ROMPOX® - EASY
The easiest paving joint mortar
ROMPOX® - EASY is a ready to use 1 component paving joint mortar. After application it hardens when it reacts with the oxygen in air and is thus vacuum packed. This highly water permeable jointing mortar is very good for DIY use as it is so easy to use. ROMPOX® - EASY can be used on patios, footpaths, non trafficked entry areas or similar pedestrian only surfaces all around the house. The paving joint mortar can be used with almost all types of natural stones, natural and concrete stone slabs as well as clinker surfaces. Polygonal slabs / crazy paving or broken stone slabs are the exception. In this case we recommend using our 2 component paving joint mortars such as ROMPOX® - D1.

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.
Clean out joints to a depth of at least 30 mm | 1 3/16" ( minimum joint width 5 mm | 3/16" ). The surface to be jointed should be cleaned of all kinds of dirt. Any adjoining surfaces that are not to be jointed should be taped off.
Pre-wet surface. Porous surfaces as well as higher surface temperatures require more intense pre-wetting.
Open the lid of the bucket. Pour the paving jointing mortar immediately onto the surface and using a coarse street broom or squeegee spread it evenly so that it goes into the joints deeply, firmly and compactly. Professional tip: In order to compact the joints even better, the freshly applied paving jointing mortar can be elutrified using a water spray jet. Sunken joints are re-filled with more paving jointing mortar. Avoid any standing water in the fresh joints, ensure there is sufficient slope.
Finally, clean the stone surface carefully with a fine hair broom, so that it is free of all mortar residue. Sweep diagonally to the joint. Do not re-use swept off material. Any residual material on the stone surface can still be swept off after 24 hours with a coarse street broom.
Rain protection during drizzle is not necessary. In case of heavy or permanent rain, the jointed surface should be protected for approx. 24 hours. The rain protection ( building sheet/ cover sheet) can be laid directly onto the surface. During the initial period, a very fine synthetic resin film
remains on the stone surface which intensifies the colour of the stones and protects against dirt. This film disappears over the course of time due to weathering and abrasion.
In case of doubt always lay a sample surface before doing the entire jointing. Do not use in “permanently wet areas“ ( swimming pools, fountains, drains, drip edges etc. ) Remove anything that stores water regularly from the jointed surface such as moss, leaves and weeds. Only use on water permeable substructures. The mortar can slowly disintegrate if exposed to permanent water loads or standing water. Only use outdoors.
