Grout Sealant, where to buy?

Post by Dieter78 » Fri Jan 20, 2017 1:03 pm

I'm re-grouting and would like to seal it this time.

Whats the best place to buy/import some? HomePro didn't have a clue what I was after.

Cheers.

We bought ours at Homepro. Green plastic, 500ml bottle, yellow cap. Top of label says COTTO, mid label it says FUGAPROOF, bottom of label it says MADE IN ITALY.

The Thai word for FUGAPROOF is ฟูกาพรูฟ in case you want to show this note to them at Homepro.

Great thanks! Will go have another look. Do you remember which section the product was?

Yes, that's it ! I'm looking at our bottle right now and the only difference that ours doesn't say Premium Quality :)

Instructions are all in Thai, but essentially, tape off the grout to keep the liquid off the tile or stone, apply the liquid sparingly, work it in lightly with a toothbrush, let stand for 15 minutes, then wipe away excess liquid taking care not to get it on the tile or stone. Let dry then remove the tape. My wife is frowning on the toothbrush part but I think it's a good idea, but she's the expert, she sealed all our grout :)

Oh course the grout should be completely dried, probably a couple of days, before sealing.

Perhaps Watsudu in Cha Am? I find more serious home improvement items there, or perhaps Global House in Pranburi
