The space between the tiles is called a “grout joint” and the filler in a grout joint is called “grout”. Tile grout(joint filler) is used to fill in the gaps between tiles and create a uniform look, as well as protect the surface, it will remain visible after the tile installation is complete. It plays an important role not only in improving the overall effect or contrast effect but also in enhancing the wall’s impermeability. For a good tile grouts product, rich and uniform color is the essential requirement, also should have the characteristics of low shrinkage, low porosity, easy operation, high early strength, and so on.
