Scentus Tile Grout Powder, which is manufactured on the basis of technical knowledge and using fully automatic machines in Iran, is an up-to-date product that is widely used. This product is suitable for sealing ceramic tiles, stone and brick facades mounted on dry and wet surfaces of wall and flooring.
- General Details
Scentus Tile Grout is a cementitious tile grout for the grouting of porous and vitrified tile on internal and external wet and dry wall and floor surfaces. White, grey, or coloured (please refer to colour chart). Recommended joint width 2 – 6 mm. Polymer modified for high performance. Contains special hydrophobic agents for low dirt pick-up. Meets EN 13888 CG 1 requirements. Designed for easy of use and high durability.
Technical and economic advantages of this product compared to traditional mortars
* Speed and ease of use.
It is easy for use and requires no special skill. It does not have to be watered and it is just to be mixed with water before use.
* High durability and resistant to humidity, heat, cold and extreme weather conditions.
* It has very low water absorption and hence increases the durability of the tile and the substrate surface.
* It is without shrinkage and will not crack after hardening.
* It has high hardness and high abrasion resistance resulting in no wear and tear due to traffic.
* Due to the presence of hydrophobic additives, it is not water absorbent and do not damp.
* It is completely compatible with the environment.
* Shelf life of the prepared powder is high. (at least 2 hours)
* Resistant to dust and contamination.
* Decorative and beautiful
The joints should be clean. Fixing mortar or adhesive should not rise over half the depth of the joints. Excess mortar or adhesive is removed.
TILE GROUT is designed for application on dry surfaces.
TILE GROUT is developed for both hot and dry and climates, and for moderate climate, and is applicable down to a minimum temperature of +5oC during the installation and for two days thereafter. Too strong sunlight and wind should be avoided.
TILE GROUT Fix is mixed with a whisk and power drill. Small amounts can be also be mixed manually. The water requirement is about 7 litres of clean water / 25 kg bag.
For joints wider than 4 mm a slightly stiffer grout is used by mixing with about 6.75 litres of water / 25 kg bag.
The powder is added to the water and mixed until the consistency is uniform. The maturing time after the first mixing is 10 minutes in order for the additives to dissolve properly. The grout is ready for use after a further short mixing during which the water amount can be fine tuned if necessary.
The pot life of the mixed grout is 2 hours in temperatures below + 25oC, 1 hour in temperatures between +25oC and +35oC, and 0.5 hours in temperatures higher than + 35oC.
The grout is applied diagonally with a rubber-coated float into the joints from different directions so that the joints are well filled and firmly pressed into the joints. Excess grout is immediately removed with the same tool.
The joints are allowed to dry, about 30 minutes for porous tiles and 45 – 60 minutes for vitrified tiles, depending on the temperature and humidity. A damp sponge-coated float is used to clean the tiling and make the final adjustment to the grout surface.
Avoid the use of too much water during the cleaning operation.
After the tiling has dried completely final cleaning is done with a dry cloth.
Note: Due to the risk of staining unglazed tiles should not be grouted with pigmented tile grouts. Use only basic white or grey grades for unglazed tiles.
Curing and hardening
Due to its composition and polymer content TILE GROUT normally does not need curing with water but in very dry conditions it can be cured with a light water spray one day after the grouting work is finished.
A tiled floor shall be put into hard service only after 14 days after the installation.
Tools and Consumption
Rubber-coated float (or a rubber spatula for small areas)
Sponge-coated float (or normal sponge for small areas)
Clean cloth for final cleaning
The tools are cleaned with water immediately after the use.

The AAC block adhesive is a pre-mixed mortar that requires only water to use. In this mortar, all ingredients are weighed very accurately and blended in a high-tech dry mixer. Due to the industrial production of mortar, in addition to its high precision in weighing, concrete and mortar additives are used appropriately to improve the technical properties of the mortar, especially its mechanical strength.
Scentus powder tile adhesive is based on polymer reinforced cement, due to the polymers used in the production; the tile adhesive is moisture resistant after drying. Scentus powder tile adhesive provides the ability to stick ceramic tiles on the floor and the body of halls, concrete and cement walls and tile on tile easily, while providing an impermeable and moisture resistant surface.
Using this mortar, there is no need for providing cement, sand and gravel in kilograms; while, decreasing required workforce, its quality is guaranteed. Respecting civil rights by not discharging sand, you do not create traffic on the streets, and while keeping public passages clean, you may prevent waste of building materials. Adhesive features and efficiency of Scentus constructional mortar are improved with polymer additives that increase the speed of application, increase adhesion and durability of buildings
It is a composite insulation made of two components: polymer and cement It is a rubber-like polymer and acts as a seal and cement, protecting the polymer and adhesion to the surface. This kind of insulators is a new and up-to-date product that seals the environment away from bitumen pollutants and insulators. This product is provided in white, gray or any desired color as ordered by clients. Colors are inorganic base and the product has at least ten years durability.
