Custom® Building Products is committed to environmental responsibility in both products produced and in manufacturing practices. Use of this product can contribute towards LEED® v3 certification:
USE CHEMICAL-RESISTANT GLOVES, such as nitrile, when handling product.
All surfaces on which tiles are to be set must be dry, structurally sound, and not subject to temperatures below 65° F (18° C) or above 95° F (35° C). Surfaces must be dry and free of all grease, oil, dirt, dust, curing compounds, sealers, coating, efflorescence, old adhesive residues, gypsum-based underlayments and any other foreign matter.
May irritate eyes. May irritate skin. Do not swallow. Do not get in eyes. Do not get on skin or clothing. Do not breathe fumes. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Wear safety glasses and chemical-resistant gloves. First Aid Treatment: If swallowed, call a poison control center or doctor immediately. Do not induce vomiting. If in eyes, rinse with water 15 minutes. If on skin, rinse well with water.
Stir contents of Part "A" thoroughly, then combine entire contents of part "A" and "B" in a clean mixing container. Stir with a margin trowel until thoroughly mixed. Gradually add a 25 lb (11.34 kg) bag of Polyblend® Sanded Grout into premixed liquids. Using a low speed mechanical mixer (300 RPM or less), mix until smooth. Consistency can be adjusted by reducing the amount of powder added up to 25% (17 lbs). Typically narrow joints require less Polyblend®. For vertical installations, add Non-Slump Epoxy Additive according to directions.
Remove all mixed epoxy from container and place in small piles where work is to proceed. This will extend working time. When grouting walls, place epoxy on mortar board placed on the floor. Using an epoxy grout float, pack joint full with epoxy being careful not to leave voids during application. Remove excess epoxy by holding grout float at a 90° angle and pulling the float diagonally across the grout joints. Removing as much epoxy as possible will make final cleaning easier. Avoid gouging joints. Allow joint to set for approximately 15-30 minutes or until they begin to firm. Time will vary depending upon substrate and ambient temperature. Do not allow epoxy to set on face of tile. Apply liberal amounts of clean, cool water to the grouted area. Adding a few drops (maximum) of dishwashing liquid to the water will aid in cleanup. Using a white nylon pad, work in a circular motion to loosen epoxy film and finish joints smoothly. If necessary add more water to aid cleaning. Clean film from tile with a damp cotton towel and clean water. Change rinse water frequently to aid cleanup and minimize epoxy residue left behind. If a film is noticed after final cleanup, allow joints to cure for 2 hours (depending upon temperature) and rinse grouted tile with clean water and hydro sponge.
Generally, light foot traffic can be allowed in 18 hours at 75°F (24°C), normal foot traffic in 24 hours and heavy foot traffic in 72 hours. Epoxy should be kept dry and protected from exposure to food or other chemicals, that could stain or attack the grout, for 7 days after installation.
