Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 13007-3 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 189, Ceramic tiles.

ISO 13007 consists of the following parts, under the general title Ceramic tiles — Grouts and adhesives:

 Part 1: Terms, definitions and specifications for adhesives
 Part 2: Test methods for adhesives
 Part 3: Terms, definitions and specifications for grouts
 Part 4: Test methods for grouts

Introduction

The characteristics of the construction products defined in this part of ISO 13007 have been developed to

accommodate the stresses due to the structure for which they are intended. Some special characteristics will

take into account the type of substrate and will also take into account that the grouts must resist degrading

actions of climate, etc. Many properties of grouts for tiling are mainly determined by the type of binder used.

Tile grouts are defined in different types depending on the chemical nature of their binders. The different types

have specific characteristics in terms of application properties and final performance. The relationship

between characteristics and the working conditions (dry or humid conditions, hot climate, fast setting, etc.) is

not given in this part of ISO 13007.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 13007-3:2004(E)
Ceramic tiles — Grouts and adhesives —
Part 3:
Terms, definitions and specifications for grouts
1 Scope

This part of ISO 13007 is applicable to ceramic tile grouts for internal and external tile installations on walls

and floors.

This part of ISO 13007 establishes the terminology, concerning the products, working methods, application

properties, etc., for ceramic tile grouts.

This part of ISO 13007 specifies the values of performance requirements for all ceramic tile grouts

[cementitious (CG) and reaction resin (RG) grouts].

This part of ISO 13007 does not contain criteria or recommendations for the design and installation of ceramic

tiles.

NOTE Ceramic tile grouts can also be used for other types of tiles (natural and agglomerated stones, etc.), where

these do not adversely affect the materials.
