G2 Polymeric Sand Promo

G2 Intelligent Polymeric Sand by Alliance is manufactured by mixing specifically calibrated sand with sophisticated intelligent polymers, which neutralize haze and dust. The end result: a second generation of polymeric sand unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.Alliance G2 Polymeric Sand Logo

  • No Dust
  • Haze Free
  • No Blower Required
  • One Watering

G2 Polymeric Sand simplifies the installation process. Sweeping is all it takes to completely remove the particles from the surface, thus eliminating the additional step of using a blower. And with its uniform composition, water is able to penetrate deeper through the G2 Polymeric Sand. This activates all of the intelligent polymers more evenly to form a stronger, more consistent bond, which only requires only one watering.

How To Use G2 Polymeric Sand in 4 Easy Steps

Step 1: Spread

Spread the G2 polymeric sand into the paver joints with a stiff bristle broom. Make sure the polymeric sand fills the joints completely. G2 Polymeric Sand Application

Tip: DO NOT USE OTHER MATERIAL IN THE JOINTS. Doing so will cause the polymeric sand to fail.

Step 2: Compac

Vibrate the G2 sand 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 3mm (1/8 in.) 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.

Step 3: Clean 

Using a stiff-bristle broom, remove any excess G2 sand from paver surfaces. Do the same with a soft-bristle broom. Make sure the finished sand level is at least 1/8 in. (3mm) lower than the chamfer of the pavers.

Tip: Make sure the paver’s side and top surfaces are dry before applying the polymeric sand! The polymeric sand will harden if it is moistened and will adhere to the surface of the paver.

Once you have removed the polymeric sand from the surface of the pavers you can lightly mist the pavers and joints with a hose. Do this at a height of about 4 feet. Mist the area for about 1 minute starting at the lowest point.

How to use Polymeric Sand

6 Steps on How to Use Polymeric Sand

Polymeric Sand is the best choice for filling in your paver joints. There are many advantages to using polymeric sand over other traditional sand, which you may read about here.

Though the benefits are great, the installation of polymeric sand requires time and attention to detail. There are specific steps you need to take in order to joint pavers with polymeric sand to ensure a successful application. Just follow our helpful steps below!

PolymericSandStep 1: Spread

After you have ran a vibrating plate-compactor over the pavers in several directions to compact the pavers (check with your paver manufacturer if it is safe to use a compactor on their product), spread the polymeric sand into the paver joints with a stiff bristle broom. We recommend using Alliance Polymeric Sand.

Tip: If a vibrating-plate compactor cannot be used, tamp the stones with a rubber mallet and make sure the pavers are settled into the setting bed.

Step 2: Repeat

Spread the sand, sweeping it into the joints, then compacting as you did in Step 1. Do this at least twice to ensure the joints are filled with sand.

PolymetricSandApplicationStep 3: Clean 

Using a fine-bristle broom, remove any excess sand from paver surfaces. Make sure the finished sand level is at least 1/8 in. (3mm) lower than the chamfer of the pavers. Using a leaf blower, gently remove any sand residue from paved surfaces.You may even use a vacuum to remove sand from the surface of the pavers.

Tip: Make sure the paver’s side and top surfaces are dry before applying the polymeric sand! The polymeric sand will harden if it is moistened and will adhere to the surface of the paver.

PolymericSandStep 4: Mist

Once you have removed the polymeric sand from the surface of the pavers you can lightly mist the pavers and joints with a hose. Do this at a height of about 4 feet. Mist the area for about 10-15 seconds. Wait about 3-4 minutes before proceeding to the next step.

Step 5: Mist Some More

Now from a height of 2 feet, mist the area again. Mist and rinse simultaneously to ensure that any sand that may have gotten onto the pavers is washed off. Again do this  for about 10-15 seconds. Wait about 3-4 minutes before repeating the process again. Be sure to stop misting when you see a minimal amount of puddling in the paver joints.

PolymericSandStep 6:  Touch Up

Use a leaf blower to gently remove any excess water on the surface of the pavers. This will help remove any polymeric sand that may be on the pavers surface during the previous step.

Best Sand for Paver Joints

What is the best sand for paver joints?

This is a great question to ask because you want to maintain the durability and longevity of your newly installed pavers. Polymeric sand is a high-tech mix of graded sand and binders, specially formulated for the filling of narrow or wide joints when installing pavers, slabs or natural stones, or when replacing existing joints. Unlike conventional sand, it locks in place and remains stable. It softens when wet and firms up when dry to better resist soil movements.

PolymericSandFinish

Polymeric sand is the ideal choice for filling in the joint spaces between your pavers because it offers many advantages such as,

#1 Secures Pavers: Polymeric sand keeps your pavers locked in place while also remaining flexible. The composition of polymeric sand includes both a high-tech mixture of graded sands and polymer which allows it to remain solid and bonded but flexible enough to move during freeze/thaw cycles without shifting the pavers out of place.

#2 Weather Resistant: Polymeric sand can withstand high levels of moisture. Other traditional sand used for jointing cannot and will wash right out of the paver joints thus causing the pavers to pull apart. Polymeric sand solves this common issue because it is waterproof and is flexible enough to withstand the expansion and contraction that occurs with the change in seasons. This increases the longevity of your pavers and provides easy maintenance.

#3 Helps Prevent Weeds & Pests: Polymeric sand that is used to fill the joints prevents plant life from growing up in between the stones. In addition it helps prevent weeds from growing that are airborne because the seed cannot root itself into the solid composition of the sand.The sand also prevents ants from coming up between pavers and building nests.

Before you purchase polymeric sand, keep in mind that not all are created equally. We recommend using Alliance® Polymeric Sand for all your hardscape projects because of their meticulous attention to detail and commitment to providing the BEST performing polymeric sand and dust in the industry.
