UltraCare products join Zero Line

21 March 2024

SEVEN TREATMENTS from the UltraCare range have joined Mapei UK’s Zero Line – a range of low environmental impact products.

They include six UltraCare surface maintenance products and UltraCare Smooth Silicone. The extended portfolio, which also includes installation and building products, provides safe and sustainable high-performance solutions with CO2 fully offset in the entire life cycle. 

CO2 emissions - measured throughout the life cycle of products from the Zero line in 2023 using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology, verified and certified with EPDs - have been offset through the acquisition of certified carbon credits in support of renewable energy and forestry protection projects. The portfolio demonstrates Mapei’s commitment to the planet, to people and to biodiversity. 

Formulated in the Mapei Research Laboratories, and designed for professional and end-user application, Mapei’s UltraCare series provides a solution from installation, to the protection and maintenance of surfaces in private and commercial settings.  Treatments are formulated for all types of natural and engineered stone and tile finishes and are tailored to a tile’s finish and individual characteristics.  The new Zero Line products include:

UltraCare Multicleaner - a concentrated pH-neutral solution for everyday cleaning.

UltraCare HD Cleaner - an intensive alkaline treatment for deep cleaning and restoration.

UltraCare Keranet - a concentrated ‘buffered’ acid cleaner.

UltraCare Acid Cleaner – a concentrated ‘buffered’ acid cleaner.

UltraCare Kerapoxy Cleaner - a ready-to-use solution for the removal of epoxy residue after grouting.

UltraCare Grout Cleaner - a ready-to-use concentrated alkaline cleaner for cementitious and epoxy grouts.

UltraCare Smooth Silicone – a smoothing product for finishing sealants. 

Mapei Zero Line also includes UltraColor Plus – Mapei’s signature anti-efflorescence, quick-setting and drying polymer-modified grout, cementitous mortars and pre-blended grout.
