  • Best Practices for Bostik Hydroment Plus Polymer-Modified Ceramic Tile Grout

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Ensure tile is firmly set and mortar completely dry EY487before grouting. Remove all spacers, debris or adhesive from tile joints. Application of a grout release agent may be necessary to prevent staining of tile. NOTE: It is the user’s responsibility to determine the condition and suitability of all surfaces before application.

    2. Application

      Lightly moisten tile with a clean, damp sponge before grouting. Spread grout over face of the tile using a rubber grout float. Work grout back and forth at a 45° angle to the face of the tile to ensure complete filling of joints. Remove excess grout by holding rubber float at a 90° angle working diagonally across face of the tile.

    3. Mixing

      In a clean pail add 25 lbs. of grout to a 1/2 gallon of clean potable water. Mix only with water. Mix slowly to a smooth, paste-like consistency. Let stand for 15 minutes and remix to eliminate streaks and ensure uniform color. Grout can be re-mixed during its pot life for improved workability. DO NOT RETEMPER BY ADDING MORE WATER.

    4. Clean-Up

      Remove excess Hydroment Plus polymer-modified grout from hands and tools with a sponge and clean water immediately after use. Removal of cured grout is very difficult.
