Merkrete, A Parex USA brand, expands its line of industry-leading grout solutions with a high-performance grout. The tile installation systems pioneer exhibited its new ProGrout Plus at Coverings 2023. Visitors will experience firsthand Merkrete’s innovative grout solutions formulated for appeal, usability and durability.  

ProGrout Plus is Merkrete’s new high-performance, fast-setting, dustless grout that delivers hard, durable joints. The color-consistent, efflorescence-free grout is ideal for interior and exterior residential and commercial installations. ProGrout Plus is suitable for dimensional stone, slate, granite, stone agglomerates and most types of ceramic, ceramic mosaic, quarry, brick paver, porcelain, glass and clay tile installations. In addition, the grout will not effloresce and does not require sealing. The new grout is approved for joints ranging from 1⁄16" to 1⁄2" (1.5 to 13 mm) in width, eliminating the need for multiple grout products.

In addition to booth visits, attendees will learn more about ProGrout Plus’ features and benefits at the venue’s Trends and Solutions Stage on opening day. Merkrete National Technical Manager Brett Mauney will provide a first look at the new grout at 1:30 p.m. Attendees will have a chance to ask questions and determine all the ways ProGrout Plus will make their tiling business thrive.

According to Merkrete Director of Sales Todd Boos, ProGrout Plus was borne from the increasing performance needs of the tile industry.  “ProGrout Plus is the latest step in our tile systems’ offering evolution,” said Boos.  “We are excited to have once again delivered an innovative, new product that exceeds the expectations of our customers who demand a high-performance grout that provides bold, durable results without jobsite callbacks.  As always, when the industry speaks, Merkrete listens.”
