Description

Supersand Bond is a unique mixture of polymer binders and calibrated sand available in Beige, Slate Grey, Ivory and Black Diamond. The installation of Supersand Bond is almost identical to using regular paver joint sand except for the application of water. Once Supersand Bond sets, it becomes very firm and locks between the paver joints while still retaining flexibility and providing a long lasting, durable jointing material. Supersand Bond is recommended for a variety of uses including pool decks, patios, footpaths, driveways, parking spaces, pavements etc.

SUPERSAND BOND INSTALLATION
ON NEW PAVER SURFACE

PREPARATION INFORMATION (Important Notes)

  1. Pavers and slabs must be installed according to ICPI Tech Spec #2 (www.icpi.org) before Supersand Bond installation. If pavers are installed over a concrete slab, (overlay application) GATOR MAXX polymeric sand must be used.
  2. Supersand Bond Technical Data Sheet is available at: AllianceGator.com
  3. 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 Bond to prematurely activate and will lead to the polymers sticking on the paver surface.
  4. Do not apply if the paver joints are damp or wet. This will prevent the Supersand Bond from properly sliding into the joints and obtaining very densely packed joints, which is critical to the products performance.
  5. Temperature must be above 32°F with dry conditions (no rain for at least 1 hour) before installing Supersand Bond.
  6. Avoid excessive watering or flooding of paver surface.
  7. For all paver surfaces, and particularly around in-ground pools there must be a slope of 1/8 inch (0.3 cm) per linear foot away from the edge of the pool, or structures to ensure optimal performance of the Supersand Bond.
  8. 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 Bond.
  9. Do not sweep Supersand Bond over asphalt.
  10. Install Supersand Bond a minimum of 1/8 inch (0.3 cm) below the paver surface or erosion may occur. The filled and cured v joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires. The product must only be used as a recessed jointing material.

Installation Step 1

Step 1

Step 1

Spread Supersand Bond with hard-bristle broom. Make sure the Supersand Bond completely fills the joints. Do not use other materials in the joints.

Installation Step 2

Step 2

Step 2

Leave a layer of Supersand Bond on the surface to aid in vibrating and consolidating Supersand Bond into joints.

Installation Step 3

Step 3

Step 3

Vibrate the Supersand Bond into the paver joints using a vibratory plate compactor. A rubber pad is recommended. A roller compactor is best for slab installation.

Installation Step 4

Step 4

Step 4

Joints should be filled up to 1/8 inch below the edge or chamfer. It is best to compact in several directions to ensure there are no air gaps or voids in the joints. Repeat steps 1-3 to ensure joints are filled and consolidated. Narrow joints require more care to completely fill.

Installation Step 5

Step 5

Step 5

Sweep off excess Supersand Bond from the paved surface, first with a hard-bristle broom, then a soft bristle broom. Take care to leave the height of the polymeric sand at least 1/8 inch below the edge or chamfer of the paver.

Installation Step 6

Step 6

Step 6

Use a leaf blower to remove all remaining Supersand Bond residue from the paved surface.

WATER ACTIVATION (Important Notes)

  1. Work in manageable sections, ideally about 100 sq. ft. at a time, depending on temperature.
  2. Do not allow Supersand Bond to wash out of joint.
  3. Never allow paved surface to dry out during the water activation phase.
  4. Watering must be started at the lowest point of the paved surface.
  5. Use a watering gun connected to a hose. Setting should be set to shower.
Installation Step 7

Step 7

Step 7

Shower water on a specific water area of 100 sq.ft., wait no longer than 2 to 3 minutes. Proceed to STEP 8.

Installation Step 8

Step 8

Step 8

Shower and rinse simultaneously on a section of approximately 100 sq. ft. so as to eliminate any Supersand Bond residue left on the pavers. Any Supersand Bond residue should go directly into the paver joints. Wait no longer than 2 to 3 minutes. Proceed to STEP 9.

Installation Step 9

Step 9

Step 9

Shower and rinse simultaneously, so as to eliminate any Supersand Bond residue. Any residue should go directly into the paver joints. However, stop showering when you see water retention on the paver joints. Wait no longer than 2 to 3 minutes. Proceed to STEP 10. Note: Repeat the directions of steps 7 to 9 for all other areas that have not been showered with water.

Installation Step 10

Step 10

Step 10

Use a leaf blower to remove any excess water remaining on the paver pores and crevices. This blowing action is necessary to help remove any remaining Supersand Bond residue left on paver surfaces from the previous steps.

IMPORTANT The water used in steps 7 to 9 will activate a bonding action as well as condensing Supersand Bond in the joints. It is important to water the Supersand Bond a total of 3 times, as per steps 7, 8 and 9.Too little water will not properly activate the Supersand Bond and will reduce the final performance.

SUPERSAND BOND INSTALLATION
ON AN EXISTING PAVER SURFACE

If using Supersand Bond to replace existing jointing materials, old jointing materials need to be completely cleaned out of the joints and pavers completely dry before installing Supersand Bond. However, be careful not to disturb the bedding material under the pavers. Follow steps 1 to 10 of Supersand Bond installation steps (for a new paver surface).

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 Bond while the sand is being spread over the paver surface, leaving a residue (always apply on a test area before using the Supersand Bond on clay pavers).

Moss:  Supersand Bond 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.

FOR USE ON AND REQUIRED
SUB-SURFACE PREPARATION

Supersand Bond 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 (2.5 cm) of bedding sand. The lower layer must have a minimum of 6 inches (15.4 cm) of crushed stone compacted at 98 % Proctor density. (See diagram on the left).

Set Time

Alliance is the only polymeric sand manufacturer that provides a one-hour setting time. Other polymeric sands require you to come back the following day to finish your work, and potential rainfall during the same day as the sand’s application would normally wash out the sand from the paver joints. But with Alliance, you will be able to collect your dues earlier for work done better and sooner.

Also, who else in the polymeric sand industry but Alliance enables you to perform this work at any temperature above 32°F (0°C), start your season earlier and extend it at least two months? With the competition, you have to wait for Mother Nature to give you a comfortable 59°F (15°C), you get two months less work time and a lower profit margin.
