Dubond's Aqua Seal is a single part high degree of hardness, calibrated and smooth finish that is suitable for high resistance grouting from 1 mm to 12 mm on all horizontal and vertical surfaces with complete range of tiles and stone. It is thixotropic.
Features & Benefits
Method of Application
Before commencing grouting the adhesive bed must be set. It is essential that the tiles used are appropriate for the service conditions and are fixed in a solid bed of adhesive i.e ensuring that, as far as possible, no voids are left behind the tiles, refer to the relevant product data sheet for setting / drying times. Protect open joints from contamination and ensure that they are clean, dry and free from loose debris prior to grouting. Do not use in damp conditions
Method of Application
Using a grout float or rubber squzee compact the grout into the joints ensuring that they are completely filled. Work in small areas and remove as much excess grout from the tile surface as possible. Do not exceed the working time of the grout. Refer to table for details. Use a sponge or sponge-board, dampened with clean water to clean the tile surface. Allow about 15 minutes for the grout to dry a little before cleaning off. Clean diagonally to the joint lines. Finally wash down with clean water with sponge/sponge board to remove any dried grout film from the tile surface. Once the grout has sufficiently set within the joints, polish the surface with a clean cloth. Alternatively give a final wash down with clean water using a dampened sponge.
