MAPEI Receives Green Squared Certification for Mortar

July 2, 2012

MAPEI recently announced it has received the Tile Council of North America’s (TCNA) Green Squared certification for its first tile and stone installation product, Ultralite Mortar™. As a member of TCNA, MAPEI reportedly committed itself to this sustainability program from its beginning. “We are pleased to be the first installation products manufacturer to have a product certified under this rigorous standard,” said Neil McMurdie, Ph.D., director of Research & Development for MAPEI Americas.

Ultralite mortar is a premium-grade, lightweight, single-component, thin-set mortar for floors and walls that can also be used for medium-bed and non-sag applications. It is a polymer-modified mortar formulated with MAPEI’s Easy Glide Technology™ (for application) and with BioBlock™ (for mold and mildew resistance).
