Product benefits

  • Glitter premixed formulated epoxy grouts avoid site addition of additive, resulting into uniform, high aesthetic joints.
  • Glittering effect is higher due to reflective filler & transparent resin enhances decorative and durable joints. 
  • Easy to mix with a creamy consistency which helps in faster application and ease in cleaning .
  • Available in attractive & decorative colors.
  •  High sag resistance formula and thixotropic-can be used for both floor & wall applications.
  •  Excellent stain & chemical resistance properties. 
  •  Very low in shrinkage and high crack resistance . 

 Weber shine armor is a two component, 100 % solid, glitter based reaction resin epoxy grout which is acid resistant. The glitter component is premixed with the resin base at factory which results into a consistent, uniform & highly aesthetically finished joints after application. The premixing prevents the inconsistency of mixing glitter at site. Weber shine armor is formulated with selective size of glitter along with reflective, spherical filler in combination with epoxy resin & polymer to allow the light to pass through grout itself to create a unique glittering appearance. It can be applied on horizontal & vertical, interior & exterior, dry, wet and submerged conditions in residential and commercial areas.  It can be used with ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, vitrified tiles, natural & artificial stone, marbles, glass tiles, glass mosaic tiles and granites, in different sizes of grout width.

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 8 : 1 ratio by volume of component A (resin) to component B (hardener) and mix thoroughly for 5 minutes with trowel or appropriate tool. Mixed workable grout to be used within 45 minutes at 27°C.

• Tools need to be cleaned immediately with water after the application, 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 need to be filled diagonally across the joints, ensuring packing is full 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 carefully to prevent 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 interval or when found water gets 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 shine armor can be cleaned with well squeezed clean cloth.

Mixing Ratio

  • Part A: Part B - 11.5 : 1 by weight
  • Part A: Part B - 8 : 1 by volume

 

 

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 year from the date of manufacturing, under sealed condition. To be stored in shed

and away from direct sunlight.
