• Excess Sand Joint
Stabilizer on the paver surface may exhibit traffic patterns when subjected to
high heat or heavy vehicular traffic.
• Not intended for polished
stone or vertical surfaces.
• Not for use around pools
• For best performance, sand
joints should be no greater than 1/2-inch in width.
• Not intended for use in
place of Portland cement mortar or similar hard jointing materials.
• When applying to
non-porous paver surfaces, limit application to the sand joints.
• Not intended to create a
continuous film on the paver surfaces. To enhance the color of paver surfaces,
use PROSOCO’s Paver Kare® Paver Enhancer. To enhance the color and produce
a protective surface sheen, use PROSOCO’s Paver Kare® Deep
Sheen or Paver Kare® Deep Sheen WB.

Protect people, vehicles, property, plants, painted surfaces and all non-masonry surfaces from product, residue, splash, fumes and wind drift. Use polyethylene or other proven protective material. Pavers must be clean and dry before treatment. Call Customer Care at 800-255-4255, or visit our web site at www.prosoco.com for cleaning recommendations.
Sweep and vibrate dry sand into the joints. Take care to fill the joints completely to desired level. The surface of the sand joint should be slightly below adjacent paving. Sweep or blow sand off the surface of the pavers.
If vibration equipment is not available, wet sanded surfaces with water to aid in compacting the sand joints. Sweep additional sand into the joints as required and allow wetted surfaces to dry before proceeding with application.
Do not use stone dust as joint sand. Excess dust or fine particles in the joint sand may compromise penetration and performance of Sand Joint Stabilizer. Joint sand should be sharp, washed, natural sand or crushed stone capable of passing through a No. 16 (1.18 mm) sieve with no more than 10% passing through a No. 200 sieve (75 μm).Surface and Air Temperatures
Temperatures should be 50-90°F (10-32°C).Equipment
Apply using low-pressure spray equipment (40 psi maximum) or pump-up sprayer. Do not atomize or vaporize. Storage and Handling
Store in a cool, dry place. Keep container tightly closed when not dispensing. Do not alter or mix with other chemicals. Published shelf life assumes upright storage of factory-sealed containers in a dry place. Maintain temperature of 45-100°F 7-38°C). Keep from freezing. Do not double stack pallets. Dispose of unused product and container in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.APPLICATION
Before use read “Preparation” and “Safety Information.”
ALWAYS TEST each surface for suitability, and desired results before overall application. Use the following application instructions. Let surface dry thoroughly before inspection and approval.Dilution
Apply as packaged. Do not dilute or alter, or use for applications other than specified.Typical Coverage Rates
Coverage varies based on paver texture and porosity. Always test.Concrete Pavers

a small area of each surface to confirm suitability and desired results before starting overall application. Test with the same equipment, recommended surface preparation and application procedures planned for general application.Application Instructions
Apply wet-on-wet to a dry and absorbent surface.
- Wet the entire paved surface with Sand Joint Stabilizer. Allow the application to penetrate.
- Apply a saturating coat to the sand joints. Concentrate the spray stream along the sand joints to encourage deep penetration.
- Lightly broom out any pools or puddles or use clean, absorbent towels to pick up excess material that does not penetrate the surface within 20 minutes.
- If additional hardening of treated joints is desired, repeat steps 2-3 above.
Joints which are not adequately filled and compacted may settle or “wash out” with the initial application. If this occurs, allow the treated surfaces to dry, sweep and vibrate dry sand into any open joints, and reapply according to the instructions above.NOTE:
Excess Sand Joint Stabilizer on the paver surface may exhibit traffic patterns when subjected to high heat or heavy vehicular traffic. Remove tire marks with Enviro Klean® 2010 All Surface Cleaner or contact PROSOCO Customer Care at 1-800-255-4255 for cleaning recommendations.
