MAPEI's new Mapelastic™ AquaDefense flexible, thin, fast-drying waterproofing and crack-isolation membrane easily applies to diverse surfaces, allowing tile and stone to be installed after just 30 to 50 minutes. This industrial-strength membrane performs double duty by providing a continuous, foolproof waterproofing barrier under ceramic tile or stone that prevents water damage to adjacent rooms and floors below, while also preventing in-plane cracks from transmitting through finish layer. Odor-free, LEED-compliant Mapelastic AquaDefense is a breeze to apply with roller or brush over flat, curved, irregular surfaces. Add optional Reinforcing Fabric for coves, corners and field applications. For more information on MAPEI products, visit www.mapei.com.

- Product From Ann Sacks
Designed by Italian architect and designer Rodolfo Dordoni, Tidewater (shown) and Lath from Ann Sacks utilize up to 25-percent recycled materials within the tiles’ porcelain composition. Tidewater imparts a striae effect designed to be similar to the draping of a fine textile or the fluidity of warm clay. The irregularity of the tile design gives the surface its character and movement, according to the company. It is offered in two field sizes: 7-7/8”x70-7/8” and 31-1/2"x70-7/8". The design of Lath porcelain tile is inspired by the impression that remained when poured cement is removed from a wood cast. Lath is offered in 8"x47", 12"x47" and 24"x47" planks and is available in Whitewash, Beige, Clay and Ebony.
