Isn’t it necessary to decorate the tile joints?

Tiles and cement mortars have problems with thermal expansion and contraction, so it is necessary to leave joints according to the material and size of the tiles.

Is the grout just white cement?

White cement is the most primitive caulk, the price is low, very white, but it is easy to mold, black, and looks very dirty in the later stage, so it is basically eliminated now.

The grouting agent is based on white cement and other materials are added. The waterproof and stain resistance performance has been improved, and the choice of color is also quite a lot.

This is the birth of the epoxy tile grout, which is waterproof, decorative and practical.
