Polymeric sand is a substance that is used to fill paver joints, or the spaces between pavers, tiles, and natural stone. It's also known as paver sand, jointing sand, or hardscape sand. The sand is a mixture of specified additive particles with jointing sand, which is made up of fine grains. When this chemical comes into contact with water, it becomes an ultra-strong bonding agent that tightly bonds concrete elements together. Polymeric sand is ideal to use because the joints it produces are long-lasting and uniform. This avoids the chance of weed development and ant infestation, which could compromise the paver project's overall aesthetics and longevity.
