Did you know that the choice of your outdoor project's finishes can help your paving stones last longer? Add the final touch to your new outdoor space to make it last a lifetime.
Polymeric sand is a combination of granular material that helps lock the fine sand particles together, which ensure that your pavers don’t move over time. By adding water to it, the polymeric sand becomes an impenetrable joint filling solution that locks your paving units.

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 FLEXLOCK SAND G2 missing space on the surface to aid in the vibrating and consolidation of FLEXLOCK SAND G2 into joints. For textured or pre-finished surfaces, we recommend to remove all the sand from the paver or slab surface prior to using the plate or roller compacter.
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.
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.
Shower for a minimum of 30 seconds for 2.8 sq. m. (30 sq. ft.) or until the FLEXLOCK SAND G2 repels the water and the water starts to accumulate on the joints.
