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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. For the rest of the natural stone paver installation around the pool, you can use EUROSTONE BOND. Do not sweep EUROSTONE BOND over asphalt. 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. The product must only be used as a recessed jointing material.
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 the natural stone pavers as well as the width of the
joints. For Black Diamond Sand consider a 10% decrease in coverage.

FOR USE ON AND REQUIRED SUB-SURFACE PREPARATION EUROSTONE BOND is recommended for a variety of uses, including pool sides, patios, foot paths, driveways, parking spaces, pavements etc.
WITH AN TRADITIONAL OR OVERLAY BASE SYSTEM: (See diagrams below). You must have a minimum 2% top surface slope for proper water runoff for both systems.
