Product description

Sika Setting Sand is moisture, curing jointing material that gives perfect pointing for all types of block paving. Faster than traditional methods, Sika Setting Sand can be simply poured or swept into joints before being saturated with water.

How do you use setting sand?

Before you application, ensure that the paving to be jointed is dry and free from loose dirt, debris, etc. The joint width should be a minimum of 2mm and a maximum of 5mm wide with a minimum depth of 25mm. It should be applied to the entire joint depth. It is recommended to carry out a small trial before applying to the entire area.

When applying, it’s important to re-mix the dry material before use and discard any small lumps. Use in small, manageable amounts and avoid spreading over large areas. Once applied, sweep the material into the joints to make sure each joint is filled.

If it’s due to rain prior to setting, protect the surface to ensure a smooth finish. Finally, sweep any excess material before it sets and ensure joints are all fully saturated with water. Rinse any excess material from the surface.

You can walk over the area after activation, but ideally, it should be left to dry first. The setting takes 1-2 days depending on the temperature.

Can you use a jointing compound on block paving?

Yes, Sika Setting Sand is suitable to use on all paving types. It can be poured or swept into joints before being saturated with water to give the perfect pointing for all types of block paving.

Surface Preparation

Ensure that the paving to be jointed is dry and free from loose dirt, oil, debris and grease etc. it is essential the joint widths are a minimum of 2 mm wide with a minimum depth of 25 mm. Do not pre- fill joints with sand. Sika Setting Sand should be applied to the entire joint depth.

Application

It is recommended to carry out a small trial in an inconspicuous area or on off-cuts of paving prior to application.

Due to the nature of Sika Setting Sand, some settling of contents will occur. It is important to re-mix the dry material before use. Discard any small lumps and do not add extra sand to the dry material. Use in small, manageable amounts and avoid spreading over a large area.

Sweep the material into the joints, making sure each joint is completely filled.

If rain is expected prior to hardening, the surface must be protected to ensure a smooth finish. Sweep up any excess material immediately as it can be difficult to remove once set. Thoroughly soak the joints with a hose pipe set to spray or a watering can fitted with a rose. Do not use a pressure washer.

Ensure joints are all fully saturated. Rinse excess material from the surface.

The finished surface is safe to walk upon immediately after activation, but ideally should be left to dry.

Drying will normally take 1 – 2 days although the time required for full cure is dependent upon temperature. At lower temperatures, the cure time will be slower. It will take up to 28 days to achieve full cure.

Clean tools immediately after use with warm soapy water.
