Area of use
High-performance grouting of joints from 2 to 12 mm with smooth finish, high hardness, water-repellent compound with water-drop effect, rapid setting and hardening. Suitable to grout:
– Homogeneous tiles,
– Ceramic tiles,
– Klinker, terracotta, glass and ceramic mosaic,
– Natural stone,
– Agglomerate materials,
– Marbles of all types and formats
Use in domestic, commercial and industrial applications, for environments subject to heavy traffic, swimming pools, tanks and fountains and also in areas subject to thermal shock and freezing.
Do not use on joints less than 2 mm or more than 12 mm in width, on floors and walls where resistance from chemical attack or absolutely no water absorbency are required; on substrates which are highly deformable, not completely dry or subject to moisture rising.
Instructions for use
see url Preparation of substrates:
The surfaces to be grouted must be dry. Grout joints in accordance with BS 5385, parts 1-5 and the recommended waiting time indicated on the relative data sheet for the adhesive used. For mortar substrates, wait at least 7 – 14 days depending on screed thickness, weather conditions and on the level of absorption of the covering and the substrate.
Any water or moisture rising can cause salt to build up on the surface of the grout or cause shade variations due to the uneven evaporation of the remaining water through the grout. Joints must be free from any excess adhesive, even if already hardened. Furthermore they must be of an even depth equal to at least 2/3 of the thickness of the tile covering, to avoid any variations in colour.
In the case of highly absorbent tiles or high temperatures, the surface of the tilework should be dampened prior to grouting the joints, avoiding not to leave any water in the joints themselves. Before grouting with contrasting colours to the tiles, make sure they can be cleaned, by making a small trial area.
Instruction for use:
Prepare Fugabella® Eco Flex in a clean container, first of all pouring in a quantity of water equal to approximately ¾ of the amount required. Gradually pour the powder into the container, mixing the paste from the bottom upwards with a low-rev (400/min.) electrical mixer. Add more water until the desired consistency is obtained. The mixture must be of smooth consistency and without any lumps. The amount of water to be added, indicated on the packaging, is an approximate guide and will vary depending on the different colours.
Prepare all mixtures required to complete the process using the same amount of water, in order to avoid any variations in grout shade. Adding extra water does not improve the workability of the grout, and may cause shrinkage in the plastic phase of drying and result in a less effective final performance. Fugabella® Eco Flex is applied evenly into the joints using a hard rubber spreader or float, working at a diagonal to the tiles until all the joints have been filled. Remove most of the excess grout. When the grout is touch dry within the joint, start cleaning using a clean, damp sponge with a circular movement then leave to haze. Finish cleaning by wiping diagonally across the tiles with a clean damp sponge. Keep the water clean and change it regularly. Using excessive amounts of water may cause problems with grout shading, always make sure the sponge is rinsed properly and is only damp when cleaning.
