Red Suretread 0Q81

Pre-Consumer: 6.0%
Post-Consumer: 0.0%
Manufacturing Plant: Lewisport, KY

Suretread's raised tread pattern prevents grease and water from building up beneath your feet. Its dense, pressed body and low moisture absorption make it durable enough for interior and exterior use and perfect for commercial applications.


  • Special care should be taken when grouting with dark pigmented colors. A grout release is recommended to prevent finely powdered pigments from lodging in the pores of the tile surface.
