A blend of Portland cement, chemical additives and fillers, it has hydrophobic properties that allow tile joints to resist water for up to one hour. Used for filling tile joints of width 1mm to 3mm in both interior and exterior areas, it is recommended for ceramic, vitrified, non-vitreous clay tile, natural stone and engineered stone/agglomerates. Ideal for floors and walls, it is suitable for wet areas too.

Mix the grout filler with LATICRETE® 1776 Latex Admix, mix only enough that can be used in 30 min or less. Clean up immediately before beginning next mix.
When applying, the grout joints should be free of dirt, debris or tile spacers. Sponge or wipe dust/dirt of tile faces and remove water standing in joints. Pack joints full and free of voids with rubber grouting float. Remove excess grout from tile faces using edge of rubber float and diagonal strokes (at 45° angle to direction of joints). When the joints have set, use a moist sponge to remove excess grout from the tile and joint. Use minimal water for clean up. Final clean up to remove any grout haze should be carried out within the next 12 – 24 hours.
