Joints can make up to 20 % of the overall façade. Therefore, the form and colour of the joints have a decisive impact on the appearance. Also, the joints on the building have a technical function. Their physical, mechanical and especially moisture-related properties are decisive for the function and durability of a brick façade.
An intact joint network is a prerequisite for a façade that is resistant to driving rain. Penetrating moisture leads to a heavier frost load and a reduction in the thermal protection - both need to be avoided. Remmers joint mortars comprises a wide range of binding agent systems, grains and strengths, and selection options with respect to colour and hydrophilic or hydrophobic properties. They can therefore be selected to meet the individual application and requirements.
Remmers brick grout pointing
Remmers brick pointing primarily comprises of two elements:
- Replacement joints with a fine-grain sulphate-resistant hardened mortar without having to remove the old joints.
- Making the façade water-repellent
