Will paint remover (Circa 1850) affect grout?


I am installing tile outside on my concrete front step, but they had been painted. If I use a paint remover product such as Circa 1850, will that affect how the grout (with keralastic) bonds to the cement?

Well of course it will affect the bond. The solvent will soak into the concrete and prevent a good bond.

We do not use grout as an adhesive. Grout is to fill the joints between the tiles.
