* High humidity will reduce the shelf life of bagged product.
Do not use where chemical resistance is required. Instead, use LATICRETE SpectraLOCK 2000 IG.
Do not use acid to clean colored grout joints.
Do not allow grout to harden on the face of the tile; clean promptly.
Jobsite conditions can affect the final color of colored grouts. Try a small test area to determine your results before grouting entire installation.
Certain types of tile are more absorbent than others and may stain during grouting. Prior to grouting, test a tile with the grout selected. Use a grout release or sealer if required.
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 SYSTEMS).
LATICRETE 1600 Unsanded 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. 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®1600 Unsanded Grout to cure for 14 days at 70°F (21°C) before use of area and filing with water.
DO NOT take internally.
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. Refer to LATICRETE Grout Troubleshooting Guide for more information on grouting.
Use approximately 4.5–5 qts (4.2–4.7ℓ) of clean potable water for 25 lbs (11.3 kg) or 1.4–1.6 qts (1.3–1.5 ℓ) of clean potable water to 8 lb 3.6 kg of LATICRETE 1600 Unsanded 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”).
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.Selecting Other Grout Materials LATICRETE has grouting materials designed for every use. For maximum stain resistance in most installations choose
LATICRETE SpectraLOCK®† PRO Grout. For installations that require high strength and chemical resistance choose LATICRETE SpectraLOCK 2000 IG. These products are ideal for installations where a stain resistant, colorfast grout is desired.
