LATICRETE Launches Sealer and Cleaner for Quartz, Engineered Stone and Tile Surfaces

March 28, 2018, Bethany, Conn. — LATICRETE, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has introduced STONETECHⓇ Quartz & Porcelain Tile Sealer and STONETECH Quartz & Tile Cleaner to easily maintain the natural look of interior and exterior quartz, engineered stone and tile surfaces. LATICRETE is one of the first companies in the building materials industry to address the growing trend of engineered stone as an alternative to natural stone by offering a complete care and maintenance system for engineered quartz and tile.

STONETECH Quartz & Porcelain Tile Sealer is a premium water-based sealer that acts as a preventive against oil and water-based stains. For daily maintenance, STONETECH Quartz & Tile Cleaner is recommended to gently clean dust, dirt, spills and light stains.

“Engineered stone is increasingly becoming an alternative to natural stone due to marketed benefits of low maintenance. However, not all engineered stone is made the same, so proper care and maintenance cannot be overlooked. STONETECH Quartz & Porcelain Tile Sealer and daily maintenance with STONETECH Quartz & Tile Cleaner can aid in preserving the original appearance,” said LATICRETE Product Manager Diane Phelan.

In addition to protecting engineered quartz, stone and tile surfaces, STONETECH Quartz & Porcelain Tile Sealer can also be used as a pre-grout sealer to prevent potential staining on porcelain tile. This water-based product is low odor, non-flammable and meets state and federal VOC requirements, making it safer for installers to work with and more environmentally friendly than solvent based sealers.

STONETECH Quartz & Tile Cleaner is a premium, water-based solution that is gentle and effective enough to clean and remove light stains without harsh chemicals that can harm or dull the surface. The easy-to-use product gives off a clean, fresh scent and does not require any dilution. After spraying STONETECH Quartz & Tile Cleaner directly on the surface, the mess can be wiped away without the need to rinse with water.

STONETECH Quartz & Porcelain Tile Sealer is available in a 32 oz (946 ml) bottle that can cover up to 225 square feet (20.9 square meters). STONETECH Quartz & Tile Cleaner is available in a 24 fl oz (709 ml) spray bottle.

Neolith Expands Global Production and Accessibility of its Revolutionary Sintered Stone for 2018

Following year-over-year sales growth and product demand, the surfacing brand will begin operations of fourth production line in Spain; open showrooms and logistics warehouse to service key markets 

The largest sintered stone surfacing brand, Neolith, manufactured by Spain-based company TheSize, will continue its global expansion with several key initiatives in 2018—including an added production line, showroom openings, and a new logistics warehouse—aimed to enhance support of the brand’s vast network of distributors, architects, designers and fabricators.

Neolith has changed the residential and commercial architectural design industry in North America and worldwide. Neolith pioneered luxury surfacing with extraordinary characteristics unmatched by natural stone, for countertops, flooring, interior wall cladding, exterior facades and more. Developing a strong position in the marketplace, Neolith is now available in more than 80 countries and has achieved a sales increase of at least 40 percent year-over-year since 2011.

“Neolith’s success can be attributed to the superior resiliency, quality and characteristics of the material itself, but more importantly, to our partners around the globe who share a passion for persistent innovation, service and design,” said Mar Esteve, director of marketing, TheSize. “As we expand in 2018, customer satisfaction and accessibility is more important than ever. We are always looking for new ways to make the Neolith experience an excellent one, for our distributors, designers and their clients, and look forward to building on that this year and beyond.”

New Production Line

Neolith’s steady increase in sales and visibility in high-profile commercial and residential projects has prompted expansion of its production capacity. At its headquarters and manufacturing factory in Castellón, Spain, Neolith will start operating a fourth production line during the first quarter of 2018. This additional line, which will manufacture slabs in 3mm and 6mm thicknesses for furniture, flooring, interior cladding and exterior facades, makes Neolith the only brand to have five kilns exclusively devoted to sintered stone.

Global Showroom Openings

With strategic distribution locations in more than 80 countries and hundreds of major metro showroom sites, Neolith is dedicated to customer accessibility and first-class shopping experiences. In 2018, the brand will celebrate openings of additional showrooms in key cities around the world, including: Madrid, Spain; Tokyo, Japan; and Ramallah, Palestine, with more locations planned throughout Europe, Latin American and Asia in the coming year. The showrooms will demonstrate unique design applications and will allow architects, designers, homeowners and building owners to better experience the versatility and performance characteristics of Neolith over natural stone alternatives.

London Warehouse Opening

In addition to new showrooms, the 2018 opening of a Neolith logistics warehouse in London, England will improve product accessibility and shipping lead times for crucial European markets.  The warehouse’s proximity to shipping ports and to the high concentration of distributors throughout Western Europe provides a logistics advantage over the competition. Carrying a centralized stock of Neolith’s most in-demand SKUs, the London warehouse opening is a strategic expansion designed to open up storage space for distributors and result in faster delivery times for projects.

In 2017, Neolith also opened a warehouse in Norfolk, Virginia to provide the same logistics benefits to the U.S. market and increased project demand, particularly on the East Coast.

With a growing network of distributors across the U.S. and Canada, the product is readily available across North America. For a location near you or to learn more, visit Neolith at www.neolith.com.

About TheSize Surfaces SL
TheSize was founded in 2009 with the objective of expanding and improving the thriving ceramic sector prevalent in the company’s headquarters, Castellón, Spain. The company launched all-natural sintered stone Neolith in 2010, a durable material created through a high-temperature, high-pressure process called sinterization.  For more information on TheSize and its products, please visit www.neolith.com.

DAL-TILE LAUNCHES NEW “WHY TILE” CAMPAIGN ON NATIONAL TILE DAY 2018

 

Dallas, TX – February 23, 2017 – Dal-Tile (parent company of Daltile, Marazzi, and American Olean brands) is officially launching its own “Why Tile” campaign on National Tile Day 2018.  The campaign is designed to complement the Tile Council of North America’s ongoing Why Tile campaign that promotes the use of tile.  The foundational messaging of the Dal-Tile campaign is presented via a “four Ts” message.

“Communicating the reasons why tile is an excellent flooring choice and how tile stacks up against other flooring categories is an important 2018 goal for our brands,” said April Wilson, director of brand marketing for Dal-Tile.  “Along the lines of ‘the four Cs to look for when purchasing a diamond’, we have created ‘the four Ts’ of tile to help in-store sales reps and consumers clearly understand why tile is such a smart choice for flooring.”

“We will feature this messaging in our brands’ POP merchandising, digital endeavors, sales training, and advertising,” said Wilson.  “We want our distributors and retailers to feel equipped to engage in conversations with their customers about the benefits of tile.  During the life of our new campaign, we will educate on why tile ‘Sets the Standard’ for flooring.”

The attributes of tile as presented by Daltile, Marazzi, and American Olean’s campaign are:

Tough — Tile is Tough.  Tile is innately durable and resists decades of heavy traffic.  It is stainproof, scratchproof, waterproof, and fire resistant.

 

Timeless — Tile is Timeless.  Tile offers unlimited color and design selections that transcend styles, as styles come and go.  It also provides a way to seamlessly connect spaces including both indoor and outdoor.

 

Trouble-Free — Tile is Trouble-Free.  Tile is low maintenance and easily cleaned with zero restrictions, and won’t damage from cleaning services.

 

Trustworthy — Tile is Trustworthy.  It’s made from natural materials and returns to natural materials.  It is green certified and completely free of any VOCs, PVCs, phthalates, formaldehyde, and other harmful chemicals.
