kerapoxy black grout
In a previous post I've questioned black grout bleeding white when used as a water bowl, this week I picked up my Kerapoxy grout made by Mapei it is an epoxy(2pac)grout which the Mapei rep says will solve all my problems.
Well I used it last night and although it was very messy and sticky to use after a final clean up I was really happy with the look, until I went out 3 hours later to find the grout still soft, I was expecting it to harden really quickly and by the time I went to bed I had tears of frustration thinking 'I give up on water bowls!'( I'll add here it was $120.00 AUD for 10kg)
I woke up this morning and it is almost hard but still a bit sticky and where the grout is thicker I can push it in, like it has a crusty outer shell with a thick gum center. I was under the impression you had to work quickly with this stuff as it set very quickly, I am now hoping I'm wrong and by tonight I can be happy again.
Has any one else used this product? I'll ring my supplier when they open but I just needed to rant, thanks.
