New High Performance Premium Grout Offers Color Consistency and More

Anaheim, CA — Parex USA, Inc., the parent company of leading building material brands; Merkrete, Parex, Teifs, LaHabra and El Rey, announced the launch of Merkrete ProGrout, a premium performance grout.

ProGrout is a “high performance” premium, fast setting, polymer-modified, color consistent and efflorescence free grout. It has been specifically formulated for grouting all types of ceramic and dimensional stone tiles on walls and floors when grout joint widths are 1/16’’ to 1/2” wide. ProGrout eliminates the need for sanded and non-sanded grouts.

Advantages of ProGrout include:

·        Color Consistency
·        Non-Efflorescence
·        Fast Setting
·        No Shading
·        No Blotchiness

“ProGrout is our high end solution for all types of grouting projects,” said Luciano Tavares, Brand Manager for Merkrete. “Color consistency all the way through the joints had been a concern for our end users, so we designed ProGrout with this in mind.”

Now, with the addition of ProGrout, Merkrete brings customers a full range of solutions such as Versatile, Epoxies and Caulking to the market.

For over forty years, Merkrete has been dedicated to providing architects, contractors and building owners with the most uniquely diversified and innovative product line in the industry.
