Gator Xtreme Edge
GATOR XTREME EDGE INSTALLATION
Always refer to the latest Gator XTreme Edge Technical Data Sheet (TDS) at AllianceGator.com before installing Gator XTreme Edge. Concrete pavers, slabs, Natural and Wet cast stones should be installed according to ICPI Tech Spec 2 and ICPI Tech Spec 10, utilizing industry established best practices for the base, setting bed, and drainage of a hardscape project.
STEP 1 REMOVING BEDDING MATERIAL
Remove all excess bedding sand / chip stones at the edge of the hardscape project. Gator XTreme Edge will rest on a solid base material. For a Gator Base installation, cut the Gator Base flush with the edge of the hardscape project. Remove the bedding material and excavate an area approximately 4″ (10 cm) wide by 1” (25 mm) deep in the native soils along the edge.
STEP 2 MIXING GATOR XTREME EDGE
Mix 1/2 US gallon (1.9 liters) of water with one bag 50 lb (22.7 kg) of Gator XTreme Edge until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.
Conversion of measurement units
1/2 US gallon = 2 quarts = 64 fl.oz = 1.9 liters
STEP 3 TROWEL GATOR XTREME EDGE 30° ANGLE
Create a triangular shaped wedge of Gator XTreme Edge against the side of the pavers, slabs, natural or wet cast stones. With the help of a trowel spread approximately 4″ (10 cm) of Gator XTreme Edge mixture at a 30° angle over the base material or native soil in a Gator Base application. Fill any void space created from the removal of the bedding layer material. Ensure that the Gator XTreme Edge covers at least 1″ (25 mm) of the vertical side of the paver or 1/2 the height of the hardscaping material being used.
STEP 4 COMPACTION OF THE PAVED SURFACE
Final compaction of the paved surface with polymeric sand should take place while the Gator XTreme Edge is still curing and when applying Nitro sand, a 90 minutes wait will be required.
