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).
