Color Guard Grout Stain

SGM Color Guard Grout Stain is a unique concept in grout and concrete coatings. SGM Color Guard Grout Stain comes available in thirty-two (32) standard SGM colors and is formulated to sink deeply into pores. This coats the aggregate and leaves the coloring below the wearing surface. It dries to a matte finish, maintaining the granular appearance of grout and providing a glare-free, non-skid, uniform color. SGM Color Guard Grout Stain is highly resistant to wear, sunlight, water, and extreme temperature

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Easy Clean Up
  • High Bond Strength

PREPARATION

Surfaces should be in good condition, free from all alkali, moisture, sealers, waxes, dirt or any other foreign materials that would interfere with a good bond. For best results, clean surface with SGM Safe Clean Crystals, followed by a wet scrubbing and flooding with water. Thoroughly, dry surface before application of Color Guard Grout Stain. New grout and concrete surfaces must be thoroughly cured before applying the stain.

  • CAUTION: Consult manufacturer of ceramic tile products for compatibility of acid cleaners with their products.

WARNING

Avoid prolonged contact with skin, breathing of dust, vapors, and/or spray mist. Avoid contact with eyes. USE WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION. Ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. If you experience eye watering, headache, or dizziness, or if air monitoring demonstrates vapor/mist levels are above applicable limits, wear an appropriate, properly fitted respirator (NIOSH-approved), during and after application. Follow the respirator manufacturer’s directions for respirator use. Use chemical safety glasses, goggles, or a face shield for proper eye protection. Wash thoroughly after handling, and before eating or smoking. KEEP FROM FREEZING. Close container after each use. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY. Refer to the Safety Data Sheet (SDS). KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

APPLICATION

All attempts using Color Guard Grout Stain should be done in an inconspicuous area to test the color compatibility of surface area, application and clean up time. Stir thoroughly and re-mix during application. For grouting applications, apply with a narrow brush using even coats brushing well into the surface. Care should be used in keeping Color Guard Grout Stain off of the tile as much as possible. Narrow grout joints in glazed or porcelain tiles can be applied using a short-napped roller, taking care to clean the tile immediately. If a second coat is necessary, allow thorough drying time between coats. For concrete surfaces apply using a ¾ inch lamb’s wool roller to the entire surface to be stained.
