MIXING: Use approximately 200 ml of Acemix Grout Admix for 1 kg of Acegrout coarse series grout powder. Place Acemix Grout Admix in a clean mixing container and add grout powder slowly. Mix by hand or with a slow speed mixer to a smooth stiff consistency. Allow to slake for 5-10 minutes and remix.
APPLICATION: Dampen tile surface with water. Spread with a sharp, firm rubber grout float. Work the grout paste into the joints until completely filled. Use diagonal strokes to pack the joints. Ensure that joint is filled and grout is not just sitting on top (i.e. “bridging the joint”). Remove excess grout by holding grout float at 70° to 90° angle and pulling the float diagonally across the grout joints. Removing as much material as possible will make final cleaning easier. Allow joint to set for approximately 120-180 minutes or until they begin to firm. Time will vary depending upon substrate and ambient temperature.
CLEANING: Apply liberal amount of clean, cool water to the grouted area. Adding a few drops of dishwashing liquid to the water will aid in clean up. Using a soft sponge, work in a circular motion to loosen grout film and finish joints smoothly. If necessary add more water to aid cleaning. Clean film from tile with a damp cotton towel and clean water. Change rinsed water frequently to aid cleanup and minimize grout residue left behind. Fingertip can be used to smoothen the joints but care to be taken because flush joint may not get while fingering over grouted joints. Final cleaning can be done on similar way after 24 hrs of first cleaning or after the grouts sets firmly. Time will vary depending upon substrate and ambient temperature. Do not do final cleaning before the grout joints sets firmly.
PROTECTION: Generally, light foot traffic can be allowed in 24 hours at 25°C, normal foot traffic in 36 hours and heavy foot traffic in 72 hours. Grouted area should be kept dry and protected from exposure to dust, dirt, food or other chemicals, that could stain or attack the grout and spoil the colour.
Protect grouted are from contamination until it is fully cured. Avoid contact with eyes or skin. In case of contact, clean with plenty of water and seek medical attention. Use personal protective instruments such as gloves, goggles, aprons, masks, etc while handling the product and application of same.
Curing time is affected by ambient, surface temperatures and humidity.
