Adding to its hugely popular Pavetuf collection, Natural Paving Products is delighted to announce the arrival of Pavetuf Priming Slurry. The specially formulated slurry provides an exceptional bond between the mortar base and stone or porcelain paving.
Pavetuf Priming Slurry is ideal for a variety of applications including driveways, paths, patios and light commercial spaces. The cementitious mixture is also suitable for bonding the mortar base onto concrete or screed.
However, where Pavetuf Priming Slurry really comes into its own is in the bedding of porcelain paving. Whilst laid like any other flagstone, porcelain-paving products are not porous and as such require extra support when adhering them to the mortar bed. Pavetuf Priming Slurry is specifically designed to provide this additional support and give an outstanding bond between the new mortar base and stone or porcelain paving.
Malcolm Gough, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Natural Paving Products commented: “It’s fantastic to be able to release a product that adds to both our Vitripiazza porcelain paving range and our hugely popular Pavetuf collection. Porcelain-paving products are increasingly desirable however they require a different form of bond, this Priming Slurry is essential for bonding them to the mortar base.”
Pavetuf Priming Slurry has been designed with user-friendliness in mind and only requires the addition of water before it can be applied in a quick and easy manner. Taking only three to five minutes to mix, the slurry can be applied as soon as the paving elements have been cleaned. Available in 17kg tubs, the slurry has a nominal coverage of 12.75m2 and an hour’s workability.
The Pavetuf range is designed to offer high quality installation, maintenance and protection products for all hard landscaping needs. The collection now includes fully breathable sealants that can be applied as soon as the stone is laid; a variety of cleaning products, including General Cleaner, Deep Cleaner, Rust Remover and Green-Off Cleaner; a Salt Eraser that removes efflorescence and prevents its reappearance; a high quality, Sand Crete sealer that also acts as a joint hardener, protecting against sand loss, weed growth and staining; and a Jointing Mortar and Jointing Compound.
