Water-based hypo-allergenic resin for waterproof, stain-proof, silk-effect grouting of porcelain tiles, natural stones and glass mosaic.

Fugalite Bio is dermatologically-tested, with the result as hypoallergenic according to a skin tolerance medical experiment conducted at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia dermatological clinic. Available in 12 natural shades inspired by the collections mainly used for making contemporary ceramic coverings. Guarantees the aesthetic and functional continuity of grouted surfaces.

  • Resistant to UV rays
  • Available in 12 colours
  • Internal and external flooring and walls 
  • Water-resistant – Drop effect, water-resistant, nonabsorbent and does not change colour
  • Patented – International patent no. 1403659 from 31/10/2013
  • Bacteriostatic – CSTB-tested. Prevents the proliferation of bacteria and moulds
  • Stain proof – Tested by the Italian Ceramic Center – Bologna (Centro Ceramico Bologna). Can be cleaned easily
  • Complies with HACCP/EC 852/2004 requirements for food hygiene
  • Catas-tested for colour durability in external applications

Use Water-resistant grouting of joints from 0 to 5 mm with high chemical and mechanical resistance and a high level of hardness. Bonding of glass mosaic.

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

Flooring and walls, for internal and external use, domestic, commercial and industrial applications and street furniture subject to permanent or occasional contact with chemical substances, in environments subject to heavy traffic, swimming pools, thermal water baths and fountains, heated floors, also in areas subject to thermal shock and freezing.

Field of application Directive CE MED Environmentally compatible grout and adhesive ceramized used as adhesive and/or as sealant between tiles. Maximum mass per area 1475 g/m² Thickness as adhesive layer 0,9 ± 0,1 mm Thickness as sealant between tiles 3,9 ± 0,1 mm As finishing material for all exposed interior and concealed or inacessible surfaces. When intended for bulkhead and ceiling, the product may be applied to any non-combustible support having a thickness equal or greater than 10 mm and a density ≥ 656 kg/m³. When intended for decks the product may applied to any metallic support, any non combustibile support an any material having low flame spread characteristics.

Do not use On joints more than 5 mm in width, on porous flooring for which more specific or alternative chemical resistances are required compared with those listed in the chemical resistances table, to grout elastic expansion or fractionizing joints or on substrates that are not fully dry and subject to moisture rising.

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 vapour pressure to accumulate, which may in turn loosen the tiles on account of the complete non-absorbency of the grout or of the tiles themselves. Joints must be free from any excess adhesive, even if already hardened. Furthermore they must be of an even depth for the whole width of the tile covering, thereby ensuring maximum chemical resistance. Any dust and loose debris must be removed from joints by carefully cleaning them with vacuum cleaner. The surface of the coating material to be grouted must be dry and free from dust or building dirt; any residual protective coatings must first be removed using specific products. Before grouting joints, check the cleanability of the tile covering, as porous or highly micro-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.

SHELF LIFE 3 kg monopack (part A 2 kg : part B 1 kg). It is recommended that the packs are stored at +20 °C for two days prior to use; higher temperatures increase the hardening speed, while lower temperatures make the mix hard to lay and slow down setting.

PREPARATION Mix 1 kg of component B with a spreader, pour it all into the bucket of component A, making sure that none of component B is left in the tin. Mix the two components using a low-speed helicoidal agitator until a smooth, even coloured mixture is obtained. Use a spreader to scrape the walls and bottom of the bucket of component A once component B has been poured into it, so that there are no areas of product that have not been properly mixed. Mixing by hand is not recommended. The mixture remains workable for approximately 45 min. (value calculated at +23 °C, R.H. 50%).

APPLICATION Fugalite® Bio must be applied evenly on the tile covering with a hard rubber spreader. Grout material has to be completely filled between entire joint areas, the application has to be done diagonally with respect to the joints. If grouting is to be on joints only, it is recommended that a test be carried out in advance before laying to ensure the surface can be properly cleaned. Remove most of the excess grout immediately using the spreader, leaving only a thin film on the tile.
