Answer

The QUIKRETE® All Purpose Sand does not have to be removed. QUIKRETE® PowerLoc Jointing Sand or Polymeric Jointing Sand can be used for this application. These products are designed to be swept between pavers and will harden once hydrated. When using these products to fill the gaps between pavers, it is essential to remove any residual dust from the face of the pavers prior to adding water. This can be accomplished with lightly passing a leaf blower over the surface after it has been compacted.

whats the difference between this and Perma-sand?

Asked by David September 1, 2018

Answer

QUIKRETE® PowerLoc® Jointing Sand is graded sand blended with a polymer binder specifically designed for filling joints between interlocking pavers, brick, patio block and concrete slabs. Sakrete PermaSand is produced by a different manufacturer, which makes us unable to comment on its description or level of performance.

can this be used to fill concrete slab joints?

Asked by KS October 18, 2017
2
Answers

QUIKRETE® PowerLoc Jointing Sand may be used to fill concrete slab joints as long as the joints are not wider than ½ inch and water can drain completely through the concrete slab joints without puddling. The surface of the concrete must be clean and dry before placement and be sure to remove any dry material left on the concrete surface prior to the application of water, because this could cause hazing. Also be careful not to wash the QUIKRETE® PowerLoc Jointing Sand out of the joints onto the concrete while applying the water. You may also consider QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Self-Leveling Sealant, which is specifically designed for flowing into horizontal crevices and ideal for general purpose horizontal joint or crack sealing applications, for your application. The ratio of joint/crack width to depth should be 2 to 1, with the depth never less than 1/8” or greater than 1/2”. The use of a QUIKRETE® Backer Rod (No. 6917) is recommended to achieve an appropriate joint/crack depth if the joint/crack is too deep and to prevent 3 sided adhesion. The application area must be clean, dry, frost free, sound and free of any oils, greases, or incompatible sealers, paints, or coatings that may interfere with adhesion. Always wear impervious gloves, such as nitrile, when working with Polyurethanes. Please reference the product packaging or data sheet (https://www.quikrete.com/pdfs/data_sheet-polyurethane%20self-leveling%20sealant%208660-10.pdf ) for complete precautions and application instructions. When making repairs, getting a good color match can be difficult – we always recommend trialing the repair material in a small, inconspicuous area first and waiting 24 hours to ensure that the appearance, including color, is acceptable.

Is this product able to be used to seal seams when using actual bricks?

Yes, this is what I used it for. Just be cognizant that your brick will change color due to the film that this leaves behind.

I bought 2 different "editions" of this product, the original, and the new and improved version since my store had 2 bags of each. I started with the "new and Improved" version thinking I may be able to get away with only 2 bags for my entire project. Product went in very smoothly, fines were excellent to penetrate joints. Quickly realized that 2 bags was not going to be enough to complete my project so used "the original" to finish the job; a brick patio. After using a vibraplate and spraying everything down it was apparent that the 2 products were quite different. The new and improved definitely has some clay or cement added to it whereas the original didn't seem to. Next day when I planned on doing a final sweep after everything dried...yeowsers. The new and improved needed to be scrubbed off with a metal bristle cup brush and still left a film. The original acted as I would expect, swept it off no problem. That said, the new and improved does seem to have much better holding power and hasn't needed much reapplication due to settling whereas the original seems to be just sand and have had to reapply as needed. This is a good product for the right application but could be horrendous if you want to maintain the same paver finish and/or don't have a cup brush!

I been using this sand for a project consisting of sidewalks and patios. I'm using decorative pavers and this powerloc jointing sand works outstanding. I follow the directions but soak the cracks first. I let the area dry for a day or two before sweeping the sand over the areas I want sealed. I have some areas that have set for 16 months and no problems. Easy to work with and adds an appearance I cant get by using any other material. Purchased at Home depot.

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.

Overall, I was disappointed with this product. I got it, as it stated that is held in place better. That may be true, will have to see, but I bought 4 bags, and have at least a bag of material that was hardened, and worthless to me. I bought two, than two more, all the while trying to find bags that hadn't gotten wet and HARD. It was impossible. SO, I used 4 bags, for a 2-3 bag project. At $20 per bag, I feel like I got screwed. I'll take back the partial hard bag that I collected and try and get a credit.
