Ceramic Trinidad Limited have been the exclusive distributors of MAPEI products for over 15 yrs. CTL has fostered this partnership because of MAPEI’s unrivaled experience, technical service and product quality. CTL also hosts yearly MAPEI seminars for tiling contractors and architects to keep them abreast of the newest technologies available.

Over the past 70+ years, one branch of MAPEI has developed into a worldwide leader in the manufacture of total systems for the installation of floor coverings in commercial and residential construction. Their surface preparation products condition floors and walls for the optimal installation of tile, carpet, wood, vinyl and decorative concrete. Their installation products include mortars, grouts, adhesives and admixtures that ensure customers’ satisfaction with any floor covering they choose. Innovative new products developed by their R&D Department continually keep MAPEI well-positioned in the minds of professional contractors and do-it-yourselfers.

A second branch of MAPEI that has rapidly begun to expand into the American market is their Concrete Restoration Systems. These CRS products help repair damaged concrete in commercial and industrial projects as well as infrastructure settings such as bridges and wastewater systems. These repairs range from the application of waterproofing and corrosion inhibitors to restoration of damaged areas in horizontal, vertical and overhead structural concrete. MAPEI has also developed a special family of self-leveling underlayment and screed mortars to level and smooth interior and exterior construction surfaces.

Throughout all MAPEI’s manufacturing processes for adhesives, sealants and other chemical products for the building industry, they have maintained a strong commitment to the environment and to sustainability. They work continuously to have all of their locations ISO 9001-certified for Quality Management and ISO 14001-certified for Environmental Management. They regularly review product formulations against emerging technology and reformulate when appropriate to produce ever more environmentally friendly products.
