Mixing & Application:
We recommend that a period of 7-14 days is left before pointing your patio. When you are ready to grout your paving, ensure that your paving slabs & joints are clean and dry, free of debris, residue and dirt. Pre-soak the surface of the slabs & joints with water to ensure they are damp, but not over soaked with ponded water – a light spray with a hose is perfect. Dampening your slabs prior to grouting will help reduce the risk of staining or picture framing.
Particularly porous or textured tiles & slabs may require sealing before grouting with a suitable impregnating sealer. If in any doubt trial an inconspicuous area on your paving to check for staining prior to beginning.
Pour 3.37l of water (approximately 3⁄4 of the amount required) into a clean bucket. Gradually add Fuga-Pave Flex CH to the container, mixing the powder & water together from the bottom upwards with a low rev paddle mixer. Continue to steadily add more of the remaining 1.13l of water until the desired consistency is obtained, the mixture should be a smooth consistency and free of lumps, like a cake batter mixture.
Once mixed, Fuga-Pave Grout is immediately ready for use, the grout should be used within 60 minutes (warmer weather above 20 degrees will reduce the amount of workability of the product). The amount of water to be added, as indicated on the packaging, is an approximate guide and will vary depending on colour. Ensure that each batch of grout is mixed with the same volume of water to avoid any variations in grout shade. Adding additional water to that advised may cause shrinkage & cracking in the drying process.
Fuga-Pave grout must be applied evenly across the tiles or paving slabs, with a squeegee or rubber float. Ensure that the joints are completely and evenly filled, applying the grout mixture diagonally across the joints.
Once the Fuga-Pave Grout is touch dry in the joint, gently begin to clean up the surface using a thick, large sponge dampened with clean water or alternatively use a wash-boy – do not apply too much pressure to avoid removing grout from the joints. Use circular movements to emulsify the film of hardened grout on the paving slabs or tiles. Then, using another clean bucket of fresh water, finish the final clean by sweeping the sponge in diagonal movements across the tiles, whilst applying water evenly over the tiles to prevent any shade variations.
Please note: Wash all tools frequently to avoid grout bonding to them.
