GROUTING

After 24 hours from complete installation of tiles, apply Eurotiles Superior Tile Grout according to the instruction found in the packaging:

  1. Pour Eurotiles Superior Tile Grout powder into a clean plastic container. Slowly add water, stirring continually until thick paste. Allow to stand for 10 minutes, stir again and use within an hour. Do not use salty or brackish water.

  2. Apply the grout mixture diagonally across the tile joints, applying enough pressure, and eliminating trapped air. Rub the exposed surface to make even. Let stand for five (5) minutes.

  3. Wipe off excess grout with a damp sponge or clean cloth using the same diagonal strokes until grout is completely leveled with the tiles.

  4. Wring out as much water as possible from the cleaned sponge or cloth and tool the filled joints by lightly running the sponge along the tile grout lines.

  5. Smooth the grout with a clean, soft and dry cloth, wiping off any remaining residue.

  6. Protect the grouted areas by placing barriers or covering for at least 24 hours before resuming normal activities in the area.

 

PLEASE NOTE

Do not apply at temperature above 38 C and under exposure to strong wind and sunlight.

 

The open time reduces with absorbent substrate.

 

Clean tools with water immediately after use; once the product has cured it can only be removed by mechanical means.

 

SAFETY

Eurotiles Superior Grout contains cement. Cement is irritating to skin. Contact with moisture sets off an alkaline reaction which may cause skin irritation and/or caustic burns to mucous membranes (e.g. eyes). Risk of serious damage to eyes.

 

Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wear suitable protective gloves and eye/face protection. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. After contact with skin, take off immediately all contaminated clothing and wash immediately with plenty of water and soap. Keep out of the reach of children. If swallowed, seek medical advice and show container or label. Product is low in chromates.
