SRW Z3 Poly Sand

Uses & Properties

  • Zero Haze: Portland-free formula cleanly sweeps to reduce any material left on the paver surface.

  • Zero Dust: Polymers bind to each other and the sand particles
    creating anti-dusting results.

  • Zero Problems: Provides protection against unexpected rain events - rain safe in 10 minutes.

  • Paver Joints up to 2˝

  • Concrete Paver Joints

  • Driveways

  • Walkways

  • Patios

  • False Joints

  • Concrete Overlays

Directions For Installation

  1. Install pavers using manufacturer’s guidelines for bedding, leveling and installation. Fully clean off debris from the project area.

  2. Installations should have a proper drainage layer of sand with a depth of 1" (2.54 cm). In addition, weep holes need to be added to concrete overlays.

  3. If existing project, properly clean out joints before applying polymeric sand and skip to step C.

  4. Compact pavers thoroughly using a rubber-plated compactor.

  5. If compactor is not rubber-plated, cover pavers with a woven fabric while compacting to help protect paver surface from damage.

  6. Pavers must be completely dry before installing polymeric sand. Wait 24 hours after rain

  7. Gently tumble bag, then cut the bottom and apply Pavermate Z3™ evenly over the surface.

  8. Spread sand into joints, completely filling to the full depth of the pavers.

  9. Avoid pushing sand over long distances.

  10. Remove excess sand from surface of pavers before compacting.

  11. Compact filled joints using a rubber-plated compactor.

  12. Repeat compacting and filling (steps C - E) if necessary.

  13. Remove excess sand from paver surface using a soft bristle broom and set the joint height with a leaf blower on idle.

  14. Once complete, joint height should be filled to 1/8" (.32 cm) below the top of the paver.

  15. Working in sections up to 200 sq. ft. (18.58 sq. m.), water the section for a total of 2 minutes.

  16. Do not allow the section to dry during the 2 minute watering:

  17. Use hose with a sprayer attachment set to “mist” or similar light setting. Mist area until the surface is wet.

  18. Next, set hose to “light shower” to allow more water over the area. Repeat shower two times over the section.

  19. Use a screwdriver to test for proper moisture depth of at least 1" (2.54 cm). If depth is not achieved, immediately wet the area with a shower setting.

  20. Once moisture depth is achieved, blow off excess water using a leaf blower

  21. Rain safe 10 minutes after joint activation.

  22. A flexible joint is a sign that reaction has occurred but is not completely cured.

  23. A dry environment is important to allow joints to fully cure. For best performance, install when no rain is forecasted for 24 hours.

  24. Wait 28 days prior to cleaning or sealing.
