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.
Lightly dampen tile surface before spreading. Do not allow any water to puddle on the surface of the tile or in the grout joints. Use a medium to hard grout float to spread grout. Spread grout and fill joints for 2 minutes, typically 10 sq. ft. (0.9 m²) increments. More grout can be spread in cool, damp conditions; less in hot, dry conditions. Drag the edge of the float diagonally across the tile to remove excess grout while leaving the joints full. Cleaning of grouted area should begin immediately, before grouting next section.
Use a lightly damp grout sponge held flat against the tile. Working the entire 20 sq. ft. area, use a circular motion and moderate pressure to loosen any grout that is still adhered to the tile surface. Limit the number of times you rinse out the sponge at this stage. The residue on the sponge will help break up and soften residue on the surface of the tile. Do not over scrub as it may pull grout out of the joints. Grout joints must remain full. In areas where the Fusion Pro is well-adhered, leaving a visible film that is not releasing from the surface of the tile, re-apply a small amount of Fusion Pro. Slurry the grout with the clean up sponge until clean (approximately 30 seconds). Wipe the area clean with a rinsed, lightly damp sponge, followed by a lightly damp microfiber towel.
Once grout on tiled surfaces has been loosened, thoroughly rinse and wring out the sponge.Wipe the sponge once across the grouted tile diagonally to clean the face of the tile and create smooth consistent grout joints.Flip the sponge over and continue cleaning the next area.Rinse, wring and repeat until you have dragged a clean sponge face across the entire 20 sq. ft. area of freshly grouted tile.
Lastly, drag a lightly damp microfiber towel across the surface for final clean up. Do not allow Fusion Pro to dry or skin over prior to final cleaning. If grout dries on the surface, lightly moisten and wait 2-4 minutes, then gently clean the tile surface using a sponge (or a white nylon scrubber) to remove residue. If streaks or residue remain after 2 hours, use diluted Aqua Mix® Grout Haze Clean-Up, Aqua Mix® Non-Cement Grout Haze Remover, TileLab® Grout & Tile Cleaner or TileLab® Heavy Duty Stripper & Cleaner and clean with a sponge or scrub pad. Additional instruction and videos available online.
Allow 24 hrs until light traffic, and 7 days at 70° F (21° C) and 50% relative humidity before intermittent water exposure (such as a shower enclosure). 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 ensure 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
Fusion Pro is a stain resistant grout. Sealing is not necessary. If sealing of the tile is necessary, use a water based sealer like AquaMix Sealer's Choice Gold and wipe off excess on grout joints. 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.
