How to use this product

Preparation

  • For new tiling jobs, use Selleys White For Life Tiling Adhesives. Ensure that the tile adhesive has set (usually 24-48hrs).
  • Remove spacers, rake out excessive, dust, debris etc from the joints. If re-grouting remove old grout and clean thoroughly with Selleys Rapid Mould Killer and allow to dry. Do not grout at temperatures below 10°C, or in damp conditions.
  • Before grouting, check ease of removal from matt or textured tile surfaces. Seal porous tiles before grouting or removal of grout from tiles will be difficult.

Application

  1. Cut seal, screw on nozzle, cut to size. Apply with a caulking gun, forcing grout into joints (for cartridge only). Grout small areas at a time.
  2. Work the grout into the joints and smooth off using a rubber squeegee or grout float, moving diagonally across the joints with several passes to compact the grout lines and minimise the amount left on the face of the tiles – avoid moving along the joint as this removes grout from the joint.
    Tip: hold float/squeegee at 45° angle; clean regularly. Clean up with water, before grout sets.
  3. Allow grout to firm up in joints for approx 20 min (longer in colder conditions).
  4. Using a damp (not wet) sponge, clean tile surfaces, by wiping lightly, in a circular motion. Finish with a single wipe diagonally across the tile with a clean damp ( not wet) sponge. Avoid repeated wiping as this may remove grout which is not yet fully set, from the joints.
  5. Buff and polish the tile surface, after 24hours, with a soft clean cloth. Use Selleys White For Life Grout Cleaner for any stubborn haze marks.

Clean up

*Clean up with water, before grout sets.

Handy tips

  • If the grout is overworked or excessive water is used to smooth off, it may appear to shrink – simply apply a second coat to affected areas.

*To maintain whiteness and long term stain & mould resistance:

  • Allow grout to set for 3 days before sealing Selleys White For Life Sealer for maximum stain resistance. Reapply sealer annually or whenever grout has been scrubbed hard.
  • Clean grout and tiles regularly with Selleys White For Life Tile & Grout Cleaner to avoid build up of soil or soap scrum. Do not use harsh acidic cleaners.
  • Areas subject to high foot traffic will require frequent cleaning.
  • Clean up spills immediately – grout will resist penetration by common stains for up to 10 minutes.
