Have a look at pavingexpert on Google - all things paving explained and illustrated
As above check out paving expert.

5mm is too narrow for normal sand and cement pointing. You will need to use a slurry product of some sort. The choices are 1 part polymeric like marshalls weatherpoint 365 or easyjoint.

then 2 part epoxy resins like rompox d1 or nexxus or gtfk which are miles better but more expensive.

Or you can use a flowable cement grout like flowpoint, which needs more bravery and clean up is much harder but may be cheaper.
