• UltraCare™ Cement Grout Haze Remover awarded “Best in Technology'' at TISE

    MAPEI was awarded "Best in Technology" for its UltraCare Cement Grout Haze Remover as part of the ²Best of TISE Event² awards during The International Surface Event (TISE), which was held in Las Vegas from January 23-25.
     
    MAPEI’s UltraCare Cement Grout Haze Remover is a commercially available, professional-strength product that helps to quickly and effectively remove cement grout haze from tile, concrete and stone surfaces. The water-based formula is low-odor, easy to use and meets all Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) standards for volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
     
    David Mowery, MAPEI’s Business Manager for Color Products and UltraCare, was pleased with the recognition. “MAPEI’s UltraCare Cement Grout Haze Remover is part of our ‘problem-solver’ category. Formation of haze film on tile surface after grouting is common,” Mowery said. “Haze removal and restoration of the tile surface to its natural beauty is successfully completed with this performance product.”
