New Tec InColor Grout (formerly TecniColor)

Here is an article I came across Today. On more NEW grout.

My head overloaded on all these new grouts.

I see it will be available in June. Just preordered 2 pails of Light smoke to try.

I saw the live demonstration session for this at Coverings. It surely looks interesting. Rated for swimming pools too.

Impressed with first try.

We used this new Tec Tecnicolor today on a shower surround regrout job. The color was light buff.

Consistency was perfect.

Grouted a shower surround in 2 hours.

Going back tomorrow to look over project and check for haze.

This first try has been a great experience.

Brad I just got a couple buckets to try on a friends rent house ( good for a test) but just wondered how it compares ,as far as clean up , to Tru Color , Fusion , or Spectralock?

I hate to say it but it cleans up and goes up better than quartzlock. But keep in mind we used it only on this one shower surround so far.

I don't know that it's urethane. It had a very slight odor to it, kind of reminded me of latex paint odor.

Here's from the Tecspecialty.com Tecnicolor page:

Grouted 800 sq.ft of 20x20 today with light buff. Was great to work with and good coverage. No haze to clean.

Ordered 28 pails delorean grey to try on a GM dealership phase 2 towards the end of the month.
