How do I use Flowpoint?
- Ensure that your paving slabs & joints are free from debris and any ponded water
- Pre-soak the surface of the slabs & joints with water to ensure they are damp, but not drowned in water
- Pour a bag of Flowpoint into a bucket and add 4.25 litres of water
- Mix for 3–5 minutes until you have a smooth consistency, free of lumps
- Ensure the area is still damp, apply the mixture immediately by carefully pushing the Flowpoint into the joints using a rubber squeegee or using Please note: Flowpoint can set within as little as 15 minutes (at temperatures of 20oC) so you will need carefully monitor the paving grout setting
- Move the Flowpoint grout across the paving surface to top-up joints where the mortar may have sunk
- Using a rubber squeegee to remove as much of the paving grout from the surface of the slabs – remembering to keep the surfaces constantly damp to prevent the grout from hardening
- Use a brush and lots of water – or alternatively a pressure washer or sponge machine – to remove any grout that has hardened on the paving surfaces
- Once the mortar is dry (after approx. 30 minutes), clean the surface of paving slabs thoroughly to remove any spots of mortar and prevent them from staining
- Your newly grouted patio will be ready to walk on after one hour, and can take vehicles after four hours
What is Flowpoint?
Flowpoint is a flowable, fast set, external paving grout which is ideal for filling the joints in patio flags, paving slabs, terraces and pavements. Once cured it prevents weeds from growing between slabs.
How long does Flowpoint last?
When applied correctly, Flowpoint slurry paving grout can last beyond 20 years without the need to grout the paving again.
How long does Flowpoint take to set?
After mixing, Flowpoint external paving grout can take as little as 15 minutes to set (temperature is 20oC). However, as a rule of thumb – the hotter the temperature, the faster Flowpoint will set, in colder temperatures it’ll take a little longer for Flowpoint to set.
Is Flowpoint grout permeable?
No, Flowpoint is non-permeable, cementitious-based grout – meaning it doesn’t allow water to pass through it once set.
Can you use Flowpoint in the rain?
Yes, you can use Flowpoint in light rain but ensure the paving joints don’t fill up with rainwater. Applying Flowpoint on a damp day can actually be beneficial, because it can stop the wet slurry from setting too quickly.
