Investigation of Key Raw Materials and their Impact upon Ready-to-Use (RTU) Grout Properties

Grout and tile grout are not the same material. Grout is a specific type of construction material used typically in filling in void areas around large scale construction like bridges and building foundations.1 This type of grout is formulated to flow and fill-in areas between structural components, and it is typically made of a fast-curing, high-strength flowable cementitious formulation. Tile grout is the material applied between tiles in nearly all tile applications. In this paper, when the term grout is used it will explicitly refer to tile grout.
