Water Based Non-Harmful Binder – Easihold is a water based, non-harmful, easy to use binder that leaves stones permeable, with a protective sheen. Easihold is recommend to hold in place clean stones, 1/8 inch to 5/8 inch in diameter. Easihold is not suited to vehicle traffic or regular / heavy duty traffic.
Easy to Use DIY Product – Easihold is perfect for use on new or existing stones. Dirt and silt deposits ought to be washed off prior to application – and ensure the weather conditions are good for the 48 hours post application.
3 Easy Application Methods – Easihold is applied by 3 different application techniques – Pour On, Spray On or Mix In.
Easihold Pour On
Easihold can be poured from a watering can. We recommend using a maximum of 1 litre per 12 sq. ft. (around 3 fl. oz. per sq. ft.), ensuring your stones are evenly coated. Ensure you use a watering can with a steady flow that is dispersing the Easihold liquid evenly across the stones. This method is quite straightforward, without the use of specialist equipment and ensures good penetration into the stones. The one main consideration with this method, and all methods of application of Easihold is over saturation.
Easihold Spray On
Easihold can be spray applied using a standard airless sprayer. For the spray application, you can increase the coverage area of 1 litre of Easihold – covering 30 sq. ft. per litre. Spraying Easihold limits penetration into the base layer of the stones. Great for achieving a larger coverage but this method won’t provide as robust a surface finish. We would recommend this application method for decorative use only.
We recommend to use 2 applications of Easihold when applying by the Pour On or Spray On method for the strongest finish.
Easihold Hand Mix
Sometimes pouring and spraying can risk splashing your paving, or surrounding areas. In these circumstances you can mix Easihold with your stones until they’re evenly coated – usually 0.8 litres is enough to coat a standard 55lbs bag of stones. The mixing method leaves the strongest finish – guaranteeing the stones are evenly coated throughout. You can typically only use this method of application with new stones – mixing with old, dirty stones could be difficult.

How to Guidance!

Not all stones are suitable for Easihold application. Stones between 1/8 inch to 1/2 inch in diameter work the best, but even stones up to 5/8 inch can work well if angular and clean.

|What size stone works best?||We would recommend between 1/8 inch to 1/2 inch diameter for the best bond. But you can use stones up to 5/8 inch and still achieve good results. Even larger stones can be bonded if clean and angular, but we wouldn’t recommend for any foot traffic.|
