Product description

ATLAS ELASTIC GROUT has been designed for the most demanding users appreciating aesthetics, functionality, safety and durability. New, broad colour palette developed in compliance with modern trends allows to adjust grout to individual taste and room character.
ATLAS ELASTIC GROUT ensures:
- high resistance to UV radiation, atmospheric conditions, rubbing and dirt – grout preserves durable and intensive colours over the years owing to the use of specially selected inorganic pigments,
- improved resistance to micro-scratches and cracks during operation – owing to the content of properly selected aggregates and mixture of cement,
grouting tight joints from 1 up to 7 mm wide,
- high resistance to washing, scrubbing and abrasion as well as to cleaning agents - grout maintenance is easy during the whole period of operation.

Main properties

    - for any size and type of tiles - perfectly smooth surfaces, facilitates keeping cleanliness - particularly recommended on difficult substrates, e.g. terraces, balconies and floor heating systems - for use in residential, service, commercial and public access buildings

Main parameters

  • consumption: 0.35 kg / m²/ 3 mm for 30 x 30 cm tiles
  • joint thickness: 1 - 7 mm

PROPERTIES

Go top
GUARANTEED COLOUR  – durable and intensive colours for years owing to the content of pigments of high resistance to UV radiation.
PEARL EFFECT – 3 times decreased water permeability - the use of structural and coat hydrophobic additives protects the surface against penetration of dirt and discolouration resulting from use.
MYCO PROTECT –protects the grout against development of fungi, mould and algae.
Contains silver ions Ag+.
8 times increased mechanical resistance – even to medium and high operational loads, including intensive cladding use, frequent scrubbing and abrasion (higher than required in the European standard).
Wide range of use – for any cladding on any substrate type, indoors and outdoors. Recommended for dry, damp and wet rooms, on floor heating systems and deformable substrates.
Improved adhesion to tile edges – strong bonding to edges of various types of tiles, incl. ceramic, stone and glass ones, even in case of high cladding thermal deformations.
Produces smooth surface.

GROUTING

Go top
Substrate preparation
Grouting can start only when the adhesive sets, not earlier than 24 hours since fixing the tiles. In case of use of ATLAS MIG 2 or ATLAS PLUS EXPRESS adhesive, grouting can begin after 4 hours. Carefully clean the joints between tiles. The joints should be of even depth - while fixing tiles, remove excessive adhesive immediately. Directly before grouting, clean surface with moistened sponge and moisten slightly the joints in order to unify and limit the substrate absorptiveness.
Mortar preparation
Pour the mortar from the bag into a container with suitable amount of water (see Technical Data for ratio) and mix until homogenous. Mixing can be carried out manually or mechanically. The mortar can be used after 5 minutes and remixing. It should be used up within 2 hours.
Grouting
Apply the mortar deep and tight into the joints with the use of a rubber float. Lead the float diagonally to the edges of tiles at an angle of ca. 45° to the tiles surface.
Cleaning
Cleaning can be carried out after 10 - 30 minutes. Use damp, hard sponges with larger pores. The grout should be protected against rapid drying.  In order to preserve optimum setting conditions for the grout, the fresh joints should be kept slightly moist, e.g. by sprinkling and washing the surface with clean water. For at least 3 days, the mortar must not be exposed to precipitation, low temperatures (below +5 °C) and high air humidity. The actual colour of grout is set after drying, after approx. 2 - 3 days.
Cladding use
Foot traffic is possible after 24 hours since grouting. As an additional protection against soiling, it is recommended (when the grout dries completely, i.e. after approx. 2 weeks) to apply ATLAS IMPREGNATING SEALER FOR GROUTS AND TILES agent.

CONSUMPTION

Go top
The grout consumption depends on the width and the depth of the joints and the type and size of the tiles. It can be calculated for a given surface according to the formula:
z = (a1 + a2)/a1•a2 x S x b x c  x g
z – amount of grout needed [kg]
a1 and a2 – tile length and width [m]
S – surface to be grouted
b – joint depth [m]
c – joint width [m]
g – grout density [kg/m³] – for ATLAS ELASTIC GROUT g = 1650

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Go top
• In order to avoid various colour shades, it is recommended to use grout of the same manufacturing date and the same batch number for each individual surface.
• Before grouting the whole cladding, carry out test application on a small fragment (best on a waste piece of tile) and test cleaning in order to eliminate the tile discolouration.
• Silicones and grouts are manufactured on the basis of different types of binders, therefore differ in the degree of smoothness and gloss. These factors naturally influence the colour shade  of each product type.
• Addition of inappropriate amount of water to the mortar can cause deterioration of its quality and lead to discolouration.
• The differences in the depth of joints or washing the tiles too early may cause uneven colour shade on the grout surface.
• In joints located in particular parts of cladding (internal and external corners, expansion joints), the finishing beads, e.g. ATLAS EDGE TRIMS, or filling with permanently elastic materials, e.g. ATLAS sanitary silicone, should be applied.
• The tools must be cleaned with clean water directly after use. Difficult to remove residues of the set adhesive can be removed with ATLAS SZOP agent.
• Water reservoirs designated for drinking water should be washed with water after the product ageing.
• The colour shown on the package front has a view character. Due to difference in technologies used in polygraphy and construction any differences between shades of a particular product colour and its simulation shown on the package does not constitute the basis for any claims against the editor as well as ATLAS. The particular colour shade depends on its texture homogeneity, conditions of use, substrate and ambient conditions as well as lighting conditions. The actual colour shade may to some extent differ from the one shown on the label.  Use the grout of the same manufacturing date and the same batch number for each individual surface.
• Contains cement, 2-Octyl-2H-isothiazolin-3-one. May cause respiratory irritation. Causes skin irritation. Causes serious eye damage. May cause an allergic skin reaction. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid breathing dust. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection. IF ON SKIN (or hair): Remove/Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/ shower. If skin irritation or a rash occurs: Get medical advice/attention. IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses if present and easy to do – continue rinsing. Follow the instructions of the Safety Data Sheet.
• The mortar must be transported and stored in tightly sealed bags, in dry conditions (most preferably on pallets). Protect against humidity. Shelf life in conditions as specified is 24 months from the production date shown on the packaging. Content of soluble chromium (VI) in ready-to-use mix - ≤ 0.0002%.
