Fields of Application
Geo-fix® is a quick and easy way of applying a permanent rigid joint on all types of paving including
- Natural Stone
Preparation of Substrate
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 with a minimum depth of 25mm. Deeper joints can be part filled with dry sand or other dry materials, to the required minimum depth.
Geo-Fix® has superior flexural strength compared to mortar.
Geo-Fix® should be considered for its aesthetic and not its structural properties.
Geo-Fix® is supplied ready to use and DOES NOT require any further mixing or addition of any other materials.
Carefully open the vacuum packed bag and sprinkle Geo-Fix® sufficient to cover an area of 4-5 m2 (see coverage table below) Using a soft brush, push the Geo-Fix® into the joints ensuring that they are filled with the compound. To ensure a perfect joint press Geo-Fix® into the joints with a pointing tool, or compact into joints using a vibrating plate. Top up as necessary. Any residue left on the surface when cured can be simply cleaned off by sweeping with a stiff brush.
Use Geo-Fix® within 45 minutes of opening. *
Protect treated joints from rain until fully cured. Any contact with rain and water before the compound has set will affect the product.
Do not use at temperatures below 0° C or in wet weather.
The jointing should not be cleaned until cured for at least 7 days. When cleaning the distance between any nozzles and the jointing must be at least 10cm.
* subject to air temperature – (see data sheet for more info)
