Epoxy paint is a little different than latex paint it has Nepheline Syenite witch is used as a filler when making porcelain tile Amine salt which is a water proofing agent used in grout sealers Ethylene glycol which is used in tile grout Titanium Dioxide which is used in latex motor additive Dipropylene glycol which is used in epoxy grout Alcohols c12-14 also used in grout sealer Dipropylene glycol also used in grout sealer 2-diethylaminoethanol witch is a curing agent found in epoxy grout products. So every single compound found in epoxy driveway paint is also found in grout and grout sealant and epoxy grout. working with so many commercial products gives one vast knowledge of those products.

You should care more about what people think about America especially after your president Obama made us look like idiots if you don't care what people think about America then that is blatantly selfish and a sing of Narcissism.

PS it was actually 2001 so it was almost 17 years ago so yes almost two decades LMFAO
When do you have time to be the "tileking" . Are you serious? You should be a mix design specialist for Laticrete . No way I would experiment like you do in my own house, yet a customers. It's just not worth the risk.

I'm 42. So once again you are wrong.

So again I ask for the manufacturer who has authorized the use of driveway epoxy or latex paints in grout.

Second, why? Just buy epoxy or urethane grout.

And just because they have some of the same ingredients doesn't mean they are the same. They aren't in the same quantities and there are other ingredients. There is zero reason to use a hack solution when manufacturers make products that will fulfill the need.

Why should I care what other countries think of the US? They need to care what we think about them.

Your assumption that I voted for Obama is another error. You just keep showing more and more of your ignorance. MAGA baby!

You said 15, not me. And 17 isn't almost 2 decades. You needed to inflate the number to make it seem more legit. Just say 17 next time, not 15 or 2 decades.

So let's see that website and work. What's your company name again?

Re: Paint Mixed With Tile Grout


Sorry to jump on an old thread, was wondering about this myself.

I don't think this question is bogus. Did you try it? What was the result?

Acrylic and Latex are both polymer type products, correct? So wouldn't mixing them into a sanded grout essentially just make the grout polymer modified. Most of the more expensive water proofing systems currently available are a mixture of grout and latex or acrylic type polymers, no?

As for the warranty being voided, basically sneezing while applying a product seems to void its warranty. So if it waterproofing failure you are concerned about, make sure you have that taken care of in your underlayment. If it is a cracking issue, it seems that adding a polymer to your grout would help prevent it. If it is color fading you are worried about, only time will tell. It seems that people are redoing their bathrooms more frequently than the full lifespan of a product anyhow.

It's bogus because it's rooted in ignorance. Just because they have a product base that uses the same term doesn't mean they are the same.

Acrylic and Latex are both polymer type products, correct? What is polymer? What types of polymers exist? So wouldn't mixing them into a sanded grout essentially just make the grout polymer modified. No, chemically they are not the same, and that is what matters. What in paint would negatively react with the grout?Most of the more expensive water proofing systems currently available are a mixture of grout and latex or acrylic type polymers, no? No. No waterproofer has grout in it. Grout broken down is simply cement and colorant. Why would you think that grout is in waterproofing?

As for the warranty being voided, basically sneezing while applying a product seems to void its warranty. How so? What is your experience with warranties (specifically)? I know for a fact that Ardex, Wedi, Schluter, Mapei will all stand behind their warranties and usually go about and beyond.So if it waterproofing failure you are concerned about, make sure you have that taken care of in your underlayment. If it is a cracking issue, it seems that adding a polymer to your grout would help prevent it. Polymers help in some instances, but cracking is caused by movement. Elliminating the movement is the answer, not a different product (in most cases) If it is color fading you are worried about, only time will tell. It seems that people are redoing their bathrooms more frequently than the full lifespan of a product anyhow.
Most redo their bathroom every 15-25 years. Most of my clients are at the 20-25 year mark, so I disagree with that as well.
