- Wheelbarrow or mortar box
- Trowel and/or float
- Curing cover
- Brush for cleaning
- Hammer and chisel
- Safety glasses or goggles
Use a hammer and chisel to square the edges of the area to be patched. Then thoroughly clean the area of any loose concrete, using a stiff brush or broom.
Pour Pakmix® Sand Mix into a wheelbarrow and form a crater with a hoe. Pour clean water into the crater and mix to a smooth consistency. For improved bonding and strength, mix with Pakmix® Cement Fortifier instead of water.
Apply the Sand Mix to the problem area. Work the material down into the crevices and smooth out with a trowel. Take special care to place Sand Mix level with old concrete.
To make sure your repaired area cures properly, keep area moist with a fine mist from your garden hose, then cover with opaque plastic or burlap. Repeat this process 2-3 times a day for 3 days.
