Saltillo Grout Mix

Saltillo-grout-mix

A pre-blended mixture of Portland cement, silica sand and pigments which eliminates the measuring and guesswork of site mixing or combining additional sand to conventional Portland cement grouts to compensate for wide grout joints used when setting terra-cotta, Saltillo or quarry tile.

Suitable Tile Types

  • Vitreous, semi-vitreous or non-vitreous tile: ceramic, mosaic, quarry, cement body tile
  • Impervious porcelain and glass tile

Composition & Materials

Saltillo Grout is a dry, Portland cement based grout with silica sand, inorganic aggregates and chemicals.

Benefits

  • For joints from 1/2"- 1-1/4" (13-32 mm) wide
  • Use with Saltillo, quarry and clay pavers
  • Pre-blended mix for wide joints

Limitations

  • Should not be installed when ambient or surface temperature is lower than 50°F (10°C) or higher than 100°F (38°C).
  • Some ceramic, glass, marble or stone tiles can be scratched or damaged by the silica aggregate filler. Perform a test on a small area prior to use. Polyblend® Non-Sanded Grout may be appropriate for joints up to 1/8" or for tile not suited for sanded grout.
  • Tile or stone with high absorption, surfaces that are porous or rough, textured surfaces and some types of porcelain tile may require sealing prior to grouting to prevent possible staining. Use Tilelab® SurfaceGard® Sealer or Aqua Mix® Grout Release to prevent staining when required.
  • Color variation can occur due to tile type, tile porosity, jobsite conditions, application and cleaning techniques. Variation can be minimized by following directions and using as little water as possible for cleanup.
  • Chemicals in salt-based pool filtration systems can cause a reaction with blue, green and red grouts. Contact Technical Services for recommendations.

Packaging
