Method of Application :

  • Mixing
  • For most applications dilute 1 part Tuffex GT with 2 parts water use the TUFFEX GT : water blend to replace the gauging water when preparing the grout for use.

The working time of the polymer modified grout may be shorter than that of the unmodified material, especially in higher temperatures. the colour of the set grout may appear slightly darker than when unmodified. use the same mix proportions throughout an installation to ensure niform colour.


Performance

  • The addition of Dubond's TUFFEX GT to dubond's dufill cement-based grouts greatly improves their physical properties and
  • characteristics. increased mechanical strength.
  • Provides greater adhesion to tile edges e.g. glass mosaics and fully vitrified tiles.
  • Provides greater abrasion resistance. particularly important in heavily trafficked areas such as shopping malls. increased flexural strength and flexibility.
  • Enables grouts to be used where limited movement/vibration is anticipated e.g. heated screeds and timber floors. educed water permeability.
  • Provides greater protection to water sensitive backgrounds and minimizing the risk of efflorescence.


Precautions & Limitations
Do not use on floors and walls where specific chemical resistances or absolutely no water absorbency is required; to grout elastic expansion or fractionizing joints; on substrates which are highly deformable, not fully dry or subject to moisture rising; on tiles or materials with porous or rough surfaces that are difficult to clean. Strictly keep to the indicated mixing ratio Apply the mixed product to a trial section first to check how the porous or microporous surface ceramic tiles or natural stone react to cleaning, as they may not be suitable for the use of grouts with latex additives

Health & Saftey Precautions

  • Keep out of reach of children. wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, and eye / face protection. after contact with skin wash immediately with plenty of clean water. in case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice Mixing For most applications dilute 1 part Tuffex GT with 2 parts water use the TUFFEX GT : water blend to replace the gauging water when preparing the grout for use.
