When tiling swimming pools, wet areas, or installations that require hygiene protection, an epoxy grout is often the best solution.
ARDEX EG 18 Plus is a new, improved formula, three-part epoxy grout that provides a hygienic, durable, and impervious finish.
Launched first with great acclaim and interest from architects and contractors at SPATEX 2022 – the UK’s dedicated international pool, spa and wellness show which took place recently – ARDEX EG 18 Plus locks the colour within the filler, ensuring improved, longer lasting colour-tones.
It also provides for easier mixing and an easier, smoother application on walls and floors with any tile type including glass mosaics with an epoxy grout float.
Improved rheology ensures the grout holds well in the joints; even on walls. What’s more, ARDEX EG 18 Plus cleans off far easier than other epoxys: installers can just clean off with a good quality emulsifying pad; even on heavily textured, anti-slip tiles.
The easy clean-off can begin from just 15 minutes after application, but with a long clean off time of 45 minutes there is no need for installers to panic or rush as the grout can be removed up to 60 minutes after application.
Ideal for swimming pools, bathrooms, hydrotherapy spas, hospitals, domestic, and food preparation areas, ARDEX EG 18 Plus can withstand full loads after two days of curing.
After seven days it is resistant to aqueous salts, chlorine water, commercial cleaning agents and dilute mineral acids.
Available in White, Bahama Beige, Silver Grey, Grey, and Anthracite it can be used from 2mm to 12mm joints; perfect for any installation or design where a hygienic or water impervious grout is required.
Charlotte Richardson, Chanel Marketing Manager for Tiling at ARDEX, said: “New ARDEX EG 18 Plus provides improved application and clean off for tilers compared to standard epoxies in the market enabling faster project completion.”
“It is recommended for spas, swimming pools, jacuzzis, and areas where hygienic or chemical resistant grout is required, and has been well received by fixers in trial areas.”
