Will adhere to wood but not to plastic. Paver sand needs a porous substrate.

Yes.

What is the volume of sand in each 40 lb. bucket (in cubic feet)?

Asked by Mark November 16, 2020
4
Answers

The Permasand bucket looks to be about 2/3 the size of a five-gallon paint bucket, so volume would be maybe 3 gallons, or if you want the answer in cubic feet, 3/7.48 = 0.4 cubic feet, more or less.

I see the descriptions mentioned 1/4" joints, but will this work on 1/16" joints?

Asked by Zac November 3, 2020
5
Answers

Not well. This stuff must stick to the edges of the pavers and form a semi hard flexible grout seam. If the joint is too narrow, you lose the flexibility as there is not enough glue holding the side walls together.

Can this be colored? I am looking for the darkest color like black or darkest gray. Thanks

Easy to apply, Take your time!
It was easy to apply but you do need to take your time. It took me some time to get used to but in the end it came out great! The first time I did it there were a few spots that didn't harden or washed out. So the next day I filled in the spots that washed out. I them watered it 4 different times about 10 min. I watched that on YouTube and it really worked. Here is the final result.

Total waste of time and money!
Followed the instructions to the letter- first off you’ll never get all the sand off the top with a broom or a blower bc it just gets moved around and if you up the speed on the blower the sand blows out of the joints defeating the entire purpose of the project. I’ve used perma sand before and had no problem but after putting this one down all I have is a sandy mess that will not harden. It also is supposed to be tan but this is clearly not tan it’s white. I’ll blow it all off the patio before it damages the pavers rather than wait any longer for zero results- JUNK!!

Please DO NOT BUY...
This product is crap. I followed the application instructions to the letter. Product left a tan haze on my brand new pavers. Had to acid wash several times to remove the haze. Unfortunately, it also faded the color of the pavers. Do yourself a favor, find a joint sealer that does not have concrete in it Find a NO HAZE sealer.

Color completely wrong!
We bought the tan color, it is gray sand no tan color at all. Thought it might be tan after it got wet it did not. We used this to fill around special rock with fossils and lichen on it. It totally ruined the project. We bought more for a different page for project we will be returning. We will definitely find a different product.

This product is ineffective against weeds and is not rain resistant
To begin let me say that the one good thing about this product is that it is very easy to apply. You simply dump the sand, and then sweep it into the cracks. However the effect the sand has on the weeds is not at all what I expected. I actually have two walkways on my property for which I bought 13 buckets of this sand and spent over $300. I did everything from misting the sand once I had finished applying the sand, to keeping it bone dry for the next 3 days. Nevertheless, it rained the next week, and the most of the sand washed out and splashed on the pavers. The sand that was left in the gaps had indents from the raindrops. Although the one walkway was washed out, the other one was fine regarding the rain. However, 3 weeks later, there are weeds growing through the sand. I was very disappointed with the results that were given by this product. This product is good for smaller areas, but if you are doing larger areas like I did, inquire at your local nursery. My local nursery was charging $65 for a full ton of sand as compared to the $300 I spent for a quarter ton.

Great PermaSand
This is a great product, second time in two years using for paver/brick projects, one a small patio area and this recent one being a driveway add on area. I have yet to have problems with any residue left on paver or bricks. The process is not something to rush, use a compactor over the top of pavers with a piece of plywood helps make the joints fill properly. Using a good push broom and plenty of water for the final is key to making end product pop.

The Sakrete PermaSand was perfect to complete our patio project. It helped to settle and grout the pavers in place. We swept it in between the pavers and then lightly misted with water from the hose. Very simple and user-friendly.

Garbage product
My last review of this horrible product was taken down for some reason. I am not a pro but I’ve installed 1000’s of square feet of pavers myself. Even following the directions to the letter left me with a huge mess. Still can’t get this white crap off my pavers. 6 months after I used the polycrapic sand, a heavy rain flooded the area I had put the poly crap on. The result ruined my pavers. The whole thing looks like the picture. This stuff should be removed from the market

Thank you for your review. But if you notice we require a minimum of 1/4" wide joint the full depth of the paver throughout the entire system. Your joints are too tight. Hot water, 160 degrees, will get the polymer off of your pavers. sakrete
