Laticrete has introduced StoneTech epoxy grout haze and 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 is able to 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, according to the company.

“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 is the solution,” said Diane Phelan, Laticrete product manager.

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 can be found in cleaning solutions. Thanks to its water-based formula, StoneTech is a safer and more environmentally-friendly alternative to other heavy-duty cleaners. It 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.
