Mapelath Synthetic Lath Underlayment & Mortar Reinforcement Kits
Mapelath is a lightweight, noncorroding, alkali-resistant synthetic lath used as a substitute for traditional metal lath. It is lighter and easier to work with. This is recommended to be used when putting mortar on a wooden sub floor in order to reduce cracking of your mortar bed from moisture being drawn into the wooden sub floor and assisting the mortar bed in drying faster than it should. It can also be used under the Quick Pitch Kit on plywood subfloors when installing a surface membrane over top. In order to get the Quick Pitch to stay in place in this type of application you will also require the Quick Clips. Each kit includes Synthetic Lath and Tar Paper.
