Packaging, Coverage / Consumption

Packaging:

NEOFIL COLOR 0-4 is supplied in 10 and 20 Kg bags.

 

Consumption:

 100 X 100 X 6  0.4 0.6 1.0    
 150 X 150 X 6   0.4 0.6    
 200 X 200 X 8   0.4 0.6    
 250 X 250 X 8   0.3 0.8  1.2  1.5
 300 X 300 X 9    0.3  0.4  0.7  0.9
 300 X 300 X 10    0.3  0.5  0.9  1.1
 300 X 600 X 10    0.2  0.4  0.6  0.9
 400 X 400 X 10   0.2  0.4  0.6  0.8
600 X 600 X 12      0.4  0.5  0.6

 

For different size of tiles or width of joints, the consumption can be calculated using either of the two following
formulas:

 

Formula 1:

                W x D  x L x 1.9 = Kg. /m²
                 1,000

Formula 2:

               A + B  x W x D x 1.9 = Kg. /m²
               A x B

  

   W = width of joint (mm)
    D = thickness of tile (mm)
    L = linear meter of joints in 1 m² of tiles
    A = length of tile (mm)
    B = width of tile (mm)

Shelf Life & Storage

Storage:

Store in a dry covered place in original well closed packaging.

 

Shelf life:

12 months if stored as recommended.

Application Information
Instructions for use

Surface preparation

Make sure that the tile adhesive is totally set before applying NEOFIL COLOR 0-4 grout. The joints must be clean, free of dust. Clean the joints between tiles and brush before grouting.

Mixing

Measure 3.0 – 3.5 Liters of cold, potable water (or GIUNTOLASTIC instead of water as needed) in the mixing bucket and add slowly 10 kg bag of NEOFIL COLOR 0-4mm under continuous mixing till a uniform lump free consistency mix is achieved.

Application

After mixing, let the material rest for about 10 minutes, then remix and spread using a rubber grout float.

Let the product set for about 20 minutes and then clean with a damp sponge. After the complete hardening, clean all the surface of the tile with a dry cloth.

Cleaning

Remove excess adhesive with a damp cloth before it dries. Joints grouting between tiles may be commenced after 10 hours of tiling for walls and 24 hours for floors.

Recommendations

  • Do not apply NEOFIL COLOR 0-4 in rainy weather, high winds and sand storms
  • Do not apply on surface that has temperature less than 5⁰C
  • During summer season, working area should be covered to prevent the direct sun effects. Keep equipment cool and use a cool water
  • The product should not be exposed to moving water during application
  • Apply NEOFIL COLOR 0-4 when the joint is totally dry
    In case of very high absorbent tiles or high temperature, dampen the joints with clean water.
  • It is recommended to grout the joints after 24 hours of tile fixing.  Since temperature and humidity conditions affect the final curing, it is advisable to allow extended periods of cure when temperatures are low and/ or relative humidity is below 70%.
