LATICRETE has introduced STONETECHⓇ Epoxy Grout Haze & Coating Stripper for installers seeking a simple, high-performance cleaner that is safe for use on natural stone, masonry and tile. The fast-acting, non-runny gel solution can dissolve epoxy grout haze and coatings such as varnish, lacquer, sealer, wax, paint, polyurethane and acrylic in 10 minutes or less, even if the residue has been present for more than a week.
“Epoxy grout usage has grown in popularity due to superior benefits, such as its durability and stain proof qualities that make it a great choice for tile and stone projects. However, improper epoxy grout clean up can result in epoxy grout haze or residue issues that are extremely difficult to remove. STONETECH Epoxy Grout Haze & Coating Stripper is the solution,” said LATICRETE Product Manager Diane Phelan.
In comparison to other cleaners that can take up to two hours to dissolve residue, STONETECH Epoxy Grout Haze & Coating Stripper offers a significantly reduced dwell time.
This product is ideal for adhering to vertical and horizontal applications and does not contain any harsh solvents or chemicals such as Methylene Chloride, which is commonly found in cleaning solutions. Thanks to its water-based formula, STONETECH Epoxy Grout Haze & Coating Stripper is a safer and more environmentally-friendly alternative to other heavy-duty cleaners.
“Sustainability is an important factor LATICRETE scientists consider when developing new products. Our goal as a company is to continuously improve our products for our community and the world,” added Phelan.
STONETECH Epoxy Grout Haze & Coating Stripper meets U.S. VOC limits set at the federal, state, and local level and is available in 1 gallon (3.79 liter) or 1 quart (.95 liter) bottles.
