Natural Paving Products Ltd launches a new jointing mortar within its Pavetuf range.
Natural Paving Products has brought out the new Jointing Mortar to offer a wider range of colours and finishes within the Pavetuf range. Available in Gun Metal Grey and Silver Grey, the new addition gives a smoother, more concrete-like finish.
As a cement-based product, the rapidly setting Jointing Mortar is designed for trade landscapers, requiring professional skills and a minimum of two people to apply it.
The Joining Mortar is the strongest product of its type, with a strength of 49.6N/mm. The solid paving joints can be walked on one hour after application, and driven on after four hours.
Malcolm Gough, Natural Paving Products business development director, said: “The launch of Pavetuf Jointing Mortar means we can offer a much more comprehensive range of solutions for our customers. At the DIY end of the scale, the jointing compound is very easy to apply but takes between 18 to 24 hours to set, whereas the new jointing mortar requires a bit more skill to apply but dries extremely quickly, allowing our professional customers to get on with the job.”
Designed to fill joints 3mm to 50mm wide and 20mm to 200mm deep, each 15kg tub will cover between 7m2 and 12.5m2 depending on the size of the paving and joints. Suitable for use on paved areas that have been laid on a full bed of mortar, the product can be used with natural stone and artificial stone, porcelain, concrete, terracotta, granite, marble and clay.
The range includes two breathable sealants in invisible and satin finishes that can be applied as soon as the stone is laid, plus a variety of cleaning products, including General Cleaner, Deep Cleaner, Rust Remover and Green-Off Cleaner, in addition to a Salt Eraser that removes efflorescence and prevents its reappearance, and a Sand Crete sealer that also acts as a joint hardener, protecting against sand loss, weed growth, and staining.
