PERMEABLE CHIPS MADE EASY

Permeable Stone
For Permeable Paver Joints (Graded ASTM NO.9 Granite Stone)

Description

GATOR AQUA ROCK is manufactured to meet ASTM No.9 requirements for permeable paver joint units. The calibrated gradation obtained from the fractured high-strength granite makes it the ideal product for the bedding course & jointing material to collect surface water run-off and help stabilize interlocking paver surfaces.

Features

  • Graded to meet ASTM No.9
  • High strength granite stone for long-term use
  • Helps collect roof & surface water run-off
  • Helps prevent erosion
  • Reduction of storm water rate
  • Calibrated for the majority of permeable pavers
  • Long-term high infiltration performance

Ideal For

  • Driveways, Parking Lots, Patios & Walkways
  • Drainage applications
  • Bedding and jointing material

Application & Instructions

NOTE: The minimum slope of the soil sub-grade should be 0.5%. Actual slope of soil sub-grade will depend on the drainage design and exfiltration type. All drainpipes, observation wells, overflow pipes, geotextile (if applicable) and impermeable liner (if applicable) should be in place per the drawings prior to or during placement of the sub-base and base, depending on their location. Care must be taken not to damage drainpipes during compaction and paving. No mud or sediment can be left on the base or bedding aggregates. If they are contaminated, they must be removed and replaced with clean materials.

BEDDING COURSE

1. Spread GATOR AQUA ROCK bedding material over base course. Bedding course should be 2’’ (50mm) of GATOR AQUA ROCK.
2. The surface tolerance of the screeded GATOR AQUA ROCK bedding layer shall be ±3/8 in (10 mm) over a 10 ft (3 m) straight edge.
3. Do not subject screeded bedding material to any pedestrian or vehicular traffic before paving unit installation begins.

JOINTING MATERIAL AND PERMEABLE PAVER UNITS

1. Lay the pavers in the selected pattern. Cut pavers and place along the edges, no piece should be smaller than 1/3 of a whole unit. To increase strength pattern in vehicular applications, we recommand laying the pattern in a 45 degrees to traffic flow.
2. For applications such as driveways, we recommend that the edge restraints be installed with a ready-mix concrete and reinforced with reinforcing steel.
3. Sweep GATOR AQUA ROCK to fill joints.
4. Remove excess GATOR AQUA ROCK on the surface by sweeping pavers clean.
5. Compact and set the pavers into the bedding material using a low-amplitude, 75-90 Hz plate compactor capable of at least 4,000 lbs (18 kN) centrifugal compaction force. This will require at least two passes with the plate compactor.
6. After compaction insure that the joints will be fill up-to 1/8” from the top of the pavers and add or remove any excess of GATOR AQUA ROCK jointing material.

NOTE: The minimum slope of the finished pavement surface should be 1%. The surface of the pavers may be 1/8 to 1/4 in. (3 to 6 mm.) above the final elevations after compaction. This helps compensate for possible minor settling which is normal to pavement.

Coverage

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

 

1 bag of GATOR AQUA ROCK will cover on average, for a 60 mm paver, an area of 20 to 25 sq.ft. (1.86 to 2.32 meters).

 

For more demanding jobs, GATOR AQUA ROCK is also offered in a 2,200 pound Super-Sack format.

1 Super Sack of GATOR AQUA ROCK will cover on average, for a 60mm paver, 880 to 1100 sq.ft. (82 to 102 meters).
