perkEpave is extremely porous and flexible and simple to install. This video shows a crew of 6 men installing 1,000 square feet of perkEpave in 2 hours.
Place 3"- 4" of clean #57 stone and compact to an 1.5" below finish grade. Next, install 1.5" forms (standard thickness) or landscaping edging on top of the stone.
Periodically mist the internals of the paddle mixer and the wheelbarrow with bio-diesel or form release to keep the perkEpave from sticking to the equipment.
Mix per application mix ratio. until all the stone and rubber particales are coated with the binder. NOTE: Never introduce water into the mix and be consistent with the mix ratio and time in the mixer.
Our stanadard mix of stone, rubber and binder will produce 16 sq ft (1.5" thick) in approximately 3 minutes.
perkEpave falls out like wet stones; does not flow like concrete and is easy to finish. NOTE: Water reacts with the binder, installation is not to be done when raining.
It is extremely important to coat all mating surfaces with binder to assure perkEpave does not separate from the mating surface and potentially cause a trip hazard.
Screeding perkEpave is necessary to achieve a flat surface and is the first phase of finishing the perkEpave.
Coating the floats with form release is the key to a smooth finish. The form release keeps the binder from sticking to the floats; apply often.
For a professional looking finish product; perkepave needs to be pressed in place at mating surfaces. Dressing the edges along forms on a bevel should be done prior to form removal.
perkEpave binder will harden and become very difficult to remove fron the tools and equipment if not addressed as soon as possible when finished for the day. Scraping and brushing off the particles of stone and rubber and washing the tools in soapy water must be the task at the end of the shift.
. NOTE: The appearance of the finish will change over time, to a consistent flat finish as it is affected by the weather.
