    I have laid a new floor in my wet-room, tiled with non slip sandpaper surface tiles & I want a shiny gloss grey grout to finish. I don't want to use epoxy as the tiles wont clean properly, & the job will be too hard.

    Can anyone advise me if there is such a grout available??

    Thanks.

    Would a sealer make the grout "Glossy", the only cement based grey grout I can find is standard dull grout.

    there are a few shades of grey available on the market now mate, and adding a grout sealer will improve the sheen on the grout, maybe not to a high gloss finish though, epoxy would be the way to go in my opinion

    I have read about epoxy, the problem is I would have a very hard time getting it off the sandpaper faced tiles.

    JCT, when you say adding grout sealer, do you mean in with the mix, or a coating after grouting.

    sorry reply is late, grout the floor as normal, wash and polish it off then let dry thoroughly, then add the sealer to it, give it maybe 2-3 coats, although some may disagree with me, the more fine coats of sealer you use, the deeper the colour of the grout will come through
