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).
Note: Surfaces must be structurally sound, stable and rigid enough to support ceramic/stone tile, thin brick and similar finishes. Substrate deflection under all live, dead and impact loads, including concentrated loads, must not exceed L/360 for thin bed ceramic tile/brick installations or L/480 for thin bed stone installations where L=span length.
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.
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.
Do not take internally. Silica sand may cause cancer or serious lung problems. Avoid breathing dust. Wear a respirator in dusty areas.
Grout may scratch soft glazed or polished surfaces. Conduct a test area to verify results
In submerged applications or steam rooms allow LATICRETE PermaColor Grout to cure for 14 days at 70°F (21°C) prior to filling with water or exposing to steam. See TDS 192 and TDS 172 for more information on these applications.
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. Note: when grouting in hot weather refer to LATICRETE Technical Data Sheet 176 Hot Weather Tiling and Grouting. Substrate temperature must be between 40°F (4°C) and 90°F (32°C). Apply grout release or sealer if necessary. Refer to LATICRETE® TDS 400 “Grout Guide” for more information on grouting.
Use approximately 2 quarts (1.9 ℓ) of clean potable water for 25 lbs (11.3 kg) of LATICRETE PermaColor™ Grout. Do not use with LATICRETE 1776 Grout Enhancer or any other latex additive. Place water in a clean mixing container and add grout powder. Mix with a slow speed drill mixer (300 rpm) for 1 minute. Wait for 5 minutes and remix with drill for 1 minute.
Clean tile surface with a damp sponge. Spread with a sharp, firm rubber grout float or wall float for narrow wall joints. To remove excess grout hold the float at a 90° angle and pull it at a 45° angle diagonally across the joints to avoid pulling out the material.Note: If the grout begins to stiffen during installation, remix with drill mixer f0r 10–15 seconds. DO NOT ADD MORE WATER!
Wait 15–20 minutes at 70°F (21°C). For wider joints or cooler temperatures wait longer (25-30 minutes) Begin initial cleaning by lightly wiping down entire area to be cleaned with a damp sponge.
Wash with a damp sponge (not wet). Work diagonally to the joints. Allow to dry 3 hours at 70°F (21°C). For second cleaning use a damp sponge or dry cloth to remove remaining grout haze. Note: Use caution when polishing soft glazed tile or polished stone.If grout is to be sealed, LATICRETE generally recommends waiting a minimum of a 48 hours at 70°F (21°C) prior to sealing LATICRETE PermaColor Grout, or any other cement-based LATICRETE grout; however, we suggest deferring to the written recommendations of the sealer manufacturer to make the final determination, as certain sealers may require the cement grout to cure for an extended period of time.
