Product description

STEIN TEC® Jointing Mortar HD 02 – 1K is a hydraulically binding work dry mortar with application-specific mineral and organic additives. It is suited for surfaces used with up to heaviest loads and for special design. Of course, it is frost and de-icing agent resistant. Due to its specific compound, STEIN TEC® Jointing Mortar HD 02 – 1K is characterised by high flowability at coincident very good demixing stability and by high self-deaeration ability. Therefore, it is self-compacting and it is not necessary to compact it with machines. In association with its defined setting behaviour, the mentioned properties effect excellent processability and simplest cleansing of grouted surfaces.

STEIN TEC® Jointing Mortar HD 02 – 1K meets resp. surpasses in its properties the requirements according to the FSGV-Arbeitspapier Nr. 618/2 (working paper for surface pavements with pavings and slabs using bonded construction). STEIN TEC® Jointing Mortar HD 02 – 1K is with its properties optimally adapted to STEIN TEC® Bedding Mortar BM 04 resp. STEIN TEC® Bedding Mortar BM 04 S and it is suited for jointing of all paved and slabbed surfaces made of natural stone, concrete blocks and clinker bricks. Absolute precondition is a bonded bedding with sufficient adhesive bond to the surface element.

STEIN TEC® Jointing Mortar HD 02 – 1K is available as bag ware (40 kg) and as Big Bag (1.000 kg) in three standard colours: light grey, medium grey and dark grey.

On demand, further technically feasible colours can be delivered (2,4 t minimum purchase for bag ware, 3 t minimum purchase for Big Bags).

Important information

The bedding must be made of drainable mortar and meet the requirements of strength class C 25/30, at least. Considerably more suitable is water-permeable STEIN TEC® Bedding Mortar BM 04 because of its adapted shrinking and deforming behaviour, resp. STEIN TEC® Bedding Mortar BM 04 S if early loading is desired. If concrete blocks, slabs and, in general, elements with smooth and even (e.g sawn) underneaths are used, STEIN TEC® Bond Adhesive Haftfix should be applied additionally. Paving blocks and slabs must be clean, i.e. free from dust, grease, oil, adhesions and impurities (e.g. cutting or grinding slurry).

The joint space remaining after the setting of the elements must be completely filled up with STEIN TEC® Jointing Mortar HD 02 – 1K in one process. For mosaic sett pavings, the joint depth must be 3 cm at least. The non-compressed bedding material risen in the joints by the setting of the elements, must be bound force-fit with the jointing mortar. Pre-filling of the joints with mortar or other joint fillings are not permissible.

During the grouting, the day/processing stage of the laying shall be overlapped with the day/processing stage of the jointing in at least 1,0 m, rather 1,5 m distance.

For the laying and grouting of paving blocks and slabs in bonded construction method, respective regulations and generally accepted codes of practice do apply, like DIN 18318, ZTV Pflaster-StB (about pavings) and the bulletin M FP as far as applicable to bonded construction method and to the FSGV-Arbeitspapier Nr. 618/2 (working paper for surface pavements with pavings and slabs using bonded construction). Especially important is a sufficiently stable superstructure suited to the expected loads. For traffic areas where heavy traffic is expected, the requirements in terms of design and sustainability should be set for the panel 3 (Construction Classification III according RStO 01) or Load Classification 3.2 according RStO 12.


The grouting should take place – depending on the weather – one day after, at the latest 48 hours after the laying. If the grouting is possible only at a later date, please contact our technology department to come to an agreement.

The processing is normally done using the silting method. The surface to be silted shall be well pre-moistened (no stagnant water in the joints). Mix STEIN TEC® Jointing Mortar HD 02 – 1K in the positive mixer or by stirring device with clear cold water only (added amount see Technical Bulletin or imprint on bag) in flowable texture and free from lumps. Immediately afterwards bring the jointing mortar into the joints using a rubber slider slowly and accurately. Keep the silted surface constantly wet by a soft jet of water until the cleansing. After sufficient thickening of the jointing mortar, clean the surface by a soft water jet or a belt cleaning machine.

The grouted surface must be after-treated. For further information see Technical bulletin STEIN TEC® Jointing Mortar HD 02 – 1K.

Initial use

The enabling of the paved or slabbed area to loads is based upon the stage of the strength development of the bedding and the jointing mortar.

This primarily depends on the conditions of temperature during the processing and hardening of both mortars and can not be generally forecasted, therefore.

All time data listed below concern to a temperature of 20° C and apply – because of the relevant required strength level of the bedding mortar - only in combination with STEIN TEC® Bedding Mortars and if applicable STEIN TEC® Bond Adhesive “Haftfix”. The surface is walkable one day after the grouting. Light traffic (passenger cars) is possible after 7 days, at the earliest. Full loading can only take place after completed hardening (28 days as a general rule).

Please refer to the particular table “Technical specifications” for strength development at a constant surrounding temperature of 20° C.

If early loading is required we recommend STEIN TEC® Bedding Mortar BM 04 S in combination with STEIN TEC® Jointing Mortar HD 02 S – 1K or SF 02 – 1K.
