1A.Install pavers using manufacturer’s guidelines for bedding, leveling and installation. Fully clean off debris from the project area.
1B.Installations should have a proper drainage layer of sand with a depth of 1″ (2.54 cm). In addition, weep holes need to be added to concrete overlays.
1C.If existing project, properly clean out joints before applying polymeric sand and skip to step 3.
2A.Compact pavers thoroughly using a rubber-plated compactor.
2B.If compactor is not rubber-plated, cover pavers with a woven fabric while compacting to help protect paver surface from damage.
2C.Pavers must be completely dry before installing polymeric sand. Wait 24 hours after rain.
3A.Gently tumble bag, then cut the bottom and apply Pavermate Polymeric Sand evenly over the surface.
3B.Spread sand into joints, completely filling to the full depth of the pavers.
3C.Avoid pushing sand over long distances.
3D.Remove excess sand from surface of pavers before compacting.
A.Compact filled joints using a rubber-plated compactor.
4B.Repeat compacting and filling (steps 3A – 4A) if necessary.
5A.Remove excess sand from paver surface using a soft bristle broom and set the joint height with a leaf blower on idle.
5B.Once complete, joint height should be filled to 1/8″ (.32 cm) below the top of the paver.
6A.Working in sections up to 200 sq. ft. (18.58 sq. m.), water the section for a total of 2 minutes.
6B.Do not allow the section to dry during the 2 minute watering:
6C.MIST: Use hose with a sprayer attachment set to “mist” or similar light setting. Mist area until the surface is wet.
6D.SHOWER: Next, set hose to “light shower” to allow more water over the area. Repeat shower two times over the section.
7A.Use a screwdriver to test for proper moisture depth of at least 1″ (2.54 cm). If depth is not achieved, immediately wet the area with a shower setting.
7B.Once moisture depth is achieved, blow off excess water using a leaf blower.
8A.Rain safe 10 minutes after joint activation.
8B.A flexible joint is a sign that reaction has occurred but is not completely cured.
8C.A dry environment is important to allow joints to fully cure. For best performance, install when no rain is forecasted for 24 hours.
8D.Wait 28 days prior to cleaning or sealing.
Narrow JointsTypical coverage is 55 – 75 sq. ft. (5.11 – 6.97 sq. m.) per bag.
Wide JointsTypical coverage is 20 – 30 sq. ft. (1.86 – 2.79 sq. m.) per bag.
Coverage will vary depending on joint depths and widths. This coverage is for reference only and is not guaranteed.
Temperature RequirementTemperatures must remain above 32°F (0°C) throughout installation and curing.
Wet AreasNot recommended for wet/heavily shaded areas. Do not use on pool copings.
CuringFor best results, wait 28 days after installation before cleaning and sealing.
