Colour Chart

Grouting tips from the specialists
  • Before beginning grout work, first decide whether you want the grout work to blend in with the tiles or stand out from the tiles.
  • If you want the grout to blend in with the tile, make sure the colour of your grout is as close as possible to the colour of the tile. If you want the grout to stand out from the tile, select colours that contrast with your tile.
  • Even if you decide to blend in your grout, pick a colour that is a shade different form your tile. This can give you a pleasant design instead of just having one colour everywhere.
  • When contrasting colours, select colours that compliment each other. Additionally, be careful when contrasting colours. If your contrast is too much, you might end up with a checkerboard look.
  • It is a good idea to use dark grout on tiles that have a lot of heavy traffic since it hides dirt better.

PREPARATION
Mortar bed should be thoroughly dry before grouting approximately 48 hours for thin bed method. Clean tile and joint surfaces thoroughly and remove all excess water.

MIXING
Use a clean mixing container and a low speed mixer (approx. 300 RPM). Pour clean, cool water into a container and gradually add grout while slowly mixing. Mix thoroughly to a heavy cream consistency and allow to slake for 5-10 minutes, then remix thoroughly until smooth. Some stiffening may occur before all material is used (usually within about 1 hour at room temperature). If this occurs simply remix but do not add any water. Use approximately 16 FL OZ of water for every 5 lbs of sanded grout and approximately 23 FL OZ of water for every 5 lbs of unsanded grout.

APPLICATION
Using a grout float, work grout into joints. Remove excess grout from surface. Allow grout joints to become slightly firm. Clean grout joints with a damp sponge. To help control colour variations, buff the grouted surface with a soft cloth when haze is visible on the tile surface, usually one to two hours after grouting. This should remove any remaining surface water or grout residue. To prevent efflorescence, discoloration and soft powdery joints, avoid cleaning with excessive water. Note: Actual shades may vary from colour charts as they depend on job site conditions, installation techniques, cleaning methods, tile characteristics and other factors beyond the manufacturer's control.

CLEAN UP
Clean hands and tools with soapy water before materials dry.

CURING
Keep completely dry and free form traffic for at least 24 hours after grouting. Wait for one week after grouting to ensure the grout has cured properly before applying any sort of cleaning agent, otherwise, discoloration may occur. Sealing the grout is recommended but not mandatory. When choosing a sealer, follow the recommendations and instructions of the sealer manufacturer.
