Ultima GroutChino, Calif.— Sika, a global leader in specialty chemicals, strengthened its offerings to the commercial and residential tiling markets with a new, ready-to-use (RTU) grout. SikaTile-Ultima Grout upholds the high quality the company’s tile setting product line while carrying several new features.

The superior-performance grout was developed with the aim to ease installation, give lasting results and eliminate callbacks, according to the company. SikaTile-Ultima Grout achieves these by being:

  • Virtually stainproof without sealing
  • Color consistent
  • Efflorescence free
  • Reusable
  • Mold and mildew resistant
  • Easy to spread and clean

SikaTile-Ultima Grout is used to grout interior and exterior applications, as well as intermittent wet conditions. Colored quartz technology ensures uniform color, stain resistance, easy workability and fast cleanup. Sika said it is ideal for ceramic and natural-stone tiles, glass tile, gauged porcelain tile panels and slabs (GPT/S), luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP). SikaTile-Ultima Grout fills joints 1/16 to 1/2-inch wide, eliminating the need for multiple grout products.

Vladimir Jaksic, Sika national sales manager, said SikaTile-Ultima Grout will be a strong addition the RTU grout market, appealing to customers demanding Sika quality in a fast, reliable product. “There is a growing demand for ready-to-use grouts,” Jaksic said. “They can see the color immediately; it’s easy to apply; it’s great for quick repairs.”

Tom Carroll, Sika senior product manager, said the formula drives the speed and simplicity that contractors need in a grout. “Our customers will have more time flexibility knowing that mixing, significant cleaning and unwanted callbacks won’t need to be factored into grouting projects,” Carroll said. “Instead, they can refocus these energies on additional tile projects.”
