Products FAQ’s

I’m using Sika Pave Fix Plus; do you have any tips on how to get a perfect finish?

  1. Ensure all joints have a minimum full depth width of 5mm and are at least 25mm deep. Wetting the paving lightly before application is recommended, but joints should be free of standing water, dirt, debris or weeds. Ensure the paving bedding is well drained.
  2. Remove Sika® PaveFix Plus from the packaging and cut the bag. Once punctured or opened the material must be used within 1 hour.
  3. Use Sika® PaveFix Plus in small manageable amounts. Avoid spreading over a large area before application. Ensure material is all loose by raking through. Do not try to break up and use any small set lumps. Do not add any extra sand.
  4. Using a soft broom, or hand brush for smaller areas, work Sika® PaveFix Plus into the joints. Make sure each joint is completely filled and the material well compressed.
  5. Sika® PaveFix Plus will start to set in 6 to 12 hours above 15°C in dry conditions. Allow up to 4 days for full set in temperatures between 4°C and 15°C. Contact with rain or moisture can slow the final set. To further harden and waterproof, Sika® Patio Seal may be applied.
