ST Enhancer Pro Dry Time ?

Just got done with 2 coats of Stonetech Enhancer Pro on my tumbled marble mosaic in the master bath.
Full cure is achieved in 24-72 hours. How long should I wait before grouting ?
After grouting it will get a coat of Impregnator Pro on everything.

Is there a product I can mix with the grout to help retard staining and water penetration? I am using a sanded grout.

Hi Jay -

Let The Enhancer Pro cure completely before you grout...the full 72 hours at least... you want to make sure it develops its full water repellency so it will work as your grout release... Impregnator Pro is a good choice over the installation after the grout cures and thats another 72 hour wait...
I don't know about a product to mix with your grout but there has been a couple of posts around here of products like that... The Impregnator will do a good job as a grout sealer. Saturate the grout a couple of times and wipe the surface clean and dry then let it cure.
