It is currently in distribution, but you're going to be hard-pressed to find it this early in the game. Eco Prim Grip is no slouch, so I would stick with that for this project. Tile over tile is its...

Aaron, I can’t speak for other sealer manufacturers, but I can tell you that the enhancing/enriching effect is considered permanent with our products. You could try a good sealer and coating stripper...

Matt, as of typing this, I’m not currently aware of any manufacturer out there making a non-scratching epoxy grout. They all seem to have some sort of aggregate in them, ours included.

Hey Don,

Welcome to the forum!

Travertine is a pretty easy to get along with type of stone in regard to sealing. There aren’t many products out there that wont work on travertine.

Agreed! :yeah:


Eco Prim Grip is a ridiculously sticky acrylic resin that was designed to be used over semi-to-nonporous surfaces. So it is right at home bonding to the face of ceramic tile! Once...

Epoxy is the top tier grout choice, but I would make sure those stones are sealed real well. Epoxy grout can have a tendency to discolor light-colored marble. Sealing the pebbles will help in...

Sorry to hear of your troubles, John.
Roberto is correct, Ultracolor Plus FA is not an epoxy. It is a high performance cement-based grout.
I can't tell you how to handle this with your installer,...

I'll third what Kevin said, with the exception of changing the mortar.

Ultraflex LFT will be fine for this application, unless you are in an area subjected to lots of freeze-thaw. In that case, we...

Teddy, Flexcolor 3D (and CQ) use acrylic technology in their makeup, which is not incredibly heat-resistant, and will ultimately lead to softening of the joints. In the case of a steam shower/sauna,...

Hey there Teddy, I'm sorry to see your glass didn't bond well with Adesilex P10.
Those coatings can be a real pain, but adding Keraply will really boost the stickiness of P10. If you mix with...

I don't want to open up a can of worms here, but Planipatch is a moisture sensitive product, so it being wet constantly is not good for the integrity of the product.
