tufffix - Joint and bonding repair
tufffix can rejuvenate old paving, giving it a new lease of life, alleviating the need to fully lift and re-lay.
Old paving, often laid on sand/cement, which has cracked and broken joints and rocking pavers can be renovated with tufffix.
The thick flowable slurry mortar fills voids and replenishes joints to provide a structural repair.
Three simple steps to replenish damaged paving with tufffix;
- Remove all loose material from joints and thoroughly clean, ideally with a pressure washer.
- Pour tufffix in to the joints.
- Remove any excess using a sponge float.
Portions of the existing jointing mortar that are still sound and secure can be left in place and the tufffix applied over and around.
The longevity of a repair carried out with tufffix will depend on the condition and quality of the existing structure, how heavily it is trafficked, and how well it is prepared.
