Keracolor SF is a super fine, high performance cementitious grout, polymer modified, for joints up to 4 mm.

TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Keracolor SF is a blend of cement, fine-grained inert materials, synthetic resins, special admixtures and pigments. Keracolor SF is characterised by its unique rheological behaviour, making it particularly suitable for grouting narrow tile joints. When mixed with water in the proportions recommended and correctly applied, it forms a grouting mortar with the following characteristics: • good compressive and flexural strength and good resistance to freeze/thaw cycles, and therefore optimum durability; • smooth, compact finished surface with a very fine grain structure, with low water absorbency and therefore easy cleaning;

• excellent resistance to abrasion;

• low shrinkage rate, therefore free of cracks and crevices;

• good resistance to acids with pH > 3;

• excellent cost-performance ratio. By mixing Keracolor SF with Fugolastic, a special synthetic resin-based polymeric admixture, its final characteristics are further improved, and it reaches a level of strength that makes it suitable for even the most severe in-service conditions (grouting façades, swimming pools, bathrooms and even floors subject to heavy traffic). Keracolor SF and Fugolastic admix may also be used for grouting joints in marble to be polished after laying. For further information, please refer to the Fugolastic Technical Data Sheet.

Keracolor SF is used for internal and external grouting of floors and finishes in all types of ceramic (single-fired, double-fired, klinker, porcelain, etc.), stone material (natural stone, marble, granite, agglomerates, etc.), and glass and marble mosaic. Some application examples

• Grouting narrow tile joints in all types of tiles on floors and walls in buildings for domestic use.

• Grouting tile joints in glass mosaic and pre-finished marble.

• Grouting joints in finishes with a particularly smooth and shiny surface (polished porcelain, polished marble, etc.).

 

APPLICATION

Preparing the joints
Before grouting the joints, wait until the installation mortar or the adhesive is completely set. Make sure that the waiting times indicated in the Technical Data Sheets
are strictly adhered to. The joints must be clean, free from dust and empty down to at least 2/3 of the thickness of the tiles. Any adhesive or mortar which has seeped into the joints while laying the tiles must be removed whilst still fresh.

With particularly narrow tiles, or in the case of high temperatures or in windy conditions, dampen the joints with clean water.

Preparing the mix
Pour the Keracolor SF into a clean, rustfree container of clean water or Fugolastic (if required for the application) while mixing, at a ratio of 30-33% by weight. Stir the mix, preferably with a low-speed mixer to avoid drawing in air, until a smooth paste is obtained. Let the mix stand for 2-3 minutes, and stir again briefly before use. Use the mix within 2 hours of its preparation.

Application
Fill the joints with the prepared Keracolor SF mix using a special MAPEI trowel or rubber squeegee, without leaving any gaps or steps. Remove any excess of Keracolor SF from the
surface, by moving the trowel or squeegee diagonally across the joints while the mix is still fresh.

LIMITATIONS

• Do not mix Keracolor SF with cement or other products, and never add water once it has started to set.

• Do not blend different grout colours together as there is a risk of colour inconsistency and non-uniform final shade once the grout has set.

• Never mix Keracolor SF with salt-water or dirty water.

• Use the product at a temperature of between +5°C and +35°C.
