Answer: 
Mapei BuildFix Flexible Wall & Floor Grout Beige 2.5kg is a standard setting grouting material which has a maximum joint width of 6mm and can be applied to ceramic, porcelain, natural and synthetic stone. The full curing time is approximately 7 days.

Mapei Ultracolor Plus is a rapid hardening grouting material which is ready to use in 24/48 hours. It incorporates Mapei Bioblock and Water Repellent technology and can also be applied between 2-20mm joints.

Mapei BuildFix Flexible Wall & Floor Grout & Mapei Ultracolor Plus are different products with different characteristics and the colours do not match, therefore should not be used in the same application.

To prepare the grouting material mixing by mechanical means is essential to ensure all elements of the grout, such as polymers and pigments are fully and evenly distributed throughout the mix. We would recommend following the instructions on the packaging.

Flooring Type

I have a small cloakroom. It has what looks like a chipboard floor underneath the vinyl floor tiles I have removed. Less than 2m square. Will this grout be suitable & what adhesive would you suggest? Not sure if that would be classed as a "wood floor". I assume it must be a flexible adhesive & flexible grout?

Answer: 
For this particular application we would recommend the following. All adhesive residues and contamination to be removed from the surface of the chipboard. Thoroughly abrade the surface of the chipboard and prime using Mapei Plaster Primer 1Ltr (Product Code: 4261C) and allow to cure. Bond tiles using Mapei Keraquick Tile Adhesive Grey 5kg (Product Code: 86943) incorporating Mapei Latex Plus White 1.5kg (Product Code: 48884) additive. Grouting can be done using Mapei BuildFix Flexible Wall & Floor Grout 2.5kg.

Answers

Answer: 
The consumption of the grout will be dependent on the size, thickness of the tiles and the width of the grout joint used. To give a general idea of coverage for a tile that is 300x300x8mm with a grout joint size of 3mm the coverage would be approximately 8 for the 2.5kg bag.
Further coverage guidelines are available on the packaging of the product.

However if you require a tile adhesive and depending on the application we would recommend considering either.

Mapei Rapid-Set Adhesive Grey 20kg (product code 29634) which would have a coverage of approximately 5 square metres on a floor and approximately 7 square metres on a wall.

or

Mapei Buildfix Wall Tile Adhesive Off White 15kg (product code 5832C) which would have a coverage of approximately 5 square metres on a wall.
