For the preparation of Pool Grout mortar, pour into a container 8-9 Litres of water for 25 Kg bag of Pool Grout. Add the powder to the water and mix with a low speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle for 3-4 minutes, until a uniform, lump-free consistency is achieved. Allow the mixed material to stand for about 10 minutes and remix briefly with no further water to be added. It can also be blended manually for small quantity but ensure correct amount of powder to water is maintained. If required, add 0.5Ltr of Vetobond AB432 to the mixing water followed by addition of powder. Mixed material can be used within 1 hour. Do not add water to the mix, once the mortar adhesive starts to harden.
Spread the mixed mortar over the tile joints and firmly pressed with rubbing pad covered with sponge rubber spatula. Pool Grout mortar is spread diagonally across the joints ensuring that the Pool Grout is pressed firmly into the joints. Excess grout that remains on tiles shall be removed with same tool. After initial setting of 20-30
minutes, depending upon the ambient temperature & humidity, clean the tiles and remove all excess material with a wet sponge. After full drying, clean the tile surfaces with dry cloth or dispensable cotton towels. When washing & drying the tiles, ensure tile joints are not rubbed too deep. Pool Grout must be kept moist for first 2 days after application to ensure good hardened properties are achieved.
Tools and equipment can be cleaned with water immediately after use. Hardened materials will require removal by mechanical means.
All excess adhesive tiles that are at the level higher than half of the tile thickness shall be removed. All the joints should be free from dust, loose materials & traces of foreign materials etc. Neutralize the water absorption of the tiles by applying clean potable water. Do not leave water pooling in the joints.

Any skin contact should be washed with soap & water. In case of eyes irritation, immediately wash with copious amount of clean cold water. Seek medical advise. Pool Grout is non-flammable.
