How do I mix Flowpoint Smooth?
- Thoroughly clean the paving slab surfaces and joints so they are free from debris and any ponded water
- Pre-soak the patio slabs, joints and surfaces with water to ensure they are damp – a light spray of water is enough, they don’t need to be soaked
- Pour 4.25 litres of water into a bucket and add the Flowpoint powder (there is a handy valve on the top of the bag so you don’t spill the powder everywhere)
- Mix for 3–5 minutes, with a force action mixer until the consistency is smooth and free of clumps
- Ensure the area is still damp before pouring across the slabs, apply the mixture immediately by carefully forcing Flowpoint into the joints using a rubber squeegee. Flowpoint can set within as little as 15 minutes (at temperatures of 20oC) so you will need to act fast
- Move the Flowpoint slurry grout constantly across the patio surface to fill-up joints where the mortar has sunk
- Use the rubber squeegee to remove as much of the paving grout from the surface of the slabs – still keep the surfaces constantly damp to prevent the grout from hardening
- Using a bristle brush & a plenty of water, remove any grout that has hardened on the paving surfaces
- Once the mortar is dry (after approximately 30 minutes, dependant on temperature), clean the surface of paving slabs thoroughly to remove any mortar patches and prevent staining
- The patio is ready to walk on after just one hour and can receive car traffic after four hours
To ensure Flowpoint Smooth doesn’t stain ensure that you follow the instructions!
When applying Flowpoint, you should avoid using excessive amounts of water during the mixing and laying process – doing so can increase the risk of efflorescence, as too much water can drag the salts & minerals up through the mortar bed, please ensure you thoroughly follow the mixing instructions. The key is to use a light misting of water to keep your slabs damp, never spray a hose or pressure washer directly into the paving joints while applying the grout. Instead, spray the water on the paving surfaces to clean them. On your final wash off you can then use more water, you’ll be looking for all of the cement residue to have washed away leaving clear water running off your new patio!
