Pointing PreparationPrior to grouting the installation should be dry and the open grout joints clean, dry and free of residues. Porous or textured tiles/slabs may require sealing before grouting with a suitable impregnating sealer. If in doubt trial an inconspicuous area to check for staining and correct colour before commencing. Area to be jointed needs to be free draining and not hold water, otherwise product will fail. Wet the Paving. Absolutely soak the area to be jointed with water using a hose. The paving must be saturated before starting and remain soaked throughout the application process - in fact, the wetter the better. Do not shortcut this process, particularly if working with absorbent or sensitive materials such as Sawn Sandstone, Granite and many Limestone types. Particularly sensitive stone will need sealing, preferably before laying.
MixingNo mixing required, use product straight from the bag.
Application ProcessWork Quickly. It’s preferable for two operators to work together; one sweeping, the other using the hose. Using small quantities of EASYJoint, simultaneously spread and wash the compound across the surface using a light jet of water and a broom/squeegee, allowing it to fall into the joints. Never allow EASYJoint to stand in piles or allow the paving to dry with any remaining on its surface. Continuously Wash the Paving. The hose operator should alternate between following the sweeper to aid washing the compound into the joints and moving ahead so that the paving is always wet. This is particularly important in warm/hot weather conditions. Top Up. Use more EASYJoint to top up any low areas, repeating the washing process as described previously. Final Wash and Clean. Apply a final gentle spray of water across the surface to wash off any EASYJoint residue and to aid the final compaction process. Work conscientiously not to leave any grains of sand on the surface or the rainbow effect caused by the linseed oil. When the water has drained away, a “flicking” motion with a clean soft hand brush (not the same one used to apply the compound) will aid the removal of any loose grains. Smooth the Joints. Whilst not essential, it is strongly recommended to “point” or “strike” the surface of the joints with a suitable finishing tool. This will assist in checking for low spots whilst ensuring the joints are uniformly below the surface of the paving. It will also aid in keeping the joint cleaner for longer. Start once the paving has dried and the joints are drained, applying virtually no pressure to the tool - it is only to finish the joint, not compress it. Working with Porcelain Paving The same rules apply when working with porcelain paving tiles as with working with stone or concrete. The base on which the porcelain is laid MUST BE PERMEABLE. In terms of application, there is not so much need to use copious quantities of water with porcelain as the EASYJoint will not cause it to mark in the same way it can with stone or concrete. However, users will find that a small amount of water to form it into a slurry, will make it easier for the operator to fill the joints properly. Refer to the product guide for further information. Unused but opened EASYJoint can be saved for later use by pouring it back into the tub (not in the bag) and covering it with at least 50mm of water. The product should remain usable for a few months.
Cleaning ToolsWash all tools frequently to avoid material bonding to them
Cleaning During ApplicationAlways fully wash off the oil residue until you can no longer see a film on the water, ensure any material is swept of and no left to set on the paving.

Aftercare

Can withstand an occasional light jet wash, be careful not to get too close which could damaged the joint
