Surface preparation to carry out before application:

Before using GeoFix Paving Jointing Compound ensure that the paving to be jointed is dry and free from loose dirt, oil, debris and grease etc. it is essential the joint widths are a minimum of 5mm wide with a minimum depth of 25mm. deeper joints can be filled with dry sand or other materials to meet the required minimum depth.

 Application of GeoFix:

  1. Lay paving onto the base in accordance with the paving manufactures instruc­tions. Allow a minimum joint width of 5-6mm and a depth of at least 25mm.
  2. Carefully open the vacuum-packed bag and sprinkle GeoFix over the area to be joined. Work in small areas of approx 2-3 squared metres at a time. Once open the entire bag must be used within 1hr.
  3. Using a soft brush, push the GeoFix compound into the joints at a 45° angle.
  4. Firmly compact GeoFix with a pointing tool, refill and repeat ensuring a fully compacted and topped joint. Firm compaction is the key to the successful laying of GeoFix. Ensure GeoFix is finished slightly below the surface.
  5. After application, brush off excess with a soft brush, taking care not to brush out any GeoFix from the treated area. GeoFix will harden over a 2-3hr period.
