Sanded grout is generally a fluid with high density, which is generally used in the reinforcement of structures. Sanded grout contains silica sand, chemicals and inorganic aggregates. It is basically a cement-based polymer that resists cracking, shrinking and wear and tear. Sanded grout can be used in the joints of exterior and interior installations, such as walls, floors, ceilings, countertop, showers, pools and fountains. Based on the size of the sand used, Sanded grout is generally of two types. Sanded grout using fine sand is called finely sanded grout. Finely sanded grout is used in gaps ranging from 3 mm to 9 mm approximately. The quarry type sanded grout is another type that consists of coarser particles of sand and is used in gaps ranging from 9 mm to 13 mm approximately.
