The translucent sealant for artistic
and glass mosaic grouting

The translucent sealant for artistic
and glass mosaic grouting

The translucent sealant for artistic
and glass mosaic grouting

Two-component acid-resistant translucent epoxy grout for clear and artistic glass mosaics with joints up to 2 mm wide

Part A is composed of an epoxy resin mix, based on fine grade glass bead aggregates and organic rheological components. Part B is composed of a mix of amine hardeners.
When applied to grouting, the special translucent colouring of Starlike® Crystal allows it to “absorb” the colour of the clear glass tiles, which therefore alter its appearance.

Best results are obtained when the mosaic is applied to transparent substrates such as glass and plexiglass, which may eventually be backlit by a light source. In this case, the mosaic must be glued using an appropriate clear adhesive cartridge.

Advantages


Grouting assumes a colour when exposed to light

The translucent epoxy grout allows the colour of the clear glass tiles to be “absorbed” and thus changes depending on their colour.

Perfect for mosaic artists

The translucent grouting has a neutral tone that highlights the colour of artistic mosaics, without interfering with the composition.

Quick to apply and easy to clean

Sealant based on very fine grade glass bead aggregates for a smooth application that’s easy to clean.

Beauty and strength in all residential contexts

For indoor and outdoor wall and floor ceramic and mosaic tile laying and grouting.

With Starlike®, achieve the world's most beautiful mosaic pools

For mosaic pool grouting, specialists around the world rely on Starlike®.
For these particular applications, Litokol offers its wealth of experience backed by customised testing and research into suitable solutions in relation to the different materials.

A barrier against UV rays to protect grouting from yellowing

Starlike®  protects the colours of grouting from yellowing caused by sunlight, in all areas of the planet.
As demonstrated by tests conducted in collaboration with the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Starlike® is the only UV-resistant epoxy sealant available on the market.
Starlike® even protects the colour stability of grouting in the most extreme climatic and atmospheric conditions.

Safe for users due to its non-corrosive nature

Starlike® is safe for users and the environment: the same safety features apply as for normal cementitious products. 
Part B of Starlike® (catalyst) is non-corrosive, unlike other products commonly sold on the market.

Safe for housing as it has very low VOC emissions

Many products and materials in residential buildings contain VOCs (volatile organic compounds) which may be released over time.
Starlike products® have very low emissions of volatile organic compounds - Class A + according to French Regulations.

No more stains and dirt with Starlike® waterproof grout

Joints are always a critical factor when considering the cleanliness of a tiled surface.
The Starlike® range is completely waterproof and makes the grouting surface stain-proof and easy to wash using standard detergents commonly sold on the market.

The benefits of easy-to-clean grouting that doesn't absorb liquids or stains

The absorbent nature of cementitious grouting is a significant factor when it comes to the cleanliness of tiled surfaces: it is therefore likely to deteriorate for the following reasons:

  • accumulation of dirt that leads to the spread of bacteria and the development of mould
  • discolouration and chromatic variations, efflorescence

These processes of degradation become more evident in humid and steamy environments such as bathrooms and kitchens.
Unlike cementitious grout, epoxy grouting is bacteriostatic, it does not absorb liquids and dirt and can therefore be easily washed, while also preventing the spread of mould and fungi, ensuring totally hygienic grouting.

Excellent chemical resistance

Suitable for contact with food

All products in the Starlike® range are certified for direct contact with food.
