There’s nothing quite like the feeling of a brand new bathroom with modern fittings and fresh clean surfaces.
 
But one thing that can detract from the look of a tidy new bathroom is discoloured grout. Often it takes less than 12 months of use before grout is stained and discoloured, meaning the bathroom quickly loses that fresh, just-renovated feel.
 
To address this problem, Selleys has introduced the White For Life tiling system. Designed with superior water, mould, soap scum and stain resistance at the point of installation, the Selleys White For Life range ensures grout stays brilliant white for longer than ever, with far less ongoing cleaning and maintenance.


 
This comprehensive system features tile adhesive, grout, grout sealer, tile and grout cleaner and silicone sealant that have been designed to stay as brilliant and white as the tiles.
 
The tile adhesive has been formulated using the whitest materials available, and is suitable for both wall and floor tiles. The grout won’t blacken, yellow or stain*, keeping the bathroom looking new for longer.
 
The grout sealer penetrates into the grout to create waterproof and stain-resistant barrier and provides up to 12 months of protection*, twice as long as competing products. And the tile and grout cleaner makes it easier to remove soap scum build-up and leaves a protective water-repellent barrier.
 
Finally, the silicone sealant features a five-year mould resistant guarantee and is guaranteed not to shrink, crack or peel away for 25 years.


The Selleys White For Life system was used when installing a tiled splashback as part of a bathroom renovation.
