Saint-Gobain Weber has introduced a new premium tile fixing grout. New weberjoint premium joins a comprehensive range of tile prep-fix-set and joint products that are designed for specifiers and professional tile applicators. The grout offers market-leading benefits and features that will achieve a high-quality finish, beautiful aesthetics and long-lasting performance.
weberjoint premium is a scratch-resistant, extra-flexible tile grout designed for interior and exterior tiling. It is suitable for walls and floors and where some movement or vibration is expected. It can be used with all types of tiles – ceramic, porcelain, mosaic, quarry, natural stone, terrazzo and terracotta. weberjoint premium is also compatible with wooden floors and is recommended for floors with underfloor heating or under-tile warming.
“This excellent, professional-standard grout is water repellent and has the additional advantage of Weber’s new PURE CLEAN anti-stain technology. This unique feature reduces the appearance of patchiness and greatly improves resistance to staining and discolouration,” says Tracey Dempster, head of marketing at Saint-Gobain Weber. “weberjoint premium also benefits from the addition of Mould Stop Technology which offers lasting protection from mould growth making it ideal for use in wet or damp environments.
“But we haven’t introduced this product for the sake of it, rather because our customers said ‘they want it’. weberjoint premium is the result of working with key customers who have completed surveys, interviews, tests and trials and ultimately told us what they really want. And now, with their help, we have a superior grout that our customers will love.”
A cement-based grout, weberjoint premium has rapid-setting qualities of just two hours following application. It is easy to apply and suitable for joint widths of 1 – 20mm. The result is a smooth, durable and efflorescence-resistant finish that stays looking great for longer. The product is available in an extended range of 18 colours with matching silicones. Use them together to achieve a consistent finish and smart aesthetic. The performance and qualities of weberjoint premium are expected to appeal to the specification and building design sector.
weberjoint premium comes in 5kg sacks that each carry 200 Weber Rewards points as part of the popular Weber Rewards loyalty scheme. Register unique codes at: www.loveweber.co.uk.
