Amber Maroochydore show the wide range of tile grout colours

Decisions, decisions - so many exciting LATICRETE
 tile grout colours to chose from!

Finding tile grout that will withstand time, wear, and the elements, has been a challenge confronted by installers, designers and builders for decades. Thanks to the dedication and ingenuity of the experts at LATICRETE, tile grout offers product features previously only dreamed of for commercial and home owner/do-it-yourself installations.

LATICRETE tile grout is available in a variety of convenient packaging configurations to accommodate the smallest to the largest installation. When it comes to tile grout, LATICRETE has the products that remain unmatched industry-wide and many formulations within the LATICRETE tile grout family meet ANSI A118.3, ANSI A118.6, or ANSI A118.7.

Tile grout that installs with ease…tile grout that is simple to clean…tile grout that maintains a beautiful and durable finish, the answer is clear - LATICRETE tile grout sets the new standard for both homeowners and professionals. For more information click here
