Sometimes called filter cloth or soil separation fabric. A layer of woven or non-woven fabric placed between the subgrade and base to prevent the two layers from mixing under repetitive traffic loading.
A layer of specified material of a designed thickness placed on the subgrade to support the pavement surface. In an Interlocking Concrete Pavers, the most common base material is a compacted layer of class 2 road base.
The sand used to fill the joint spaces between pavers to achieve vertical interlock. This sand must be clean, sharp, durable and well graded. Generally, it is best to use the same washed concrete sand ASTM C33) used for the bedding layer as the joint sand. This is especially important in vehicular trafficked ICP. Go Pavers goes behond the recommendation and use in ALL our installation Polymeric sand insted of a joint sand.
is a high-tech mix of graded sand and binder, specially formulated for the filling of narrow or wide joints when installing pavers or slabs, or when replacing existing joints. Unlike conventional sand, it stays in place and remains stable. The Polymeric sand is brushed into the joints between the pavers, then a light amount water is sprayed over the entire pavers area. The water activates the polymers that bind the grains of sand together creating a solid yet flexible joint. Polymeric sand will not wash out of joints and will maintain its bond season after season even in harsh climate.
