The QUIKRETE® Solutions to Concrete Repair

LAS VEGAS--(Business Wire)--Concrete repair is a high priority to many people according to nearly 15 million QUIKRETE® video views in 2018. Four of the top ten most viewed how-to videos on the QUIKRETE® website and YouTube channel last year involved repair with resurfacing concrete being the most popular. QUIKRETE® is addressing this trend by promoting its full line of repair products including the new QUIKRETE® Re-Cap Concrete Resurfacer and QUIKRETE® Advanced Polymer Sealants & Adhesives at the International Builders’ Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Feb. 19-22, 2019.

QUIKRETE® Re-Cap Concrete Resurfacer
Designed to repair and renew old, spalled concrete with a permanent wear resistant surface that can withstand foot, vehicle and other heavy traffic, the new QUIKRETE® Re-Cap Concrete Resurfacer has a bond to concrete that is four times stronger than the concrete itself. That means, a concrete substrate will fracture or crack before its bond with QUIKRETE® Re-Cap Concrete Resurfacer. In addition, QUIKRETE® Re-Cap Concrete Resurfacer has superior working time and flow characteristics than other resurfacers on the market. As a result, it’s easier and faster to transform a deteriorated concrete surface into a durable, lasting sidewalk, driveway or patio.

A proprietary blend of Portland cement, graded sand, polymer resins and other additives, QUIKRETE® Re-Cap Concrete Resurfacer is a proven shrinkage compensated repair material for making thin structural repairs to sound concrete in need of surface renewal. Applied with a squeegee, trowel or brush, one 40-pound bag will cover approximately 40 square-feet at 1/8 inch thick and up to 80 square feet as skim coat. With a walk-on time of eight hours and drive-on time of 24 hours, it can renew a surface for about 25 cents per square foot versus more between $3.50 and $5.50 per square foot to remove and pour a new slab.

QUIKRETE® Advanced Polymer Sealants & Adhesives
A solvent and isocyanate free line of high-performance, commercial-grade flexible repair and bonding materials that meet ASTM C920 standards. Designed to deliver or exceed the performance of traditional polyurethane or silicone sealants and adhesives, the single-component QUIKRETE® Advanced Polymer Adhesives are environmentally-friendly alternatives available in 10-ounce tubes.

  • Self-Leveling Sealant – permanently seals horizontal cracks and expansion joints in concrete with smooth, level, tack-free finish in 20 minutes.
