Application Guide and Equipment
Flexipoint™ parallels the traditional method for bedding and pointing tile roofs. Flexipoint™ should be applied at a uniform thickness of 3-5mm over a normal 4:1 yellow brick sand/cement bedding. The bedding cement should be finished plumb and free of large holes and voids, ensuring no bedding residue is left on the edge of the ridge cap bedding interface. Flexipoint™ may be applied over a fully cured bedding, or it can be applied over wet (just laid) bedding, but please allow additional curing time in this case.
Surface Preparation: Ensure a clean surface by removing all dirt, dust, grease and oil.
Product Preparation: Mix Flexi-point vigorously prior to use
Application Method: Round nose pointing trowel
Clean Up: Water
Precautions and Limitations
Recommendations on surface preparation and product application must be observed.
Curing Time In temperate conditions of 25º C and 50% relative humidity the product may be expected to be rain resistant in around 2 hours of application. However, it should be noted that longer cure time is required when the product is applied over wet bedding, and where the temperature is below 15º C or relative humidity is above 70%.
