EASYJoint is an easy to use sweep-in jointing compound suitable for use with all types of paving slabs.
It’s a quick and effective way to fill joints between paving, as long as there is a gap of 3mm wide and 20mm deep.
EASYJoint is available in 5 colours from all branches.
If you're opting for porcelain paving, you may be better off using porcelain paving grout. Speak to your local branch for more information.
