Based on our experience, we recommend below a list of Mapei products for grouting and sealing CIFRE CERAMICA porcelain floor and wall tiles.
Before grouting the joints between tiles, wait at least 24 hours if a normal setting product has been used.
When a cementitious grout on wall and floor for internal use is required, the following products may be used:
High-performance, anti-efflorescence, quick setting and drying polymer-modified mortar with water-repellent Drop Effect® and mould-resistant BioBlock® technology for grouting joints 2 to 20 mm wide. It is classified as CG2WA according to EN 13888.

Pre-blended, high-performance, polymer-modified, cementitious mortar for grouting joints 4 to 15 mm wide. It is classified as CG2WA according to EN 13888.
For grouting floors or facade walls we recommended ULTRACOLOR PLUS; when KERACOLOR FF and KERACOLOR GG are requested they have to be mixed with FUGOLASTIC.
(indoor & outdoor): When high strength and high chemical resistance combined with a decorative attractive finish are required, the following epoxy grouts must be used:
