POLYMERIC SAND FOR PAVER
AND NATURAL STONE JOINTS UP TO 2”
(FOR RESIDENTIAL APPLICATIONS)
POLYBIND SAND G2 is made with a state-of-the-art manufacturing process. Specifically, calibrated sand is mixed with sophisticated intelligent polymers. This new generation of Intelligent Polymers neutralizes haze and dust. No blower is needed and the intelligent polymeric sand requires only one watering. POLYBIND SAND G2 is recommended for a variety of uses including pool decks, patios, footpaths, driveways, parking spaces, pavements, etc. Available in Nevada Tan and Oxford Grey.
If used on clay pavers, make sure they are 100% dry. Clay pavers tend to hold moisture which can prematurely activate the POLYBIND SAND G2 while the sand is being spread over the paver surface, leaving a residue. Always apply on a test area before using the POLYBIND SAND G2 on clay pavers.
POLYBIND SAND G2 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.
When maintaining the paver surface, apply Polybind Shampoo to clean the entire paved surface including the paver joints. Wash, rinse and remove any residue by using a hose and a watering gun set to shower with the normal maximum water pressure from any residential or commercial building (typically 80 psi).
Quantity required depends on the shape and size ofthe concrete pavers as well as the width of the joints.
Please Note: Do not install Polymeric Sand in joints when pavers are installed directly on foundation with permeable aggregates with large voids (very porous), ex. 1/8”, 3/16”, 1/4” or a blend of these aggregates.

POLYBIND SAND 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 drainage base system composed of 2 layers. The upper layer can have a maximum of 1 inch of bedding sand. The lower layer must have a minimum of 6 inches of crushed stone compacted at 98 % Proctor density. (See diagrams.)
Spread POLYBIND SAND G2 with hard-bristle broom. Make sure the POLYBIND SAND G2 completely fills the joints. Do not use other materials in the joints. Leave a layer of POLYBIND SAND G2 on the surface to aid in the vibrating and consolidation of POLYBIND SAND 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 compacter
Vibrate the POLYBIND SAND G2 into the paver joints using a vibratory plate compactor. A rubber pad is recommended. A roller compactor is best for slab installation. Joints should be filled up to 1/8 inch below the edge or 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.
Remove existing jointing material. Be careful not to disturb the bedding material under the pavers. Pavers must be completely dry before installing POLYBIND SAND G2. Follow steps 1 to 4 of POLYBIND SAND G2 installation steps for a new paver surface.
