The DIY Paving mould Matrix are made from Virgin Polypropylene and will last for years if properly cared for, they are engineered to be strong and sturdy.
Reusable, recyclable and comes in various sizes and shapes. Black in colour.
A superior paving mould with all the cobbles attached. Different to the other DIY moulds where the cobbles are loose from one another.
To answer your question: ” How are the cobbles all connected?”
The partitions on the inside are not extended all the way as the outer partition are. In this way the mixture will flow on the bottom inside to connect all the cobbles.
With the Matrix mould the mixture will have to be more runny(liquid) in order for the cement mixture to flow in between the gaps below. The settling time will be slightly longer (+/- 10 minutes) unlike the 5 minutes of the other DIY moulds.
To explain it differently; the outer height dimension is 6 cm and the inner partition segment’s height is eg. 4 cm.
This mould is fully 90 degree rotatable and fits like a glove into each other.
Simple design and easy to use.
- Prepare and clean the ground.
- Place the mould on the ground.
- Premix the concrete/cement and fill the mould.
- Smooth the concrete/cement in the mould.
- After about 10 minutes, carefully remove mould
