Ardex EG8 Plus Epoxide Tile Grout will prevent water penetrating into the cement based adhesive bed of glass tiles, stopping unsightly moisture staining showing through. The hardened Ardex EG8 Plus Epoxide Tile Grout mortar can withstand full loads after 12 hours curing at normal temperatures and is resistant to aqueous salt solutions, chlorine water, commercial cleaning agents, alkalis, as well as a wide range of dilute mineral acids. Please refer to the table on the data sheet for a full list of chemicals. Full chemical resistance is achieved after 7 days at normal temperatures.
Areas subject to extreme high pressure washing, such as abattoirs, should be grouted with Ardex WA.
Ardex EG8 Plus Epoxide Tile Grout is particularly suitable for use in swimming pools, showers, bathrooms, shops, hospitals, hydrotherapy and spa baths, sports centres and other buildings where high standards of hygiene and cleanliness are required. It can also be used as a floor tile/mosaic wall tile adhesive in areas where a chemically resistant adhesive bed is required.
Ardex EG8 Plus Epoxide Tile Grout is ready for immediate use and has a working time of approximately 60 minutes at 20°C. The working time is reduced at higher temperatures and extended at lower temperatures. It is recommended that the mortar is spread out immediately after mixing, as self-heating in the container will reduce the working time. Apply at temperatures above 10°C and no higher than 30°C.
This will depend upon the tile size, and joint width and depth. The grout coverage figure for Ardex EG8 Plus Epoxide Tile Grout is 1.7. Highly textured tile surfaces may require between 0.1 and 0.2kg/m2 of extra grout. Use the following to estimate the approximate grout requirements for square or rectangular tiles:- (all measurements in mm).
1. ADD length and breadth of tile together.
2. MULTIPLY result by joint width.
3. MULTIPLY result by joint depth.
4. MULTIPLY result by coverage figure (for EG 8 PLUS, 1.7).
5. DIVIDE result by length of tile.
6. DIVIDE result by breadth of tile.
The result is the material requirement in kg per m2.
