We have been getting a lot of phone calls as to what type of grout you need to use with glass tile. There are 2 different types of cement grout, sanded and unsanded. Which, by their name is self explanatory. Sanded grout has actual sand grains in them which will SCRATCH your glass tile surface. Not saying that it would be totally visible, but when the sunlight or undercounter light shines on the glass tile it will be noticeable. The next type of cement grout is unsanded, which by its name has no sand particles in it and will not scratch the glass tiles.
Also, the specialty grouts like Star Quartz, Star Glass, and Laticrete Spectralock PRO are all perfectly OK to use with Glass Tiles. At this point it becomes a cost question, but the benefits of the specialty grouts outway the costs of traditional cement grouts.
