Epoxy grout is an extremely hard wearing grout. It has grown in popularity for high specification jobs that demand greater reliability. This is because epoxy resin is easy to maintain and clean, and can be used in almost all tile applications.
Regular grout is highly porous in nature and easily absorbs grease and dirt. Epoxy grout is non-porous, and so doesn’t absorb any contaminant. This makes it almost completely stain proof. It also means epoxy grout is very easy to clean, requiring just the removal of grime and dirt.
Epoxy grout also has an advantage in that it doesn’t need sealing like regular grout does. As epoxy isn’t porous, there’s no need to seal it.
Compared to standard grout, epoxy grout is much more hard wearing. It is a two-part grout used mainly in food preparation areas or industrial environments that are prone to chemicals. Epoxy grout is acid resistant and can be safely used in swimming pools, kitchens, labs and anywhere hygiene is essential.
