We often see that pavers at footpath, compounds and even at home surrounding that many pavers are either broken or uneven. It often causes some disturbance to many passengers or ourselves when we walk over or near to it. However, We often neglect it because this issue might not under us to solve or we don’t know what to do. Hence, we are providing you with the solution to a few problems that usually occur during the lifespan of pavers. These solutions can be used at your paver filled compounds.

Here are the problems and solutions for the paver issues.

  1. Uneven size and height of pavers

We often find uneven pavers at public places which is not so comfortable to walk by. However, the reason behind this problem in the base itself. The base may not be filled properly or the mixer had an uneven thickness. If the site has clay soil, then it will hold a lot of water than soil.

The existence of more water in the soil will make way to displace the original position of pavers. During the winter time when the ground freeze, the soil will expand more and push the paver up. However, when the soil comes back to normal position, The pavers may stay at the same high since they cannot move down without a good amount of force from the other side.

Solution: Unfortunately, we cannot fix it easily. Hence, we will have to redo the paver installation by clearing the stone dust under the paver.

  1. Stone Dust issue causing uneven Paver Height

It often observes that most paver production unit use stone dust for the base preparation as a setting bed. Stone dust is a screening by-product that used for having some gravel pits. However, the main problem with stone dust is that it breaks into fine dust form when its installed under the paver. This dust holds a lot of water and can form a clay soil when it freezes.

Solution: The ideal way to make composite to have even compaction is by using ¾ processed gravel that has various size particles. However, there is no way to repair the existing uneven paver other than starting over the whole process.

  1. The Paver and Fixed edges are slowing disappears

You would have noticed that many pavers don’t have the correct edge and those are on the edge of breaking since no setting bed is available under the pavers.

Solution: A filter fabric usage under the base and bringing up the sides of project excavator will prevent this issue. Unlike the uneven paver heights, this issue can be fixed by the particular area without completely starting over. Filter fabric can be fixed for each paver and new base can be added for paver reinstallment.

  1. Paver Land is Settled

The main reason for a settled paver land is lack of compaction. This phenomena is often seen on a nearby site where house or pools are constructed. The backfilled soil are mostly not contacted when they filled. It is common that the ground under the paver dug up and not filled properly.

Solution: We are do following for fixing this issue.

  • Pull up the paver
  • Add more gravel base
  • Make sure that it compacted in intervals
  • When the base is properly filled, level with bedding sand
  • Now reinstall the paver.

  1. The edge pavers are about to fall off

The main reason for this issues is that no edge restraints are installed to keep the pattern together.

Solution: There are 2 type of edge restraints are available in the market for paver installation. The most used type in indian land is PVC edging restraints that used during paver installation. It spiked into the base of the gravel where paver is installed. For fixing this settled issue, paver need to take out, more sand and base need to be filled with proper compaction and at the end an edge restraint need to be installed in order to rectify paver settle issue.

  1. Water is puddling on the paver.

There could be 2 reason for this issue.

  • The base may not be built at a proper pitch and may have build at a slightly low spot.
  • The base was not compacted well and the land settled over the time.

Solution: The only way to fix this issue is to pull up the paver area that settled and add more base and grave to compact the land before reinstalling the pavers.

  1. Uneven pavers and tipping.

The reason for this issue is that pavers are not installed with joint sand and that resulted into a setting bed.

Solution: When pavers are completely laid, the concrete sand or polymeric sand is poured into all joints. Next to that vibratory plate compactor should run over the pavers. More sand is required to top off the joints and project is compacted 2 or 3 times.

So the next time you find an unorganized pavers in a public space, at home surrounding or at factories, you might able to know the reason behind it and can even figure out the solution to it.

we are pioneered in paver manufacturing by gaining the status of the most trusted name in the paver producing industry. Our range of products include

Since we know a bit about the JR company, we can jump into the paver production process.

Paver Production Process

Paver production starts by segregating the pre-requisites and this process requires below resources.

  • 2 Vibrating table
  • Concrete Miller
  • Color Mixer
  • Baby chips
  • Crusher dust sand
  • Cement
  • Chemical
  • Colour Oxides
  • Power around 15 HP
  • Paver Moulds
  • Plywood Sheets

JR Rubber moulds is even capable of providing automatic paver plants which don’t need a manual intervention for paver production. However, we will be concentrating here on different stages of paver creation for a deep insight.

  1. Paver mixer and Color Mixer making

The first phase is to create the mixer for paver using the concrete miller. The mixer is created by mixing the cement with crusher dust sand, baby chips and water. The normal ratio of this mixer is Cement – 50 KG, crusher – 100 KG, Baby chips -84 KG and water as per requirement. All these ingredients should be mixed well to form the flowing mixer with the thick consistency.

On the other hand, color mixing machine can use for mixing the color using color oxides along with chemicals. Chemicals are used for water reduction in pavers in order to provide the ultimate strength. Whereas color oxides are used for coloring the paver along with drying out the paver for long durability. Here are few details about the chemical we are using.

  SMF-Sulphonated Melamine Formaldehyde

SMF powder and Color Oxides are used in the paver production. SMF is a well-known superplasticizer used in paver production around the world. It is a high-end water reducer in order to provide the maximum durability to pavers. SMF powder widely used for all types in all types of grouts, mortars, coating and as a component of the concrete admixtures and emulsions. The usage ratio is 2-4 gram per 1 kg.

PCE- Poly Carboxylated Either

PCE is also a plasticizer that performs a quick setting of mixer and water reduction. PCE is in liquid form with a quantity distributed drums. The usage ratio is 3-5 gram per 1 kg.

 Color Oxides

Color oxides are used for used for coloring the tiles as per request and to make tile attractive. Color oxides also attached with the chemical which works as the plasticizer. The quantity of color requires only a little amount, that is 2 gram per 100 kg. There are re different types of oxides such as

1, Red Oxide
2, Black Oxide
3, Yellow Oxide
4, White Oxide
5, Grey Oxide

 Acrylic Resin

Color oxides are mainly used for providing the necessary colors to the tiles, it will make the paving designs more attractive. There is also chemicals added in it will which make the paver harder for improving the lifespan.

  1. Paver making

As the paver mixer prepared in concrete miller and color mixer and chemicals prepared parallelly, major paver production action can perform now. The process starts with layering the paver mould by color mix and place it on first vibrator table. The forward vibrating table will lead the paver mould to next table where the mould will be filled with paver mixer created in concrete miller. Again the paver will push to the vibrating table where the paver will fill its quantity in equal proportion.  After completing the table round, paver will be placed above the plywood sheet for one day to cool and harden the paver. The next day paver will take out and spread under the sun to soak the full water.

The above-mentioned process is the standard procedure used for paver production. However, JR Rubber Moulds went a step ahead and owning 2 types of plant that reduce the manual interventions in paver productions. These paver production plants are mentioned below.

 Mini Paver Plant
