Gator Stone Bond

Liquid Stone Stabilizer For pathways, patios & walkways

Description

Gator Stone Bond is a unique blend of polymers designed to bind together a wide variety of small aggregates commonly referred to as decomposed granites (dg): pathway mixes, crusher runs, concrete sand etc.

Features

  • Easy one-coat process
  • Creates a strong bond on a wide variety of aggregates
  • Resists surface erosion from both rain water and foot traffic

Application & Instructions

METHOD of application of Gator Stone Bond for a NEW PAVER JOB:
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. AGGREGATE SELECTION FOR FINAL SURFACE: Select an aggregate that contains a variety of sizes. For instance, crushed stone mixes such as 3/8 minus, 1/4 minus or 3/16 minus work well with Gator Stone Bond, where as single size aggregates like 3/8 rock or pea gravel are not suitable. Screenings with extremely high fine content are not suitable either. To ensure compatibility of selected aggregate with GATOR STONE BOND, prepare a test area.
  2. STRUCTURAL STONE BASE PREPARATION: Before starting the actual project, factors such as climate, native soil type, amount of use, should be taken into consideration. As a rule of thumb, “The better the base preparation, the better the results.”

Option 1 – For optimum performance, install 4 to 6 in. of 3/4 minus crushed stone, then compact using a vibratory plate compactor.

Option 2 – Install 2 to 4 in. of 3/4 minus or 3/8 minus, 1/4 minus or 3/16 minus, then compact using a vibratory plate compactor. In restricted areas where a compactor will not fit, use a hand tamper.

  1. SURFACE AGGREGATE: Spread a minimum of 1” surface aggregate over the compacted structural stone base. Rake or screed to the desired level, and slope to allow water run off. Do not compact until after Gator Stone Bond has been applied.
  2. APPLY THE GATOR STONE BOND: Using a watering can or pump sprayer, apply the Gator Stone Bond to the surface at the rate of 15 sq. ft. (1.4 sq. m.) per gallon for residential pedestrian use, or 10 sq. ft. (0.9 sq. m.) per gallon for commercial pedestrian use. Allow Gator Stone Bond to fully penetrate through the material
  3. COMPACTION: While surface is still damp but not saturated, compact the surface with a vibratory plate compactor; 2 or 3 passes are recommended. In restricted areas where a compactor will not fit, use a hand tamper. The better the compaction, the better the results.

Instructions for rebuilding AN EXISTING SURFACE:

  1. Scarify or rototill at least 1 inch of the surface, break up any clumps, making any necessary repairs, and add new surface aggregate as needed.
  2. Apply GATOR STONE BOND at the rate of 15 sq. ft. (1.4 sq. m.)  per gallon; allow liquid to penetrate.
  3. Compact using a vibratory plate compactor. In restricted areas where a compactor will not fit, use a hand tamper.

Instructions for maintaining AN EXISTING SURFACE:

  1. Make repairs as needed.
  2. Apply Gator Stone Bond at the rate of 20 to 45 sq. ft (1.9 to 4.1 sq. m.) per gallon. Some judgement will be needed, as consideration for absorption and desired results should be taken into account.
  3. Compact any loose areas.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  1. Gator Stone Bond is not a sealer, and we do not recommend using it as such.
  2. Where the vibratory plate will not reach, use a hand tamper or a block of wood and a hammer, compact corners and other hard to reach areas.
  3. All crushed stone aggregates are not created equal, when in doubt, do a test area.
  4. Gator Stone Bond does work on sands, but sands are not considered as strong “structurally speaking” as a crushed stone mix with larger size stones like a 3/8 minus would have.
  5. Gator Stone Bond may slightly darken the crushed stone mix.
  6. Gator Stone Bond is not concrete, expect that some surface aggregates will become loose over time.
  7. In some instances a crack may appear, (to fix, see instructions on maintaining an existing surface).
  8. Slope the surface with a minimum of 2 degrees so water will run off.
  9. Form or taper the edges (if you choose to form, leave them in place when done).
  10. Allow 24 to 48 hours at a temperature above 59°F (15°C) for surface to cure.
  11. Do not apply Gator Stone Bond if rain is expected within 48 hours.
  12. Please store Gator Stone Bond container at above 32°F (0°C)
