Bostik Develops Blaze™ Urethane Grout Haze Cleaner

Middleton, Mass. (Jan. 20, 2011) — Bostik’s Consumer & Construction (C&C) Division has developed Blaze™, a urethane grout haze cleaner.

Bostik’s Blaze is deigned to remove the haze that can remain after urethane grout installations. In 25% diluted form, Blaze can double as an excellent routine tile floor cleaner.


  • Effectively and efficiently removes urethane grout haze:  Simply wipe away the haze with a sponge as you work;
  • When diluted one part Blaze to three parts warm water, it doubles as a general purpose tile cleaner; and
  • Is compatible with all tile surfaces: ceramic and porcelain tile as well as natural stone such as marble, granite, limestone, travertine, sandstone, flagstone, masonry, concrete, metal and glass tile.

Bostik’s Blaze covers 350 to 400 square feet per 24-ounce spray bottle and 1,600 to 2,100 square feet per 1-gallon bottle (depending on spray pattern and installation conditions).

“Blaze knocks out urethane grout haze — easily, quickly and cost effectively,” says Scott Banda, National Marketing Manager for Bostik’s C&C Division. “This cleaner works everywhere, but in warm or dry climates especially, contractors really need Blaze to knock out the haze.”
