Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maori Anthracite tile grout Great product with fantastic finished results. Perfect colour match to that displayed on the packet when dried. Would definitely use this product again, easy to mix, fast setting and easy to remove when dried on surplus surrounding tiles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not use in shower or bath a I bought this grout and used it it for the tiles in my shower after a few months I noticed that the plasterboard to the side of the shower was getting damp under further investigation I then noticed that the plaster board on the walls behind the tiles are soaking wet due to the grout not being waterproof. I contacted the company and was told that this is only water resistant and only waterproof if used in a bathroom that is fully tanked and waterproofed before the tiles go on (there is no mention of this on any of the packaging). I now have to either dig out and regrout or re-tile the whole area

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended We are currently carrying out repairs to our 166 bedroom hotel in Birmingham. We required a water resistant flexible grout that resists mould, having tried several others we found this to be the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inside and out Used this for natural black Indian limestone flags and looks great against the sealed flags. Used inside and out on the patio for a continuous finish through the bifold and couldn't be happier with the look. Only reason for the 4 on reliability is because I haven't had it down long enough to give a full verdict.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quick drying grout wanted a nice dark but not Black grout and Mapei have a large range of colours. Just remember it says quick drying and it means it. 25mins after mixing its going off. I found I had to leave it longer when sponging off, up to an hour otherwise it bleeds colour from the grout line. I was using light coloured tiles though. Gives a nice smooth line and comes off the tile face even when dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better brands There are a lot of options around when it comes to grout. I find so long as this is mixed correctly. it’s a very good texture too use, consistannt and durable. Drying times are good, long enough to work while applying yet being dry enough for light foot traffic in 3 hours

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good grout Best grout on the market. Colours are long lasting. And usually the bags are on offer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The good stuff. Having tried various grouting products I keep returning to Mapei. Good choice of colours, good colour retention when dry and easy to mix and apply. Can be used outdoors for porcelain tiled patios etc. It’s main benefit for me is it’s smooth texture when mixed ready to use. Other grout products can feel too “sandy” and don't produce the nice smooth finish that can be achieved with Mapei. I would always recommend a grout sealer is applied to the dry grout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage & finish Used Mapei Ultracolour to grout our new slate flooring, so anthracite was chosen to compliment and it looks great. I used just under 3 bags to grout an area covering 28 m2 and it gave great coverage, easy to apply and clean. I would not recommend using the sponge method to apply, much quicker and tidier using a special grouting float.

Maintain colour

Have this covering around 150sq/m space but it has very quickly gone to a light grey loosing the original strong anthracite. is there anything I can do or apply to restore and maintain the colour?
Asked by: chrisns
Unfortunately there is not a product within the screwfix range that we can recommend for this issue. In order to correct the colour of the Mapei Ultracolor Plus we can only recommend to 1. Carefully rake out the existing Mapei Ultracolor Plus ensuring a U shaped joint at a minimum depth of 3mm is achieved. 2. Vacuum joints thoroughly to remove any dust and debris. 3. Apply fresh Mapei Ultracolor Plus to the prepared areas ensuring it is mixed and applied fully inline with the Technical data sheet.

What is the coverage per bag for 5mm joints with 30mm depth on external limestone patio tiles?

Asked by: apex12
Based on the slabs being 600x400x30mm with a 5mm join, the coverage of a 5kg bag would be approximately 5 square meters.

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.

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.
