Maximum chemical resistance is achieved in seven (7) days at 70°F (21°C). Protect from exposure to strong chemicals until fully cured; at colder temperatures it takes longer to achieve full cure.
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).
Please consult with LATICRETE Technical Services for specific recommendations, if grout will be exposed to chemicals other than those indicated on the chemical resistant chart.
Not for use with color #44 Bright White
Consult MSDS for more safety information.
Protect finished work from chemical exposure, dirt and traffic until fully cured.
Until cured, LATICRETE® SpectraLOCK® 2000 IG may irritate eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and 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.
Keep out of reach of children.
Before starting to grout remove spacers and debris in grout joints and remove dust and dirt using a damp sponge. Allow to dry. Do not leave water standing in joints. Do not clean tiles with acid cleaners. Substrate temperature must be between 45°F (7°C) and 90°F (32°C).
Note: Temperature will affect working properties of LATICRETE® SpectraLOCK® 2000 IG. Warm temperatures will speed curing and shorten working time. Cool temperatures will slow curing and require longer time to traffic. Store LATICRETE SpectraLOCK 2000 IG (including Part C) at 70°F (21°C) for 24 hours prior to use.
Pour LATICRETE SpectraLOCK 2000 IG Part A and Part B into a clean mixing pail and mix thoroughly with a drill mixer until liquids are completely blended. Add all of the Part C powder. The mix will look thick at the beginning. Whip it thoroughly with high speed mixer (>450 rpm) until uniformly blended (Minimum 2 Minutes) This will aerate the grout to very fluffy mix.
For maximum pot life, remove grout from bucket and spread on floor or plastic sheeting. Spread the grout with sharp, firm rubber grout float. Work the grout paste into the joints. Insure the joint is filled and grout is not sitting on top. Remove excess grout from the face of the tiles with the edge of the grout float. Hold the float at 90° angle and pull it diagonally across the joints and tile to avoid pulling out the material.
Initial Cleaning – USE INITIAL WASH CLEANING ADDITIVE!
Once grout has been spread, wait approximately 15 minutes at 70°F (21°C) prior to beginning initial wash. Add Initial Wash cleaning additive to 2 gals (7.6 l) of clean water and mix until fully dissolved. Do not mix cleaning additive with grout. Wipe grout joints and tile surface with a white nylon pad and plenty of water (with the cleaning additive) using a circular motion. Drag a damp clean sponge diagonally over the scrubbed surface to remove grout residue.
Final Cleaning – USE FINAL WASH CLEANING ADDITIVE!
Wait at least 90 minutes at 70°F (21°C) for the final wash using the same procedure as in the initial wash. Prepare another two gallons of clean water and add the Final Wash cleaning additive and mix until fully dissolved. In the final wash avoid contact with the grout – clean tile surface only.
