Why Do You Need Tile Grout?

As an important role in the tile sticking project, tile grout not only plays an important role in improving the overall effect or contrast effect of the tile sticking project but also plays an important role in improving the impermeability of the wall. Tile grout is used as a filler for the joints between tiles once the tile you are installing has been set.

Tile Grout offers a number of valuable benefits:

  • It gives your floor or wall a crisp finished appearance.
  • It helps keep dirt and debris from getting in between and under your tile.
  • It adds rigidity and strength to the tile installation.

Tile grout is typically cement-based. Cementitious grout has cement as its base and comes in powder form. To create the grout, you add water and mix the components. The main components of grouts are white cement, quartz powder, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) or hydroxyethyl methyl cellulose (HEMC), re-dispersible powder (RDP), pigment, and mildew inhibitor. The percentage of each component is 40-55% of white cement, 40-55% of quartz powder, 0.05-0.5% of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) or hydroxyethyl methyl cellulose (HEMC), 0.2-5% of RDP, 0-3% of pigment and 0.2-0.5% of mildew inhibitor.

As a water retention additive. Michem HPMC and HEMC are added to tile grout for better working efficiency. This makes the cementitious tile grout work well and ensures effective bonding with various substrates. As a kind of decorative mortar product, tile grout should also have an excellent operating performance to facilitate the completion of various shapes; good cohesion to ensure the strength of the raised part. Michem HPMC and HEMC are the most suitable raw materials to provide these properties.
