Bethany, Conn.—Laticrete has announced the launch of Paver Link, a professionally engineered joint sand for use on practically all hardscape projects.
The technology of Paver Link makes installation easy by simply brushing the product into the joints between pavers. Ready for use right out of the package, no misting with water or tamping down is necessary. Once installed, it cures in just 12 hours, and will not stain pavers, create dust, or wash out like most of today’s polymeric sands.
According to Jonathon Scott, Laticrete’s product manager, “People should think about Paver Link as grout for outdoor pavers. For any paving configuration, it not only links pavers together but, in doing so, it also eliminates most any weed growth. Being permeable, it allows rainwater and oxygen to permeate the ground right beneath the installation, while not polluting soil or groundwater. It also resists damage from mechanical cleaners.”
Once installed for exterior applications, Paver Link is long lasting and will complement any new patio, pathway, plaza or driveway. “When it comes to commercial interior paving projects such as atriums and rustic food courts,” explained Scott, “Paver Link is an ideal to be specified, as well.”
For optimal results, paver joints should be a minimum of ¼-inches wide and at least 1-inch deep. Paver Link is best to be used with paving blocks, flagstones and larger, multi-shaped pavers. It is not recommended for use with joints less than ¼” wide.
