Grouting Mortar (1-6 mm)
Cement based grout for 1 to 6 mm joints.
> Interior floor and wall grouting of ceramic tiles, marble, natural, stone glass mosaics, for 1-6 mm joints.
> A smooth final surface.
> Good abrasion resistance.
> Low shrinkage, therefore absence of cracks and fissures.
> Available in 16 different colors.

> Before grouting, wait until the adhesive has completely set.
> The joints must be clean, free of dust and raked back to at least 2/3 of the tile thickness.
> It is advisable to use SERACARE Surface Protector before application of FUGA on rough or porous tiles and stones for easy cleaning.
> Wet the joints with clean water when using very porous ceramic tiles in high temperatures and in the presence of wind.
> Pour 20 kg of FUGA into 6-6.6 litres of clean water slowly and mix to obtain a homogeneous paste free from lumps. (A low speed mixer is recommended to mix). Amount of water should be precisely measured. Do not add any additive which is not mentioned in the instructions for the application. Excess water can cause cracking, low abrasion resistance and colour defects.
> Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes to mature. After 1-2 minutes remixing, the paste is ready for application.
> Fill the joints completely with FUGA using the appropriate rubber trowel, making sure the joints are completely compacted. Remove excess FUGA from the surface moving the float diagonally across joints.
> When the mixture loses its plasticity and becomes matt, usually after 10-20 minutes, clean the surface with a damp sponge working diagonally to the joints. If cleaning is carried out when the mixture is stil plastic, the gorut may be dragged from the joint leading to colour variations.
> Any residue left can be cleaned from the surface with a clean dry cloth.
> If the surface of walls and floors are still contaminated with FUGA use SERACARE Cement Remover to clean, at least 10 days after grouting the joints.
> Dispose mortars of which pot life is expired.
> Clean tools and containers with plenty of water before FUGA hardens.
> When applying FUGA in extremely hot, dryer windy climates, it is recommended to wet the joints after several hours to improve the final performance.
> Since contains cement, irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin. For further information refer to safety data sheet.
> Store in dry medium. Do not stack more than 10 bags on top of each other.
> 20 kg multi-ply paper bags.
> 1 kg, 2 kg and 5 kg polyethylene bags.
