Blaze™ Urethane Grout Haze & General Purpose Cleaner

Bostik Blaze™ Urethane Grout and General Purpose Cleaner is an effective way to clean tile surfaces after installing urethane based grouts. It can be used to remove haze which may remain after urethane grout installation and, in its diluted form, is an excellent routine tile floor cleaner.

While urethane grout is typically easy to clean off the surface of most tiles, some surfaces create challenges that make it necessary to use a chemical-based cleaner to remove residual urethane film or haze. Surfaces that are more difficult to clean that will benefit from the use of Blaze include high gloss surfaces, through-body porcelains and etched/frosted glass.

Blaze is safe to use on ceramic and porcelain tile, natural stone such as marble, granite, limestone, travertine,sandstone, flagstone, masonry, concrete,
metal and glass tile.
