Adhesives/mastics, mortars and grouts for ceramic tile, pavers, brick and stone are not replacements for waterproofing membranes. When a waterproofing membrane is required, use a LATICRETE Waterproofing Membrane (see Section 10 FILING SYSTEM).
Not for use with absorbent tile. For absorbent tile and polished marble use LATICRETE 1600 Unsanded Grout.
DO NOT use for chemical resistance. Use LATICRETE SpectraLOCK 2000 IG when chemical resistance is required.
DO NOT use acid to clean colored grout joints.
Job site conditions will affect the final color of colored grouts. Try a small test area to determine your results before grouting the entire installation.
Certain types of tile are more absorbent than others and will trap color pigment during grouting.
Prior to grouting, test for absorption of color pigment. Porous tiles will need to be sealed prior to grouting.
Selecting Other Grouting Materials: LATICRETE has grouting materials designed for every use. For installations that require high strength and chemical resistance choose LATICRETE SpectraLOCK 2000 IG. This product is ideal for installations where a stain resistant colorfast grout is desired.
LATICRETE 1500 Sanded Grout is designed to be mixed with either water or LATICRETE 1776 Grout Enhancer. Do not mix other grout additives with this product. Use of other grout additives may result in color variation and reduced product performance and will void all LATICRETE warranties.
Consult MSDS for more safety information.
During cold weather, protect finished work from traffic until fully cured.
Contains portland cement and silica sand. May irritate eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes or prolonged contact with skin. In case of contact, flush thoroughly with water.
In submerged applications or steam rooms, allow LATICRETE 1500 Sanded Grout for cure 14 days at 70°F (21°C) before use of area and filing with water. See TDS 192 for more information on these applications.
DO NOT take internally. Silica sand may cause cancer or serious lung problems. Avoid breathing dust. Wear a respirator in dusty areas.
Keep out of reach of children.
Before starting to grout, remove spacers and debris in grout joints and remove dust and dirt using a wet sponge. Do not leave water standing in joints. Substrate temperature must be between 40°F (4°C) and 90°F (32°C). Apply grout release or sealer if necessary.
Use approximately 2–2-3/8 quarts (1.9 – 2-1/4 l) of clean potable water for 25 lbs (11.3 kg) of LATICRETE 1500 Sanded Grout powder. Place water 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.
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”). Note: For fuller, flush joints sprinkle a thin layer of dry grout powder over surface immediately after grouting. When grout darkens over joint, buff with burlap, carpet remnant or cotton rag to pack joint and clean face of tile.
Grout Primary Cleaning—Remove excess grout from the face of the tiles with the edge of the grout float. Hold the float at a 90° angle and pull it at a 45° angle diagonally across the joints and tile to avoid pulling out the material.
Grout Secondary Cleaning—Remove remaining grout with a damp sponge (not wet) or a damp towel. Work diagonally to the joints. Allow to dry. When the grout joints are firm, polish the surface with a coarse nylon pad or coarse cloth and minimal water. Note: Use caution when polishing soft glazed tiles or polished stone.
