For general sand bedded paving areas we recommend the use of fine washed kiln dried jointing sand. This is available from iPAVE and most major hardware stores.

After the pavers have been laid sweep the dry sand into the joints with a medium to coarse broom.

If the joints settle more than desired then repeat this step filling the joints to the top

It may be necessary to repeat this process once or twice over the first few weeks to fill the joints

Note this method of laying & grouting is not recommended on areas with excessive slope over 5 degrees as the sand could wash out

DO NOT USE ACID.

Rigid Motar Grouting

For pool copings, paving etc mortar/glue fixed to a reinforced concrete slab or surround we recommend wet grouting with Sanded Ready Grout cement based grout available in colours to suit all the iPAVE colour range.

It is also possible to grout using clean washed, salt free, sand and cement mixed 3 parts sand to one part cement and oxide to suit your colour scheme, making sure you weigh and thoroughly mix the various components so as in the event the grout needs to be mixed in more than one batch the colour will be even from one batch to the next.

Squgee or rub the grout into the joints in areas of approximately two metre square at a time washing each area thoroughly with a sponge as you go.

It is also possible to use the flexible grouting method described above depending on the slope on the pavers

Please Note: All cement based grout must be washed off absoutly thoroughly with clean water and a sponge before it commences to set Changing the washing water regularly.

DO NOT USE ACID.
Flexible Cobble Grouting

For general sand bedded cobble paved areas we recommend the use of crusher dust. This is available from most sand and gravel/landscape yards.

After the cobbles have been laid and lightly compacted sweep the crusher dust into the joints with a medium to coarse broom. Wet the crusher dust down to compact it into the joints using a hose with the nozzle set to give a fine high pressure mist. Spray across the surface of the cobble at an angle do not spray directly into the joints as this will only erode the crusher dust out of the joints.

If the joints settle more than desired then repeat this step filling the joints to the top.

It may be necessary to repeat this process once or twice over the first few weeks to compact and fill the joints

Note this method of laying grouting is not recommended on areas with excessive slope over 5 degrees as the crusher dust could wash out

DO NOT USE ACID.
