General Purpose Epoxy Tile Pointing Grout. 

A three-component, solvent-free epoxy, polyamide cured with silica aggregate.

For the pointing between acid-resistant ceramic wall and floor tiles.

Features & Benefits

Chemical and abrasion resistant, preventing degradation of pointing, eliminating entrapment of contaminant.

Colour

Indeterminate grey/brown (aggregate filler).

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be clean, sound and dry.

Mixing

Add the entire contents of the activator tin to the base and, without splashing, stir with a flat paddle until an even streak-free mixture results. This takes at least five minutes. Premix the silica aggregate to obtain even distribution of the various fractions. When using a mechanical mixer, place mixed liquid in the pan and slowly add premixed aggregate, mixing until an evenly coated, wetted mix results. Use this procedure also if manual mixing is carried out in a drum. All lumps must be broken down and an evenly wetted mass obtained.

Application

After applying to the joint by means of a pointed trowel, the surface of the joint can be smoothed by wiping with a clean cloth moistened with water or water to which a little liquid detergent has been added. Overspill on tiles can be wiped off by the same method.

N.B. This applies only to fresh, uncured material. Once material has cured, it is virtually impossible to remove.

Cleaning

abe.® super brush cleaner before dried/cured.

Protection on Completion

Against traffic and spillage until cured. Most epoxies chalk and degrade in extensive sunlight.

Temperature & Relative Humidity

See curing and service temperature in properties.

Model Specification

Three-component light-duty chemically resistant epoxy tile pointing grout.

Supplied by a.b.e.® Construction Chemicals and installed to manufacturer’s instructions.

Packaging

epidermix 307 is supplied in 4 litre and 8 litre kits.

4 l kit (includes 7,808 kg aggregate)
8 l kit (includes 15,6 kg aggregate)

Handling & Storage

All epidermix related products have a shelf life of 24 months if kept in a dry, cool store in the original, unopened packs.

If stored at high temperatures and/or high humidity conditions, the shelf life may be reduced.

Health & Safety

Wet epidermix 307 is toxic and flammable. Ensure the working area is well ventilated during application and drying. Avoid flames in vicinity. Avoid inhalation of dust and contact with skin and eyes. Suitable protective clothing, gloves, eye protection and respiratory protective equipment should be worn. The use of barrier creams provides additional skin protection. If contact with skin occurs, wash with water and soap.

Splashes into eyes should be washed immediately with plenty of clean water and medical advice sought.

Cured epidermix 307 is inert and harmless.

NB: When transporting liquids and semi liquids by aircraft, ask for material safety data sheet.
