Paving joint mortar with synthetic resin instead of cement

Synthetic resin paving joint mortars are, along with cement-based products, the most common choice when filling joints. Since paving move in most cases in construction heights, which allow sufficient flank adhesion, both variants can be used. Resin mortar eliminates the formation of cement film.

Mix and drop in quickly done

In general, pavement joint mortar is suitable in any soil construction with a joint depth from thirty millimeters. There are resin-based products in water-permeable and waterproof versions. The type of processing is very similar and is carried out in the same way as for all joints. A minimum joint width of five millimeters is usually required.

The processing of plaster joint mortar with synthetic resin is simple. The mortar is mixed according to the manufacturer's instructions with additives and water. After mixing movements of ten to fifteen minutes and several minutes of ripening time can be started after a final mixing with the application in the joints.

Fill joints by forcing

The grout is pressed by suitable auxiliary tools such as a joint iron after sweeping into the joints. This process is repeated until there is no more play when pressing. After coarse removal of the surface and the associated leveling of the joint surfaces, the paving mortar must set for about thirty minutes.

In the composition and properties, plaster joint mortar with synthetic resin must be well adapted to the site and the traffic load. The traffic loads are divided into three classes.

Light traffic load

Pavement on terraces, private garden paths with pedestrian use, house entrances. Paving joint mortar is also available in this load class, which can be worked in from joint widths of three millimeters.

Average traffic load

Rarely or occasionally paved with vehicles paved areas such as garage and carport floors, access and access to private land, high frequency of pedestrian use even with bicycles and strollers.

High traffic load

Public roads with vehicle movements, yards or land on which heavy equipment such as cranes, excavators or other machinery are moved and parked.

For dehydration requires pavement joint mortar with resin for light traffic load about twelve hours, in which the surfaces must be kept dry. For medium traffic loads, it is necessary to wait approximately one week to drive on the freshly grouted paving area.

Tips & Tricks

To prevent bridging or the formation of cavities in the pavement joints, you can achieve a "sludge effect" when the pavement joint mortar is penetrated by high water addition.
