Bostik Introduces One-of-a-Kind Dimension™ Reflective, Pre-mixed Urethane Grout

Middleton, Mass. (Jan 20, 2011) — Bostik’s Consumer & Construction (C&C) Division proudly introduces DimensionTM, a reflective, pre-mixed urethane grout unlike any other on the market.

Bostik’s Dimension is a patented, glass-filled, ready-to-use, water-based urethane grout. Dimension contains micro glass beads and a translucent urethane binder that both reflects light and allows light to pass through it and illuminate tiles directly.

Dimension:

 “With Dimension, the cured grout joint looks completely different than anything else out there,” says Rich D’Autilio, Director of Marketing & Sales for Bostik’s C&C Division. “Dimension truly is one-of-a-kind. It’s a grout game changer that provides limitless design possibilities with its 15 translucent, 3-dimensional and reflective colors.”

Dimension’s colors include: Amber, Aquamarine, Aventurine, Bronze, Citrine, Copper, Diamond, Hematite, Jade, Moonstone, Onyx, Opal, Palm Wood, Silver and Topaz. The added design dimension includes the look of specks of diamond, or other precious gems or metals,
in the grout — all enhanced by light.

Bostik’s Dimension is available in 9-pound and 18-pound pails.

“Designers are referring to Dimension as ‘upcale,’ ‘artsy’ and even ‘breathtaking’ — which is absolutely unheard of in the grout world,” notes Scott Banda, National Marketing Manager for Bostik’s C&C Division. “Equally important, contractors love it. Dimension gives contractors an opportunity to upsell — while cutting their grout times by one-third to one-half and leaving their clients with true works of tile art.”
