For use on:
Sanded, unsanded and epoxy grout joints. Effective for interior and exterior applications. Suitable for new or existing grout
- Grout Colorant is not recommended for use underwater in pools, ponds, or on areas subject to hydrostatic pressure
- Do not use solvent-based cleaners on recolored grout joints
- Previously applied sealers, with the exception of Aqua Mix® Penetrating Sealer, Aqua Mix® Grout Sealer, Aqua Mix® Pro-Solv, Aqua Mix® Ultra-Solv® or Aqua Mix® Sealer’s Choice® Gold, must be removed to provide a bondable surface. Aqua Mix® Sealer & Coating Remover is recommended for this procedure
- Porous tile may require sealing to ensure colorant is not absorbed into the tile
General Surface Prep:
Test a small area according to application instructions, with a minimum 1-hour cure time to determine desired results.
The Grout must be dry prior to applying Grout Colorant – the following document explains in detail the definition of the term “dry” as it relates to Colorant application. READ MORE
USE CHEMICAL-RESISTANT GLOVES, such as nitrile, when handling product. Read entire label before using. SHAKE WELL before using. For new installations, Grout Colorant can be applied a minimum of 48 hours after grouting depending on jobsite conditions and ambient temperature. Grout joints must be clean, dry and free of existing sealers or coatings.
Prepare existing grout joints:
- MOST TILE & STONE: Use Aqua Mix® Phosphoric Acid Substitute.
- ACID-SENSITIVE STONE OR SINGLE COMPONENT GROUT JOINTS: Use Aqua Mix® HeavyDuty Tile & Grout Cleaner, Aqua Mix® Grout Deep Clean or Aqua Mix® Stone Deep Clean.
- EPOXY OR URETHANE GROUT JOINTS: Use Aqua Mix® Sealer & Coating Remover.
If more than 1 bottle of a single color is to be used, mix the material together in a large container to ensure uniformity of color. Spread evenly using the Applicator Brush or toothbrush, working Grout Colorant into joint using a back-and-forth motion. Thin, even coats should be applied, limiting the amount of Grout Colorant that gets on the tile. If going from a dark to light grout color, more than 1 application may be necessary with a minimum 2-hours drying time between coats. After Grout Colorant has dried 1 or more hours (never more than 12 hours), lightly mist surface with water and let stand 5 minutes. Remove excess Grout Colorant from surface of tile using water and a white nylon scrub pad.
