WHAT IS QUICK SET CONCRETE?
Although it may seem comparable to traditional concrete, quick set concrete is a unique product. Understanding its characteristics will help you determine if it is the right concrete for your project.
Composed of water, cement, sand, gravel and accelerating admixture, this concrete has a faster setting time (20 to 30 minutes) and reaches satisfactory resistance only 12 hours after installation.
It is not only simple and fast, it is also durable and strong, reaching 4000 psi after one month.
BENEFITS OF QUICK SET CONCRETE
Quick-set concrete offers several advantages that make it an attractive option for both homeowners and professionals:
- Ideal for urgent jobs
- Easy to use
- No need for many tools
- Speeds up work considerably
- Can be used in winter
- Perfect for small DIY jobs
- Good resistance
When to use quick set concrete?
This type of concrete is an ideal choice for projects requiring a quick turnaround time, such as sidewalk repairs, fence installation or anchoring various posts (mailboxes, street lights, etc.). Quick set concrete is also known for its strength, durability and resistance to freeze-thaw cycles, making it a popular choice for exterior applications.
How to use quick set concrete?
The use of quick set concrete is simple and straightforward. Here are the basic steps:
Prepare the surface: Before applying concrete, clean and prepare the surface by removing any debris or dirt.
Mix the concrete: Add water to the quick-setting concrete mix according to package instructions. Mix the concrete thoroughly until it has a smooth, lump-free consistency.
Apply the concrete: Pour the concrete onto the prepared surface and spread it evenly with a trowel. Be sure to work quickly, as the concrete will begin to set within 20 to 30 minutes.
Finish the surface: Smooth and level the concrete surface with a trowel or float. Allow the concrete to cure for the recommended time before walking or putting weight on it.
