Does tile grout need to be heated at a constant temperature before construction?

Nowadays, in home decoration, tile grout has become the most popular building material! Also it is inseparable from construction. Due to the temperature differences in various regions, sometimes problems will be occurred, such as solidification or glue flow. So does tile grout need to be heated at a constant temperature before construction? kelin tile grout manufacturer will tell you.

This depends on the environmental temperature of the construction. The tile grout is mainly composed of multi-molecular polymer and curing agent, which is greatly affected by temperature and humidity. Especially when the temperature is lower in winter, the tile grout will become thicker. If it is not soaked in water, it will be very difficult to operate, which will seriously affect the efficiency of construction. Therefore, in winter, the glue should be foamed before the construction. So what should we pay attention to for foam glue? How to do it?

 

 

Foam glue generally needs to be soaked in warm water of about 50 degrees Celsius. Put the head of the tile grout down and the base up. Be careful not to submerge the base to prevent water from entering. Soak for about 5-10 minutes, and then apply immediately ! Foam glue is only suitable for areas where the temperature is relatively low in winter, and it cannot be foamed in summer, otherwise it will be very thin. It should be noted that if the soaking time is too long, air bubbles are likely to occur when re-pressing the glue. Try to control the rhythm of foam glue and glue pressing.

 

 

Secondly, the storage method of the tile grout should also be paid attention to. Generally, it needs to be stored in a cool and constant temperature place. In the south, the temperature is particularly high in summer, which easily affects the normal performance of the tile grout. Therefore, avoid storing in the sun, which may cause glue flow or bursting.
