Spectralock and heat expansion/contraction performance ?

I have some Spectralock left over from my bathroom project, next project is a simple outdoor kitchen with a fridge on the bottom and a gas stove on top. No BBQ, I am a charcoal gal and will likely be buried with my Weber Performer
So, and keep in mind this is Arizona, would I run into any problems with using this in a hot environment? It does reach the frost point here every once in a while too, but the refrigerator would still be pumping out heat from underneath. I just don't want cracking tiles should the environment be too harsh. This would be under a covered patio so no direct water intrusion unless there's mighty winds with the monsoon storms.
Thanks in advance!

Sounds like a question for the Laticrete tech services people, Tracy.

SLP Outdoors

Hi Tracy,


You should have no issues with expansion/contraction with SpectraLock in AZ. As it is an epoxy, it will prove to be more flexible than standard cementitious grouts. And, when cured, SLP is an inert material and will not be affected by the heat of the environment (or your running fridge).


Good luck!
