While stirring, pour XXL Grout into a clean, rust-free container containing 28-30% by weight of water. Mix the grout with a low-speed electric mixer to avoid air entrainment until a smooth mixture is formed. Let the mixture to rest for 5 minutes, and stir again briefly before use. Use the mix within 30-45 minutes of its preparation.

Apply the product with a rubber spatula, directing across the joints, in order to remove the excess of the grout, hold the spatula at a 90° angle and pull it diagonally across the joints. Wait for the grout to partially dry (become opaque in about 5-10 minutes) and proceed with the final cleaning of the tile’s surface using a wet sponge and rinsing it frequently.
