Performances

Classification : Complies with CG2W Ar according to NEN EN 13888. Improved cement-based grouting cement with a reduced water absorption and increased wear resistance.
Cleaning resistance : 717 Eurofine WT is resistant against domestic cleaners with a pH-value of 7 or higher.
Consumption : 600-2.500 g/m², depending on the size of the tile, joint width and depth.
he following formula will enable you to calculate the required quantity of grouting cement per m²:
joint width (mm) x joint depth (mm) x joint length per m² (m¹) x specific weight (1.7) x extra expenditure factor (1.5) =……g/m².
Curing : Depending on the temperature and subfloor, the hardening to a low tension and somewhat flexible joint takes place within 1-2 hours.

Application

Application:
  • Multi-purpose grouting cement for the flexible and watertight jointing of ceramic wall and floor tiles, as well as natural stone and glass-mosaic in a joint width of 3 to 10 mm, on almost all subfloors, e.g. wood, sheet material, gypsum-based subfloors etc.
  • Not suitable as an acid- and heat-resistant grouting material.
  • For these applications and when wooden floors are directly affected by shower water, we recommend 703 Adhesive and Spout Epoxy or 702 Multi-Epoxy.

Working Process

Mixing ratio : 5 kg 717 Eurofine WT to approx. 1-1.2 litres of water.
Waiting time : After mixing with water wait for a few minutes, stir once again and apply the mixture into the joints.
Application temperature : From 5° to 25 °C (temperature of the surrounding as well as the subfloor).
Processing time : At a temperature of approx. 20 °C apply the mixed grouting cement within 60 minutes. Higher temperatures will abbreviate the working time
Processing time : Lower temperatures will lengthen this.
Curing : Depending on the temperature and subfloor, the hardening to a low tension and somewhat flexible joint takes place within 1-2 hours.
Storage : Store cool and dry in unopened packaging.
Shelf Life : 12 Months, in unopened packaging. After use close the open packaging well.

* The mentioned values have been established in our laboratory and must be considered as guidelines in view of possible variations in climatic circumstances, subfloor compositions and layer thickness.

Consumption:
600-2.500 g/m², depending on the size of the tile, joint width and depth.
he following formula will enable you to calculate the required quantity of grouting cement per m²:
joint width (mm) x joint depth (mm) x joint length per m² (m¹) x specific weight (1.7) x extra expenditure factor (1.5) =……g/m².

User manual:
  • For an optimal grouting of the tiles, the joints must be free from adhesive and/or mortar residues. In order to avoid discoloration of the joint as much as possible, the subfloor e.g. mortar or adhesive must be sufficiently dry when grouting takes place.
  • Tiles fixed with adhesive can be grouted after approx. 24-48 hours. Wall tiles fixed in the mortar can be grouted after minimum 4 days. Floor tiles fixed in the mortar can be grouted immediately. When using several packaging always use the same charge number. Following these regulations, drying of the joints will take place equally. Since at the same time a number of factors may affect adversely the colour, Forbo Eurocol takes no responsibility for colour deviations.
  • For a good quality of the joint the water/powder ratio is very important. Add 5 kg 717 Eurofine WT to approx. 1-1.2 litres of cool and clean tap water and stir the mortar for approx. 1 minute, by using an electric stirrer (approx. 600 rpm), to a smooth and homogenous mixture. 
  • After stirring wait for a few minutes and stir once again. Do not add extra water! Apply the mortar within 60 minutes fully into the joints with a grouting trowel, wiper or rubber trowel. Remove excess material immediately. 
  • Depending on the circumstances (temperature, relative humidity, type of tile and subfloor) the joint will turn somewhat dull after 15 to 45 minutes. Clean tiles with a clean and moist sponge. (Tip: when no mortar is left on your finger after touching the material with a fingertip, the joint is ready for sponging).
  • Moisten the entire tile work with a rotating movement with a light moist sponge blade and wait for approx. 1 minute. Through this the residual cement haze can easily be removed from the tile work. When using a sponge bin and sponge blade, roll this thoroughly.
  • Finish tight with the sponge; first sponge the tiles diagonal and next parallel to the joint.
  • When dry use a clean and dry cloth for the finishing polish. Prevent accelerated drying of the mortar (through warmth, draught, high absorption etc.) by wetting the joints once or several times within 24 hours.
  • After grouting wait at least 24 hours before walking on the floor.




Maintenance

Maintenance:

Taking care of the grouting:

For cleaning grouts and to remove any mould use a mould removal product. These products have a chlorine/bleach base and are especially suitable for the use concerned. Cleaning products with a chlorine/bleach base have a pH value of 7 (neutral) or more. These products will not harm the grouting. Some cleaning products, such as green soap, always leave a greasy film to which dirt can easily adhere. These products are also not suitable.

Removing limescale:

Limescale can form on tiles and on the surface of sanitary fittings in regions where the tap water is hard. Almost all limescale removal products are acidic products and have a pH value which is too low. These products will harm cement-bound grouting every time it is cleaned. Even when diluted, the pH value of these products is still too low. The level of a liquid’s acidity is indicated by a pH value of between 0 - 14. Liquids with a neutral level of acidity (such as tap water) have a pH value of 7. Contact the manufacturer if the pH value of the cleaning product is not stated on the packaging.

Forbo Eurocol Nederland B.V. recommends the following when cleaning tiles:

  • Only use a cleaning product in the places where limescale and other dirt is visible on the tiles and the grouting. Wet the tiles and the grouting thoroughly before applying the cleaning product. The cleaning product will then not penetrate so deeply into the grouting.
  • Rub the tiles clean, preferably using a non-acidic cleaning product. Work according the guidelines of the manufacturer!
  • After cleaning the tiles, rinse them thoroughly with tap water and dry them with a cloth.
