MAPEI Ultralite S2 is a new mortar designed to address the major issues involved in getting a perfect fit between large, thin tile and its substrate. With MAPEI Ultralite S2, architects are now able to design dramatically with large, lightweight thin tiles without worrying about the durability of the installation process, the company said.

This highly deformable, polymer-modified mortar is formulated with Easy Glide Technology for ease of application. MAPEI Ultralite S2 features a long open time, extended coverage and transfer properties to enhance back-buttering, which works best for thin porcelain tiles as well as traditional ceramic tiles and stone. MAPEI Ultralite S2’s unique Ultralite Technology is manufactured with 20 percent recycled content, the company added.
