Custom Building Products advances grout technology
Custom Building Products announces the introduction of Fusion Pro Single Component Grout. Ready-to-use and requiring no mixing, Fusion Pro features a technologically-advanced formula that is easy to spread and clean. This grout solution cures with exceptional hardness, similar to cement grouts, while delivering the superior color consistency and high stain resistance characteristics of epoxy grouts.
Fusion Pro’s patent-pending formula is an advanced acrylic and silicone resin, which give it a creamy, easy-to-spread consistency. It is engineered to provide strong stain and chemical resistance, and does not require sealing. Fusion Pro can be used with virtually all types of tile and natural stone applications that contain grout joints ranging from 1/2-inch down to 1/16-inch. The product will not sag or slump making it ideal for interior and exterior floor, wall and countertop installations.
“With Fusion Pro Single Component Grout, Custom has expanded the boundaries of high-performance grout technology yet again, creating a totally new grout category.
The talented, creative minds of our research and development team have pushed scientific envelopes to develop this patent-pending product that achieves exceptional performance and ease of use. We feel so strongly about this innovation that we have adopted ‘Single Component Grout’ as our own trademark,” said Quenton Roehricht, Product Manager for Custom Building Products.
“Our new technology represents a revolution within the tile and stone industry by offering installers a product that delivers the best of cement-based and two-part epoxy grouts, all in a single-component formula. Fusion Pro performs better, is easier to use, and offers the benefit of epoxy-like performance in a more economical solution. No sealing is required, saving time on the job site. In our research, Fusion Pro’s superior stain, chemical and crack resistance as well as its color uniformity appealed to contractors seeking a high-performance grout.”
Fusion Pro also includes Microban antimicrobial protection. Founded in 1994 by three biomedical engineers, Microban technology is found in a wide range of products including building materials, ceramics and polymers in more than 30 countries. Its patented formula works continuously to inhibit the growth of damaging microbes such as bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause stains, odors and deterioration of a surface or product.
Fusion Pro is available in 24 designer-inspired colors.
