EASYJoint can be used in virtually all conditions including rain and light snow.
Once EASYJoint has been applied it will not be compromised by cold and freezing conditions. Cold & wet conditions will increase the setting time considerably - freezing weather will cause the process to virtually cease & it can take many days for the joints to set hard. However, it will eventually set & the weather will not have impaired its qualities in any way. EASYJoint can take up to 3 weeks to gain maximum hardness & strength.
In freezing conditions, EASYJoint can be applied using the Dry Application method. There is a greater risk of staining or ‘picture framing’ with this method but the effects can be lessened by sealing the paving first. Our experience has been that if any marking occurs it will weather over time & eventually fade away. Azpects have a range of easy to use sealers to meet your needs - visit our website to find out more: http://azpects.co.uk/sealers-and-protectors.aspx
As water can turn to ice in freezing conditions, we strongly recommend you avoid the wet application process. If ice has formed in the joint prior to installation avoid using EASYJoint until the ice has melted.
If your intention is to use the wet application method, ensure that ground temperatures are greater than 3 degrees Celsius.
