Urethane vs Epoxy grout in a commercial kitchen please help

4472 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  smeagol
I recently took on a nightmare project started by someone else. Not going to get into details other than ceg-lite was used in a commercial kitchen and it's a mess. I have about 800 Sq ft to do in a storage and pantry area and 1000 Sq ft to clean. Black ceg was used and I would like to finish the project with something much easier to work with. The floors are uneven and the tiles old and cracked. Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

CEG has got to be one of the worse epoxy systems on the market today. I'll take Spectralock or Opticolor any day over that. Spectralock has a full commercial system that works just as easy as the residential version.

Urethane doesn't meet the standard for commercial kitchens. Laticrete would rather you use Latapoxy than Spectralock in that application too.

I use Spectralock 2000 IG for this application. The other thing I will add is you may want to degrease the tiles, clean tile makes epoxy regrouting much easier.
Here's Laticrete's selection chart:

ceg lite is the worst product i have ever used. Those DIY ers buying it at Home Depot are in for a hazing:no:
