Gator XTreme Edge is the ultimate fiber-reinforced and polymer modified structural edge, which creates a strong and economical edging solution for any hardscape project. Gator XTreme Edge can be used on any traditional, permeable, Gator Base, or overlay application using concrete pavers and slabs or natural and wet cast stones. Gator XTreme Edge offers permanent continuous lateral support.
Always refer to the latest Gator XTreme Edge Technical Data Sheet (TDS) at Flex-lock.com before installing Gator XTreme Edge. Concrete pavers, slabs, Natural and Wet cast stones should be installed according to ICPI Tech Spec 2 and ICPI Tech Spec 10, utilizing industry established best practices for the base, setting bed, and drainage of a hardscape project.
Remove all excess bedding sand / chip stones at the edge of the hardscape project. Gator XTreme Edge will rest on a solid base material. For a Gator Base installation, cut the Gator Base flush with the edge of the hardscape project. Remove the bedding material and excavate an area approximately 4" (10 cm) wide by 1” (25 mm) deep in the native soils along the edge.
Mix 1/2 US gallon (1.9 liters) of water with one bag 50 lb (22.7 kg) of Gator XTreme Edge until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.
1/2 US gallon = 2 quarts = 64 fl.oz = 1.9 liters
Create a triangular shaped wedge of Gator XTreme Edge against the side of the pavers, slabs, natural or wet cast stones. With the help of a trowel spread approximately 4’’ (10 cm) of Gator XTreme Edge mixture at a 30° angle over the base material or native soil in a Gator Base application. Fill any void space created from the removal of the bedding layer material. Ensure that the Gator XTreme Edge covers at least 1” (25 mm) of the vertical side of the paver or 1/2 the height of the hardscaping material being used.
Final compaction of the paved surface with polymeric sand should take place while the Gator XTreme Edge is still curing and when applying Nitro sand, a 90 minutes wait will be required.
