Movement joints should be provided as follows:
1. Over movement joints in the background.
2. At a junction between different background materials.
3. At fixtures interrupting the tile surface e.g. columns.
4. At internal vertical corners.
5. Around the perimeter of the tiling system.
6. At a maximum of 5 metre intervals in a grid pattern.
Note: Movement joints should go right through the tile adhesive bed to the background and be kept free from dirt and adhesive droppings
Rejuvenation Grout is the perfect way to transform your tired wall and floor tiles.
Rejuvenation Grout can be directly applied over existing grout and tiles without the hassles of scraping, damaging tiles or breaking the bank. The revolutionary, ready-to-use, mould and bacteria resistant grout coating can be applied in just 4 simple steps to bring new life to your tiled areas:
1. Preparation - Thoroughly clean the existing tile and grout surface with either a mild soap and water or a sugar soap mixture.
2. Application - Apply the Rejuvenation Grout to the grout joint and using a float or squeegee, spread diagonally across the joint. Ensure you are filling the joint evenly. Only cover 1m2 at a time.
3. Shaping - After a few minutes, clean the excess grout off and shape the grout joints by laying a damp sponge on the tile surface and lightly wiping in a circular motion.
4. Clean-up - Give the tiles a final clean by wiping the tile surface in a circular, buffing motion, avoiding the grout joints.
