Just used some of it in the Lab at Custom. Some pretty neat stuff. Worked in well, cleaned up easily. Instantly stain resistive.

I back up what Hammy said, (I was 5' from him). It was a neat product and was stain resistant. I just wish I could have seen some long term times on it rather than the 1 hour of dry time we had.

I am headed out to buy some today in white to make a few mock ups. I know my glass tile vendors will be very interested in this product.

We currently have it for $46 (can still price better for JB members) but it would still have to be shipped.

That's good pricing Daniel. But I still try to buy local when possible. I will be ordering some kerdi band and washers soon.

would that hit $100 by the time it were shipped to canada?
Thats what I was quoted by a local supplier. Ouch.

Ordered a gallon anyhow. (I think its a gallon, never actually checked) I want to try it out.

what gary said about having more hands on time with the product. but was very impressed with the ease of spread, clean up, shelf life, stain resistent properties, and pricing.
all and all i will give it a shoot.
in my experiance at CTU is that they have done some exclusive testing and they back there product.

There are a lot of places in Vancouver and Burnaby that stock Fusion.

I have used it on about 9 projects so far.
There was a small learning curve with clean up but apart from that....

If the colour matches I will recommend it before prism or any other brand

never having to worry about blotchy colour
no mixing
no dust

I could go on,

ok I will.

never having to seal.

I haven't used this product commercially and granted it is a new product
but after visiting the CTU I am pretty confident in this product
And will keep on using it as an upsell to my customers.


I believe that the value of this product in the long run, pays for itself tenfold.

Ive been using kerapoxy for similar reasons, but im sick of working with it.

Im expecting this grout to be similar to work with as the acrylic (i think its acrylic, cant remember for sure) duraceramic grout.
Maybe im way off, but thats what im expecting

Has anyone here used it on marble, got a job coming up if I get it and this seems like the grout to use. Epoxy I don't trust on marble and would use permacolor but Fusion seems like the grout to try on this.

I'm wondering the same thing Jon. I'm working on a marble master bath right now and was planning on using urethane, but after testing this stuff I'd like to give it a try.
