Geo-Fix® All Weather Application
Here’s our step by step guide to applying Geo-Fix® All Weather
Thoroughly rake out all the existing joints, removing all weeds and plant growth, including roots. If Moss or Mould is present treat whole area with a propitiatory mould or algae remover.
GEO-FIX® ALL WEATHER should be considered for its aesthetic and not its structural properties therefore all paving must be ﬁrmly ﬁxed using an appropriate bedding technique to prevent settlement and movement.
Wet the paving surface. The paving must be kept wet during application but free from standing pools of water. Failure to wet the paving surface will result in temporary staining. Ensure that the areas where you are not working remain wet at all times. This is particularity important in warm or hot weather. Sweep off any excess pools of standing water.
Carefully open the vacuum –packed bag and sprinkle GEO-fix® All Weather Jointing Compound over the area to be jointed. Using a soft brush, brush the Geo-Fix® All Weather Jointing compound into the joints at a 45° angle. Work in small areas of approx. 2-3 square metres at a time.
Once opened the entire bag must be used within 30 -45 minutes (*temperature dependent).
Firm compaction is key to the successful laying of GEO-fix® All Weather Jointing Compound. Fully compact the into the joint with a suitable pointing tool, refill and repeat as necessary to ensure a fully topped up and compacted joint. Finish the surface decoratively giving a smooth flat finish with a pointing tool then move onto the next area.
After application, brush off excess with a soft brush, taking care not to brush out any Geo-Fix® All Weather Jointing Compound from the treated area. Geo-Fix® All Weather Jointing Compound will harden over a 4-12-hour period (temperature dependent)**.
Once cured any remaining residue can be easily removed from the paving with a stiff brush.
