MAPEI was awarded “Best in Innovation” for its Ultrabond ECO GPT hybrid-polymer-based adhesive for gauged porcelain tile as part of the “Best of TISE Event” awards during The International Surface Event (TISE), held in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center from June 16-18.
“Ultrabond ECO GPT provides a smooth, easy-to-trowel consistency and high transfer, delivering instant grab and holding power while allowing installers to make any necessary adjustments of panels or large-format tiles after placement. It is easy to clean too,” says Brian Pistulka, MAPEI’s Business Manager for Tile & Stone Installation Systems. “When wet, simply wipe it off of the tile with a dry rag. When cured, it can be peeled off. The high bond strength and flexibility for large and heavy tiles, combined with ease of installation and cleanup, provides a real advantage for contractors. They can see the difference in time and labor savings between installations with GPT and traditional mortars. GPT is a real time saver for contractors.”
MAPEI North America’s President and CEO, Luigi Di Geso, was at TISE to accept the award.
“MAPEI is honored to receive this award for our Ultrabond ECO GPT. We always strive to develop innovative products that help contractors work more effectively and more efficiently. This hybrid adhesive allows them to do just that,” says Di Geso.
An annual event to recognize the innovation and excellence of exhibiting companies, the “Best of TISE Event” awards are given to companies whose products are deemed to be “best” in their class by a panel of judges appointed by the sponsoring publications.
