Bringing The Inside Out with Fusion XT!

17 Jun 2024 | BALI Member News

Accredited Supplier Larsen Building Products is excited to launch the long-awaited new Fusion XT product range! As a complete external paving and tiling solution, this range comprises five high-quality, high-performance products including three jointing compounds: Fine-Joint, Brush-Joint, and Flow-Joint Smooth, as well as Priming Slurry Bonding Mortar and Brick-Slip Bond Stone & Cladding Adhesive.

With various jointing compounds available, Larsen has the right product to suit whichever joint width is preferred. For joint widths of up to 15mm, the Fine-Joint comes in 3 popular colours (Anthracite, Grey and Limestone) and can be walked on in as little as 3-4 hours.

The Brush-Joint is perfect for those wanting joint widths of 3-20mm, but needs an extra bit of setting time before being walked on (typically 10-24 hours). This ready-to-use, brush-in jointing compound comes in 3 different colours: Black, Buff and Grey.

The Flow-Joint Smooth, not only incorporates Eco Reduced-Carbon properties, but is also rapid-setting at only 15-20 minutes. For joint widths of 3-50mm, this product is ideal for a fast-track finish and can be walked on in 1 hour! Like the other Larsen jointing compounds, the Flow-Joint smooth is available in 3 best-selling colours: Buff, Charcoal and Natural. 

Whichever joint width is preferred for the external paving or tiling project, rest assured that Larsen delivers products that perform. Each of the three jointing compounds are suitable for most types of paving and are easy-to-apply. Supplied in durable buckets, the Fusion XT products are specially formulated to achieve professional results every time! 

Paul Luff, Larsen Sales Manager (Tiling & Flooring Division), speaks of the new Fusion XT product range:

"This is a super bucket range; perfect for DIY and retail, as it keeps everything clean and tidy. As specialists in external paving and tiling solutions, Larsen has created these buckets that detail all the key features and easy-to-follow instructions."

Along with a range of jointing compounds, the Fusion XT collection also includes Priming Slurry Bonding Mortar and Brick-Slip Bond Stone & Cladding Adhesive. The Priming Slurry is a bonding mortar, which is essential for creating a bond between paving and the bedding mortar. Suitable for porcelain, natural stone, precast concrete flags & clay pavers.

Larsen is proud to be able to supply this Fusion XT Priming Slurry which is a fully BS 7533 (code of practice for the structural design of pavements using modular paving units) compliant bonding mortar for bound surface construction. It also incorporates Eco Reduced-Carbon properties, which means that for every 1 tonne of priming slurry used, this is equivalent to carbon absorbed by growing 1 tree for 10 years or not driving a car for 107 miles.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Larsen Fusion XT Brick-Slip Bond. This is a specially formulated flexible non-slip standard-setting adhesive. It is designed for the installation of brick slips and natural stone to a range of substrates including brick and blockwork, plastered walls and sand & cement render. With Fiberflex™ Reinforced properties, this product is ideal for walls and floors, both internally and externally. 

As part of the Fusion XT product launch, Larsen is providing innovative sampling units to customers to ease in-store colour selection for the end user. The highly branded units are the perfect point-of-sale support tool, which takes up little counter space, but maximises brand impact.

Paul concludes:

"The last 12 months have really shown how we all need to work together and help one another. Our focus is always on our customers. Excellent retention, quality products, new lines along with genuine customer care have seen this growth continue into 2024 and we remain positive about the future. One of the key areas of focus is communication and here at Larsen, we have expanded our teams in both the Belfast and Tamworth offices. Along with a new highly experienced Marketing Manager, Claire McComb, we now have a strengthened R&D team with the addition of two new Product Development Managers, each focusing on new product formulations for our broad range of markets."
