Use Neat Cement (OPC Cement) as grout

  • The correct traditional specification for tile joints is using cement with fine sand.
  • Beside effecting functional aspect, using neat cement will also effect the aesthetical aspect

Crack line & Staining

  • Neat OPC cement is rigid material and it is not suitable to be used as a tile joint material .
  • The OPC cement will crack if there is a reversible movement between the tiles.
  • It is not suitable to fill a wider joints as it will crack. 
  • The OPC cement material is very porous material which allow penetration of water & contaminants and will easily stained.
