DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional Introduces Two Cleaners Formulated to Remove the Toughest Problems from Stone and Tile
Heavy Duty Alkaline Cleaner and Epoxy Grout Haze Remover Offer Superior Results
WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 13, 2008 – DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional has introduced two new cleaners specially formulated to remove the toughest problems from ceramic, porcelain and natural stone surfaces.
DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional Heavy Duty Alkaline Cleaner is a water-based professional grade cleaner that removes stubborn grease and dirt on porcelain and ceramic tile, as well as natural stone.
DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional Epoxy Grout Haze Remover easily cleans off epoxy grout haze from newly installed ceramic, porcelain and natural stone surfaces without a strong odor.
“These water-based products set the industry standard for superior performance; they’re extremely effective and easy to use,” said Steve Wolf, general manager – DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional. “Each product has been specifically formulated by scientists who understand how to care for stone, tile and masonry surfaces.”
DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional Heavy Duty Alkaline Cleaner is an economical concentrate for powering through greasy soils and dirt on natural stone, ceramic and porcelain tile floors, countertops and other surfaces. Available in one-gallon containers, the cleaner is diluted at a 1:1 ratio with warm water.
Heavy Duty Alkaline Cleaner can be used on natural stone surfaces including marble, granite, limestone, travertine, slate and sandstone as well as ceramic and porcelain tile and epoxy and cement grout. It also works well on masonry, concrete surfaces, DuPont™ Zodiaq® and other engineered stone, DuPont™ Corian® and other solid surfaces.
“It’s important to use cleaners specially made for natural stone and tile surfaces,” Wolf said. “Many general purpose cleaners contain abrasives, chelating agents, ammonia and bleach that can damage the stone surface and dull the appearance.”
This heavy duty cleaner also can be used to prepare natural stone surfaces for resealing, as the alkaline formula will remove the remaining sealer and dirt on the surface.
DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional Epoxy Grout Haze Remover is a highly effective water-based remover that is safe for ceramic and porcelain tile and a variety of natural stone surfaces including slate, granite and marble. Its viscous formula helps keep the remover in place, giving professionals more controlled contact when working to remove tough epoxy grout haze and coatings. It is easy to apply and works quickly.
"This innovative product delivers the superior performance that you expect from DuPont stone care technology,” Wolf said. “The result is a professional-strength remover featuring a low odor, water-based formula.”
Both of these products, as well as others from DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional, are available from a network of distributors and dealers throughout the United States.
