New Again Rubber Paver Installation Guide

New Again Rubber Paver Installation Guide

 
 
NOTE: All New Again Rubber Paver products are to be installed over a solid substrate.
 
Split Pavers (7/8" thick) must always be adhered to the substrate.
 

 
Full Pavers (1-3/4" thick) may be adhered or loose-laid. If loose-laid, pavers must be installed against a perimeter border system. Click HERE for details of Loose Laid Installation.

Rectangular (Scored) Paver Tile

Square (Scored) Paver Tile

 
A.  INDOOR INSTALLATION
1. The material and adhesive must be climatized at room temperature for a minimum of 24 hours before starting installation.
 
2. Layout molded pavers or tiles before adhering to minimize cutting and waste.
 
3. Always begin installation with chalk lines that are perfectly square in the room. It
is best to begin laying tiles away from the walls.
 
4. After all above procedures are performed, begin application of recommended one-component polyurethane adhesive to the substrate using a 1/16"square notched trowel. Monitor the tooth size of the trowel blade frequently, and use a new blade with each new pail of adhesive.
 
5. Apply adhesive evenly at a rate of approximately 75 square feet per gallon over smooth concrete. Various substrates may effect this coverage rate. Do not allow adhesive to cure on your hands or the flooring. Wipe off excess adhesive with a rag dampened with mineral spirits! Cured adhesive is very difficult to remove from hands. The wearing of gloves when using the adhesive is strongly suggested.
 
6. Place the first tile into the wet adhesive making sure that the edges are precisely
placed along chalk lines and where they intersect. Press firmly on the flooring to
remove any curls or entrapped air.
 
B. LAYING TILES
 
1. Pavers: Interlock and shift whole pavers from left to right along chalk line #1 up to the wall on the opposite side of chalk line #2. The last paver will likely have to be cut to fit against the wall. See diagram below.
 

 
2. Tiles and Paver tiles: Place the first tile A into the wet adhesive making sure that the edges are precisely placed along the chalk lines and where they intersect. Press firmly on the tiles to remove any curls or entrapped air.
 
3. Continue this process with each row until you reach the wall across from chalk line #1.
 
4. Go back and fill in gaps between the two original chalk lines and the wall on those two sides.
 
5. Immediately roll the floor with a 100 Ib. roller to ensure proper transfer of adhesive. Overlap each pass of the roller by 50% of the previous pass to ensure that the floor is properly rolled. Roll the width first then the length. Re-roll after 30-45 minutes.
 
6. Keep foot traffic off the floor for a minimum of 24 hours. Foot traffic and rolling loads can cause permanent indentations in the uncured adhesive and cause tiles to shift.
 
7. Allow the adhesive to cure for a minimum of 12 hours before applying any sealer to the floor.
 
C. OUTDOOR INSTALLATION
 
1 .Glued down installation on concrete, asphalt and crushed stone. Base materials for New Again Pavers are fully cured concrete or asphalt. Both are ideal for load bearing areas with heavy traffic or
moving vehicles
 
2. Make sure to allow for a 1.5% slope or fall for moisture movement to drainage pit.
 
3. Bituminous concrete mixture requirements for asphalt top layer specifications are outlined below:
Sieve Size Opening Millimeters % Passing
3/8" .375 9.53 100
#4 .187 4.75 80
#8 .0937 2.36 54
#16 .0469 1.18 32
#30 .0234 0.60 18
#50 .0117 0.300 12
#100 .0059 0.150 9
#200 .0029 0.075 6
 
Note: A filter fabric is necessary for crushed stone bases. Tiles are adhered to the filter fabric. This tilt filter fabric system will allow moisture to penetrate e between surface joints and to evaporate in the base. Some bases will require a plastic perforated drain to remove possible moist re build-up.
 
4. Lay out molded pavers or tiles before adhering to minimize cutting and waste.
 
5. Always begin installation with chalk lines that are perfectly square. It is best to begin laying prod ct away from the walls.
 
6. After all above procedures have been performed, begin application of recommended one-component
polyurethane adhesive. Apply adhesive to the substrate using a 1/8" square notched trowel. Monitor the tooth size of the trowel blade frequently and use a new blade as needed to ensure the proper amount of adhesive is applied.
 
7. Apply adhesive evenly at a rate of 60 square feet per gallon over smooth concrete. Various
substrates may effect this coverage rate. Do not allow adhesive to cure on your hands or the flooring. Wipe off excess adhesive with a rag dampened with mineral spirits! Cured adhesive is very difficult to
remove from hands. The wearing of gloves when using the adhesive is strongly suggested.
 
8. Place the molded pavers or tiles into the wet adhesive making sure that the edges are precisely. placed along chalk lines where they intersect. Press firmly on the flooring to remove any curls or entrapped air.
 
9. LAYING TILES
 
a. Pavers: Interlock and shift whole pavers from left to right along chalk line #1 up to the perimeter border on the opposite side of chalk lint! #2. The last paver will likely have to be cut to fit against the perimeter border. See diagram.
 
b. Tiles & Paver tiles: Place the first tile A into the wet adhesive making sure that the edges are precisely placed along the chalk lines and where they intersect. Press firmly on the tiles to remove any curls or entrapped air.
 
10. Continue this process with each row until you reach the perimeter border across from chalk line #1.
 
1. Go back and fill in gaps between the two original chalk lines and the wall on those two sides.
 
12. Roll a 100 Ib roller over the floor within 45 minutes to ensure proper transfer of adhesive. Overlap each pass of the roller by 50% of the previous pass to ensure that the floor is properly rolled. Re-roll
after 30-45 minutes.
 
13. Keep foot traffic off the floor for a minimum of 24 hours. Foot traffic and rolling loads can cause permanent indentations in the uncured adhesive and cause tiles to shift.
 
D. LOOSE-LAID INSTALLATION: (FULL PAVERS ONLY)
 
1. BASE REQUIREMENTS
 
a. Base must contain sand/crushed stone with perimeter border system.
 
b. Pavers must be installed butting up against perimeter border system.
 
2. CRUSHED STONE SPECIFICATIONS
 
a. 95% standard proctor compaction (as per ASTM D1557) is critical.
 
b. Stone for the base must be crushed so it compacts to the above standard and should be a homogeneous mix of the following sizes:
Sieve Size % Passing by Weight
1" 90 to 100
5/8" 50 to 80
1/4" 30 to 50
#4 15 to 35
#8 10 to 30
#30 3 to 5
#200 0 to 3
 
c. Minimum depth of crushed stone base should be 4".
 
d. Base can be flat or sloped 2%.
 
3. PROCEDURE
 
a. Excavate soil approximately 12".
 
b. Replace soil with approximately 9" of compacted crushed stone and approximately 1" of damp leveling sand.
 
c. Install perimeter border system.
 
d. Lay pavers in desired pattern.
