Question

Grout shelf life

How many months after purchase do I say the grout is too old to install? I had repair of 3 tiles and used the previous bag of grout.

But it isnt strong. it crumbles easily. Is there a remedy besides removing this bad grout and replacing it with new grout?

Hi Paul,

The grout products are good as long as they don't accumulate any moisture in the bag while stored away. The area that you've repaired may be experiencing troubles for different reasons. Did you mix the product with water or the grout additive? What type of adhesive did you use to secure the replacement tiles?

If you'd like to talk more about this project, please call us and we can provide additional help: 888-398-6595.

Thank you!

Question

I have an opened quart of Superior flexible grout admixture. Is it still usable? It was opened 4 years ago and has not been used since.

Hi NPG,

The Flexible Grout Admixture does have a shelf life once opened. Generally the material is still usable within 1.5-2 years. If you open the product and it has a foul odor, you will want to dispose of that product and buy new for your current project.

Thank you!

Question

I was sold Flexible Grout Admixture with my marble tile purchase to use with Pro Grout unsanded. Instructions recommend its' use instead of water but

notes "not recommended for marble". Should I use water? I sealed the tile 1st and am ready to grout.

Hello Lou,
The additive sold to you for the Pro Grout Unsanded is a latex additive that helps your grout cure faster and it also gives it some flexibility to help avoid cracking in the grout lines. If you sealed your marble already you will be just fine to use the additive with the grout.... you can always use water if you like, but the additive with help your grout in more ways than one! To answer your question it will be perfectly safe to use, but it is always completely up to you if you choose to use the additive vs. water. Thank you for your question!
