EQUIPMENT

PRECAUTIONS

  1. Read label, SDS and technical bulletin before using;
  2. Wear gloves & eye protection;
  3. Ensure existing grout sits lower than the tile;
  4. Grout must be textured, clean, COMPLETELY dry & free from any sealers and coatings;
  5. Use when surface is between 4°C & 28°C;
  6. When using contrasting colours, more than 1 coat might be needed – allow 2 hours between each coat.
  7. If using more than 1 bottle of a single colour, mix all bottles together in a large container to ensure uniform colour. Check batch before-hand;
  8. Textured or porous surfaces require more care when 
    applying Colour’N’Seal. Check for staining and ease of clean-up before-hand;
  9. For Shower areas, use a moisture meter to help determine when the grout is COMPLETELY dry and ready to apply Colour’N’Seal;

PREPARATION

Use OxiTreat+ (for smooth grout to create texture) or XtremeClean+ (for existing textured grout) to prepare the grout joint. Rinse thoroughly then allow to COMPLETELY dry before using Colour’N’Seal. 

PROCEDURE

  1. SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING;
  2. Apply a small amount of product directly onto grout;
  3. Work the product along the grout joint in a scrubbing motion using a Colourant Applicator Brush or a kid sized toothbrush – ensure a thin even coat and limit amount of product on tile surface for easier clean up;
  4. Immediately wipe off any excess off tile surface with a slightly damp chamois or cloth or paper towels;
  5. DO NOT ALLOW TO DRY ON TILES FOR MORE THAN 30 MINUTES AS CLEAN-UP WILL BECOME DIFFICULT.

PROCEDURE QUICK GUIDE

LIMITATIONS

LIMITATIONS: 

Colour’N’Seal is NOT a waterproofing agent. Do not use in under water or pooling water situations or areas subject to hydrostatic pressure. Spills should be wiped up immediately to help minimise staining. Colour swatches on marketing material are only indicative and can vary due to printing and screen resolution. Colour and shade variation can occur depending on batch, job site, lighting, surface and surrounding conditions; 

NOTES

IMPORTANT NOTES: 

If Colour’N’Seal has dried on tiles then spray a fine mist of water. Allow to stand for 3-5 minutes then scrub tiles with a white pad (DO NOT SCRUB IN JOINT).
