Questions & Answers

This says that it cures quickly. What is the pot life or usable time once mixed? I need to grout a shower that has 10x14x3/8 ceramic tile with 1/8" grout lines. If I make enough to do the whole shower at once will I run out of time? Also, if a grout line is partially filled and then I need to make more to continue will it adhere to itself once I get going again?
Asked by: KevinJ
How is grout girls answer below the custome building products answer and more importantly, why did they never respond to the multiple shenanigans callouts on their pot life. It would would be easy to test out and prove your right if thats how your company feels, that is at a an ANSI certified lab

Does the color darken once mixed?

I just received a box of Prism grout in the color 542 Graystone (marked on box and bag) and it looks lighter than I expected and is lighter than sample color on the box and website.
Asked by: Texan
We have tried two colors, and both dried much lighter. New Taupe looks like Chateau. We are switching to a different brand.

is prism sanded or non sanded

is prism sanded or non sanded
Asked by: homedepot1
I guess the answer to sanded vs non-sanded is neither. Product contains small glass spheres instead of sand, and was great for bridging the gap from smaller than 1/8" to bigger than 1/8" grout lines

Customer Reviews

Custom Building Products Prism #333 Alabaster 17 lb. Grout is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 320.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dont blame the grout, blame the installer. I have used Prism MANY times and while its certainly not my first choice in advanced performance grouts, it offers consistent color and strength. I have read many reviews and I see abunbant installation errors. If you follow the manufacturers recommended installation steps, your grout will be fine. The biggest reason for light color is not adding too much water when mixing (although many do im sure since almost nobody weighs their grout when mixing partial bags), its cleaning/wiping with too much water on your sponge. The sponges are supposed to be almost dry, wring them out until NO more water comes out. Next I have seen that people dont respect the fact that this is FAST SETTING grout and mix too much so they add water 1/2way through the bucket. THIS WILL RESULT IN GARBAGE GROUT. Do NOT add any water after the initial mixing. When the groit starts stiffening up in the bucket the ONLY way to loosen it is to take your mixer and remix at a slow speed. This will buy you some time, dont add water. When its too stiff to use anymore then toss it and learn your lesson not to make so much if you cant keep up w/it. Stop blaming the grout, its operator error.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got this Prism #165 Delorean Gray Grout to use on one of my mosaics. The color is a light to medium soft gray and is just what I needed to complete my project. The day I grouted my mosaic, the temperature and the humidity were very high. Normally I would have waited for cooler weather. However, the information on the box assured me I would get consistent, uniform grout color regardless of temperature and/or humidity. So I proceeded to finish my mosaic. I was extremely pleased with the whole process of using this grout and with the final outcome. It is easy to spread and it has a nice smooth texture which makes it simple to apply. It set fast, was easy to remove from the top of my tiles and cured very quickly. And last, but not least, the beautiful Delorean Gray color is definitely consistent and uniform regardless of the weather. It looks great! The instructions on the box are clearly written and easy to follow. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from mismatched bags of color in box I bought 5 boxes of driftwood grout.. after laying and grouting an entire home realized that the color was off in certain areas. After retrieving all of the empty bags and boxes I noticed that one stray bag out of the 10 bags was urban putty.. NOT driftwood. All of the boxes were marked driftwood, I never thought to double check the fine print on the plastic bags too. Now I have a home with mismatched results. Also, go 2 shades darker than the swatch for your desired color.. it dries MUCH lighter than you expect.

After reading about the problems that people had have with using the CBP Fusion grout, I decided to use Prism. I did have a problem with the grout hardening within about 20 minutes at first, but, after consultation with the CBP tech support, I discovered that that problem was caused by my use of my power mixer to mix the grout. My mixer is able to be set on a low speed of about 150 RPM, but the tech support cautioned me that the problem is that the mixer infuses too much air into the grout and the air was causing the pot life to be much shorter than the 60 to 90 minutes advertised on the box. After switching to manual mixing using a margin trowel, the pot life got much closer to 60 minutes, but I also found that trying to mix an entire bag (the box contains two bags) was just more grout than I could get down before the grout started to set up. In the end, I ended up mixing about 1/2 bag or less at a time. I was very pleased that the color uniformity was unaffected by using smaller batches. After letting the grout dry for three days, I sealed it using CBP's Aqua Mix sealer using a roller bottle. The sealer also did not change the color of the grout and a single coat was enough to completely seal the grout. I'm very pleased with the outcome of the project.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Charcoal wouldn't set We used this in our shower and it didn't harden, the color bled and I was able to scrape it with my fingernail. We assumed we used an incorrect amount of filtered water and tried again making sure to be exact. The second attempt was just as bad as the first and now we will have to scrape out the semi set grout and try something else. I would never recommend this product. Perhaps we have a bad batch or it expired (this grout had a shorter shelf life than most according the contractor information I found online - 6 month shelf life). Terrible stuff and I'm really looking forward to spending another weekend removing this crap from my shower walls.

I was on the fence for which type of grout to use because my grout lines weren't as consistent as they should have been...1/8" but plus or minus a but. This is designed for grout lines up to 1/2". Easy to apply when mixed to the recipe, with a reasonable working time. Once it starts to set up, you're done though. Liked the fact that the package contains two smaller bags so I could mix a reasonable amount at a time. Color was consistent, though a bit lighter than the sample was.

I've done at leat 6 tile projects prior to this one, using standard sanded and non-sanded grout. In comparison, this product sets MUCH faster. You have to work very quickly, and I wasn't prepared for that. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who isn't skilled in grouting. For experienced people, be prepared to work quickly and clean the tile very shortly after grouting. Having a helper would make it much easier.
