Making A Deep Repair

Pakmix® Sand Mix is a specially formulated blend of Portland cement and sand, ideal for use where a thickness of 1/2″ to 2″ is required. It is perfect for repairing damaged walkways and slabs.

  • Wheelbarrow or mortar box
  • Trowel and/or float
  • Hoe
  • Curing cover
  • Brush for cleaning
  • Hammer and chisel
  • Safety glasses or goggles

Step #1:

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.

Step #2:

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.

Step #3:

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.

Step #4:

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.
