About this deal
I wondered if you had had chance to read this? It’s been a few months now and big chunks of it have now come out, despite it my using a finger trowel and compacting (more than they suggest, which I did think was the same amount of work as normal grout?!) when i did that i found they never put any drainage in chich can cause it to never set hard if it is always wet Anyways after that I tried to brush it in but the gaps were so small (5-7 mm wide) So i had to use marigold glove and Pokey Pokey method :¬)
Sika FastFix can be used for a range of applications including foot paths, stone setts, cobbles and Indian sandstone Hi Helen, although you are suppose to wet the area before applying the paving jointing compound, it does eventually harden either way. Unfortunately, whether you use a mortar mix or the jointing compound for your pointing, jetwashing your patio always runs the risk of blasting some out.The compound went in a week ago today. No amount of stiff brushing or scrubbing with washing up liquid since has shifted it so far. Sadly it looks a bit of a mess in places and yet I know the builders followed the instructions carefully. Another downside is that the residue left over is hard to sweep off the paving slabs even with the stiffest of brushes. The next day you will see the product lightly covering areas of the patio. We have found that this is easier to brush off after a couple of days. My thoughts on the Sika all weather jointing compound Welcome to Hankintech!

Using a hose we soaked the area that we would be applying the product and started to pour the bag of Sika joint compound. Unsure on how strong the compound is we decided to use our fingers (wearing gloves of course) to really push the product into the gaps before finishing it off with a pointing trowel for a good finish. Of course, we didn’t have to use our fingers, but it gave us more peace of mind knowing that it was well compacted and still saved us a huge amount of time compared to using sand and cement.Hi Kim, I once layed an Indian sandstone drive and we used a wet mortar mix (sand and cement) as we were unsure on the durability of the paving compound. I thought I had done it as the instructions stated so not that happy that it’s done this. Some areas that seemed fine have all come up since we had rain.
I’ve not experienced anything such as changing the colour of the paving slabs and I wouldn’t have thought it could as it uses a resin as opposed to cement…but then who knows! Although the sandy affect could be the jointing compound still left on the patio, even if it looks like none is there. It can be hard to get it all off!Hi Paul and thank you for your comment. We are still using it with no problems as of yet…fingers crossed!
