Let's discover the amazing world of Grout Color.
What is Grout?
A mortar or paste for filling crevices. Is often used to fill the spaces between tiles or mosaics and to secure tile to its base. Tiling grout comes in sanded, unsanded as well as epoxy varieties. The sanded variety contains finely ground silica sand; unsanded is finer and produces a non-gritty final surface. They are often enhanced with polymers and/or latex. Epoxy grout consists of an epoxy resin and hardener and is highly resistant to stains and chemicals.
How do we see color?
The color of an object depends on both the physics of the object in its environment and the characteristics of the perceiving eye and brain. Physically, objects can be said to have the color of the light leaving their surfaces, which normally depends on the spectrum of the incident illumination and the reflectance properties of the surface, as well as potentially on the angles of illumination and viewing. Some objects not only reflect light, but also transmit light or emit light themselves, which also contributes to the color.
At some point in history...
building product companies decided to add color to the grout. As the ceramic tile production industry grew and added more variety of shapes and colors, it was necessary to get out of the traditional white that we are used to seeing in ancient constructions.
Thanks to these innovative technologies we have different colored grouts that give us a very broad spectrum of the final result of a tile installation process. For our part we want to give a twist to the traditional method of selecting the perfect grout color for a given installation.
