About this deal

Applying the grout: Fill the joints with the Mapei Ultracolor Plus mix using a special MAPEI grout float or rubber squeegee, without leaving any gaps or steps. Remove any excess of Mapei Ultracolor Plus from the surface, by moving the float diagonally to the joints while the mix is still fresh. Finishing: When the mix loses its plasticity and becomes opaque, which usually takes place after 15-30 minutes, clean off the excess Ultracolor Plus with a hard, damp sponge (e.g. a MAPEI sponge), working in a diagonal direction to the joints. Rinse the sponge frequently, using two different containers of water: one to remove the excess mix from the sponge, and the other, containing clean water, to rinse the sponge. This operation may also be carried out with a machine with a sponge belt or rotating disc. When the mix is partially set, after 50-60 minutes, a damp Scotch-Brite® sponge or an abrasive felt disc may be passed over the joints to even out the surface. Do not use Mapei Mapesil LM for sealing doors subject to intense traffic – (use Mapeflex PU45, Mapeflex PU20 or Mapeflex PU21). To control the depth of the joint and to prevent Mapei Mapesil AC Silicone from adhering to the base, the bottom of the joint should be filled with a sized Mapefoam, a polyethylene cord

When Mapei Mapesil LM is exposed to the air, the surrounding humidity sets off the cure reaction and the sealant becomes flexible. The surrounding temperature only has a small impact on the cure rate of Mapei Mapesil LM, while the level of humidity in the surrounding air has the most influence. We highly recommend that the product is never applied if the temperature is below 0°C.

Mapei Ultracolor Plus Tile Grout is made up of a blend of special hydraulic binders, graded aggregates, special polymers, water repellent admixtures, organic molecules and pigments. Mapei Mapesil LM Silicone Sealant is a neutral, mould-resistant silicone sealant with very low emission level of volatile organic compounds (VOC), for use with natural stone and marble. When resistance to acids or, where extreme cleanliness or sterile conditions are required, use a suitable acid-resistant epoxy grout. When Mapesil LM is constantly immersed in treated water typically found in swimming pools its physical-mechanics may be affected prematurely. Given the wide range of products used to treat water and the actual quantities employed, its suitability over long periods may only be guaranteed following specific laboratory testing.

Excellent durability. Seals remain unchanged even after many years exposure to climatic extremes, industrial pollution, sudden temperature changes and immersion in water; The use of Mapei Mapesil AC is not recommended on highly plasticised material or on bituminous surfaces because of the release of substances that reduce bonding and penetrate into the sealant, altering the colour and resistance. Sealing joints between sinks or sanitary ware and ceramic tiles in kitchens, bathrooms and showers with colours coordinated with the grouts. Mapei Mapesil LM does not emit unpleasant odours, and comes in the form of a thixotropic paste. It is easy to apply on vertical and horizontal surfaces and cures at room temperature through the humidity present in the air to form a flexible sealant. Seals made using Mapei Mapesil LM are extremely stable over time, even when exposed to inclement weather, industrial environments, temperature variations or water. The product remains flexible over a temperature range of between -40°C and +150°C. Mapei Ultracolor Plus does not contain Portland cement and must not be mixed with gypsum or other hydraulic binders; never add water to the mix once it has started to set.

Sealing joints in wall and floor coverings of ceramic and cement, provided they are not subject to heavy abrasion. Thanks to the low modulus of elasticity of Mapei Mapesil LM Silicone, it is suitable for sealing internal and external fillet and expansion joints, including those subject to high levels of movement when in service, between: Pre-fabricated panels, window/door fittings and wall surrounds, pipe-work and vertical walls, similar and/or different types of coating materials. It is also suitable for sealing joints in doors with limited pedestrian traffic. Mapei Ultracolor Plus is suitable for grouting walls and floors in areas that are subject to intense traffic, such as shopping centres, airports, restaurants and other public spaces. It is also suitable for residential use in all areas, such as facades, balconies, terraces and swimming pools. Mapei Mapesil LM is particularly suitable for surfaces sensitive to acids on which conventional neutral or acid sealants normally provoke changes in colour or staining of the substrate.

Do not apply Mapesil LM Silicone on rubber, heavily-plasticised plastics or bitumen. The oil and plasticising agents in the substrate may migrate to the surface and compromise the bond or penetrate into the sealant leading to a variation in colour and mechanical characteristics. Application of Mapei Primer FD: Where the use of Primer FD is necessary, it must be applied with a small brush onto the appropriate areas of the joints and left to dry for several minutes to allow the solvent to evaporate. Then apply Mapei Mapesil AC Silicone. If the cleaning operation is carried out too soon (the mix is still too wet), some of the mix may be removed from the joints. If grouting is carried out in extremely hot, dry or windy weather, we Sealing joints between sinks or sanitary ware and ceramic tiles in kitchens, bathrooms and showers with colours coordinated with the Mapei coloured grout ranges.the joint is sized so that the estimated maximum extension is not greater than 25% of the initial width (calculated at +20°C); Mapei Mapesil LM Silicone delays the formation of surface mould. Mapei Mapesil LM generally offers good resistance to chemical agents. However, because of the wide range of products and service conditions, if in doubt carry out preliminary tests beforehand. Mapei Mapesil AC Silicone is a solvent-free, acetic crosslinking, mildew-resistant silicone sealant with low modulus of elasticity, available in 42 colours and transparent, to match the range of Mapei Coloured Grouts. After first having used a bonding enhancer, such as Mapei Primer FD, Mapei Mapesil AC Silicone can also be used on concrete, wood, metal, painted surfaces, plastic and rubber. Preparing the mix: While stirring, pour the Mapei Ultracolor Plus Grout powder into a clean, rust-free container containing 21-23% by weight of clean water. Mix the grout with a low-speed mixer to avoid air entrainment, until a smooth paste is obtained. Let the mix stand for 2-3 minutes, and stir again briefly before use. Use the mix within 20-25 minutes of its preparation.
