All change for leading grout range

BAL, long-established market leader in tiling adhesives and grouts, has unveiled a completely new look for its popular BAL Microcolour grout range.  All 14 vibrant colours are now provided in striking new packaging. The traditional bucket has been replaced with extra-strength, anti-dust polybags, offered in 2.5 kg and 5 kg sizes.

Alex Underwood, BAL brand manager, said: “Inside the great new packaging, fixers will still find their favourite grouts. The formulations are unchanged, so BAL Microcolour remains the UK’s only grout range offering Microban® anti-bacterial protection.  Equally important, it also means that setting takes just five hours instead of the 24 hours required by standard products.”

BAL Microcolour is both water-repellent and efflorescence-free, offers strong bonding with a clean, smooth finish and is ideal for wet areas including power showers. The full colour range is available in both narrow joint and wide joint versions. Alex Underwood explained the benefit of this: “Some manufacturers offer only a single version. Such a grout has to have a formulation closer to a specific wide-joint grout, which does not give the smooth finish required for an attractive appearance, particularly on walls.”

The complete range of new-look BAL Microcolour grouts is available now from authorised distributors nationwide.
