GinShiCel for Cement Tile Adhesives
Usage Comments

In general, with higher viscosity grades, the dosage must necessarily be reduced to avoid much-increased water demand and cement shrinkage-related weakness.  Conversely, low dosage means inadequate water retention for lower viscosity grades, leading to shorter open time and lower strength.  

Suggested Grades

GinShiCel MH 133-M at 0.25% to 0.35%

GinShiCel MH 336-X3 at 0.2% to 0.25%

GinShiCel MH 512-AX at 0.15 to 0.2%

GinShiCel for Tile Grout
Usage Comments

For tile grout, usually the particle sizes of the aggregates are very fine, leading to a generally high water demand, thus we cannot use high viscosity products.  Also, because grout has a much lower exposed surface area comparing with tile adhesives - during application.  This means that high water retention is also not needed. 

Suggested Grades:

GinShiCel MH 37-S fits this application quite well.  Recommended dosage is at around 0.2%
