FAQ Questions about EasyJoint
A couple of questions your customers may have and how to respond:
I dryset by setting the stone on stone dust or screenings, is that okay?
Stone dust or screenings will not prohibit the EASYJoint from setting up properly but fines hold a lot of water and are not great for freeze thaw cycle resistance. EASYJoint recommends a clean washed stone such as C-33 or stone chips such as No.8’s, 9’s, 10’s,. #78’s or #89’s
I wetset or thinset all of my projects. Since EASYJoint is permeable wont that let water in to freeze and create problems with adhesion.
No, EASYJoint’s permeability allows water to escape both through the joint and to evaporate. It does not trap water. It is also flexible so it won’t crack out like a mortar joint. You just need to make sure as with any job that there is adequate pitch for drainage.
