Repair Thin Concrete with Kwik-Bond
Repairing thin concrete damage in an industrial commercial facility can be a quick and easy process with the right tools and materials. This guide will show you how to repair thin concrete damage using Kwik-Bond, a fast-curing, high-strength concrete repair product.
Step 1: Clean the Surface
- Before starting the repair, it’s important to clean the surface of any dirt, debris, or loose concrete. Use a pressure washer or a wire brush to remove any surface contaminants. If there are any oils or grease present, clean the surface with a degreaser and allow it to dry completely.
Step 2: Prepare the Repair Area
- Next, use a chisel and hammer to remove any loose concrete and make a clean, smooth surface for the repair. Be sure to remove any damaged concrete to a depth of at least 1 inch and make the repair area larger than the damage itself. This will ensure a good bond between the new and old concrete.
Step 3: Mix the Kwik-Bond
- In a mixing container, add the required amount of water to the Kwik-Bond powder as per the instructions on the package. Mix thoroughly until you have a smooth, uniform consistency.
Step 4: Apply Kwik-Bond
- Using a trowel, apply the mixed Kwik-Bond to the repair area, filling in any cracks or voids. Spread the material evenly, making sure to fill the repair area completely.
Step 5: Smooth the Surface
- Using a trowel or a float, smooth the surface of the Kwik-Bond to match the surrounding concrete. Allow the material to cure for the recommended time as per the instructions on the package.
Step 6: Finish the Surface
- Once the Kwik-Bond has cured, use a fine-grit sandpaper to lightly sand the surface of the repair. This will help to blend the repair with the surrounding concrete and create a smooth, seamless finish.
With these simple steps, you can quickly and easily repair thin concrete damage in an industrial commercial facility using Kwik-Bond. This fast-curing, high-strength concrete repair product will provide a durable and long-lasting repair for your concrete surfaces.
