  2. 2. What is Fusion Pro™ Single Component Grout™ ? A patent-pending breakthrough in grout technology that delivers the best attributes of cement and epoxy grouts. • Exceptional color consistency. • Superior stain resistance that exceeds the performance of many epoxy grouts. No sealing is required. • Handling and cleaning easier than epoxy grouts • A durable, ready to use formula that is crack resistant and approved for interior and exterior applications.
  3. 3. Is it Cement? Epoxy? Urethane? Fusion Pro™ is an advanced acrylic plus silicone resin.
  4. 4. Different than a Pre-mixed Grout Fusion Pro™ Single Component Grout does not have any of the negative features associated with traditional premix grouts: • No soft grout joints • No short open time/stickiness • Much higher level of water resistance We are trademarking the term “Single Component Grout” to highlight the superior performance of Fusion Pro™ over traditional premixed grouts.

  10. 10. Unique Installation Attributes • Work directly from the pail. No mixing required. • Unlike other grouts: Cleaning can begin immediately. • Unlike other grouts: To extend working time or recover drying Fusion Pro™ grout, rewet surface with a moderately damp grout sponge. “When in doubt…wet it out!” • Accepts light traffic in 24 hours.* • Accepts heavy foot traffic in three days.* *Will vary with temperature, humidity and grout joint width. On-site mock up recommended.
  11. 11. Sealing After Tile & Grout Installation • Fusion Pro™grout’s unparalleled stain resistance means it does not need to be sealed • If sealing of the tile after the installation of Fusion Pro™ is required, allow seven days for Fusion Pro™ to cure prior to the application of any sealer • Sealers manufactured by Custom Building Products have been tested for compatibility and are the only sealers recommended
  12. 12. Cost Comparison • ANSI 118.3 Epoxy Grouts - $1.10 to $1.35/sqft + a premium for installation, $1.00 -$2.00/sqft • ANSI 118.6 Cement Grouts - $.08 to $.12/sqft • ANSI 118.7 Hi Performance Cement Grouts - $.15 to $.25/sqft • Fusion Pro - $.4o to $.45/sqft
  13. 13. Architectural Specification • To include Fusion Pro in an Architectal Specification, the following statement is added to the grouting material section of the specification: Chemical Resistant, Water-Cleanable Tile Setting and Grouting Epoxy; ANSI A118.3: Custom Building Products Fusion Pro Single Component, High Performance Grout. Meeting the performance requirement of ANSI A118.3 and A118.7. No mixing required and is stain resistant.
