LAS VEGAS — January 31, 2023 – Merkrete, A Parex USA brand, continues to boost its grout offerings by introducing two new solutions at TISE 2023 in Mandalay Bay Convention Center this week. The tile installation systems leader’s latest upgrades to its grout solution line were formulated for strength and simplicity. Visitors to Booth 5659 will get the first look at the new solutions designed to eliminate unwanted jobsite callbacks.
ProGrout Plus is Merkrete’s new high-performance, fast-setting, dustless grout that delivers hard, durable joints. The color-consistent, efflorescence-free grout is ideal for interior and exterior residential and commercial installations. ProGrout Plus is suitable for dimensional stone, slate, granite, stone agglomerates and most types of ceramic, ceramic mosaic, quarry, brick paver, porcelain, glass and clay tile installations.
Merkrete Elite is a professional-grade, ready-to-use grout designed for commercial and residential installation of porcelain, ceramic and natural-stone tiles, glass tile, gauged porcelain tile panels and slabs (GPTP/S), luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP). It is used to grout interior and exterior applications, as well as intermittent wet conditions such as bathtub, surrounds, shower walls and shower floors. It is formulated with colored quartz technology to ensure color consistency, excellent stain resistance, ease of cleanability and improved workability. In addition, the grout will not effloresce and does not require sealing. Both new grouts are approved for joints ranging from 1⁄16″ to 1⁄2″ (1.5 to 13 mm) in width, eliminating the need for multiple grout products.
According to Merkrete Director of Sales Todd Boos, ProGrout Plus and Elite RTU fill a substantial need for customers who demand optimal results and usability in their grout products. “We are excited to launch these two highly anticipated grouts for our customers and partners,” said Boos. “The team at Merkrete listened to the needs of the market and today we deliver top-of-the line grout materials that will exceed all expectations. We could think of no better venue to present these new grout solutions than this year’s TISE.”
