Three from Mapei

Mapei has released new products for patching, grouting and leveling jobs.

Tri-Patch is a versatile concrete patching compound that allows users to patch, skim-coat, level, ramp and color embossed surfaces by simply varying the water-to-powder ratio. The material can be used for filling holes and cracks up to 1 inch per lift. When mixed with a smaller amount of water, Tri-Patch can be applied in higher builds for ramping up to 4 inches. Mix the material with Mapei Patch Enhancer to use it as a leveler. Tri-Patch is fast-setting, has high compressive strength and is shrinkagefree.

Ultraplan Easy is billed as the easiest- to-use underlayment on the market: Just clean, prime with a Mapei primer and pour. Developed with proprietary High-hydrated Cement Technology formulation, the quick-setting material develops high compressive strength and abrasion resistance in hours. The selfsmoothing underlayment allows light foot traffic within 2 or 3 hours, and it is compatible with a wide variety of coatings. It can be applied from feather-edge to 2 inches per lift.

Opticolor Stain-Free Grout takes advantage of advanced water-modified, resin-based technology. It can be applied with the ease of portland-based grout and without the challenges. It offers long-term performance without the slumping, shading, staining and cleaning challenges of other grouts, and it comes in 36 colors. Opticolor Stain- Free can be applied in joint widths of 1/16 inch to 3/8 inch and boasts impressive nonsag properties. The grout’s built-in chemical resistance stands up to everyday cleaning products as well as foods and beverages, while its BioBlock technology resists mold, mildew and bacteria.
