Mapei introduces two new grout products

Home News Mapei introduces two new grout products

Deerfield Beach, Fla.—Mapei has introduced two new products that help property owners maintain and update the grout joints in their tile.

Grout Maximizer is a premium latex-based additive for mixing with the company’s Keracolor S Portland-cement-based grout to increase resistance to water and oil-based stains. When added to the grout at the time of installation, Grout Maximizer is easier to apply than epoxy grouts but still provides reduced absorption of water, dirt and spills.

“The fact that the grout in the tile joints will now have reduced absorption gives the consumer increased stain resistance and easier maintenance,” said Brian Pistulka, business manager for Mapei’s Tile & Stone Installation Systems division. Use of this additive does not affect the grout color, and the extra sealing step is no longer necessary. “We anticipate that sales of this product will be built through training and education related to the product’s properties and customer needs,” Pistulka added.

Grout Refresh offers a quick way to freshen up dingy grout lines at a very small cost. This polymer-modified colorant allows the user to change or refresh grout colors and seal the joints at the same time. It is easy to apply and quickly revitalizes the look of an older tile installation.

Grout Refresh is a product that comes in 36 popular colors,” Pistulka said. “We expect it to be a high-volume sale for DIY retailers and flooring dealers to whom our distributors sell.”
