GEO-fix® Jointing Compound is supplied ready to use and does not require any further mixing or addition of any other materials. For GEO-fix® All Weather you just need to wet the paving surface and keep it wet during application.
Ensure that the paving to be jointed is dry and free from loose dirt, debris, oil, grease, etc. It is essential that joint widths are a minimum of 5mm wide (6mm wide when using GEO-fix® All Weather) with a minimum depth of 25mm. Deeper joints can be part filled and compacted with dry sand or other dry materials, to the required minimum depth.
All paving must be firmly fixed using an appropriate bedding technique to prevent settlement and movement which will have an adverse effect on the jointing material.
Where a “wet” fixing technique has been used to bed the paving the mortar it is recommended to use GEO-fix® All Weather – alternatively it must be allowed to dry before application of GEO-fix® Jointing Compound. Similarly if rain has occurred prior to application GEO-fix® All Weather is recommended – or the joints must be allowed to dry out before application of GEO-fix® Jointing Compound.
