TEC® How to Properly Select Grout Video

Grout technologies have advanced extensively in the past years to offer a variety of grouts to meet the needs of various installation requirements. It is important to understand the difference between the grouts available. Not choosing the correct grout may result in installation failure. Having basic knowledge about the different types of grouts is critical to meeting the needs of a specific job and to prevent any rework.

This video, created in collaboration with NTCA, gives you an overview of the four main grout technologies available and when to use them:

  • Cement Grout: Cement Grout comes as Sanded Grout or Unsanded Grout and is used for most residential and commercial applications.
  • Advanced Performance Modified Grout: This is a cement-based Grout that provides many of the benefits of epoxy grouts with the easy application and clean-up of traditional cement-based grouts. Performs best in demanding environments such as high traffic and wet conditions.
  • Epoxy Grout: Harsh acids and cleaners used in heavy commercial environments call for Epoxy Grout.
  • Premixed Grout: Single Component Grout is best for residential countertops and backsplashes, kitchens and bathroom walls & floors and even exterior or commercial applications.
