Supersand G2

POLYMERIC SAND FOR PAVER
AND NATURAL STONE JOINTS UP TO 2”

NO DUST • HAZE FREE • NO BLOWER • ONE WATERING

RAPID SET TECHNOLOGY

Description

(FOR RESIDENTIAL APPLICATIONS)

SUPERSAND 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. SUPERSAND G2 is recommended for a variety of uses including pool decks, patios, footpaths, driveways, parking spaces, pavements, etc. Available in Beige and Slate Grey.

Features

  • Can be used for joints up to a maximum of 5 cm (2”) and its ASTM C144 gradation allows use in even the tightest joints
  • OSHA cristalline silica compliant (OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1153)
  • Helps prevent weeds and damage caused by burrowing insects
  • Helps prevent erosion due to wind, rain and freeze/thaw cycles
  • For Drainage application, Rapid Set rain safe 15 minutes after water activation. Works above 0°C (32°F).
  • No Dust, Haze Free, No Blower, and one watering
  • Waterproof bags can be laid flat and stored outdoors

Clay Pavers

If used on clay pavers, make sure they are 100% dry. Clay pavers tend to hold moisture which can prematurely activate the SUPERSAND G2 while the sand is being spread over the paver surface, leaving a residue. Always apply on a test area before using the SUPERSAND G2 on clay pavers.

Moss

SUPERSAND 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.

MAINTENANCE

When maintaining the paver surface, apply Gator 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).

Coverage

Quantity required depends on the shape and size of the concrete pavers as well as the width of the joints.

Please Note: When maintaining the paver surface, apply Gator 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).

SUPERSAND 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).

NEVER USE SUPERSAND G2 WHEN PAVERS ARE INSTALLED ON A CONCRETE SLAB. INSTEAD, USE ALLIANCE GATOR MAXX G2

SUPERSAND G2 INSTALLATION STEPS (FOR A NEW PAVER SURFACE)

Installation Step 1

Step 1

Step 1

Spread SUPERSAND G2 with hard-bristle broom. Make sure the SUPERSAND G2 completely fills the joints. Do not use with other materials in the joints. Leave a layer of SUPERSAND G2 on the surface to aid in the vibrating and consolidation of SUPERSAND 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.

Installation Step 2

Step 2

Step 2

Vibrate the SUPERSAND 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 3 mm (1/8”) below the paver surface. 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.

Installation Step 3

Step 3

Step 3

Sweep off excess SUPERSAND G2 from the paved surface, first with a hard-bristle broom, then a soft-bristle broom. Take care to leave the height of SUPERSAND G2 at least 3 mm (1/8”) below the paver surface.

Installation Step 4

Step 4

Step 4

Shower for a minimum of 30 seconds for 2.8 sq. m. (30 sq. ft.) or until the SUPERSAND G2 repels the water and the water starts to accumulate on the joints.

IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTES FOR G2

  • A Always refer to the latest SUPERSAND G2 Technical Data Sheet (TDS) at AllianceGator.com before installing SUPERSAND G2.
  • B Pavers and slabs must be installed according to ICPI Tech Spec #2 non-overlay (www.icpi.org) before SUPERSAND G2 installation.
  • C Pavers’ sides and top surfaces must be completely dry. Do not apply if the paver surface is damp or wet. The damp or wet surface will cause SUPERSAND G2 to prematurely activate and will lead to the polymers sticking on the paver surface.
  • D Do not apply if the paver joints are damp or wet. This will prevent the SUPERSAND G2 from properly sliding into the joints and obtaining very densely packed joints, which is critical to the product’s performance.
  • E Temperature must be above 0°C (32°F) in dry conditions and no rain for at least 15 minutes after water activation.
  • F For all paver surfaces, and particularly around in-ground pools, there must be a minimum slope of 3 mm (1/8”) per 30 cm linear (linear foot) away from the edge of the pool or structures to ensure optimal performance of the SUPERSAND G2.
  • G For the pool coping units, it is mandatory to use mortar in the joints. For the rest of the paver installation around the pool, you can use SUPERSAND G2.
  • H Do not sweep SUPERSAND G2 over asphalt.
  • I Install SUPERSAND G2 a minimum of 3 mm (1/8”) below the paver surface or erosion may occur. The filled and cured polymeric sand joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires.
  • J 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.

IMPORTANT WATER ACTIVATION NOTES FOR G2

  • A Use a watering gun connected to a hose. Set to shower.
  • B Watering must be started at the lowest point of the paved surface.
  • C Never allow paved surface to dry out during the water-activation phase.
  • D Do not allow SUPERSAND G2 to wash out of joint.
  • E Shower for a minimum of 30 seconds for 2.8 sq. m. (30 sq. ft.) or until the SUPERSAND G2 repels the water and the water starts to accumulate on the joints.

SUPERSAND G2 INSTALLATION
(FOR AN EXISTING PAVER SURFACE)

Remove existing jointing material. Be careful not to disturb the bedding material under the pavers. Pavers must be completely dry before installing SUPERSAND G2. Follow steps 1 to 4 of SUPERSAND G2 installation steps for a new paver surface.
