Dave Hamilton, UZIN Tile and Stone product manager, spoke of the company’s further move into this sector with this introduction:

With this first grout range, we are continuing to add to our offering into the tile and stone channel. XtraColor continues our plan to offer exceptional, quality products into the North American tile and stone market.

Hamilton pointed out that XtraColor comes with Uzin’s exclusive Aqua Pearl Effect, which is designed to improve stain resistance, color retention and appearance. XtraColor is also said to clean up exceptionally well, making grout haze removal an easy task.

Additionally, the company says that this new grout has excellent compressive, tensile and flexural strength as well as low shrinkage and water absorption values and great balance between its 2-hour working time and 12-hour-to-foot-traffic time.

UZIN XtraColor Grout is suitable for all types of tile, glass and natural stone in both residential and commercial installations and in interior, exterior, immersion, water saturation and seasonal freeze/thaw environments. Applications include baths and showers, pools, spas, plazas, walkways, radiant floor heating systems (hydronic or electric), and more.
