Physical Properties
TEC Skill Set FreshTone Grout Colorant
Description  
Physical State Liquid
Color Available in bright white and almond
Initial Cure [at 72°F (22°C)] 3-4 hours
Final Cure 7-10 days

Surface Preparation
Allow new grout installations to cure at least 48 hours or according to grout manufacturer's cure time. Grout cure can be extended by environmental conditions such as low temperature or high humidity. For heavily soiled, sealed, or old grout, clean grout with a mild acid cleaner, or if acid sensitive tile or stone, use an alkaline based cleaner.

 

Mixing
Use full strength. Do not thin or dilute.

 

Application
Shake well before using. Test in a small inconspicuous area prior to complete application. Apply in small workable sections. Apply narrow bead of FreshTone on the grout joint. Using a toothbrush, or similar applicator, spread product evenly along grout joint with a scrubbing motion. While still wet, wipe off excess from surrounding tile with a damp (not wet) towel or sponge. When product is dry to touch (usually 30-60 minutes), lightly clean the tile with a damp (not wet) towel or sponge to remove haze. Changing grout colors light to dark or dark to light may require an extra application. Two thin coats are better than one heavy coat.

 

Drying Time
Depends on temperature, humidity and hardness of the grout. Generally a second coat may be applied after 30 minutes. Light foot traffic after 3-4 hours. Keep grout dry and avoid heavy scrubbing for 7 to 10 days.

 

Maintenance
Use a suitable neutral PH tile and grout cleaner.

 

Expected Wear
Up to 15 years. Unusually heavy traffic patterns may require periodic touch up to maintain uniform color and protection.

 

Clean-up
Clean tools, hands, and excess materials from face of tile, while grout colorant is still fresh, with warm soapy water.
