MAVS 1000 is a polymer-modified, factory blended masonry mortar specifically designed for bonding thin natural and manufactured adhered veneers, lightweight precast, and thin brick. The mortar is a mixture of portland cement, dried polymers, masonry sand, and other proprietary additives that give MAVS 1000 excellent workability and sag resistance with greater efflorescence resistance and bond strength than standard Type S mortars. MAVS 1000’s advanced technology improves adhesion and is an excellent option for more challenging masonry applications, such as stacked stone.
MAVS 1000 is designed to bond thin natural stone and manufactured masonry veneers, thin brick, and lightweight precast to solid surfaces such as concrete, brown coat, and masonry in residential and commercial, interior and exterior installations. For large or heavy veneers, upgrade to Omega MAVS 2000 or 3000 mortars.
