For joints up to 4” (10 cm) in traditional applications
and 2” (5 cm) in overlay applications
NO DUST • HAZE FREE • NO BLOWER • ONE WATERING
RAIN SAFE IN 15 MINUTES
All pavers must be completely interlocked for vehicular and pedestrian use. If pavers are fanned they are not considered interlocked. GATOR MAXX G2 can be applied when pavers are installed directly open graded aggregates that lock or choke themselves. This means the polymeric sand will not migrate through the voids. Do not apply GATOR MAXX G2 when the pavers are installed directly on aggregates with large voids.
Maximum joint width for overlays: 2″ (5 cm)
Maximum joint width for traditional base: 4″ (10 cm)
POLYMERIC SAND REQUIREMENTS
Minimum joint width: 1/8″ (3 mm)
Maximum joint width: 4″ (10 cm)
Maximum overlay joint width: 2″ (5 cm)
Minimum joint depth: 1 1/2″ (38 mm)
GATOR MAXX G2 is recommended for a variety of uses including pool decks, patios, footpaths, driveways, parking spaces, pavements, etc. The concrete pavers must be installed on a traditional or overlay base system. (See diagrams).
Sweep GATOR MAXX G2 with hard-bristle broom. Make sure the GATOR MAXX G2 completely fills the joints. Do not use with other materials in the joints. Leave a layer of GATOR MAXX G2 on the surface to aid in the vibrating and consolidation of GATOR MAXX G2 into joints. For textured or pre-finished surfaces, we recommend to remove all the sand from the paver or slab surface prior to using the plate or roller compactor.
Vibrate the GATOR MAXX G2 into the paver joints using a vibratory plate compactor. A rubber pad is recommended. A roller compactor is best for slab installation. Joints sand level, must be at least 1/8″ (3 mm) below top of paver’s surface or 1/8″ (3 mm) below the chamfer. It is best to compact in several directions to ensure there are no air gaps or voids in the joints. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to ensure joints are filled and consolidated. Narrow joints require more care to completely fill. After initial compaction, about 30-50% of the sand will drop. Properly compacting will ensure enough product gets filled into the joints. Never skip this step!
Sweep off excess GATOR MAXX G2 from the paved surface, first with a hard-bristle broom, then a soft-bristle broom. Take care to leave the height of GATOR MAXX G2 at least 1/8″ (3 mm) below top of paver’s surface or 1/8″ (3 mm) below the chamfer.
Shower for a minimum of 30 seconds for 30 sq. ft. (3 sq. m.) or until the GATOR MAXX G2 repels the water and the water starts to accumulate on the joints.
Remove existing jointing material. Be careful not to disturb the bedding material under the pavers. Pavers must be completely dry before installing a minimum of 1 1/2″ (38 mm) deep into the joints. GATOR MAXX G2 level, must be at least 1/8″ (3 mm) below top of paver’s surface or 1/8″ (3 mm) below the chamfer or erosion may occur. The filled and cured polymeric sand joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires. Follow GATOR MAXX G2 installation steps 1 to 4 for a new paver surface.
