Rated 5 out of 5Â by RobTay Would recommend...
I have recently paved part of my front garden with 450mm x 450mm light grey flags, approximately 12 sqm with 10mm joints.
A builder friend recommended this instead of pointing, I was dubious at first because it seems too easy but the reviews suggested it was good stuff so thought I would give it a try.
The amount you get doesn't look like it will go very far but it did cover almost all the joints at a depth of around 25mm (minimum required). After I had filled all the joints I lightly ran over with a jointing bar just to ensure a nice flat finish and fill any gaps.
The finish is great and looks absolutely perfect, very happy with it.
Things to keep in mind:
1) You need to use a thick soft sweeping brush to apply (the kind you use indoors), a regular garden brush won't cut it.
2) The product is rated at 12 sqm coverage, it's not quite covered that so I am going to have buy another full box to finish off. This isn't a problem in itself but you need be prepared to buy more if you covering the same approximate area.
3) The finish is a darker grey that regular mortar, it actually looks great with my paving but just be aware.
4) My flags finish on a slight overhang where there is a flower bed, powder doesn't suspend in mid air so you have to put something in place to support it which it cures (couple of days).
TIP: Once you have roughly filled the joints sweep diagonally across the joint lines otherwise the brush sweeps too much back out.
Apart from those points I would highly recommend, beats the back breaking process of pointing with mortar any day.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jockflob Good but...
Never jointed anything before so wanted something quick and easy to do and I decided on this after reading other reviews.
Prodcut is easy to use, as you just brush it in. I actually found that using your hands to force into the gaps and then brushing was the easiest method. Make sure you brush any excess off.
Colour once dried has a little 'brownish' tinge but that might be just me.
You will need more than the recommended amount. I required approx 30% more than was stated on the side of the tub.
Dried quickly enough and time will tell whether longivity is an issue.
I would use again.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Chas379 Great product but be careful
I had Indian sandstone laid (35m3) and the pointing was done with this product and it was great. 1 yr later I needed to buy some more to 'top up' and when I got the product, 1 and a half bags (out of 2) had gone solid. No evidence of damage.
Screwfix were great and I got a refund but be careful and inspect the product before taking.
