Deerfield Beach, Florida – MAPEI Corporation recently received six (6) CLEARselect awards from Clear Seas Research. The awards were originally scheduled to be given at The International Surface Event (TISE) 2022, which was held in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 1-3; however, due to COVID-19, they were shipped to our offices instead.
Clear Seas, a market-research company for the flooring industry, surveys the members of the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) every two years. The surveys ask the members for their Preferred Manufacturer in 16 different categories within the industry. The 2022 survey found that MAPEI is the members’ Preferred Manufacturer in the following categories:
• Most preferred brand of organic adhesives (mastics)
• Most preferred brand of single-component grouts
• Most preferred brand of sealers
• Best overall value
• Best product performance
• Best product availability
“We are truly honored by this large number of awards from Clear Seas and the NTCA member contractors and installers,” said Luigi Di Geso, MAPEI Corporation’s President and CEO. “We are especially proud of the Best Product Value, Performance and Availability awards because they truly represent the tightly coordinated teamwork of our Research & Development, Operations and Sales teams during these unprecedented times of shortages and delays.”
MAPEI was founded in Milan, Italy, in 1937 with a philosophy of continual product innovation and attention to excellence.

This strong performance reflects the strength of our products and the commitment of our employees, and I am very honored to accept these awards on behalf of MAPEI Corporation’s employees who have worked to ensure that our
commitment never falters.”
