In a recent case study showcased in Masonry MagazinePermaBASE® Cement Board plays a crucial role in the LATICRETE® Masonry Veneer Installation System (MVIS™).

"PermaBASE Cement Board by National Gypsum was the specified substrate for this project. Compared to traditional lath and scratch, MVIS installs utilizing an approved cement board that can be done up to 35% faster," the article said.

"It is also safer, lighter and easier to handle than the 80-pound bags of unmodified mortar used in a scratch coat, and eliminates the use of lath, which is sharp, difficult to handle, and prone to rusting in wet environments, often leading to failures down the line."
