Speedymason is manufactured in Sparta Wisconsin and is a division of Advanced Formliners. This made in the USA product provides contractors and do-it-yourselfers a great time saving advantage over any other product in the industry. Because of the unique design, installation of thin brick can be done by just about anyone and will truly revolutionize the thin brick industry.
Speedymason is a full mortar bed thin brick masonry support system specifically designed to install thin brick quickly with ease and affordability. The mortar locks into Speedymason while giving full adhesion to the thin brick. Speedymason is a barrier system with a built-in rain screen when applied over moisture resistant house wrap or fluid applied system. Speedymason is made from a fiber composite that can be installed by any contractor skilled in installing siding and is made to be cut with a saw and applied with a nail or screw gun. Mortar is sprayed on with the Speedymason Spray Hopper and metered with a trowel, press in the bricks, strike the joints and your wall is done in a fraction of the time compared to other products.
Speedymason can be used for interior and exterior thin brick applications. Speedymason is constructed of high grade fiber composite material to provide durability and strength along with water resistant qualities.
