1. Flexcolor CQ
MAPEI Flexcolor CQ is a one-component, ready-to-use grout that offers three advantages to installers: ease of application, color consistency, and chemical/stain resistance. It uses an exclusive admixture package using coated quartz aggregate technology for maximum color consistency and chemical/stain resistance.
Styrene acrylic co-polymers and coated quartz aggregate combine to form an advanced, user-friendly single component grout that can be used for various tile installation projects and offers many advantages over traditional Portland cement-based grouts.
Its dense nature helps prevent water-based stains and provides water repellency to the grout surface, as well as providing resistance against mildew and mold growth.
It comes in 26 colors and can be purchased in 1-gallon and 2-gallon plastic pails with the EZ-Store pail design and flip top resealable lid. One gallon covers approximately 100 square feet based on a 12-x-12 tile with an approximate 1/4 grout joint thickness.
