Ready-to-use, no mixing required; just shake well prior to use.


Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions before installation.  Rubber gloves and proper eyewear are recommended. SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING.

The Grout joint must be tested for previously applied sealers by applying a few drops of water to the joint. If water beads, a sealer is present and must be removed before application.  To ensure desired results, a small test area is advised, follow installation instructions and allow a minimum of 2 hours cure time.

Allow at least 7 days curing time for new grout installations before staining. If more than 1 bottle of a single color is to be used, mix the material together in a large container to ensure uniformity in color. Then pour a small amount into a dish or container. Using a bristle or sponge brush, dip into the stain and apply coats to the grout using a back and forth motion. Thin, even coats should be applied, limiting the amount of stain that gets on the tile. Allow the stain to dry at least 20 minutes, but not more than 30 minutes (time will vary depending on ambient temperature).

After SikaTile®-890 Revive has dried on the joint, dampen the area with water and let stand 5 minutes before removing excess grout stain from the surface of the tile using a white nylon scrub pad. The stain should be easily removed from the tile but bonded permanently to the grout joint. If stain is easily removed from the grout joint, allow longer curing time. It is recommended to begin by staining only 1 to 2 sq. ft. at a time to get a feel for the stain.

If going from a dark to a lighter color, 2 or more coats of stain may be necessary. Follow the above instructions but allow a minimum of 2 hours drying time between coats. 

After finishing the application of SikaTile®-890 Revive, the surface is ready for traffic in 24 hours. Keep the area dry for at least 48 hours. Avoid direct scrubbing on grout joints for 21 days to allow the stain to reach maximum durability. Use caution when cleaning tiles that may scratch or become damaged from scrubbing. Test for potential tile damage in an inconspicuous area prior to use.


Clean applicator tools with water after each use.  Dispose of empty bottles according to state and local regulations. The unused portion of SikaTile®-890 Revive should be capped and stored in a cool dry place.
