All grout can stain, even epoxy.
I can vouch for that branty did mine in weber epoxy! Never again
Why did you let Branty do it for you?
Ha ha just noticed....
tilers are 50/50with this stuff the good ones love it the crap ones dont get the jobs. as a shop owner we need to change . this over priced lino and wood floors are talking your jobs we need to move with the times and fugalite is so much better than epoxy and a million times better than cement grout .and anyone that has used kerrakol powder knows they dont make crap stuff
Million times better///
that is a big statement
John... I have no comments to make on the liquid ceramic other than the demos I hve seen have been impressive. However can you message me your mobile number...
its crap until you get used to it .its all about clean water get john to give you a demo but dont ask for foc stuff he is hard a nails and john you are a scoucer
This product contains no epoxy?
It's a hybrid from what I know Danny, kind of a cementitious epoxy....
I know from experience, it stains !
Nothing to do with Kerakoll, but it reminds me - there is a sanded hybrid epoxy I brought back from Egypt, used it on the large "Wave of Creation" mosaic, now sold, it's premixed even, like a coarse sanded tubbed adhesive, soft putty like, you put it on, doesn't look promising, but, admittedly, pretty difficult to stain it once cured. It's just so bloomin' rough, made with desert sand, but is used for so much over there, as grout, adhesive, building all sorts..no smell. Can be mixed with dyes, even acrylic paints for grouts. Feels like dough, looks like dough on the fingers, just really hard to get off. Wouldn't have picked up on the different uses if I hadn't been shown, but here is the product pdf:

How would that compare to, lets say Easypoxy ?
Not sure. Just thought it interesting it seems a grout that says is non epoxy contains epoxy.
That has got to be the most misleading name for any grout
Maybe Easierpoxy might be better.
Not all epoxy's are the same
I had a little go with this last week and I'm using it properly this week.
The word "epoxy" isn't used - they try to push the "liquid ceramic" description although in all honesty it smelt still like the epoxies I'm used to - albeit a LOT less strongly.
The big difference is the liquid component is very thin which makes for a very easy to use grout.
It feels better - smells better - cleans up WAY better with no need for white pads and the sponges clean in cold water, but in my view, it's still an epoxy - albeit a very clever one.
Great colour range too.
And sorry but Easypoxy isn't in this league - nor is anything else in my experience
