Best Products to Use in Joints of Pavers & Flagstones

Techniseal Next Gel Polymeric Sand


No more weeds and ants on any of your paver installations!
Techniseal HP2 Polymeric Sand
is a high-performance solution for all of your projects, irradicating weed and insect problems.

Techniseal®HP NextGel™ Jointing sand is a state-of-the-art mix of graded sand (ASTM-C144) and binder that flows smoothly down joints for a fast and effective installation of pavers or slabs with false or wide joints. It is also recommended for surfaces exposed to heavy traffic, and for high-humidity areas. Easy to use, NextGel™ Jointing sand starts to set only a few minutes after being activated with water, and quickly becomes resistant to water erosion (rain, splashes, sprinklers, etc.). NextGel™ Jointing sand offers great resistance to weed growth, insect invasion, and erosion.

Techniseal®HP NextGel™ Jointing sand has been manufactured with a revolutionary technology called NextGel™. NextGel™ radically transforms and improves the properties and behavior of jointing sand, resulting in the first ever true “no dust†”, “no haze” and “no waste” jointing sand for a fast, clean and profitable installation.

Minimum joint width: 1/16”
Maximum joint width: 4”
Minimum joint depth: 1.5”*
