Slump of PATCHCRETE is at 2 1/2" or 6 (cm) by its workability always visualized as a concrete with slump at least 5" or 13 (cm).
The simplicity of PATCHCRETE texturing without any surface curing saves on work hours while giving high quality and durability.
Picture of textured PATCHCRETE taken after 5 years showing well-preserved, sharp edges in a trafficked area requiring deicing treatments every winter.
(At left) PATCHCRETE was used to repair the Vilnius airport loading area. The project was completed in 4 hours and exceeded the customer's expectations.
PATCHCRETE's surface hardness is recognized by ACI 300 for Category D for distribution centers and truck stops.
__________ 1. Measure the area to be repaired, “A” in square feet.
___________2. Standard PATCHCRETE consumption with layer thickness at 1” is 6.35 LB per 1 SF.
___________3. Consumption of PATCHCRETE is: “A” x 6.35 = “W”, LB.
___________4. If a thinner overlay is required, for instance ½”, multiply “W” x ½ to get the required weight of PATCHCRETE.
___________5. If a thicker overlay is required, for instance 2 ½”, then multiply “W” x 2 ½ to get required weight of PATCHCRETE
___________6. Always follow the PATCHCRETE APPLICATION instructions to get the best performance for many years ahead.
Determining the most economical method of PATCHCRETE application will depend on how large that area is. The right choice will save money, construction time and labor cost. Therefore, unload PATCHCRETE:
PATCHCRETE examples of texture, stamping, casting as construction joints, and draining traps after 5 years of deicing by salt every winter:

Pigment can be added to PATCHCRETE, with the same high resistance to dusting wear, delamination and cornering wear.
Many projects are required to be completed overnight. PATCHCRETE offers fast setting times (4 hours) and a high density, durable and thin overlay with a variety of finishes. Fields of application include driveways, roads and pavements, basements, loading docks, septic tanks and courtyards.
