Laticrete has enhanced its NXT Skim fast-drying underlayment. The improved formula can now hold more water, resulting in a creamier consistency for a smoother application and sleeker finish, as well as an extended pot life and easier troweling, according to the company. The packaging has also been redesigned with a tin tie resealable feature that allows the product to be saved for additional uses, minimizing product waste and increasing cost savings for the installer.
“When re-formulating NXT Skim, we listened to customer feedback and adjusted accordingly to improve contractor efficiency,” said Maria Oliveira, corporate marketing manager. “Its rapid-setting properties and ease of use make it an ideal solution for today’s schedule- and budget-driven projects without sacrificing quality. [And because of new] packaging, contractors no longer have to waste unused product and can simply reseal the bag for later use, saving time and money. Additionally, the plastic, cube style container provides a more secure base on the jobsite and for later storage.”
