Product Description and Features

Product Description

Weber pearl armor is a 2 component, high performance 100% solid epoxy based tile/stone filler which allows light to pass through the grout itself to create an unique reflective appearance. This is brought about by the special formulation with a reflective, spherical, granulated filler in combination with a hybrid transparent resin & polymer. Due to the translucent nature of weber pearl armor, various designs are possible with different colours of glass tiles resulting into a high luster & decorative & visual appearance of glass tiles. Weber pearl armor is thixotropic in nature with a non sag formula which can be applied on horizontal & vertical, interior & exterior, dry wet & submerged conditions in residential & commercial areas. It can be used with ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, vitrified tiles, glass mosaic tiles, natural & artificial stones and all types of marbles & granites.

Key Features

• Highly dense, even, compact and a smooth finish results into nonabsorbent, water resistant surface which prevents the growth of bacteria and fungus.

• Easy to mix with a creamy consistency which helps in faster application and ease in cleaning.

• Very low in shrinkage and high resistance to cracks. • Excellent chemical & stain resistant properties.

• Non sag resistance formula for wall & floor applications.

• High mechanical strength which results in long durability of the grouts.

• It can resist most of commercial cleaners which are used regularly for cleaning tile and stone.

• Two components pre weighed & ready to mix.

• Being translucent in nature, it can be used for fixing glass blocks and areas were background light is desired which cannot be achieved with a cementitious & resin adhesive.

• Very low in volatile organic compounds which allows it to be to be used in green buildings.

• When applied in between tile and stone will result in invisible grouts unlike cementitious and common epoxy grouts.

• High bonding strength with tiles and stones.

• High translucency increases the chromatic effect resulting into highly aesthetic and decorative finish.

• It can withstand heavy traffic and weathering conditions.

• No color shading even when used in wet and submerged conditions.

Usage

• For grouting of varied designs of glass tiles on wall and floor in internal and external areas.

• Installation and grouting of tiles and stones where high aesthetic and decorative finish is required.

• It can be used for application on surface where semitransparency is required like, fixing of glass blocks.

• Grouting & installation in swimming pools, spas, jacuzzis, bathrooms & public toilets and showers.

• It can be used as crack filling in between stone due to it’s translucent and neutral color.

Preparation and Application

Direction For Use

Surface Preparation

• The tiles/stones should be firmly set & the adhesive or mortar is completely dry.

• In wet stage adhesive/mortar to be removed from the joints to avoid contamination during grouting.

• Grout joints must be clean and free of standing water, solvent, dirt, dust & foreign matter.

• The spacers should be removed before grouting.

• The tiles/stones should not be cleaned with acid cleaners and all joints should be cleaned by washing with water/detergent.

Mixing

• Use personal protective equipment before mixing.

• Add hardener component B into the component A container and mix the content for 3-5 minutes with slow speed mixer ensuring proper mixing of the component. Do not prolong the mixing time to avoid air entrapment resulting in reduction of

pot life.

• In case of small quantity use approx 7 : 1 ratio by volume of component A (resin) to component B (hardener) and mix thoroughly for 5 minutes with trowel or appropriate tool.

• The mixed workable grout to be used within 45 minutes at 27°C.

• Tools need to be cleaned immediately with water after the application or the hardened material will be difficult to remove.

• No water to be added to the mix.

Product Application

• Spread the grout on surface with rubber grout float or appropriate tool. It needs to be filled diagonally across the joints, ensuring joints are filled to avoid any free air voids.

• Excess grout to be removed from the tile surface by pulling the rubber float or appropriate tool diagonally across the joint by preventing any grout removal.

Cleaning & Finishing

• Cleaning to be done 15-20 mins after grouting. Incase of any individual doing the application only grout as much area as can be cleaned in next 15 to 20 mins. In case of team doing application one person should do grouting and other person follow by cleaning.

• Always use fresh and clean water for cleaning and finishing.

• Rinse the scrubber with water and squeeze to completely dry, move the scrubber flat, lightly on the tile surface in circular motion for cleaning and to prevent grout removal from the joints.

• Do not use excessive water while cleaning as it will delay the curing time as well can create haziness on the joints, excess water if any to be removed immediately.

• Water to be changed at regular intervals or when gets water is dirty.

• During cleaning check for down joints if any and to be repaired immediately.

• Allow cleaned area to dry and use dry clean cloth for final cleaning of the grouts.

• No traces of epoxy to be left on the tile, once hardened it is difficult to remove the material from the surface.

• On smooth surface like glass mosaic and glass tile, weber pearl armor can be cleaned with well squeezed clean cloth.

Mixing Ratio

  • Use personal protective equipment before mixing.
  • Add hardener component B into the component A container and mix the content for 3-5 minutes with slow speed mixer ensuring proper mixing of the component. Do not prolong the mixing time to avoid air entrapment resulting in reduction of pot life.
  • In case of small quantity use approx 7 : 1 ratio by volume of component A (resin) to component B (hardener) and mix thoroughly for 5 minutes with trowel or appropriate tool.
  • The mixed workable grout to be used within 45 minutes at 27oc.
  • Tools need to be cleaned immediately with water after the application or the hardened material will be difficult to remove.
  • No water to be added to the mix.

Consumption

CONSUMPTION (Grout) :

  • Consumption depends on tile size and joint width.   
  • For example, for a tile a tile of 20cm X 20cm with a 2mm joint width, the coverage would be approximately 0.2 kg/sqm

CONSUMPTION (Adhesive) :

  • The consumption is approximately 5-6 kg/sqm for 3mm bed thickness

Note : The consumption will vary depending on surface undulations.

Shelf Life

2 years from the date of manufacturing under sealed condition. To be stored in shed and away from direct sunlight.
