  • Helps prevent weeds and damage caused by burrowing insects.
  • Helps prevent erosion due to wind, rain and freeze/thaw cycles.
  • FLEXLOCK SAND G2 sets within 1 hour after water activation at above 0 C (32°F),
    (no rain within 1hour after water activation).
  • No Dust, Haze Free, No Blower, and one watering.
  • Intact pallets can be stored outside.

Clay Pavers

If used on clay pavers, make sure they are 100% dry. Clay pavers tend to hold moisture which can prematurely activate the FLEXLOCK SAND G2 while the sand is being spread over the paver surface, leaving a residue. Always apply on a test area before using the FLEXLOCK SAND G2 on clay pavers.

Moss

FLEXLOCK SAND G2 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 concrete pavers as well as the width of the joints.

FOR USE ON AND REQUIRED SUB-SURFACE PREPARATION

FLEXLOCK SAND G2 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 2,5 cm (1 inch) of bedding sand. The lower layer must have a minimum of 15 cm (6 inches) of crushed stone compacted at 98 % Proctor density. (See diagrams below.)

NEVER USE FLEXLOCK SAND G2 WHEN PAVERS ARE INSTALLED ON A CONCRETE SLAB. INSTEAD, USE ALLIANCE FLEXLOCK ULTRA SAND G2

FLEXLOCK SAND G2 INSTALLATION STEPS
(FOR A NEW PAVER SURFACE)

Installation Step 1

Step 1

Step 1

Spread FLEXLOCK SAND G2 with hard-bristle broom. Make sure the FLEXLOCK SAND G2 completely fills the joints. Do not use other materials in the joints. Leave a layer of FLEXLOXK SAND G2 on the surface to aid in the vibrating and consolidation of FLEXLOCK SAND G2 into joints.

Installation Step 2

Step 2

Step 2

Vibrate the FLEXLOCK SAND G2 into the paver joints using a vibratory plate compactor. A rubber pad is recommended. A roller compactor is best for slab installation. Joints should be filled up to 3mm (1/8 in.) 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 and 2 to ensure joints are filled and consolidated. Narrow joints require more care to completely fill.

Installation Step 3

Step 3

Step 3

Sweep off excess FLEXLOCK SAND G2 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 3mm (1/8 in.) below the edge or chamfer of the paver.

IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTES FOR G2

  • A Pavers and slabs must be installed according to ICPI Tech Spec #2 non-overlay (www.icpi.org) before FLEXLOCK SAND G2 installation.
  • B Always refer to the latest FLEXLOCK SAND G2 Technical Data Sheet at AllianceGator.com before installing FLEXLOCK SAND G2.
  • C 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 FLEXLOCK SAND G2 to prematurely activate and will lead to the polymers sticking on the paver surface.
  • D Do not apply if the paver joints are damp or wet. This will prevent the FLEXLOCK SAND G2 from properly sliding into the joints and obtaining very densely packed joints, which is critical to the product’s performance.
  • E Temperature must be above 0°C ( 32°F) in dry conditions and no rain for at least 1 hour after water activation.
  • F Avoid excessive watering or flooding of paver surface.
  • G For all paver surfaces, and particularly around in-ground pools, there must be a slope of 3 mm (1/8 in.) per 30 linear cm (linear foot) away from the edge of the pool or structures to ensure optimal performance of the FLEXLOCK SAND G2.
  • H 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 FLEXLOCK SAND G2.
  • I Do not sweep FLEXLOCK SAND G2 over asphalt.
  • J Install FLEXLOCK SAND G2 a minimum of 3mm (1/8 in.) below the paver surface or erosion may occur. The filled and cured polymeric sand joints should never be in direct contact with foot traffic or tires. Joints should be filled up to 3 mm (1/8 in.) below the edge or chamfer.

IMPORTANT WATER ACTIVATION NOTES FOR G2

  • A Work in manageable sections, ideally about 4,5 sq. m. (50 sq. ft). at a time, depending on temperature.
  • B Do not allow FLEXLOCK SAND G2 to wash out of joint.
  • C Never allow paved surface to dry out during the water-activation phase.
  • D Watering must be started at the lowest point of the paved surface.
  • E Use a watering gun connected to a hose. Set to shower.

FLEXLOCK SAND G2 INSTALLATION
(FOR AN EXISTING PAVER SURFACE)

When using FLEXLOCK SAND G2 to replace existing jointing materials, old jointing materials need to be completely cleaned out of the joints and pavers completely dry before installing FLEXLOCK SAND G2. Be careful not to disturb the bedding material under the pavers. Follow steps 1 to 4 of FLEXLOCK SAND G2 installation steps for a new paver surface.
