High quality, water - resistant, cement - based powder grout designed for grouting ceramic floor tiles, mosaics, quarries etc. Also suitable for use on walls. Not recommended for tiles with metal decor or lustre.Before commencing grouting the adhesive bed must be set. It is essential that the tiles used are appropriate for the service conditions and are fixed in a solid bed of adhesive i.e. ensuring that, as far as possible, no voids are left behind / beneath the tiles. Refer to the relevant product datasheet for setting / drying times. Areas Of Application:
- Dry Areas
- Work Tops
- Swimming Pools
- Heavily Trafficked Floors
- Hygienic Sterile Areas
- Mix the wide joint grout with clean water until a lump-free smooth paste of uniform colour is obtained.
- If an electric drill mixer is used blend on a slow speed (less than 300rpm).
- Avoid entraining air by mixing at too high speed or by over mixing.
- Do not reconstitute the mixed WIDE JOINT GROUT by adding more water, this will reduce the final strength.
- Using a grout float or rubber squeegee compact the wide joint grout into the joints ensuring that they are completely filled.
- Work in small areas and remove as much excess wide joint grout from the tile surface as possible.
- Do not exceed the working time of the wide joint grout. Refer to table for details.
- Use a sponge or sponge-board, dampened with clean water to clean the tile surface.
- Allow about 15 minutes for the wide joint grout to dry a little before cleaning off. Clean diagonally to the joint lines.
- Finally wash down with clean water with sponge/sponge board to remove any dried wide joint grout film from the tile surface.
- Once the wide joint grout has sufficiently set within the joints, polish the tile surface with a clean cloth.
- Alternatively give a final wash down with clean water using a dampened sponge.
- Joints should be free from efflorescence, laitance, dirt and other loose material.
- Remove thoroughly by dry brushing.
- Clean: All joints should be cleaned down by washing with water containing detergent, then with clean water.¿¿¿Ensure the joints are dry before grouting.
- These should be provided in accordance with BS 5385: part 1 - 5 and may be filled with the appropriate flexible sealant.
- Intermediate floor joints should be reinforced with brass or stainless steel.
- Use stainless steel where hygiene is essential.
