Ultrascape Flowpoint Eco: Rapid Set Flowable Grout
UltraScape Flowpoint Eco grout exceeds all the requirements of the latest British Standard. It has been in use for over 20 years in a variety of project environments including public realm, landscaping and domestic. Flowpoint ECO offers the same benefits as Flowpoint but contains 20% recycled material, significantly reducing the consumption of virgin aggregates and is ideal for schemes looking to achieve an ‘excellent’ CEEQUAL award, or where a BREEAM assessment is to be carried out.

UltraScape Flowpoint Eco is a rapid set grout with an environmentally friendly formulation, containing 20% recycled material. It has a high fluid consistency for early trafficking that conforms to the strict demands of BS 7533. UltraScape Flowpoint Eco is ideal for all pavements where a rigid or bound void-free joint is required. The product is suitable for application in town centre pedestrian schemes, pathways and carriageways, and can be used with natural stone, concrete flags and clay paviours.
UltraScape Flowpoint Eco is a fully pre-mixed dry-pack which only requires the addition of water on-site. It can fill joints from 5mm50mm wide with a minimum target depth of 20mm, up to 200mm in one application. This highly fluid grout achieves a final compressive strength of 49.6N/mm2 (results achieved using 4.25 litres of water per 25kg bag), and will reach initial set in 30 minutes, will accept light foot traffic after 1 hour, and vehicular traffic after 4 hours (dependent upon temperature).
Mixing and Application Once the paving is ready to receive the grout the following method must be adhered to: Immediately prior to jointing it must be ensured that the joints are free from debris and all ponded water removed. The paving surface and joints must be pre-soaked and kept wet until the jointing process has been completed. A 25kg bag requires 4.25 litres of water and must be mixed for between 3 and 5 minutes until a smooth lump-free consistency has been achieved. Apply the mortar without delay. Do not store liquid mortar other than in transit from mixer. It must be carefully forced into the joints using a suitable rubber squeegee.
The mortar should be constantly moved over the surface to repeatedly top up joints in which the mortar may have slumped following initial placement. Use the rubber squeegee to remove as much mortar as possible from the surface. The surface must be kept constantly moist using a soft spray of water. When the jointing mortar has hardened sufficiently or achieved its initial set the paving surface must be cleaned using a brush and copious amounts of water. Cleaning must be carried out thoroughly and no mortar must be allowed to remain on the surface of the paving.
