I've used this about 4 times now on various tiles, what can I say, perfect grout! Id be interested in hearing other people's thoughts on it.

Used it on Metro's yesterday and it was a complete nightmare.
Went off to quick, and I ended up having to run a stick down the joint's to get the grout out.

Preferred the old stuff, personally I can't stand grouts that go off quickly.
But as they all seem to be heading that way, I may need to get used to it .:(

Not used it yet, if it is quicker setting I think I will give it a go.

That's the old stuff, Wayne.

It doesn't set particularly fast like ucp,M a bit on ceramics yes but it's no problem.

Ok bud can't get it local to me so wasn't 100 % but I found their adhesive and grout good which made fitting some rustic metros that bit easier would definitely use their stuff again .

It definitely does off much more quickly. Quicker than ucp. But as long as you plan your work, so what?!
Perfect grout for me. 10/10

It is better, the fact that it sets before you leave is a plus point compared to the old formula.

In winter/cold days - the old formula would still be soft the next day.

Another tip is to mix it up again once you think you have mixed it first time - this keeps the working time open just that bit longer.

I’ve just recently used the new formula recommended to me by pro tiler tools, i used the sandstone colour....very impressed at how easy it is to apply and wash off and open time was good too......dried out completely uniformed....lovely stuff......I used it years ago when it used to take forever to dry and never used it again after that but this new formula will take some beating!.....as said it does go off quick but not too quick but I was grouting porcelain, yet to use it on ceramic , willpost again once I have

If you mix it up in the bucket every 5 mins or so it takes longer to set , don’t add water just mix with gauger
