ARDEX EG15 – COLOUR PACK?DESCRIPTION
ARDEX EG15 is a high performance epoxy grout designed
for situations that require strict standards of hygiene,
high chemical and physical resistance. ARDEX EG15 is
exceptionally easy to clean up during application. It can be
used in joints up to 15mm wide on walls and floors.
FOR GROUTING (TILE TYPES)
All ceramic tiles, porcelain and natural stone.
Note: porous, moisture sensitive and textured tiles may
require special application procedures, contact ARDEX
Ensure joints are clean and free from dust, excess adhesive
and bedding mortar. Do not grout until the adhesive has set
firmly. All ?spacers? must be removed from joints. Joints must
be dry before grouting and free from permanent dampness.
Prior to grouting, it is advisable to check ease of cleaning with
tiles that have a textured or matt surface.
ARDEX EG15 should be mixed to the ratios below in
parts per volume:
Part A Compound 2 parts/1L
Part B Hardener 1 part/500mL
Part C Colour Pack 5-7 parts/5kg
Only mix enough material that can be used within 30 minutes.
Shake well before opening plastic bottles.
1. Transfer the measured amount of compound (Part A) to a
suitable sized mixing container and add the hardener (Part B).
2. Mix the two components using a low speed mechanical
stirrer (e.g. electric drill) until a uniform mixture is obtained.
Smaller quantities can be mixed by hand in the manner
3. Add ARDEX Colour Pack (Part C filler) in incremental
amounts until the desired consistency and a uniform colour is
Notes on mixing:
A. Filler addition can be adjusted to accommodate site
conditions (e.g. ambient temperatures, joint width).
B. Coverage will vary dependant on the amount of filler added.
Reducing filler decreases coverage, allows more slump and
makes clean up more difficult. For wider joints, more filler may
be necessary to obtain a firmer, non-slump consistency.
C. To extend the pot life, spread the mix onto a non-absorbent
surface (e.g. plastic sheet) at a thickness not exceeding
15mm and begin application.
D. To optimise the workability, incorporate less ARDEX Colour
Pack Part C filler at low temperatures into the mix.
Apply the mixed grout using a spatula, gauging trowel or
caulking gun. Compact the grout firmly into the joints ensuring
they are completely filled, minimising the amount left on the
tile surface. Remove excess grout from the tile surface and
Optimum pot life, coverage and workability are achievable
when ARDEX EG15 is used at temperatures between 20-25?C.
The components can be warmed or cooled to achieve optimal
results depending on temperature and site conditions. Do
not apply in temperatures below 10?C or above 30?C. Low
temperatures will retard curing and high temperatures will
dramatically shorten the pot life.
The pot life of the mixed mortar is approximately 45 minutes
at 23?C and 50% relative humidity, when approximately
200mL are mixed. Warmer temperatures and larger mixes
will reduce the pot life, only mix sufficient material that can be
used within 30 minutes.?ARDEX EG 15 (Liquid Pack)
For best results, cleaning should be completed within 15
minutes after application. Grouting and cleaning 1-2m2 at a
time is recommended. Consult ARDEX for porous and heavily
Step 1: Remove excess grout from the tile surface using a
rubber grout float in a diagonal pattern.
Step 2: Using a damp cleaning cloth, gently wipe in a circular
motion and loosen the excess grout on the tile surface.
Frequently clean cloth in water.
Step 3: Using a damp clean cloth, gently remove any further
residue and smooth grout surface.
Frequent rinsing of the cleaning cloth reduces clogging and
prolongs its life.
Step 4: Using a chamois, remove any remaining haze from the
It is important to clean all grout from the tile surface before
the grout hardens. The initial cleaning can become very
difficult to wash outside of the material?s pot life. In some
cases a slight smear may develop on the tile surface after
cleaning. The smear can be removed 2-4 hours after grout
application by wiping with a clean sponge or open weave
damp cloth. For stubborn areas use a scourer. Clean residue
no later than 24 hours after grout application.
Open to light traffic after 24 hours, full cure and stain
resistance after approximately 7 days, after which time the
grout joints are chemically resistant, at 23?C and 50% relative
humidity. Allow longer for lower temperatures.
