Perflex polypro tile grout construction steps from 1 to 13. Each step describes clearly how to correctly operate and install. Let’s check out the instructions.

Step 1: Choose your grout color.

 

Step 2: Check if there are any damaged or cracked tiles, and plan your process if you plan on applying Perflex to any internal or external corners.

 

Step 3: The recommended minimum joint width is 2mm, minimum depth 5mm.

 

Step 4: Ensure that the joints are clean of any dust or debris. Adhesive should be fully cured and the joints should be fully dry.

 

 

Step 5: If required, use a scrubbing sponge to tidy up and clean the joints. Vacuum any dust and debris, and wipe the joints clean.


Step 6: Apply wax to the surface of the tile only, either side of the grout joint. This will stop the grout from bonding to the tile too much and also pick up any final bits of dust that are not visible by eye. Be sure that no wax gets inside the joint.


Step 7: Warm the tubes up in hot water (45-50°C) for 10-15 mins. Put the tubes upside down in the water, with the bottom of the tube out of the water to minimize the risk of water getting into the bottom of the tube. Hot water not to exceed 60°C.

We do not know where the tubes have been stored (shops, vans, etc) and varying temperatures can affect the resin, warming up eliminates any potential issues.


Step 8: Cut the nubs from the end of the tube, ensuring that they are the same size. Discard a small amount from the tube to ensure that both A+B are flowing smoothly. Install the nozzle and make sure it is fully locked into place. Twist and lock the nozzle all the way. Cut the end of the nozzle to the desired size. Discard the first 30-40cm of the mix to ensure a good mix.

 

Step 9: Apply a small amount to check your colour for a final time.

Use masking tape on a small section on either side of the joint. Apply the grout and remove the masking tape to check your colour for the final time.

 

Step 10: Operate the caulking gun at around 65° or more and apply with a constant speed, slowly and evenly filling the joints.

If using an electric gun, be cautious with the speed setting as too fast or inconsistent filling can cause issues such as burst/split tube.

 

Step 11: Finish with the press plate at an angle of 65-70° and maintain a steady, constant speed. The waste should be separated from the joint and form a track on either side of the grout joint. Ensure that the joint is smooth with no imperfections.

 

Step 12: The grout will cure after 3-4 hours. Once cured, use the scraper to assist with the removal of the waste, which will peel off easily.

 

Step 13: Once finished, check your joints and, if required, repair any imperfections. To confirm, do not start to apply the grout until the adhesive is fully cured and the area is dry. Moisture will be trapped and cause issues with the grout colour and appearance when it tries to escape.
