeowner. 

Select from any of 40 stock color pigment packs, and mix with the neutral base right before installing to achieve consistent, vibrant colors across the entire project. In addition, you can choose from the AnyColor system, unlocking an infinite palette of colors including the most popular paint offerings from Behr, Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams, or any color in the Pantone universe.  

”The Laticrete Masonry Veneer Installation System, or MVIS, is an evolution in how installers apply thin veneers,” said Daniel Rothberg, Laticrete Product Manager. “We’ve created a system that saves installers time and money, while achieving superior results. MVIS Premium Pointing Mortar is the perfect finishing touch, a totally-unique product that allows installers to create truly innovative designs. And nobody can match our system’s warranty... up to 25-years!”

MVIS Premium Pointing Mortar is ideal for any number of exterior and interior projects including glazed thin brick, glazed block, porcelain pavers, and hardscapes. Fiber-reinforcement allows users to create, strong, durable joints of up to half an inch, and Microban antimicrobial technology resists the growth of mold and mildew, keeping installations looking clean in the most challenging environments. The single, common base reduces the need to keep large stockpiles of different color bases on hand, instead relying on pigment packs to fit the needs of each job. The pre-packaged pigment packs also guarantee color consistency from batch-to-batch for optimum quality control across the life cycle of a project. 

MVIS Premium Pointing Mortar Base also holds multiple certifications and declarations, including UL Greenguard Gold Certifications for low chemical emissions, Health Product Declarations (HPD) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPD). For more information, visit
