Your tiling project is not finished until the grout is applied. In fact, your choice of grout colour can make a big difference to the overall end result. If you choose the right colour grout, it’ll enhance the look of the tiles, but a wrong colour selection can destroy the look of beautiful tiles. (How to choose the grout colour)
Here at TFO, we recommend Davco Sanitized® Colourgrout. The product has been specifically engineered with use on various ceramic and natural stone tiles in mind. As the name suggests, it contains a type of chemical called biocide, which makes them resistant to a variety of bacteria and moulds.
Davco Sanitized® Colourgrout regularly updates its range to meet the changing needs of consumers. The last colour update was in July 2014. It currently offers 22 colour variations which include multiple shades of off-white, beige and grey so you can find just the right colour for your tiles. Davco Sanitized® Colourgrout can be applied in a wide range of areas including indoor floors and walls, bathroom floors and walls, outdoors and even in swimming pools.
Tips on Application
- Get more out of Davco Sanitized® Colourgrout
Mix Grout Cure grout additive prior to application to increase the flexural strength, water resistance, chemical resistance and stain resistance. Alternatively, it would also be an advantage to apply SureSeal Tile and Grout Aerosol Sealer to improve its resistance to water, chemicals and discolouration.
- Protect yourself
Since Davco Sanitized® Colourgrout is a cement based product, it’s alkali in nature, which can cause dermatitis. If you decide to apply it yourself, use PVC gloves or similar protection as well as safety goggles.
You’ll get different grout coverages depending on the size of the tiles and the width of the grout joints. Use the chart below to determine the amount of grout needed for your tiles.
