STERI-GROUT is suitable for use in areas of limited movement/ vibration, so ideal for use over timber ply-boards and heated subfloors. Recommended for sanitary installations, i.e. kitchens, bathrooms, power showers, toilets and shower rooms. This grout has excellent adhesion characteristics to porcelain and fully vitrified tiles, has low permeability and reduced dirt pick up. Containing a strong fungicide, it will also inhibit black spot mould growth. Can be used in interior and exterior locations.
Check that all the tiles are securely fixed and that the tile adhesive has thoroughly dried before applying any load or pressure to the tiled surface. Allow adhesive to set sufficiently before applying grout. Ensure joints are clean, dry and free from dust and obstructions. Use only in joints from 1mm-20mm wide. It is recommended that current best practice, e.g. current TTA or COP guidelines, are always followed.
STERI-GROUT powder should be added to clean water. Mix the powder with clean water (approx. 750ml: 3Kg bag) to a thick, creamy paste by either hand or slow speed mixing drill and paddle. When mixing by hand, allow the mixed grout to stand for a few minutes, then remix to ensure an even consistency. Do not mix more than can be used in a 30-60 minute period. Part used grout should never be “freshened up” by adding more water. Discard any grout once it appears to lose workability.
Using a grouting tool, sponge or squeegee, work the mixed grout thoroughly into dry tile joints ensuring the joints are completely filled. Remove excess grout from the face of tiles with a damp sponge or cloth. Use a suitable tool to compact the grout into joints. After initial hardening of the grout, clean the tile surface using a clean, dampened sponge working diagonally across the grout lines. Once the grout is set, polish the tiles with a soft cloth. Protect from damp for 24 hours after grouting. Clean tools after use with warm water. Mechanical means may be necessary when product has set.
Open time of the exposed adhesive bed is approx. 20 minutes, depending on conditions. Pot life approx. 30-60 minutes @ 20o C.
Final set will occur between 12-24 hours. Cement based products will take longer to harden and set at lower temperatures and should not be used below 5o C. Lightfoot traffic: after 12 hours; Full traffic: after 24-48 hours (dependant on site conditions).
Slight colour variation may occur between batches. Colour variation will occur under different mixing and/or site conditions. Any cement film should be removed as soon as possible with an acid based cleaner. Always pre-wet joints when using an acid based cleaner. When grouting textured and slip-resistant tiles, ensure grout residue is thoroughly cleaned off before it has set. Please note: Certain tiles may suffer from discolouration or scratching when using grouts. We would recommend that a test application be carried out prior to grouting. Our grouts go through stringent checks to ensure quality and colour. However, we suggest a trial area to ensure colour is consistent and as expected due to the use of raw materials.
