Yes, but be patient. It's impossible to remove all of the dust before misting with water. On the second and third misting the surfaces of the bricks will begin to clear but some light dust will still adhere. Wind, rain, and foot traffic will remove the remaining dust over several weeks and your bricks will return to their red color.

Answer: 
Yes, it leaves a stain. You can try to power wash the bricks, but you will most likely end up blasting away some of the joint sand as well. Then you'll have to reapply the joint sand and end up with the same stain you started with.

Answer: 
Before the application of QUIKRETE PowerLoc, the pavers must be completely dry, and for best appearance, it is important to remove any sand and dust from the pavers before moistening the sand in the joints. Please contact the QUIKRETE Technical Center at 1-800-282-5828 for assistance.

Answer: 
If your using it to reapply, a 50lb should cover a 350sq patio. Again that also depends on the type of bricks you have and the spacing between them. An initial application on a new paver patio will require several bags.

Answer: 
it covers about 100 square feet for a standard 1/8 inch joint, and doesnt need to be sealed. You need to lightly spray the area after you apply it so the bonding agent is activated. it will become very hard the next day. It costs about $15 for 50lb bag.

One 50lb bag of the PowerLoc Jointing Sand will approximately cover 82ft2 (7.6 m2) for a 1/8” joint width, 42ft2 (3.9 m2) for a 1/4” joint width, 29ft2 (2.7 m2) for a 3/8” joint width, and 16ft2 (1.5 m2) for a 1/2” joint width. This area is based on a standard 2” x 4” x 8” brick, therefore usage will be different for other brick sizes. All yields are approximate and do not include allowance for waste, Read More
One 50lb bag of the PowerLoc Jointing Sand will approximately cover 82ft2 (7.6 m2) for a 1/8” joint width, 42ft2 (3.9 m2) for a 1/4” joint width, 29ft2 (2.7 m2) for a 3/8” joint width, and 16ft2 (1.5 m2) for a 1/2” joint width. This area is based on a standard 2” x 4” x 8” brick, therefore usage will be different for other brick sizes. All yields are approximate and do not include allowance for waste, uneven joint width, etc. For application of the PowerLoc Jointing Sand use a broom, sweep PowerLoc Jointing Sand into the paver joints, filling up to the paver chamfers (shoulders). Then, compact the sand into joint spaces as thoroughly as possible. Next, carefully remove any remaining sand from the paver surface prior to dampening. For the best appearance to be achieved eliminate all jointing sand from surfaces. A minimum of 24 hours drying time is required prior to allowing foot traffic and 48 hours for vehicular traffic on the paver surface. It is recommended that the PowerLoc Jointing Sand not be sealed after it is placed. The cost of the material will depend on your local supplier. Read Less

The color of the PowerLoc varies somewhat by region, based upon the local sand which is available. In some locations, a “dark” version is also available, item #115037. Please visit your local Home Depot store to see what is offered in your area.

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by New and Improved trash! I bought this 6 months ago and have used the entire bag! Why? Because it washes away. I ordered gray and they sent tan colored sand. I called customer service and they will tell you it will turn gray. Wrong! Not only did it remain tan, but it washed away with a light sprinkling rain. This a waste of money and your customer service are untrained and have no clue about your products! I've added a photo so you can view this result after one rain fall. August 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disastrous Results! I used Powerloc Jointing Sand with dimensioned Connecticut Blue stone pavers. The residual film from silicates in the polymeric sand are IMPOSSIBLE to remove and left a very 'patchy' haze on the stone surface. I suspect water from the garden hose hardened the film and I became very frustrated with 'tenacity' of the film in attempting to remove it. I tried a pressure washer (not 180 degree water-how does one find a 180 temp water source?) Uneven water pressure resulted in a patchy and streaky stone surface due to the partial removal of the film that had coated the stone pavers. I then applied a 1:10 ratio of muriatic acid which did nothing. even full-strength muriatic acid-which will harm and possibly kill perimeter garden planting, and finally how water and detergent. None of these methods removed the residual film and small pockets of sand in the 'split-face' texture of the stone that had cured in the natural pockets and cavities. Long and short, this product can cause a cascading series of unnecessary effort, cost and visually horrific results all due to the silicate in the product. Discoloration, haze and unwanted residual sand result in a degraded result to what was once a beautiful natural stone color and texture. I highly recommend against this product. March 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst product ever I've used other polymeric sands before and this by far is the worst. Sand does not bond and comes out in chunks. Dont buy this otherwise you'll spend more time and money trying to fix it. Go to a professional landscaping store and purchase one there. September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Use it as instructed Bought about 8 bags of this to refill brick driveway joints after power washing to remove debris and weeds. You should follow instructions for best results: Apply to dry surfaces only, use a push broom to sweep sand into joints, continue brooming to remove excess product. Some fine dust may remain which is not problematic. Apply a fine mist of water three times, each about 5 minutes apart, being careful not to wash product out of the joints. The remaining dust on the surface will wash off naturally over several days due to rain, wind, foot traffic etc. Don't obsess about the remaining dust. This product will eliminate weeds and dirt in crevices for a very long time. June 22, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Avoid if possible This product was fairly easy to use and we followed the instructions when attempting to redo the joints for a brick driveway. I first powerwashed my driveway and joints to removed some of the old material and gave it a day to dry. I dumped a few bags around the driveway, swept it into the joints. I did not have a vibratory compactor as recommended but took the time to hit each brick two times with the handle of a shovel. I refilled some gaps that opened after hitting the bricks and swept away the excess sand that was in the driveway. I lightly misted it 3 times as recommended and avoided car traffic on the driveway for 2 days with no rainfall during that time period. We had a few rain showers 4-5 days afterwards and sand appears to now be accumulating everywhere with all of the joints washing out. Part of the appeal of this product was the ease of use, price and no-staining feature, however it appears to be making more of a mess with the sand washing away each rainfall. There's probably a better option out there so in my opinion better to keep searching form alternatives. September 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not bond This product did not get even semi hard in most areas, even though I followed all directions. Acts just like regular sand! Stay away from this product. September 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product Recommended 100% After reading all the negative reviews I was hesitant to buy this product, however I know quickrete makes some good products. I placed pavers over a concrete slab for my patio then used powerloc to get into all crevices. I had small joints and the product went in extremely well. I followed the instructions, vibrated the pavers to settle the the powerloc, swept at 45 degree angle then blew off the pavers lightly with leaf blower. I missed the patio four or five times withing the first few hours and the next day it was hard like concrete in the joints. Don't under estimate this product, follow the instructions and you won't be disappointed. It was a little darker than expected, but still looks very nice. April 19, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ruined my pavers The product packaging says spread, spray, lock. But read the fine print instructions. You need to spread and compact then BRUSH OFF ALL OF THE SAND. Then use a leaf blower to REMOVE ALL OF THE DUST before wetting. A leaf blower? They don't tell you that there's a crazy amount of glue in this stuff. If you don't do all of these steps exactly as stated you'll have glued sand sticking to the surface of your pavers, which looks terrible. Avoid this terrible product. July 27, 2015
