Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my job Great colour. Anti-mould was important to me. Needed flexibility for wooden floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grouting Experience An overall good experience by following the written instructions fully. Made sure I measured out the right quantities of mix and water to do about 20 minutes of work as the mix will start to go off within 25-30 mins. I found 1.25kg and 300ml perfect. Grouted as fast as I could and did first sponge over after 15 mins. Then continued to sponge over and clean tiles every 5 or so minutes. Final wipe over after with a dryer cloth towards the end. The initial thought when sponging down was "what a nightmare" as the dark grout it was like chasing running Mascara, however it did mean I could see it and get a better clean than when doing white grout. Overall when dried I'm really happy with the finish. Now it's time to see how well the colour match is with their matching silicone sealant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tile Grout Quick setting so don't mix too much to start with. The colour is a little darker than expected but still suits the tiles so 1 happy bunny

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Woman tiling for the first tim I used the Mapei tile adhesive in grey to lay my tiles and finished them off with the anthracite grey grout. Sad I know but I weighed half the mix and added the water to a lovely smooth like mousse mix,I mixed it by using a large wooden spoon! The mix goes down really well, I used my grout float to get it into the 5mm joints. I wiped it off at an angle with a tiling sponge and left it to dry. Half an hour later I wiped it again,ensuring that it was all level into the joints. I left it to dry for approx 4 hours and then cleaned my tiles with cold clean water. They look amazing and the grout colour is a very dark grey :) I was glad I mixed half the bag as it does dry quite quickly so smaller batches if you are a novice like me.. I was also careful to gather up and surplus mix and spreading it over more tiles. The mix covered a 3 x 3.5 floor. Hope this helps empower us ladies to have a go!!!

What do I mix this with? I've been mixing the adhesive with latex and is this the same? I'm using slate with underfloor electric heating if this has a bearing on the reply.

Difference between this and 46020?

I am looking at Anthracite (114), and Charcoal (47) - both by Mapei - and have both bags sitting next to me. Is there any difference between this Ultracolour Plus and the Buildfix bag, and are the colours identical please?
Asked by: RB1080
Mapei Ultracolor Plus Grout Anthracite 5kg (68981) 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 Charcoal 2.5kg (46020) 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. The colour between Mapei Builfix Flexible Wall & Floor Grout Charcoal & Mapei Ultracolour Plus Anthracite are similar however from knowledge and past experience the final produced colour can be influenced by many factors, including mixing, water content, rate of drying, etc. Therefore coloured samples should be perceived as a guide only as to the likely final colour.

Would this grout be suitable for small slate patio outside porch floor about 3 square metres with 12mm gaps

Asked by: grandpajohn
Mapei Ultracolor Plus Grout Anthracite 5kg can be used externally between 2- 20mm on a patio application, ensure the slate tiles are well adhered to the substrate, sealed as recommended by the tile manufacturer and all joints are free from loose debris.
