Construction Site Requirements: The foundation needs to be prepared according to the expected traffic loads. Future loads must not cause the surface to settle or loosen stones.
Preparation: Clean out joints to a depth of at least 30mm (minimum joint width 3mm). The surface to be joint-fixed should be cleaned of all impurities before work commences. Adjoining surfaces that are not to be joint-fixed are taped off.
Pre-wet: Pre-wet the surface. Porous surfaces as well as higher surface temperatures, requiremore intense pre-wetting.
Mix: Pour the 25kg filler components into the mixing tub and start the mixing process. Whilst mixing, slowly add the separately packaged components completely into the mixture. After mixing for 3 minutes add water according to the product package and continue mixing well for at least 3minutes.
Application: Apply the mixed pavement fixing mortar onto the well moistened surface and work it carefully into the joints using a squeegee/rubber slider. The mortar is poured out at three or fourspots within the jointing area in order to make best use of the fluidity of the pavement fixing mortar. Application time at +20°C is approx. 20 – 30 minutes.
Final cleaning: After approx. 10 – 15 minutes the excess mortar on the surface of the stones can be swept off carefully with a large, coarse broom. Then use a soft, hair broom to do a final cleaning until all residual mortar has been removed from the surface. The correct moment for sweeping, is when white smears no longer form on the stone surface during sweeping. Sweeping should be done diagonally to the joint. Do not re-use swept off material.
Subsequent treatment: The freshly jointed surface needs to be protected against rain for the next 12 – 24 hours. The rain protection layer must not be laid directly onto the paved surface thisis to ensure sufficient air circulation. During the initial period a very thin film of epoxy resin remains on the stone surface and intensifies the colour of the stone and protects it from dirt. This film disappearsover the course of time due to weathering and abrasion.
