Why choose epoxy grout for your mosaic installation?

Grout is fundamental to any mosaic installation, and the colour is just as important as the type. It is worth discovering the technical features of the grouts that you plan to use with your Ezarri mosaic.

For starters, there are two broad categories of grout:

  1. Cement grouts.
  2. Epoxy grouts.

The first are a blend of cement, aggregates, resins and pigments. The second are reactive resins. They harden owing to a chemical reaction and usually have components.

The main difference is that epoxy grouts are much more durable than cement grouts and require next to no maintenance. Cement grouts also have to be redone every so often.

Benefits of epoxy grouts

In a swimming pool, the grout is under water, and the highly aggressive chemical products in the pool water are extremely damaging.

Ezarri therefore recommends epoxy grouts. They will require less maintenance, last longer and suffer less deterioration. What’s more, the enormous variety of available colours will help you to emphasise the mosaic aesthetic.

Ezarri always holds a wide variety of epoxy grouts in stock, enabling us to provide a complete service. We can offer an optimal and comprehensive solution to whatever our clients need.

In summary, compared to cement grouts, epoxy grouts are:

  • Highly resistant to chemical products.

  • Resistant to bacteria.

  • Highly adhesive.

  • Highly resistant to moisture.

The Ezarri website provides a complete manual explaining the best way of installing, cleaning and maintaining your mosaic. The document also specifies those characteristics of epoxy grouts which make them the perfect choice for your mosaic project.
