tufftop (previously called tuffgrout) is a high-performance jointing mortar for grouting all types of paving.
When mixed with water, tufftop forms a free-flowing slurry grout that is worked into the joints using a squeegee. It is easy to apply, and surplus residue is easily removed with water. tufftop penetrates the most irregular joints and voids and fills joint widths as small as 3mm.
tufftop is cost-effective, allowing large areas of paving to be jointed in a relatively short time compared with hand-pointing or gun-injected methods.
tufftop meets or exceeds the performance requirements of BS 7533-7 and BS 7533-12. It has a high compressive strength and optimal elastic modulus, capable of withstanding the stresses of heavy trafficking for a long lifetime, while requiring low maintenance.
Paving jointed with tufftop may be open to most forms of trafficking within 7 days, and very heavy trafficking within 28 days. For paving requiring full trafficking within 3 hours, tuffset G mortar should be used.
Additional features and benefits

- Hardwearing and resistant to abrasion and modern cleaning methods
- Natural grey
- Mid grey
- Dark grey
