Areas of Use

Use
High-performance grouting, from 0 to 5 mm, with extra-fine finish, high degree of hardness and reduced water absorption.

Materials to be Grouted:
porcelain tiles, low thickness slabs, ceramic tiles, klinker, cotto, glass and ceramic mosaic, of all types and formats - natural stone, recomposed materials, marble

Internal and external flooring and walls, in domestic, commercial and industrial applications and street furniture, in environments subject to heavy traffic, swimming pools, baths and fountains, also in areas subject to thermal shock and freezing.

Do not use
On joints more than 5 mm in width, on floors and walls where specific chemical resistances or absolutely no water absorption are required; to grout elastic expansion or fractionising joints; on substrates which are highly deformable, not perfectly dry or subject to moisture rising.

Instructions For Use

Preparation of substrates
Before grouting joints, check that tiles have been laid correctly and are anchored perfectly to the substrate. Substrates must be perfectly dry. Grout joints in accordance with 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, ambient 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 on account of the uneven evaporation of remaining water through the grout.
Joints must be free from any excess adhesive, even if already hardened, and must be of an even depth of at least 2/3 of the overall thickness of the tile covering. This is necessary to prevent different drying times of each different thickness, with subsequent shade variations.
Any dust and loose debris must be removed from the joints by carefully cleaning them with a vacuum cleaner. In the case of highly absorbent tiles or high temperatures, a damp sponge should be passed across the surface of the tilework prior to grouting joints, in order to prevent any water stagnation.
Before grouting joints with contrasting colours, check the cleanability, as highly porous surfaces may make cleaning difficult. It is advisable to perform a preliminary test on tiles not to be laid or in a small, concealed area. In these cases we recommend treating the covering with specific protective products, being careful to avoid applying them to the joints.

Preparation
Prepare Fugabella® Eco Porcelana 0-5 in a clean container, first of all pouring in a quantity of water equal to approximately ¾ of the amount required. Gradually add Fugabella® Eco Porcelana 0-5 to the container, mixing the paste from the bottom upwards with a low-rev (≈ 400/min) helicoidal agitator. Add more water until the desired consistency is obtained. The mixture must be of smooth consistency and without any lumps. For best results, and to mix larger quantities of the grout, a stirring device with vertical blades and slow rotation is recommended. Specific polymers with high-dispersion properties ensure that Fugabella® Eco Porcelana 0-5 is immediately ready for use. The amount of water to be added, indicated on the packaging, is an approximate guide and will vary depending on the different colours. It is possible to obtain mixtures with consistency of variable thixotropy according to the application to be made. Adding extra water does not improve the workability and the cleanability of the grout, and may cause shrinkage in the plastic phase of drying and result in less effective final performance. Prepare all mixtures required to complete the process using the same amount of water, in order to avoid any variations in grout shade.

Application
Fugabella® Eco Porcelana 0-5 must be applied evenly on the tile covering with a spreader or hard rubber float. Seal the entire surface by completely grout the joints, applying the grout diagonally to the tiles. Remove most of the excess grout immediately, leaving only a thin film on the tile. Begin cleaning the tilework when the grout starts to firm into the joint. On completion, clean up the surface using a thick, large-sized sponge damped in clean water to avoid removing grout from the joints. Make sure clean water is used at all times, using appropriate trays with grills and cleaning rollers for the sponge. Use circular movements to soften the film of hardened grout on the tiles and finish cleaning the joint surface. An electric sponge grout remover is recommended for large surface areas. Finish cleaning up by dragging the sponge diagonally across the tiles while applying water evenly over the tiles, in order to prevent any shade variations. When laying tiles with very narrow joints, grout can be cleaned from the latter using a stick with a rounded tip, being careful to clean the surface of the covering with a clean cloth or sponge before the product hardens.

Cleaning
Residual traces of grout can be removed from tools with water before the product has hardened.
