Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This practice provides detailed information on the handling and proper use of chemical-resistant resin grouts for filling joints of chemical-resistant brick or tile. For hand mixing, clean nonabsorbent pails or mortar boxes shall be used with paddles, trowels, or spatulas as mixing tools. For power mixing, a suitable size mechanical mixer operated at speeds so as to prevent air entrapment shall be utilized. Procedures for mixing and handling of resin grouts, setting of brick or tile into sand-cement or chemical-resistant setting beds, grouting of brick or tile, surface cleaning using steam or hot water, and curing for damage or contamination protection are discussed.
