3 Types of Specialty Grouts to Consider for Your Concrete Flooring
One of the most popular types of specialty grouts available for commercial purposes is epoxy. There are further variations available in sanded and non-sanded forms. In addition to these, there are also cement-based group options available for commercial use.
The main advantage of this type of specialty grout is that it doesn’t require sealant. It also prevents the spread of bacteria and other unwanted items. This is a perfect grout to use in commercial spaces, bathrooms, kitchens, and any other area where there is a high probability of water or other liquid spills.
Because this type of special grout is polymer-modified, it is resistant to cracking. This makes it a perfect option for warehouses or any indoor area that sees a lot of heavy machinery use. It can be either sanded cement or non-sanded cement.
Sanded and Non-Sanded Grout
If you opt for a cement grout, you can choose either sanded or non-sanded. The differences between the two are in the name, they are both cement-based grouts, and one contains sand and the other one doesn’t. The choice between the two depends on the types of use that the flooring sees and the actual flooring type.
For example, with a heavy floor, you will want the added strength that a sanded grout provides. If your flooring is comprised of smaller tiles ranging from 1/16th to 1/18th of an inch, a non-sanded option will work well.
Choosing the right grout can make a significant difference in the amount of service and overall upkeep that your commercial flooring will require. It makes sense to take the time to determine which is a good fit for your needs. And don’t forget about your grout sealants too!
