EASYJoint - Before you start

Before you start

Joints must be at least 3mm wide and 20mm deep.

EASYJoint - Pre-soak

Step 1. Pre-soak

For natural stone paving, pre-soak.

EASYJoint - Pour

Step 2. Pour

Once the area is thoroughly soaked, cut open the bag and pour the EASYJoint onto the paving.

EASYJoint - Wet

Step 3. Wet

Wet the EASYJoint to create a slurry.

EASYJoint - Sweep

Step 4. Sweep

Sweep the compound into the joints whilst wetting it.

Make sure you work quickly and do not leave the EASYJoint in piles or in one spot.

Top Tip! It is easier to use EASYJoint with two people, one of them to sweep the compound and the other one to spray the water.

EASYJoint - Top-up

Step 5. Top-up

Use more EASYJoint to top up any areas and repeat the washing process as before.

Top Tip! In warmer weather, paving can dry quickly. Therefore, ensure paving is kept wet.

EASYJoint - Final rinse

Step 6. Final rinse

Apply a final rinse of water across the surface to wash off any EASYJoint residue and to aid the final compaction process.

Top Tip! Reduce wastage by saving any unused product by submerging it in 2 inches of water.

EASYJoint - Pointing

Yes, you can clean our paving joints with a pressure washer but it must be done cautiously and after the EASYJoint sweep in sand has set hard. We recommend leaving newly laid EASYJoint for at least 4 weeks before cleaning it. When you clean the patio hold the power washer at an angle of about 45⁰ degrees and using a fan spray from no closer than 150mm from the paving joint. For stubborn stains and dirty paving, use our EASY Care Patio & Deck cleaner - for extremely contaminated areas of paving, natural stone or garden ornaments use EASY Hardscape Cleaner. EASYJoint paving compound sets hard on contact with air but remains permeable. As water drains through the joints contaminants in the water will collect at the surface of the paving joint but these can easily cleaned & washed away, leaving the paving joint looking like new.

The recommended minimum depth of the paving joint is 20mm. It needs to be this deep to ensure the jointing compound has the correct strength to be a long-lasting paving joint.

The paving joint needs to be a minimum of 3mm wide, (what is described as a narrow paving joint) however care should be taken measuring this as with some, chamfered edge 'V' shaped paving, the joints at the bottom edge can be narrower than the top. EASYJoint is designed to be a narrow joint filler and is probably the best on the market. Note there is no maximum paving joint width, feel free to use as much EASYJoint as you like!

All projects must be on a free draining site. We recommend a 6:1 bedding mix, six parts sharp sand to one cement. At this strength, your bedding mix will remain permeable and allow water to drain through it. A stronger mix may cause the base to become impermeable and this will mean that water does not drain away. EASYJoint goes hard on contact with air, our EASYJoint needs to sufficiently dry out to allow it to cure properly. When using the wet method - the water is used to assist our jointing compound into the joints, it will self-compact and fill any voids. It also makes it easier to move around the paving and prevents staining. EASYJoint does not need water to harden but is makes it easier to use. If the area to be jointed is laid on a strong mix or suffers from poor drainage, we suggest using EASYJoint PRO as this is made specifically for these types of installations.

Simply on contact with air. Once the bag is opened, and air gets to it and the curing process commences. EASYJoint can be stored in the tub once the bag is opened by keeping it covered with at least 50mm of water and replacing the lid - it will keep for many months.

EASYJoint will not harden until it has dried out - if it stays wet it will remain soft. Heavy rain may disturb the sand grains on the surface of the joint. If the joint has been 'struck' or 'tooled' this process may have to be repeated to achieve the desired finish. EASYJoint will go rock hard when it is exposed to air and allowed to dry - this may take 3 to 5 days (depending on weather). If the paving joints only partially dry out on the surface and remain wet below, and are repeatedly allowed to get wet, partially dry out etc, over a period of time, the curing process may fail altogether. All projects must be on a free draining site. See our usage instructions.

There are three key reasons why using plenty of water with EASYJoint is essential. Water helps the user to sweep our paving compound around the patio, it also allows the compound to compact itself into the joints. There is no need to push EASYJoint into the joints, our paving compound does the hard work for you, falling into the paving gaps, filling voids and compacting. Lastly is contains linseed oil, a vital ingredient to create a strong bond in the paving joint however to avoid this oil penetrating the paving stone the EASYJoint instructions inform you to thoroughly soak the paving, this keeps the linseed oil 'floating' on the surface of the water, rather than penetrating the stone. It is important to note that linseed oil staining is only a temporary stain and exposure to sunlight, will over time, lift the marks.

No it shouldn't if used correctly by following our instructions, however there is always a chance that the Linseed oil will seep into the paving. Linseed oil is a vital ingredient which creates a strong bond in our paving joint. It is important to note that linseed oil staining is only a temporary stain and exposure to sunlight, will over time, lift the marks and fade away. Do not be tempted to use brick acid on paving, it will damage the paving and possibly the paving joint. Particularly sensitive, porous stone should always be sealed on both sides and all edges as a precaution.

No, the joints will be too narrow, we recommend a minimum of 3mm. The best solution would be to get it laid as recommended by the suppliers and to then protect it by sealing it with one of our specialised EASYSealers, either EASYSeal BCS or EASYSeal Contract. Both have sand binder in them and work in similar ways however EASYSeal BCS is the superior product and lasts longer.

When pointing a porous surface, such as Sandstone and Limestone, it is recommended to use plenty of water as this helps prevent temporary staining from the compound. Where the paving is non-porous, such as porcelain, less water is required. Water can also help the compound flow in to the full depth of the joint cavity and aids compression of the compound. giving you a stronger paving joint that will last. We recommend using sufficient water with EASYJoint to turn it into a slurry, it works incredibly well with paving joints of different sizes (minimum 3mm) - View the EASYJoint demonstration video and see how EASY it is to joint a patio using EASYJoint.

Yes, however only if used correctly by following the 'how to point paving' instructions in the EASYJoint tub or on this Azpects web site. We recommend that sensitive paving, such as Granite, Black Limestone and smooth Sandstone are sealed to protect from staining before using EASYJoint. Our sealers can protect against most common spills and are resistant to tea and coffee, red wine and engine oil, mayonnaise, vinegar, and ketchup etc. Look at the sealer comparision chart for help choosing the right sealer for you.

EASYJoint allows water to pass through it - it's a permeable or porous jointing compound. EASYJoint resists weed growth however, sometimes the joints trap dirt at the surface as the water drains through it making them dirty. EASYJoint can be cleaned to remove these particles by using a light pressure wash (see cleaning instructions).

Due to the structural requirements of a driveway and that generally, the bedding mix is stronger than that of a patio or path, the use of EASYJoint is not recommended.

For this purpose, we recommend EASYJoint PRO.

Yes, however, in freezing conditions or in falling temperatures below 3 degrees Celsius, please refer to the instructions.

Yes, we make it EASY. Pour any unused EASYJoint back into the tub and cover it with at least 50mm (2 inches) of water. It should remain stable and safe to use for up to several months providing it remains covered with water (subject to environmental influences). EASYJoint will always go rock hard as soon as it is in contact with the air, it does not need water to cure.

Providing it is allowed to dry out, YES! EASYJoint requires air to cure but water will stop this process happening. As long as it is allowed to dry out it will go hard. EASYJoint will not go hard if left in damp or wet joints that never fully dry out.

EASYJoint is a natural product, because dirty water can drain through the joint, over time the appearance may change, this will not affect the integrity of the product. The joints can be cleaned by the cautious use of a pressure washer, keeping a fan type nozzle, at an angle, no closer than 150mm from the surface.
Not in the sense that it will last forever, nor can we guarantee its lifespan. However we can say that its predecessors, earlier derivatives of the current product, have been in use for more than 20 years and where the ground conditions are stable and a good sub-base has been employed, they have stood the test of time - much longer in most instances than a cement alternative. The basic technology is sound and proven and in our experience it will outlive most alternatives.

No. Our instructions state that any sagging of a joint must be topped up whilst it is still wet (or has not cured). The problem is that if you try to top up a joint it will not bond properly with the existing joint and over time the joint will fail. We recommend the depth of the joints are kept to a minimum of 20mm, if necessary, remove the old joint and top back up with new jointing compound.

Yes, although it will make the joints less permeable.

Yes, you can use our jointing compound with porcelain tiles, in fact some specialist suppliers only recommend EASYJoint for jointing them! You must follow the instructions carefully when using porcelain tiles and depending on whether they are for indoor or outdoor use, be careful what bedding mix they are laid on. Porcelain is impermeable (it will not allow water to pass through it) so follow our instructions for use with porcelain tiles. If using the wet method, ensure that the bedding mix is permeable and made up from a mix no stronger of 6 parts sharp sand to one cement. To ensure a strong joint that will last for years the depth of the joint should be at least 20mm deep. The width of the joint can be as little as 3mm wide. Have you seen EASYJoint Select? A range of four solid colours designed to complement any porcelain colour, whatever your tastes are.

Some concrete paving is made in moulds and has chamfered edges creating a 'V' shaped joint between two paving slabs, wider at the top than at the bottom. This gap shape can be the most challenging to work with and we recommend you carefully follow the instructions below.

  1. Maintain the Width of Joint Throughout. Maintain at least a 3mm gap width throughout the depth of the paving material. Never have this type of paving butted together. See photograph.
  2. Lock in the Joint. An irregular “V” shaped joint means that any type of filler will have difficulty staying in place. To assist in forming a stable joint when laying the paving, draw the tip of your trowel along the bottom edge of each slab so that a small gap forms along and under the paving edge. EASYJoint will flow into the gap and when set will be locked into place. See diagram below.
  3. To further aid this, "point" or "strike" the joint; do not leave it textured. This ensures the top of the filler is below the top rounded edge of the paving and helps it adhere to the base and sides of the paving material.
  4. Do not overfill the Joint As with all types of paving, never overfill the joint. This is particularly important if the paving has a "rounded" top edge. The filler should be kept below the start of the "rounding". See diagram below.

EASYJoint Joint Dimensions

We recommend a full bed because EASYJoint will find and fill the voids, thus using more material than necessary.
