PorcelQuick Grout Backer Rod is used to aid the installation of external porcelain tiles, and is frequently used with the PorcelQuick Adped System. This 6mm rod is suitable for joints 3-4mm wide.
Grout backer rod is a foam cord made from flexible compressible closed cell polyethylene. When using the PorcelQuick Adped pedestal supports, there are gaps between the porcelain paving tiles. The grout backer road acts as a barrier, holding the grout in place during the installation process and keeping it in place during curing. This barrier stops the grout and from escaping through spaces into the void below and keeps your tile joint strong and tidy.
Sold by the linear metre and easily cut to size, these inexpensive foam rods ensure a clean and tidy job and make using porcelain tile supports easy work. A Grout Backer Rod Insertion Tool is required to inlay the rod.
