ROMPOX® - D1
The proven paving joint mortar
Our proven 2 component epoxy resin paving joint mortar ROMPOX® - D1 is a real allrounder. Thanks to it’s good flow capacity, it can be used for joint widths from 3 mm. The flow capacity also makes it suitable for use with polygonal slabs, which often have uneven edges and conical joints and are hard to joint. It can be used in drive- and entryways, as it can withstand loads up to 7,5 tons and is suitable for the repair of old paved stone surfaces. Jointing polygonal slabs and crazy paving, can be done whilst standing by washing in the product onto the unbonded surface.
ROMPOX® - D1 is ...
- for medium traffic loads up to 7,5 t
- for joint widths from 3 mm
- for joint depths from 30 mm
- fulfills the criteria of the usage category 3 acc. to ZTV road construction
Colours: neutral, stone grey, basalt
Construction site requirements:
The foundation needs to be prepared according to the expected traffic loads. Regulations and leaflets regarding construction of paved stone surfaces should be heeded. Future loads must not cause the surface to settle or loosen stones. Ideally “ROMEX® - TRASS-BED – the frost resistant drainage mortar“ should be used. See separate product information.
Clean out joints to a depth of at least 30 mm | 1 3/16" ( minimum joint width 3 mm | 1/8" ). The surface to be joint-fixed should be cleaned of all impurities before work commences. Adjoining surfaces that
are not to be joint-fixed are taped off.
Pre-wet the surface. Porous surfaces as well as higher surface temperatures, require more intense pre-wetting.
Pour the 25 kg | 55,1 lbs filler components into the mixing tub and start the mixing process. Whilst mixing, slowly add the separately packaged components completely into the mixture. After mixing for 3 minutes add water according to the product package and continue mixing well for at least 3 minutes.
Apply the mixed paving jointing mortar onto the well moistened surface and work it carefully into the joints using a squeegee/rubber slider. The mortar is poured out at three or four spots within the jointing area in order to make best use of the fluidity of the paving jointing mortar. Application time at + 20 °C / + 68 °F is approx. 20 – 30 minutes.
After approx. 10 – 15 minutes the excess mortar on the surface of the stones can be swept off carefully with a large, coarse broom. Then use a soft, hair broom to do a final cleaning until all residual mortar has been removed from the surface. The correct moment for sweeping, is when white smears no longer form on the stone surface during sweeping. Sweeping should be done diagonally to the joint. Do not re-use swept off material.
The freshly jointed surface needs to be protected against rain for the next 12 – 24hours. The rain protection layer must not be laid directly onto the paved surface this is to ensure sufficient air circulation. Safe rain protection is afforded by the specially developed ROMEX® protective surface mats, that can be simply laid on the surface. Please ask your trade supplier. During the initial period a very thin film of epoxy resin remains on the stone surface and intensifies the colour of the stone and protects it from dirt. This film disappears over the course of time due to weathering and abrasion
