Eurostone Bond

For natural stone paver joints up to 1.5" (3.8 cm)

Description

EUROSTONE BOND is the first polymeric sand, that meets ASTM C144 gradation, specifically designed for natural stone pavers. It can be used in an application for traditional and overlay base systems. It is perfect for stone roads, piazzas, driveways, pathways & stone apron driveways. This complete multipurpose sand is available in four colors: Beige, Slate Grey, Ivory and Black Diamond. It sets above the freezing temperature 32°F (0°C) and can be used for joints up to a maximum of 1.5″ (3.8 cm).

Features

  • Can be used for stone joints up to a maximum of 1.5″ (3.8 cm).
  • Helps prevent weed sprouting and the damage caused by insects.
  • Helps prevent erosion due to climatic conditions, such as wind, rain and freezing.
  • Sets at above freezing temperature 32°F (0°C).
  • EUROSTONE BOND can be applied in traditional base systems, sets within 1 hour after water
    activation at above 32°F (0°C) (No rain should occur within 1 hour after water activation).
  • EUROSTONE BOND can be applied in Overlay base systems, sets within 24 hours after
    water activation at above 32°F (0°C) (No rain should occur within 24 hours after water activation).
  • Does not haze natural stone pavers.
  • Waterproof bags can be laid flat and stored outdoors. (Lay bag flat on its back, so front of the bag
    is facing you.)
  • It is mandatory to have a minimum 2% top surface slope for proper water run off.
  • Will resist mechanical brooming.

Ideal for

  • Stone roads
  • Piazzas
  • Driveways
  • Pathways
  • Paved sloping areas

IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTES

  1. Always refer to the latest Eurostone Technical Data Sheet (TDS) at AllianceGator.com before installing Eurostone bond.
  2. Do not apply if the natural stone paver surfaces and joints are damp or wet. The damp or wet surfaces and joints will cause Eurostone bond to prematurely activate and will lead to the polymers sticking on the stones paver surfaces and properly sliding into the joints and obtaining very densely packed joints, which is critical to the products performance. Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. Avoid excessive watering or flooding of natural stone paver surfaces.
  3. For all natural stone paver surfaces, and particularly around in ground pools there must be a slope of 1/8" (3 mm) 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.
  4. Do not sweep Eurostone bond over asphalt.
  5. The Eurostone sand level must be at least 1/8" (3 mm) below top of the natural stone paver’s surface or 1/8" (3 mm) below the chamfer or erosion may occur.
  6. The filled and cured polymeric sand joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires. The product must only be used as a recessed jointing material.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

METHOD for applying EUROSTONE BOND for a TRADITIONAL BASE SYSTEM on a NEW STONE SURFACE

Installation Step 1 Installation Step 1

Step 1

Step 1

Use a maximum of 1 inch (25 mm) of concrete sand as your bedding course to do the final levelling. Install natural stone pavers. Make sure the natural stone pavers are completely interlocked.

Installation Step 2

Step 2

Step 2

Make sure the sides and top surfaces of the natural stone pavers are dry before applying the EUROSTONE BOND polymeric sand. Sweep EUROSTONE BOND in between the stone joints.

Installation Step 3

Step 3

Step 3

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 natural stone pavers surface. Insure that EUROSTONE BOND lies at least 1/8 in. (3 mm) below the top of the natural stone pavers or erosion may occur. The filled and cured polymeric sand joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires. Repeat twice the sweeping and compacting of the joint to ensure a good consolidation of the joint.

Installation Step 4

Step 4

Step 4

Using a leaf blower, remove any EUROSTONE BOND residue from the natural stone pavers surfaces. Depending on the physical layout, it may be more appropriate to remove residue by using a vacuum unit.

Installation Step 5

Step 5

Step 5

Use a water gun connected to a hose to direct a shower (water gun setting: “shower” or equivalent) 4 feet high (1.2 m) so that it lands on a total area of 75 sq. ft. (7 sq. m.) of natural stone pavers for 10 to 15 seconds. Wait 3 to 4 minutes (no longer), then repeat this step twice, to remove residues from EUROSTONE BOND. However, stop watering if you notice water retention on the joints of natural stone pavers.

Installation Step 6

Step 6

Step 6

Repeat the directions of step 5 for all other paved areas that have not been showered with water. The water used in steps 5 & 6 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. Too little water will not properly activate the EUROSTONE BOND and will reduce the final performance.

IMPORTANT: If steps 5 & 6 are not done properly, a white haze may appear on natural stone pavers surface after installation. This is due to excess EUROSTONE BOND residue left on natural stone pavers surfaces. This haze will dissipate over time. It can also be removed by using GATOR CLEAN efflorescence cleaner.

METHOD for applying EUROSTONE BOND on an EXISTING NATURAL STONE PAVERS SURFACE

  • Remove existing jointing material. Be careful not to disturb the bedding material under the natural stone pavers. Natural stone pavers must be completely dry before installing a minimum of 1 1/4″ (32 mm) deep into the joints. Insure that EUROSTONE BOND lies at least 1/8 in. (3 mm) below the top of the natural stone pavers or erosion may occur. The filled and cured polymeric sand joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires.
  • Follow step 2 to step 6 of NEW STONE JOB instructions (above).

METHOD for applying EUROSTONE BOND for an OVERLAY BASE SYSTEM for a NEW NATURAL STONE PAVERS SURFACE

  • Make sure the natural stone pavers are completely fixed in permeable mortar sand and cannot move.
  • Make sure the sides and top surfaces of the natural stone pavers are dry before applying the EUROSTONE BOND polymeric sand. Sweep EUROSTONE BOND in between the natural stone pavers 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 natural stone pavers surface. Insure that EUROSTONE BOND lies at least 1/8 in. (3 mm) below the top of the natural stone pavers or erosion may occur. The filled and cured polymeric sand joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires. Repeat twice the sweeping and compacting of the joint to ensure a good consolidation of the joint.
  • Using a leaf blower, remove any EUROSTONE BOND residue from the natural stone pavers surfaces. Depending on the physical layout, it may be more appropriate to remove residue by using a vacuum unit.

Too little water will not properly activate the EUROSTONE BOND and will reduce the final performance.

WARNING

Do not apply if the natural stone pavers 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 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 obtaining very densely packed joints, which is critical to the products performance. Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. 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. (3 mm) 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.

The product must only be used as a recessed jointing material.

MOSS

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.

Coverage

Quantity required depends on the shape and size of the natural stone pavers as well as the width of the
joints. For Black Diamond Sand consider a 10% decrease in coverage.
