Mapei Ultracolor Plus Grout Cement Grey 5kg
Excellent quality product, consistent and easy to mix, with a good colour tone, but I would agree with other reviewers, it goes off very quickly, probably too quickly for application on a hot day. I used it on en-suite walls, with gloss white beveled metro tiles and am very happy with the contrast of the grey against the gloss white of the tiles. Beveled tiles are a pain to float (as they are not flat like most tiles), so when using this product i had to make up small 1kg batches at a time, and only just used each batch up before it started turning.

Did a bit of research on what grout to use in my kitchen,chose this one. powder mix seems the way to go and it mixed well. It does start going off after 15 mins so mixed 1kg at a time with 200ml of water which covered 2m x 1m. Goes on really well and dries a nice mid grey with no shrinkage and really hard.Really pleased I used this and would thoroughly recommend it. Excellent product.

Best grout I have ever used
I am a DIY tiler and needed something quick setting as it was in our porch. Mixing two batches for a 3.5 sq metre area gave me just enough time to finish. Looks dry when you first mix it but follow the exact proportions - mixed easy with just a wall scraper. Worked well into the gaps using a grout float and after around 15 minutes worked out the surplus with a vitrex tiling sponge (use a decent one with rounded edges). Easy to shape grout around internal and external corners using the sponge. Sets really hard like fibre glass resin. Best grout I have ever used.

Does what is supposed to
As you'd expect from this brand this is a good quality product. Sets quickly so once mixed you cannot hang about. Leaves a decent enough finish although I'd wished I had gone for something a bit darker.
Overall a nice enough product.
