Concrete Floor Repair
Standard concrete floor repair methods may require digging out, chiseling, keying, priming and sealing but with FlexSet you simply clean up the concrete floor repair area to ensure that there are no loose pieces, mix your materials and apply. Your floor can be back to use in under an hour.
Even if you plan to cover over your concrete floor, it must be smooth and free from damage if you want your surface materials to look good. Concrete damage can cause bumps in your carpet, trouble interlocking hardwood floors and even collect moisture. For a simple and long-lasting concrete floor repair, use polyurethane concrete floor repair product FlexSet. For small cracks, use Concrete Welder in cartridges and for more extensive concrete repairs, use FlexSet.
To get started, here are the tools needed:
Concrete Welder Cartridge
A broom or blower
Scraper or straight-edge FlexSet Kit
A push broom or blower Drill
Egg-beater style mixer Trowel or Lute
First ensure that the concrete area is clean and dry. Sweep or blow out cracks so there is no loose debris. When using FlexSet concrete floor repair product, carefully pour contents of bottle “a” into the provided 5-gallon bucket then add special coated sand. Next, shake thoroughly and pour bottle “b” into sand mixture. Mix with a paddle-mixer, using a drill. (In colder months or when there is little time for the repair, catalyst can be supplied as an additive to speed the reaction.)
When mixture is completely wet, pour FlexSet onto concrete repair area and use a trowel or lute to smooth the material into cracks. When the damaged area becomes smooth, toss topping sand by hand over repaired area to create a uniform look and feel. Your concrete floor can be ready for use in about an hour. Smaller or hairline cracks in your concrete floor can be filled simply using Concrete Welder, available in a cartridge format. Once the crack is clean and free of moisture, open cartridge and squeeze Concrete Welder directly into the crack. Use a scraper or straight-edge to smooth the material out. Wipe up any excess material and allow to dry for 30 minutes. Now the crack is filled and your concrete floor is ready for use.
