1. Clean Out
Clean out joints to a depth of at least 10 mm (minimum joint width 3 mm). 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.
Pour the resin/hardener component (2 plastic bottles stuck to each other) completely into the bucket and start the mixing procedure. After mixing for 3 minutes add
approx. 3 litres of water and continue mixing well for at least 3 more minutes.
Moisten the surface. Porous surfaces as well as higher surface temperatures, require more intense moistening.
4. Work In
Apply the mixed pavement fixing mortar onto the well moistened surface and work it carefully into the joints using a squeegee. Application time at + 20 °C is approx.
5. Sweep Off
After approx. 10 minutes (at 20 °C surface temperature) 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.
6. Clean Off
Using a fine jet of water clean the surface thoroughly and then use a wet hair broom to sweep it off. No subsequent treatment is necessary. During the initial period a very thin film of epoxy resin remains on the stone surface and intensifies the color of the stone and protects it from dirt. This film, however, disappears from the surface in open weather and through abrasion in the coming months. Important note: Please take note of the information regarding the preparation of paving stones.
