Designed for fast & accurate brickwork pointing
The PointMaster is extremely effective for the repointing of old brickwork, where the mortar has crumbled away. The Hi-Flo nozzle allows the mortar joint to be completely filled on the first pass.
This ensures the best repair possible, completed in a fraction of the time taken using traditional methods. The time saved improves job margins and increases profitability.
When repointing brickwork where the joints have already been cleared, 10 square metres per hour is achievable. this time also includes time to strike and finish the brick mortar joints.
Simplicity of the design is key to flexibility
For masonry pointing, the PointMaster is suitable for use with most mixes. This includes hydraulic lime mortar mixes for heritage repairs. If required, it's easy to adjust the nozzle width to suit the joint you are working on. This ensures an accurate and clean fill, keeping the brickwork face free from excess mortar.
Mortar joints can then be struck and finished as required.
When repointing masonry and brickwork, always remember to remove all the loose and powdery mortar and recess the joints to a depth of 15 - 20mm, then dampen the brick cavity and existing mortar to ensure the best adhesion. This can be seen clearly in the image below.

You can see how the application of mortar is fast and very precise, with negligable surface staining, which is vital in delivering a professional result. Joint style should match the surrounding brickwork. If the joints are slightly over-filled, it is possible to weather-strike if required.
