BAL Micromax3 ECO: “performance, control, sustainability”

Retaining all the qualities of BAL Micromax2, the recently launched Micromax3 ECO grout delivers enhanced product performance, improved useability and added eco-benefits.

Available in-store from 6 March, Micromax3 ECO grout provides “everything an installer needs, to easily provide a perfect finish,” the company says. The product is available in 36 colours, with a range of matching silicone sealants.

With longer-lasting and improved Microban antimicrobial protection, providing non-hazardous protection against black mould and mildew, as well as an efflorescence-free formulation and locked-in colour consistency, Micromax3 ECO is designed to provide a long-lasting finish for any tiling project.

The product is OPC-free and sets in 2 to 3 hours for fast-track project completion. The grout is now also suitable for swimming pools and can be used up to 30mm joints widths with no shrinking or cracking, BAL says.

For the development of the updated technology, further improvements were made to provide even greater control for fixers – including easier clean-off, even on textured tiles and less haze after initial clean-off.

Micromax3 ECO is said to be a lower dust formulation relative to conventional, OPC-based grouts – reducing waste and mess for the fixer, as well as being a safer product to use.

The product is reportedly easier to mix and apply, especially on walls with no slumping. BAL says Micromax3 ECO also has improved colour consistency and is suitable for all tile types. The development of rapid-hardening chemistry means the water is maintained within the grout, virtually eliminating the risk of water staining even on natural stone.

The world is changing and that means we must reduce our environmental impact. Produced in recyclable packaging, Micromax3 ECO is manufactured with over 25% recycled materials with no reported loss of performance. The product also achieves EC1 Plus, the highest classification under the EMICODE system. The product is also non-hazardous, with anti-microbial protection.

OPC-free for a reduced carbon footprint, Micromax3 has a 2-year shelf life in 2.5kg and 5kg sizes (with all packaging 100% recyclable) and grouts can be part mixed for multiple uses. This ensures less waste on-site for the fixer, while being better for the environment.

Alex Underwood, head of marketing at BAL said: “The next generation of grouts, BAL Micromax3 ECO provides the leading technology to ensure a new benchmark in grout performance, with guaranteed long-lasting results and added eco-benefits.

“Micromax3 ECO delivers market-leading solutions, with all the benefits of Micromax2 including the use of >25% recycled raw materials; a superior smooth finish, high flexibility and durability time and time again.

“Tilers demanded and we listened, delivering advanced technology with greater useability including easier clean-off and less haze.

“Made in the UK, with 36 colours and a range of matching Micromax Sealants, BAL Micromax3 ECO delivers best-in-class results.”
