FP-300 is a versatile and durable concrete repair product designed specifically for repairing and resurfacing driveways, patios, and other outdoor concrete surfaces. With its rapid-setting formula and exceptional strength, FP-300 is ideal for a variety of residential and commercial applications. In this how-to guide, we will walk you through the steps to properly use FP-300 to repair and restore your concrete driveways and patios for long-lasting results.

Step 1: Surface Preparation

Proper surface preparation is essential for the successful application and adhesion of FP-300. Follow these steps to prepare the concrete surface:

  • Remove any loose, deteriorated, or unsound concrete using a hammer and chisel, grinder, or other appropriate tools.
  • Clean the surface thoroughly, removing any dirt, dust, oil, grease, or other contaminants. Use a wire brush, pressure washer, or commercial cleaner as needed.
  • Ensure the surface is completely dry before proceeding with the application of FP-300.

Step 2: Mixing FP-300

FP-300 is a two-component product consisting of a liquid component (Part A) and a powder component (Part B). To mix FP-300, follow these steps:

  • Pour the liquid component (Part A) into a clean mixing container.
  • Gradually add the powder component (Part B) to the liquid, mixing continuously with a slow-speed drill and paddle mixer until a uniform, lump-free consistency is achieved.
  • Mix for approximately 3 minutes, making sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the container to incorporate all material.

Note: Mix only the amount of FP-300 that can be applied within its pot life, which is approximately 30 minutes at 75°F (24°C).

Step 3: Application

FP-300 can be applied using a trowel, squeegee, or screed. Choose the application tool that best suits your project and follow these steps:

  • Apply the mixed FP-300 to the prepared surface, spreading the material evenly and ensuring proper coverage.
  • Fill any cracks, holes, or voids in the concrete surface with the FP-300, smoothing the material with your application tool.
  • Level and smooth the surface as desired using your application tool. For a broom finish, use a broom to create the desired texture after the material has begun to set.

Step 4: Curing

After applying FP-300, it is essential to allow the material to cure properly. Follow these steps for optimal curing:

  • Protect the repaired area from direct sunlight, wind, and rain during the initial curing phase.
  • Allow the material to cure for at least 24 hours before subjecting it to foot traffic or other loads. For full load-bearing capacity, wait at least 3 days before applying any significant loads or stresses to the repaired area.
  • If desired, you can apply a curing compound or cover the surface with plastic sheeting to aid in moisture retention and promote uniform curing.

Step 5: Clean-Up and Finishing

  • Clean up any tools or equipment used during the application process with water before the material hardens.
  • Dispose of any leftover material according to local regulations.

Once the FP-300 has cured, you can apply a suitable paint, coating, or sealer to the repaired surface to match the surrounding area or to provide additional protection and durability. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the chosen paint, coating, or sealer to ensure optimal results.
