Is this comparable to an epoxy grout, and with that said, how to you clean it off of tile immediately after application? ie: NEVER as in epoxy grout?

I had a professional install epoxy grout on wall tile. He installed as with conventional grout, and by the time he went back to wipe the excess grout off my shiny surface bone colored tile, it had permanently dried on the tile. Forever! I want a durable grout (the floor was done correctly and the upkeep was a dream!) but we're doing a small powder room floor ourselves, and want to know what I'm dealing with here.

Very sorry about your negative experience. The key is always follow manuf. instructions! If they are not clear, or you have questions, whether or not you are a pro, call the customer service help line. As to your immediate task - the powder room floor - surface prep is the key. If tiling over existing tile the floor MUST be sound. If not - remove! Any other flooring type - install backer (cementitious) and fasten until there are no squeaks from the floor when you walk on it. (Best bet - fasten the backer to the joists with <12" spacing of the RECOMMENDED fasteners.) Surface prep is always the key. If sub-floor is not completely sound, grout failure is a certainty.

Pre-mixed grout and epoxy are not the same thing. Epoxy is virtually water proof and stain proof and can be used in wet areas. Pre-mixed grout is not water proof or stain proof and it can not be used in areas that will be exposed to alot of water. The epoxy grout celan up is very different from traditional grout clean up and if your not familiar with epoxy you can get in to trouble with it. Epoxy dries Read More
Pre-mixed grout and epoxy are not the same thing. Epoxy is virtually water proof and stain proof and can be used in wet areas. Pre-mixed grout is not water proof or stain proof and it can not be used in areas that will be exposed to alot of water. The epoxy grout celan up is very different from traditional grout clean up and if your not familiar with epoxy you can get in to trouble with it. Epoxy dries much faster and clean up can begin almost immediately which is different from traditional grout. If you have an epoxy grout residue on the tile i would recommend using Sealer & Coating Remover by Aqua Mix to try and remove the excess. It sounds like you have a heavy residue so you may have to try this cleaner a couple times. Thank you Read Less

Answer: 
Assuming the grout is being used on tile applied over a wood floor... surface prep is the key! Apply cementitious backer board ( tile backer, wonder board, etc.) to the floor and ensure there are NO squeaks when traversing the entire area. Install the tile and apply grout, both according to manuf. instructions. Squeaks occur due to relative motion - ANY motion regarding tile guarantees grout failure.

Hi there jd,
I'll have to give you a yes and no answer on this because I'm not too sure we're on the same page with what this grout is used for.
Yes, in that if you are putting tiles over a wood subfloor and you wish to use this as the grout between them. This is made to be able to flex nicely if you are doing either a ceramic/porcelain/stone tile or a groutable vinyl.

No, if you are asking if you can spread this over a wood subfloor as an adhesive. If that is your intention, then you have the wrong product. You are instead looking for a thinset/mortar to use to adhere your tiles to. See the product linked below for what to use.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple grout Love this product no shrinkage color is always on perfect May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product,good pot life, easy to install. Couldn't be a better product. My only kick is the price, which to me is on the high side. BUT... I recall a builder's quote from many years ago: "The quality of an installation will be present long after the price is forgotten." And this product yields a top quality installation. December 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lokks great and easy to apply This was my first time applying grout, and it went very well. Pre-mixed is the way to go. July 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pre-mixed grout Very easy to use, cleans up well, and dries within 12 hours. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a good standard grout I love this stuff. It is premixed to the perfect consistency. It is easy to use, dries well and doesn't crack. It is a nice resealable container, and will last for months closed without drying up. Once you use it, it is easy to clean once it is dried and nice and durable. I am an artist and use it frequently in mosaics, too. For the mosaics I do, sometimes I hand mix acrylic paint into this product to give it a tint. By doing this, I have never had a problem with it weakening the finished product. October 5, 2009
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by grout used for shower over all walls works great , even ok for shower pans . allowed under water applications so shower pans ok . July 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No mess and easy to clean. This product better than mixing a bag of grout. I clean it with a sponge and water. Look great. April 29, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great Shortcut But.... Be sure to follow the instructions to the letter. EXCEPT waiting 4 hours to try to do a final cleanup. I went back after two hours and the grout was hard as a rock. I am not sure how I will ever clean it off. This was a mosaic tile circle in our entryway. As someone already said " is a fast drying product and they were not kidding. August 31, 2013
