EUROSTONE BOND is the first polymeric sand specifically designed for natural stone. It can be used in an application of drainage and non-drainage base systems. It is perfect for stone roads, piazzas, driveways, pathways & stone apron driveways. This complete multi-purpose sand is available in four colors: Beige, Slate Grey, Ivory and Black Diamond.
Non-Drainage application: Make sure the stones are completely fixed in concrete and cannot move.
Drainage application: Use a maximum of 1inch (25mm) of concrete sand as your bedding course to do the final levelling. Install natural stone pavers. Make sure the stones are completely interlocked.
Make sure the sides and top surfaces of stones are dry before applying the EUROSTONE BOND polymeric sand. Sweep EUROSTONE BOND in between the stone joints.
Compact the sand between the joint with the help of a vibrating plate and a hand tamper in restricted area. Sweep off all excess EUROSTONE BOND that is on the stone surface. Ensure that EUROSTONE BOND lies at least 1/8’’ (0.3 mm) below the top of the stones.
Using a leaf blower, remove any EUROSTONE BOND residue from the stone surfaces. Depending on the physical layout, it may be more appropriate to remove residue by using a vacuum unit.
First watering: Watering must be started at the lowest point of the paved surface. From a height of 4 feet (1.2 meters), use a water gun connected to a hose to direct a shower (water gun setting: “shower” or equivalent) of water for 10 to 15 seconds on a section of approximately 75-100 sq. ft. (7-10 sq.m.) Wait 3 to 4 minutes (not longer). NEVER let the stone surface dry before steps 5, 6, 7 and 8 are completed. Proceed to STEP 6.
Second watering: From a height of 4 feet (1.2 meters). shower and rinse simultaneously for 10 to 15 seconds on a section of approximately 75-100 sq. ft.(7-10 sq.m.) so as to eliminate any Eurostone bond residue left on the stones. Any EUROSTONE BOND residue should go directly into the natural stone paver joints. Wait 3 to 4 minutes (no longer). Proceed to STEP 7.
Third watering: From a height of 4 feet (1.2 meters), direct a shower of water on the stone paver surface, showering and rinsing simultaneously, so as to eliminate any EUROSTONE BOND residue, and direct it into the natural stone paver joints. However, stop watering when you see water retention on the natural stone paver joints. Wait 3 to 4 minutes (no longer). Proceed to STEP 8.
Repeat the directions of step 5 to 7 for all other stone areas that have not been showered with water.
IMPORTANT: The water used in steps 5, 6 & 7 will activate a bonding action as well as condense Eurostone bond in the joints. It is important to water the Eurostone bond a total of 3 times, as per steps 5, 6 and 7. Too little water will not properly activate the Eurostone bond and will reduce its final performance. If steps 5 to 8 are not done properly, a white haze may appear on stone paver surface after installation. This is due to excess Eurostone bond residue left on stone surfaces. This haze will dissipate over time. It can also be removed by using GATOR CLEAN efflorescence cleaner.
Do not apply if the paver surface is damp or wet. The damp or wet surface will cause EUROSTONE BOND to prematurely activate and will lead to the polymers sticking on the stone paver surface. Do not apply if the natural stone paver joints are damp or wet. This will prevent the EUROSTONE BOND from properly sliding into the joints and compromise the possibility of obtaining very densely packed joints, which is critical to the product’s performance. Do not use if rain is expected within 1 hour. Avoid excessive watering or flooding of natural stone paver surface. For all natural stone paver surfaces, and particularly around in-ground pools, there must be a slope of 1/8 in. (0.3 cm) per linear foot away from the edge of the pool, or structures, to ensure optimal performance of the EUROSTONE BOND. For the pool coping units, it is mandatory to use mortar in the joints. For the rest of the natural stone paver installation around the pool, you can use EUROSTONE BOND. Do not sweep EUROSTONE BOND over asphalt. Install EUROSTONE BOND a minimum of 1/8 of an inch (0.3 cm) below the natural stone paver surface or erosion may occur. The filled and cured EUROSTONE BOND joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires. The product must only be used as a recessed jointing material.
If using on clay pavers, make sure they are 100% dry. Clay pavers tend to hold moisture, which can prematurely activate the EUROSTONE BOND while the sand is being spread over the paver surface, leaving a residue (always apply on a test area before using the EUROSTONE BOND on clay pavers)
EUROSTONE 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.
Quantity required depends on the shape and size of paving area, the natural stone pavers as well as the width of the joints. For Black Diamond Sand consider a 10% decrease in coverage.

EUROSTONE BOND is recommended for a variety of uses, including pool sides, patios, foot paths, driveways, parking spaces, pavements, etc.
WITH A DRAINAGE BASE SYSTEM : The stone pavers have to be installed on a system composed of 2 layers. The upper layer can have a maximum of 1 in (2.5 cm) of bedding sand. The lower layer must have a minimum of 5 in (12.5 cm) of crushed stone compacted at 95% Proctor density.
WITH A NON-DRAINAGE BASE SYSTEM: (See diagrams below) you must have a minimum 1° top surface slope for proper water runoff for both systems.
