TRADITIONAL & OVERLAY APPLICATIONS (NEW STONE SURFACE)

STEP 2
Make sure the sides and top surfaces of stones are dry before applying the Eurostone Bond polymeric sand. Sweep Eurostone Bond in between the pavers stone joints.
STEP 3
Compact the sand in the joint with a vibrating plate and a hand tamper in restricted area. Sweep off all excess Eurostone Bond that is on the paver stone surface. Ensure that Eurostone Bond lies at least 3 mm below the top of the paver stones. Repeat twice the sweeping and compacting of the joint to ensure a good consolidation of the joint.
STEP 4
Using a leaf blower, remove any Eurostone Bond residue from the paver stones surface. Depending on the physical layout, it may be more appropriate to remove residue by using a vacuum unit.
STEP 5
Use a water gun connected to a hose to direct a shower stone (water gun setting: “shower” or equivalent) and direct water 1.2 m high so that it lands on a total area of 7 m2 of paver stone pavement for 10 to 15 seconds. Wait 3 to 4 minutes (no longer), then repeat this step twice, to remove residues from Eurostone Bond. However, stop watering if you notice water retention on the joints of pavers stones.
STEP 6
Repeat the directions of step 5 for all other paved areas that have not been showered with water. The water used in steps 5 & 6 will activate a bonding action as well as condense Eurostone Bond in the joints. It is important to water the Eurostone Bond a total of 3 times. Too little water will not properly activate the Eurostone Bond and will reduce the final performance.
IMPORTANT:
If steps 5 & 6 are not done properly, a white haze may appear on stone paver surface after installation. This is due to excess Eurostone Bond residue left on stone surfaces. This haze will dissipate over time. It can also be removed by using Gator Clean efflorescence cleaner.

METHOD FOR APPLYING EUROSTONE BOND ON AN EXISTING STONE SURFACE:


  1. Using a pressure washer, remove all the loose material that is in the joints (2.5 cm minimum).
  2. Follow steps 2 to 6 of NEW STONE SURFACE instructions (above).

PLEASE NOTE


Do not apply if the paver surface is damp or wet. The damp or wet surface will cause Eurostone Bond to prematurely activate and will lead to the polymers sticking on the stone paver surface. Do not apply if the natural stone paver joints are damp or wet. This will prevent the Eurostone Bond from properly sliding into the joints and compromise the possibility of obtaining very densely packed joints, which is critical to the product’s performance. Do not use if rain is expected within 1 hour. Avoid excessive watering or flooding of natural stone paver surface. For all-natural stone paver surfaces, and particularly around in-ground pools, there must be a slope of 3mm per 30 cm away from the edge of the pool, or structures, to ensure optimal performance of the Eurostone Bond. For the pool coping units, it is mandatory to use mortar in the joints. For the rest of the natural stone paver installation around the pool, you can use Eurostone Bond. Do not sweep Eurostone Bond over asphalt. Insure that Eurostone Bond lies at least 3mm below the top of the stone’s paver or erosion may occur. The filled and cured Eurostone Bond joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires. The product must only be used as a recessed jointing material.

MOSS


Eurostone Bond will not cause nor prevent moss, mold or mildew. Moss, mold and mildew are caused by certain on- site conditions, including excess moisture, shade, absence of ventilation, inadequate cleaning or maintenance, presence of soil or other organic debris left on the product.

FOR USE ON AND REQUIRED SUB-SURFACE PREPARATION


Eurostone Bond is recommended for a variety of uses, including pool sides, patios, foot paths, driveways, parking spaces, pavements, etc.
WITH A TRADITIONAL BASE SYSTEM: The stone pavers have to be installed on a system composed of 2 layers. The upper layer can have a maximum of 2.5 cm of bedding sand. The lower layer must have a minimum of 15 cm of crushed stone compacted at 98% Proctor density.
WITH AN OVERLAY APPLICATION: (See diagrams below) you must have a minimum 2% top surface slope for proper water runoff for both systems.
