MIXING

Ensure the paving is free from any dust, dirt or grease, presoaked and having all ponded water removed prior to application. To overcome any potential segregation that has occurred during transit, thoroughly mix the maxi bag contents before us.

Hi-Joint Mortar should be mixed with approximately3.5 liters of clean potable water, per 20kg bag of material, for 3-4  minutes to reach a lump-free flowing consistent slurry.

Do not remix or add additional water to the mix Only enough material which can be placed in within 10 minutes.

Pour the fresh mortar onto the prepared paved area and chase into all joints with a soft brush or squeegee. Ensure joints are full, allowing for settlement and remove any excess material with the squeegee once joints are full.

Spray a mist of water onto the area at all times to aid the cleaning process. When the joints are sufficiently hard (this could be as soon as 15-20 minutes) remove any residual material with a constant flow of water and a diagonal sweeping action.

STORAGE
