CERESIT® CE 43 mortar has increased chemical and mechanical resistance and is therefore ideal for grouting ceramics on balconies, terraces and heated floors. Thanks to CE 43's hydrophobic properties (aquastatic effect) water drops remain in the shape of pearls on the surface without penetrating into the structure. Perfect choice for wide joints.Available pack size: 25 kg.
Tile edges shall be cleaned of any stains. Grouting can start after the tile adhesive has hardened and dried. Prior to application, make sure that CERESIT CE 43 does not leave permanent marks on the tile surface. Clean tile edges shall be rinsed with a wet sponge.
CERESIT CE 43 should be poured into a precisely measured amount of clean, cool water and stirred until it forms a homogeneous mixture, free of lumps. Neither rusty containers nor tools can be used. Wait 3 minutes and stir the material again. Depending on the amount of added water, the consistency achieved is suitable for grouting either floor or wall tiles or masonry.
Mortar with plastic consistency should be filled in the joints with a rubber trowel. After initial drying, tiles should be cleaned with a frequently rinsed and wrung out porous sponge. When joints dry too fast, they should be made slightly wet with a wet smooth sponge. Dry grout deposits can be removed using a dry cloth.
CERESIT CE 43 is used for filling joints in gres, ceramic, glass and stone tiles (with exception of natural stone and marble that are sensitive to discolouration), on vertical and horizontal surfaces.
The grout is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. It is particularly recommendable for installing tiles on deformable substrates: heated floors, chipboards and plasterboards, terraces, balconies.
Fresh joints should be protected against rain, dew and temperature drops to below +5°C until joints are completely hardened and dry.
