The unique GftK vdw range of paving joint mortars can save you time and money on every project and represent the 'State-of-the-Art' solution for high performance and extremely durable paving joints in many different areas. GftK’s vdw range are 2-component, self-compacting, epoxy resin pre-coated and bound, graded alluvial (rounded) quartz sand, paving joint mortar for pedestrian and vehicular traffic loads, including larger vehicles. When fully hardened it is fully resistant to cleaning with high pressure water jetting and even to mechanical street cleaners and sweepers. It is resistant to, and prevents weed growth and damage by boring insects such as ants etc. Also, importantly, GftK's vdw Paving Joint Mortars are applied standing-up, so bringing paving jointing and grouting to a new, more sustainable level, with application in a healthier and more ergonomic position than being on your hands and knees all day. They are designed for extremely fast self-compacting application, with no delays and no additional waiting even during periods of continuously wet weather and at colder temperatures. This is because the material (vdw 850) can be applied in the wet, even in the rain - and in cold (non-freezing) conditions, as it will continue to cure and more quickly when the temperature increases above 8-10 °C.
