DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Preparations of the area:
Make sure that the tiles or the stones joints operation is taken up atleast 72 hours after laying of the tiles or the Stone. The joints should be dry, clean and free from cement mortar, adhesive, dust, grease etc.

Application
Apply masking tape on the edges of the tiles or to the stones joints are to be grouted in one direction. Clean the joints using a blower. Mix the base and hardener components and add the filler and mix to get a uniform consistency free flowing mortar. Pour the mortar with a mug in the joints taking care to see that the mortar does not fall on the tiles.
Gently tap the filled joints to evenly fill the joints till a sheen appears on the joints and leave to cure over night. Next day apply the masking tapes in the perpendicular direction and fill joints as explained above.
