SURFACE REPAIRS FOR SPALLED, FLAKING, & PITTED CONCRETE FLOORS & YARDS

Technique and materials for repairing indoor and outdoor concrete slabs from wear and tear, weathering, rain and frost damage, erosion by forklifts / hgvs / trolleys and other wheeled vehicles, shallow impact damage from skips / containers / crates / pallets / bins and other vessels. 

Typical surface damage to concrete floor or yard

METHOD:

  • Review the repair material's technical data sheet and follow instructions for preparation and priming
  • Excavate the area if the material can only be used at a minimum depth
  • Remove all loose, unsound concrete and contamination ensuring that the concrete substrate is strong and open textured.
  • If required for the selected repair material, saturate the concrete with water and after soaking remove any free surface water.
  • Whilst the concrete is still damp mix the smoothing compound and scrub it into the surface with a stiff broom or apply the recommended primer product.
  • Pour the remainder of the compound onto the primed area spread and allow to level. To assist the compound to flow and release air it can be worked with a spiked roller.
  • Allow to harden before trafficking.
