Jointex has developed the "Ceramic Extra Fine" jointing compound for use with ceramic paving slabs and products. The one component, air hardening, pavement fixing mortar is ready mixed for immediate use. It is permanently water permeable, resistant to high-pressure cleaners and prevents weeds from sprouting. This compound has been specifically designed for smaller joints of 2mm or more. Can be used when pointing the following outdoor paving products porcelain, natural, and concrete slabs. The neutral sand colour tends to happen used in lighter colouring paving joints but has been known to be used on black coloured paving to create a real statement.
Something to make note of when using Jointex or Rompox on a dark patio especially on a hot day we advise on using a lot more water initially. This is needed to cool the surface so it doesn't dry out too quickly as this can end up staining the slabs. The slabs we have found this to happen on is the dark slate paving and the dark granite slabs.

Minimum joint width now 2mm.
JOINTEX EASY JOINT can be used in two different ways:
a) First way (the traditional way )
1. Watering the surface
2. Open the bucket and empty the plastic back onto the surface that is to be pointed.
3. Using a hard broom or rubber broom, work the material in deep, firm and compact into the joints.
4. Brush away any remaining mortar residue with a soft broom diagonally to the surface.FINISHED!!!!No further equipment or extras necessary.
b) Second way ……NEW ……NEW ……NEW
1. Watering the surface
2. To achieve a better self-compacting result without a visible shiny surface, the area can be pre-wet with water.
3. Open the bucket and pour JOINTEX® EASY Joint / CET onto the surface that is to be pointed.
4. Using a hard broom or rubber broom, work the material in deep, firm and compact into the joints.
5. After approx. 10 minutes flush the material into the joints with a spray-like jet of water.< So you achieve a better self-compacting result > Sagged joints should be refilled.
6. Brush away any remaining mortar residue with a soft broom diagonally to the surface.FINISHED !!!!
This technique should only be applied to surfaces with highly water- permeable subsoil.
First technique ( traditional technique)
The surface can be walked on after approximately 6 to 8 hours and is fully load bearing after Approximately 3 days(Calculation: ca. +20° C and ca. 65% humidity )
Second technique new…..new….new…new
The surface needs a much longer hardening time. Approximately 48 hours (Calculation: ca. +20° C and ca. 65% humidity) High temperatures increase, low temperatures decrease hardening times. Clean used working tools with water or with usual cleaner.

Our standard method of delivery for heavy items is using the pallet delivery network. The delivery will arrive on a lorry with an electric tailift and a hand pump truck.
Access must be made for a lorry (up to 32ft) otherwise additional delivery charges may be payable. You must advise us of any restrictions that will impede the delivery vehicles from delivering the Products. The Products will be delivered to the kerbside outside. Our couriers are not insured to take goods onto your premises without permission. If you require the driver to come onto your property (at their discretion and deemed safe) with the wagon, the Products, or both, this is entirely at your own risk and if the driver or wagon damages anything (including but not limited to, manhole covers, tarmac driveways, block paved drives, flagged driveways / graveled or stoned driveways, grassed areas, walls, pillars, gate posts, gates, trees, hedges, telephone wires, lights) the cost of repair will be your responsibility.
Ensure that the delivery area is flat and solid enough to take the weight of a pallet truck carrying up to 1000kg in weight. Please note Gravel and Grass are not classed as solid and flat. If the delivery area is not flat the driver will require help in getting the pallets off the vehicle. If help cannot be given there will be a redelivery charge to deliver at a time when help can be given. If you live on a hill you will need to call us before you order to find out if our delivery company can deliver to your address. This is for health and safety reasons, usually the easiest method of getting around this is for the order to be delivered to the nearest flat ground.

Smaller items will be delivered via a parcel courier.

Remember when handling your goods:
Take care when removing the packaging / banding and also when removing the product out of the crate / pallet as they may have weakened during transit and could be unstable.
