At +15 degrees, Joint-It Simple will take approximately 30 minutes to apply. Lower temperatures will result in slower hardening and higher temperatures will result in quicker hardening.
Joint-It Simple must be used within four hours of opening the tub.
Below 0 degrees
If the temperature is forecast to drop below 0 degrees within 12 hours of application, we recommend you postpone application until the weather is a bit warmer.
Surface can be walked on approximately 24 hours after application at temperatures of approx. 20 degrees.
Keep pressure washers away from paving for at least 28 days after application. If you need to power-wash the area, keep the nozzle 30cm away from paving.
Store Joint-It Simple in a cool, dry place. Protect tub from punctures or piercing. Any exposure to air will start to harden the product.
Joint-It Simple has a minimum shelf-life of 12 months when stored in unopened containers, as specified above.

Joint-It Simple can be applied in all-weather conditions. However, we don’t recommend you use the product when temperatures are forecast to drop below 0 degrees Celsius within 12 hours of application.
Paving must not be laid on soil as the paving will sink and Joint-It Simple will crack out.
We recommend that you lay paving on a semi-dry bed of sharp sand and cement, approx. 35-50mm deep.
For pedestrian and patio areas, we recommend using 6 parts sharp sand and 1 part cement.
We do not recommend the dot & dab method when laying paving because over time the paving will rock, crack and move, and the jointing compound will crack out of the joints.
We recommend that all joints are cleaned out to a minimum depth of 20mm and a width of at least 3mm but wider and deeper joints are totally acceptable.
Make sure all joints, and the area to be jointed, are clear of any dirt, oil, grease and debris before you start the job.
