Tile surface should be clean, free from dust or any foreign matter. Dampen the tile surface while removing dust or mortar residues. Do not allow water to puddle in the grout joints. Use grout release or sealers such as Aqua Mix® Grout Release or Sealer’s Choice® Gold for porous or rough tiles that may be hard to clean, including quarry or limestone, or when using a grout that contrasts with the color of the tile. Try a test patch to be sure. Clean uncured materials from these surfaces immediately with soap and water.

Ready to use – no mixing required.
Fusion Pro is a new technology grout with significant advantages over traditional grouts, requiring modified installation techniques to achieve best results. Do not apply or clean up this grout as typically done with cement or epoxy grout.
Keep tile surface moist between spreading and cleaning. Fusion Pro cures by evaporation, do not allow Fusion Pro to dry or skin over during spreading and prior to final cleaning.
Depending on the tile, use a standard gum rubber or polypoxylene grout float. Spread grout and fill joints for 3-4 minutes [typically 20 sq. ft (1.9 M²)] or just before Fusion Pro starts to skin. Be sure to rewet that surface with clean water. (More can be spread in cool, damp conditions, less in hot, dry conditions.) Use the float to remove as much excess grout as possible while leaving the joints full.
When grouting both vertical and horizontal substrates together, protect horizontal substrate from excess wash water by covering the area prior to grout installation.
Cleaning can begin immediately (starting at the initial spreading point) using a light, circular motion with a moderately damp grout sponge to loosen excess grout from the tile surface. Option: Add Aqua Mix Grout Haze Clean-Up to your wash bucket if desired. To extend working time, rewet as necessary with a moderately damp grout sponge as conditions dictate. Use a damp grout sponge to clean excess grout residue and shape joints.
Start at the initial point again, and lightly drag a semi-wet sponge diagonally across the tile to remove the grout slurry/residue. Rinse sponge and change rinse water frequently. If dried on the surface, rewet Fusion Pro, wait 2-4 minutes and lightly clean the tile surface using a sponge (or a white nylon scrubber if needed) to remove residue, taking care to leave the joints full. (Applying water and allowing dwell time works better than scrubbing) Follow up with a final rinse. Use plenty of fresh water and a light touch for the final cleaning and removal of residue.
For best results drag a damp microfiber towel across tile surface for final removal of residue and standing water on the tile surface. If streaks or residue remain after grout has skinned over (more than 2 hours), use undiluted concentrations of TileLab® Grout & Tile Cleaner or Aqua Mix® Grout Haze Clean-Up. Allow to soak for 4-5 minutes and use a white nylon scrub pad, although you may be able to wipe the tile surface clean immediately depending on the conditions. Buff tile surface with a towel to remove cleaner residue.
Allow 24 hrs until light traffic, and 3 days at 70° F (21° C) and 50% relative humidity before intermittent water exposure. Lower temperatures and higher humidity will slow the cure times. Covering Fusion Pro immediately after grouting will extend the cure time. Grout should be allowed to cure 24 hours before covering with a highly-porous protective material to insure a timely cure to protect the surface from other trades traffic. Lower temperatures and higher humidity will slow cure times. Exterior applications must be protected from rain, snow and other wet conditions for at least 7 days with temperature above 50° F (10° C). If inclement weather is expected, protect the work area with tenting at least 1 foot (30 cm) above the finished surface to allow air flow. Enclose and protect exterior installations and maintain >50° F (10° C) temperatures for at least 72 hours for proper cure.
Sealing of Grout
Sealing is not necessary. Do not use solvent-based sealers with Fusion Pro.
Clean tools and hands with water before material dries.
Protect grout from freezing. If product freezes, return to room temperature and use as directed. Do not stir if partially frozen.
Clean with a neutral cleaner such as Aqua Mix AquaKleen, Aqua Mix Concentrated Stone & Tile Cleaner or Tilelab Grout & Tile Cleaner.
