Mapei UltraCare: “The complete protection & maintenance solution”

A good protection and maintenance regime ensures that a tiled surface retains its natural aesthetic and performance characteristics.

To simplify each step and ensure that every type of material and finish is correctly maintained, Mapei has developed the UltraCare range of cleaners and protectors. Formulated in the company’s research laboratories for professional and end-user application, the range provides a solution from installation right to the protection and maintenance of surfaces in private, commercial and industrial settings.

Treatments are formulated for all types of natural and engineered stone and tile finishes, laid indoors and outside – from polished marble to external grade porcelain.

UltraCare cleaners are tailored to a tile’s individual characteristics – whether it’s acid sensitive, acid resistant, polished or unpolished. Each formulation provides a safe and easy-to-use solution for the most diverse sites, the company says, from installations to the renovation of existing surfaces.

For acid-resistant natural stone and tiles, UltraCare Acid Cleaner and UltraCare Keranet are appropriate choices for a builders clean and stain removal. Both safely remove fixing residue including cementitious grout, organic dirt, salt, limescale and efflorescence. The “buffered” formulations do not emit fumes, Mapei says, so they are safe for the applicator, the environment and will not cause damage to stainless steel and aluminium profiles. The range also includes UltraCare Keranet Easy ready-to-use spray, which can be used as soon as grout becomes opaque, resulting in significant time saving for the applicator.

To deep clean unpolished natural stone before it’s sealed, the range includes UltraCare HD Cleaner – an alkaline formulation designed to break down organic dirt. The cleaner can also be used in renovation projects, to restore a stone floor’s slip rating as well as its aesthetic. Outdoors, it also tackles the removal of moss and algae and works as a remover for water-based and metalised waxes.

To deep clean polished stone – and for everyday tile cleaning – the range includes the ready-to-use UltraCare Multicleaner. The concentrated pH-neutral spray cleaner can reportedly be used on all types of wall and floor tiles, indoors and outdoors, giving a thorough clean without rinsing. To deep clean and remove dirt and grout residue, a lower dilution is used and the surface is rinsed after application.

In addition to the UltraCare Cleaning products, treatments joining the range include Grout Cleaner, a ready to use concentrated spray cleaner for epoxy and cementitious grout joints between unpolished tiles as well as Mould Remover, a mould and algae remover and tile “hygieniser,” designed for all surfaces. The range also includes UltraCare Smooth Silicone: a smoothing product for finishing sealants, with mould resistance properties. Formulated to work with the BioBlock in Mapesil silicone sealant, and to protect and enhance its function. Commonly used soaps/washing up liquids and window sprays contain products which affect this function and also leave a visible residue. Smooth Silicone is aimed to create a pristine, residue-free finish.

The company’s water-based treatments Include UltraCare Anti-Mould protector, a mould-resistant water-based protector for all types of tile, as well as Intensifier W, a high penetration colour enhancer and protector. UltraCare Stain Protector W is an impregnator providing protection and anti-stain properties, with a natural effect for unpolished surfaces. This product is available in a “Plus” variant, suitable for use on all finishes of natural stone, terrazzo, agglomerates, brick, terracotta and polished porcelain.

UltraCare Grout Release is designed for application on porous material to protect against grout ingress and staining, and textured porcelain, where it acts as a sacrificial surface protector that promotes quick and easy removal of grout and installation residues. The range’s Grout Protector is an impregnator for use on cementitious grouts.

The company also offers Fuga Fresca Grout Refresh, a grout refresher designed to rejuvenate the colour of cementitious grout joints in floors and walls.

The range also includes two solvent-based treatments: Ultracare Intensifier S, a high penetration colour enhancer and protector, as well as Stain Protector S, an impregnator which provides protection and anti-stain properties, with a natural effect.
