PROPERTIES

 

Flexible, anti frost, water repellent tile grout in powder form, with cutting edge, flexible water repellent resins and special fillers. This product deserves to be called innovative, because it is the first flexible, one component tile grout. Distinguished for its high mechanical strengths, it does not crack, even under the most adverse environmental conditions. It exhibits excellent resistance to acids, alkalis, strong cleansers, as well as certain solvents and chlorinated water. It has excellent workability and its adhesion to the sides of tiles is exceptional.
It does not stain from watery and oily stains, such as stains from water, coffee, oil, wine etc. Does not favor mold, fungi, and bacteria formations. Absolutely user and environment friendly.
Classified CG2/WAr per EN 13888.

 

APPLICATIONS

 

DUROSTICK FLEXIBLE & OIL REPELLENT GROUT is the only sensible complement to the flexible adhesion of tiles (when using flexible adhesives with deformability classification S1 and S2).
Suitable for every type of grouting of tiles, granite, and marble as well as of glass mosaic. Also exceptionally suitable for replacing existing grout with hair line cracks and various damage. It fully restores and perfectly waterproofs, providing that the existing grout is removed to a depth of at least 3mm and the substrate of the joints is meticulously cleaned.
It is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, and for areas subjected to strict hygiene standards. Ideal for grouting tiles on terraces, roofs, substrates with radiant heating, drywall and cement boards, generally areas subjected to thermal or mechanical stresses and vibrations (metal and wooden lofts for example).

 

USE

 

1. Surface preparation
Remove from the tile surface any adhesive residue and clean all the joints with a damp sponge. For outdoor areas, it is recommended that on every 20m², we create and prime the expansion joints with PRIMER-PU and after 2-3 hours, we apply the elastomeric polyurethane sealant DUROFLEX-PU, to fill them out. Also, both indoors and out, the creation of perimeter expansion joints, 5-8mm wide, is recommended. Create expansion joints between tile and vertical surface, and fill in the same way as described above, thus reducing the compression of the joints from expansions and contractions.
2. Application
Empty the powder into a clean container with cool water, at a ratio of 0.6-0.8lt of water to 4kg of powder, and mix with a low speed electric mixer, until a lump free, homogenous mass is created. Allow the mixture to mature for 5-10 minutes and mix periodically, without adding extra water.
Apply the grout using a grouting float working diagonally towards the grout joints, without leaving any gaps or residue. Remove all residues using a slightly damp sponge, 10-15 minutes after application (depending on weather conditions). Finally, when the material hardens, clean the tiled surface either using a damp cloth or with the biodegradable cleaner, EPOXY GROUT CLEANER. Alternately use DUROSTICK ACID CLEANER, after 20 days from completing the grouting process (always following the instructions of the ACID CLEANER).

NOTES

 

• Avoid grouting at temperatures above 35°C when the surface is exposed to sunlight thus preventing cracking. If this is unavoidable, cover with wet burlap or polystyrene panels the still wet grouted surface.
• When working with rustic or absorbent cotto (terracotta) tiles, apply 2 coats of the waterproofing and oil repellent product, DUROSTICK D-29 SPOT FREE or NANO PROOF MARMO DS-275 of DUROSTICK, to avoid staining from the residues of the grout. For the application, use the ‘wet-on-wet’ method.
•The addition of any improvers is strictly prohibited.

ADVANTAGES

• Highly deformable (pic.4) and long lasting
• Exceptional adhesion
• Excellent waterproofing and breathability
• Prevent the penetration of moisture and its resulting damage
• When grouting interior surfaces using the FLEXIBLE & OIL REPELLENT GROUT, expansion joints per 20m² are not necessary. However, perimeter expansion joints are necessary in this case. For these applications, the use of the multipurpose elastomeric sealant and adhesive, DS-POLYMER, available in 32 shades, is recommended.
• Self cleaning
• It does not discolor and does not absorb environmental pollutants
• Does not require additives for increased flexibility
• Light color floor grout is especially easy to clean due to its water repellency and waterproofing properties

HELPFULL TIP

DUROSTICK grouts are available in a variety of colors, able to meet every styling requirement in relation with the lining. Furthermore, it is possible to color the DUROSTICK grouts, using the DUROCOLOR POWDER-C system. Color the white grouts, based on the existing color chart, or experiment creating unique colors or shading combinations.
