STARLIKE® COLORCRYSTAL EVO By Litokol
Starlike® ColorCrystal Evo is a two-component acid-resistant coloured translucent epoxy grout for grouting all types of vitreous mosaics with joints up to 3 mm. wide
Part A is composed of an epoxy resin mix, based on fine grade glass bead aggregates and organic rheological components. Component B consists of an innovative organic catalyst with lower exposure risks for users. Once mixed together, the two components form a creamy mixture with excellent smoothness, which is also suitable for vertical application with no dripping. Once hardened, the product is high-performing in term of mechanical and chemical resistance.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
While Starlike® Crystal EVO is used exclusively to grout clear or artistic vitreous mosaics, with Starlike® ColorCrystal EVO it is possible, after having identified the best matching
colours, to obtain “tone-on-tone” grouting even in the case of non-transparent mosaic tiles, thus further enhancing the value of the mosaic itself.
The range of Starlike® ColorCrystal EVO colours has been designed to best adapt to a wide range of mosaic tiles.
In the case of traditional substrates such as cement or gypsum-based renders, panelling, etc., the mosaic tiles must be bonded with white adhesives
such as Litoplus K55 (cementitious adhesive in class C2TE) or Litoelastic EVO (two-component reactive adhesive in class R2T) depending on the type of substrate.
Thanks to this characteristic, with Starlike® ColorCrystal EVO it is possible to obtain vitreous mosaic surfaces with highly prestigious effects and a strong visual impact, for example:
● Floor and wall tiles in bathrooms, kitchens, shower boxes, etc.
● Grouting of vitreous mosaics laid on structures and forms developed with extruded polystyrene used in Turkish baths, hammam and health spas;
● Grouting of vitreous mosaics in pools and jacuzzis.
● Grouting of back-painted vitreous mosaics or tiles made from different materials, such as glass and ceramic.
● Development of decorative surfaces such as columns, tables, etc.
In the case of clear vitreous mosaics, it is possible to develop backlit interior walls made of clear substrates in glass or plexiglass. In this case, bonding will be done with a suitable transparent adhesive in tubes.
