Polymeric Sand

polymeric sandPolymeric sand for use with most type of landscaping pavers such as:

  • concrete pavers
  • stone pavers
  • patio pavers
  • interlocking pavers
  • driveway pavers

Features

  • Helps prevent weed sprouting
  • Helps prevent damages caused by insects
  • Helps prevent water erosion
  • Sets as soon as water is sprayed
  • Sets at above freezing temperature (0 C – 32 F)
  • Can be applied even if storm is expected (3 hours at a minimum before it rains)
  • Will maintain elasticity under weather conditions, insuring that paver joints are always properly filled
  • Does not stain paving stone

Sealers

Sealers reduce the intrusion of water, stains, oils and dirt into the paver surfaces. Like stabilizers, application of a sealer follows stain removal, efflorescence removal and overall surface cleaning. Sealers are used for visual and functional reasons. They offer visual improvement by intensifying the paver colors. Some will add a glossy sheen or “wet” look to the pavement. Other sealers offer some color enhancement and produce a low sheen, or a flat finish. Sealers offer many functional advantages. They can protect pavers from stain penetration. They are useful around trash receptacles, fast food restaurants, driveways, other areas subject to stains, and where oil drippings are not wanted. Like stabilizers, sealers are also useful in stopping unwanted insects and weeds. Sealers can stabilize joint sand between pavers cleaned by vacuum sweeping equipment. They can help maintain the sand in the joints under high velocity water flows. Where solvents may be spilled onto pavers, elastomeric urethanes and certain water based sealers have been successfully used to prevent their penetration. Likewise, special urethane sealers have been used to seal and stabilize joint sand subject to propeller wash, jet engine fuels and exhaust in commercial and military airports.
