The most popular vertical carving mix in the marketplace.
Tru-Pac X is a high-performance vertical carving mix product that will allow you great versatility in your decorative needs. Unlike other vertical carving mixes that are unreliable when used for thin applications (under 1/2 inch), Tru-Pac X is designed for that challenge. The usable application thickness can range anywhere from under 1/4 inch (see pic) to 5 inches on a properly prepared surface. Now you can have one mix that can handle anything from heavy stone carving down to plaster-coat treatments. By combining one Tru-Pac X decorative mortar conversion kit with one 80 lb bag of Type S mortar mix (found in home improvement stores everywhere), you get a 100 lb batch of mix for the same cost or less as typical 50 bag mixes.
Why is Tru-Pac X so popular? Easy. Tru-Pac X is the strongest mix. It provides the biggest range of use AND is the most economical. Tru-Pac’s popularity has resulted in other manufacturers being forced to release their own ad pacs to compete but they always fall short.
TPX has found its way on vertical surfaces all over the world and is your go-to solution for reliable vertical carving mixes. From amusement parks like Disney and Universal Studios to a countertop in your neighbor’s backyard kitchen, TPX is the best choice.
