Ask Bob. Studio Moderne Grouting and Sealing.

Studio Moderne 4″ 1/2 x 11″ 1 x 1/2 Ceramic Tile

Q: I am a subcontractor installing some of your Studio Moderne tiles with crackle, do you have any precautions I need to take before I grout?  Also, is it possible to grout the tile with  sanded CaulkRYH6?

Thanks, Tim

 

A: Hi Tim,

The crackle glaze surface of our Studio Moderne Ceramic Tile must be sealed, as do most all crackle glazed tiles, prior to grouting.  Just a light coat of sealer on the tile’s surface; don’t flood the ungrouted joints.  Following the grouting process, using a cementitious grout, seal the grout with the same sealer used initially after waiting 72 hours for the grout to fully cure.  Then wait an additional 72 hours for the sealer to penetrate and cure before the grouted tile installation is complete and ready for usage. Thanks for your question!
