    Have a job coming up, around 200sqm of 150x150 non slip dorsets in a water bottling plant.
    Haven't used epoxy for years and was horrible stuff to use back then, what's the easiest user friendly gear available nowadays?

    @Plan Tec Tiling@Plan Tec Tiling what is the set time on the epoxy? As I was informed that another brand takes 48hrs to fully cure.

    I've used them all but still go back to Mapei Kerapoxy.
    I'll keep saying it; no matter what the manufacturers say (yes, you Kerakoll) it's still an epoxy and as such requires the same amount of completely OCD cleanliness when working.
    For consistent results and ease of availability, for me it's Kerapoxy first, Kerapoxy CQ 2nd and Fugalite Bio 3rd.

    You'll honestly need to allow the same amount of time on clean up, and oodles of white pads and sponge floats no matter what you use.
    If you go with Fugalite, then it's oodles of Fugasoap / Fugawash / Cellulose sponges etc...

    I did a whole bathroom walls and floors with Weber epoxy easy lately, once you do first area and get into a rhythm you still end up sobbing into your coffee and wished you did better at school!

    Done 150m2 of 60x60 porcelain with Mapei kerapoxy jasmine. 3 man team. One to grout, one on a buffer with lots of white pads and one to washboy two rows at a time. Used the Mapei cleaner sprays the next day. Good ish results. Bit of sagging in the odd joint but went over the next day and all in all was ok..... Can't say I want to do it again in a hurry though.... Lol

    But there are easier to use epoxy grouts than others. For me Kerakoll feels easier to use than Kerapoxy, and oodles better for my soft sensitive skin :rolleyes::p:D

    It hardens up to the point of being 'set' in the joint after around 2-3 hour's and I've found leftovers in a rubble bag fully hardened after 12 hrs

    Don't expect any of it to be easy, screeding a 200sqm fall into a drain ain't gonna be childsplay, just wanted an opinion on the easiest epoxy grout to float in and clean up

    Kerapoxy CQ - one of the greys. It's a little bit transparent which is ok if your joints are clean, but nice and soft.
    Falls to a drain? - clean up with loads of water and white pads and your laughing.
