GATOR MAXX SAND 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 base system composed of 2 layers. The upper layer can have a maximum of 1 inch (25 mm) of bedding sand ASTM No.9 stone. The lower layer must have a minimum of 6 inches (15 cm) of crushed stone compacted at 98 % Proctor density. (See diagrams below).
(For a new paver surface)
Vibrate the GATOR MAXX SAND 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 inch (3 mm) below top of paver’s surface or 1/8 inch (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 1-3 to ensure joints are filled and consolidated. Narrow joints require more care to completely fill.
The water used in steps 7 to 9 will activate a bonding action as well as condensing GATOR MAXX SAND in the joints. It is important to water the GATOR MAXX SAND a total of 3 times, as per steps 7, 8 and 9. Too little water will not properly activate the GATOR MAXX SAND and will reduce the final performance. If steps 7 to 10 are not done properly, a white haze may appear on paver surface after installation. This is due to excess GATOR MAXX SAND residue left on paver surfaces. This haze will dissipate over time, or it could be removed by using Gator Clean Efflorescence Cleaner.
