This product was amazing. No mixing and went on smoothly. Clean up was easy and we did it as we went along. We watched the video and followed direction and had no problems. We would definitely use this again. I love the fact that you do not have to seal it when you are done.

I bought this product to be used by a man who installed the backsplash. The color was perfect - just like the sample I viewed at the store. It was easy to use although the man commented on how fast it dried. I am very happy with the appearance and quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FormulaChris Worked Great
I've never used grout before on anything. I decided on Fusion Pro "bone" color grout and purchased it at HD. Later I noticed a lot of the negative reviews on here saying how the grout "never hardened", etc. I was a total NEWBIE at this process but I watched the how-to videos on YouTube, took my time, and it all worked out fine. FYI - I applied this to vertical shower tile.
Based on my experience, here are some tips:
1. Keep the surface wet. Lightly pre-wet the surface, apply grout with float until it just begins to harden, then use a medium-wet sponge and wipe off excess. This not only helps remove excess but keeps the grout wet. **The grout needs to be wet in order to harden correctly. **
2. Buy 2 buckets and keep them full of water. Have a helper rotate the water for you while you're grouting.
3. Focus on a small area at a time. I did roughly 3'x2' areas.
4. Use several microfiber cloths to wipe down tile after you complete step 1.
5. If you're doing a wall, lay down some plastic sheeting or cardboard to catch any excess grout that falls. This will help with cleanup later.
I can't speak to the longevity of this product as my bathroom project isn't complete yet. But I followed the steps outlined above and it looks great so far. Again, I'm not a professional installer. This is only my experience but I hope it helps!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lfay Perfect grout for our tile project
The fusion pro #52 single component grout was the perfect choice for our entryway tile project. Our porcelain wood-look tile had very tight joints and this grout worked easily and efficiently since it was ready to use straight from the container. It required no mixing or mess and the sealant is already in the grout! The end result is a beautiful real wood-look tile entryway which is durable and so easy to maintain thanks to fusion pro grout!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hdtvguyatl Nice grout, let's see if it lives up to hype
So first, I personally did NOT use the grout, my contractor did at my request. They were reluctant at first, but we had long conversation particularly about the application and cleanup. They followed the recommendation to pre-wet tiles, grout small areas then swing back for cleanup. No haze and the grout looks great. Let's hope the "maintenance free" aspect of this grout holds up as the though of sealing and such is not attractive. The grout goes about as far as the bucket says it will, maybe a little less. As with these new grouts you need to stay off them and no water for a few days. Since we are remodeling it will not see water for well over a week.

This grout was easy to apply right out of the bucket but it was little more dry than I would have preferred. While applying it crumbles up a bit so you have to work fast in small area's. Also, you have to wet wipe the surrounding area as you go to avoid a sandpaper surface as the thinnest area's dry quick. If you don't wipe those area's as you go the residue is harder to remove and will require scrubbing.
For my small job, I needed to "Fix" a poorly done area where the tiles had been pulled up and replaced due to other issues. In the pics you'll see where there was almost no grout in some spots and perfectly fine grout in others. I went over all of it with this product and I think it came out fine.
This product seems like a homeowner special more so than for contractor large scale use. I would recommend it for small DIY jobs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jammer Do it once. Done.
Ready to use. No time to mix, slake, remix as with cement grout. No part A&B and 90 min to finish everything before it turns hard as with epoxy. Spread easily on floors, trouble sticking to walls a little. I put down clean paper uder my walls so I could pick up the 20% or so that ends up on the ground when spreading vertically. Love that you wash it as you go, when a section is done, its done. No going back to seal it. I will say this dark brown will stain any light colored paint it touches for more than 20 seconds. I followed the instructions to a T. I am an experienced tile installer (was pro for 11 years) and the only draw back was that getting the tiles perfectly 100% clean took quite a bit of work. Glazed tiles were pretty easy to clean and just went back the next morning with a little haxe remover and water solution and boom, perfect. As for the the 1" white hex mozaics on the floor... lots of streaking. Theres so much grout on 1x1 tiles that draging the clean wet micro fiber cloth across as gently as humanly possible always resulted in noticeable brown streaking. After 2 hours set, I had to use a heavy solution of haze remover and lots of scrubbing with a white nylon pad. I was thinking I was going to be there till midnight scrubbing to get the stubborn brown staining off my unglazed porcelain tiles, until my sympathetic wife suggested I try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. OMG. I dont know what's in those things but it worked incredibly well. If only I had known of this back when I was a pro I would have stocked these in the van by the dozen. Made final cleaning a snap. The installation looks fantastic. No efflorescence, no shading, just smooth sandy looking grout joints that are hard and dense. I will use this stuff again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KilgoreAIA COMPLETE FAILURE OF PRODUCT AND ZERO WARRANTY SUPPORT
I am a licensed architect member of the AIA and builder in three states and focus on remodels of both residential and commercial projects and this is by far the most expensive and least effective excuse for grout you can waste your money on. We installed this in a custom Carrara marble tile shower and immediately found the Fusion Pro grout to fail with warm water. We re-installed the Fusion Pro four different times and followed the labeled instructions each time and it repeatedly failed, washed away. This product performs roughly equivalent to dry toothpaste and CBP accepts zero responsibility and offers zero warranty support for their failed product. In addition, Fusion Pro offers zero protection against stains. Do not waste your money and time on CBP and their failed products.
