Carnforth paving display uses vdw850 pointing

GL Sharpes & Son in Carnforth, Cumbria are well established natural stone suppliers in the region and probably one of the most knowledgeable in the country.

So, of course, they are also stockist of GftK's vdw800 range from NCC Streetscape, the unique epoxy bound sand-based Paving Joint Mortars - the state-of-the-art technology for natural stone and quality concrete block and porcelain paving.

When they extended their extensive Customer Display Yard, they selected GftK's vdw 850 for the pointing.

The natural stone used in this new area includes: Rippon – sawn and shot blasted, Kandla grey – sawn and shot blasted and the ubiquitous trendy Porcelain.

The unique vdw 850 pointing is wet slurry applied, (so no issues with the weather at the start of the year!), it is non-staining and really fast and secure to apply - unlike cement and other polymer and resin mortars, plus it hardens quickly even in damp and cool conditions, so that the areas can quickly be put back into service and trafficked.
