    Tile joint fillers significantly impact the beauty of floor and wall tiles. This is also visible in the fast adoption of specialized grouts in different segments like residential, commercial and institutional projects. Specialized grouts not only adds beauty but also has functional benefits like avoiding water seepage, unlevelling of tiles, and tile bends in large slabs.
