The epoxy mortar in step with the aesthetic evolution of mosaic tiles

The epoxy mortar in step with the aesthetic evolution of mosaic tiles

Starlike® ColorCrystal EVO is the new concept coloured translucent sealant that allows light filtering

In the Starlike® EVO range, the latest innovative result of Litokol research is Starlike® ColorCrystal EVO, a new generation coloured translucent sealant for use alongside Starlike® Crystal EVO.
This new product results from an awareness that the techniques and materials used to produce mosaics are many and offer an infinite variety of surfaces and aesthetic solutions.
Researchers at the Litokol Laboratory have perfected Starlike® ColorCrystal EVO, a new concept coloured translucent sealant that allows light filtering.

Advantages


Perfect for mosaics featuring different shades of the same colour

The 5 available colours (Grey Oslo, Green Capri, Azzurro Taormina, Beige Havana and Pink Kyoto) have been carefully studied to ensure colour consistency with mosaics featuring differing shades of colour, even when the latter are not very transparent or opaque.

Colour consistency even in mosaic tiles made of different materials

Even in the case of back-painted glass or composite mosaics made of different materials such as glass and ceramic, it is possible to obtain grouting that guarantees perfect colour consistency between the joints and tiles.
The final result is one of visual continuity with a strong impact, enhancing the value of any type of mosaic in all residential contexts.

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® EVO achieve the world's most beautiful mosaic pools

For mosaic pool grouting, specialists around the world rely on Starlike® EVO.
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® EVO 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® EVO is the only UV-resistant epoxy sealant available on the market.
Starlike® EVO 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® EVO is safe for users and the environment: the same safety features apply as for normal cementitious products.
Part B of Starlike® EVO (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® EVO products have very low emissions of volatile organic compounds - Class A + according to French Regulations.

No more stains and dirt with Starlike® EVO waterproof grout

Joints are always a critical factor when considering the cleanliness of a tiled surface.
The Starlike® EVO 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® EVO range are certified for direct contact with food.
