| Our Finishing Products
At Artmar, we always strive toward making our customer’s lives easier and more convenient by offering them comprehensive installation solutions. Not only do we supply a wide range of natural stone products for the home, we also supply all the finishing products needed for the successful installation thereof.
Our finishing products include:
Grout is a very fluid form of concrete that is used to fill gaps and seal joints, such as those left between newly installed tiles, mosaics etc., as well as to firmly secure the installed product to its base, creating a neat, finished look. Typically consisting of sand, cement and water, grout may or may not have a colour tint added to it and forms a waterproof seal once set.
At Artmar, we stock only the best and most compatible finishing products to supply to our customers. Though our years of experience, we have found that, when it comes to natural stone products such as ours, using cemetitious grout produces the best results.
When installing natural stone products, it is essential that one uses an adhesive specifically formulated to secure products created from natural stone.
At Artmar, we help our customers choose the perfect adhesive for the product and job at hand. By doing this, we can warrant that our customer’s products will be optimally fitted and secured, ensuring they receive an extended lifetime from the end product.
Sealants Due to the porous nature of natural stone products, it is essential that the stone be sealed after installation and before use (for example as a countertop or floor tile), lest it absorb harmful liquids or gasses that may damage the stone.
Although very strong, natural stone products are prone to aesthetic damage such as staining due to exposure to certain liquids or gasses, particularly salt and acidic solutions. Luckily, Artmar offers various sealants to help our customers protect their natural stone from damage such as this.
