I placed the simple prep floor patch on 10 hours ago and it's still not dry. It's a very thin coat and should be dry by now.

any suggestions? It's the pre mix type so it did not require any mixing.

I hope you've got a lot of time on your hands, mine is taking forever to dry too. I even followed the directions to apply several thin coats and it still doesn't help. My patch with 3 thin applications has taken over a week so far and the 3rd layer is not dry.

SimplePrep 1 Qt. Pre-Mixed Floor Patch is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff With Lots of Uses I've used this floor patch for many things, from filling in cracks on concrete floors to feathering between rooms to create a gradual slope to a lower floor surface, to covering over nail heads in sub-floors to prevent nail pops. It's reasonably priced, easy to work with, dries fast, and even seems to stay well in the container without drying out between uses. Definitely a go-to product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I am not sure why others had a problem with this product. We purchased it to fill in some spaces where we had to remove pieces of an old vinyl floor before we laid a new laminate over it. It was easy to apply with a wide putty knife. Smoothed out well. It was pretty dry to the touch after a couple of hours but we waited overnight based on some of the other comments. I'm not sure we needed to. This worked perfect for our need.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from tough stuff but hard to work with I used this to fill in some plywood imperfections before laying down some vinyl tile. I found it hard to make it smooth after patching (very gritty). Some areas where I didn't smooth it out properly, I ended up paying the price after it dried. The instructions state that you do not sand it. I found out why when I actually had to break out my grinder to smooth it out. It will tear sandpaper to shreds. To its credit, I think it would be better for patching concrete because it is hard as a rock when it dries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a Charm I am not sure if some of you got a bad batch or what but I found no fault with this product. I used it on Vinyl as well as wood to even out the floor before I laid down tile. It was very easy to mix and I just took a little out at a time and transferred it to plastic paint cup to keep it from drying out. Keep a spray bottle of warm water near you and just lightly spray whatever you plan on patching and spread it out evenly why it's wet. If it starts to ball up spray your putty knife or whatever it is your are using with water and go lightly over it again. I actually used a Rubbermaid Baker's Spatula and it worked like a charm..lol This is not a finishing product it's not going to be smooth to the touch like your cement floor. REMEMBER, How it looks spread on wet is exactly how it will look dry. Use water to help spread it if you have too, just don't pour it on. As far as dry time, make sure it's not to thick. Do layers for thicker patches. Which means, let the first layer dry before adding another layer. I did one layer one night and the next night added a second layer. You do this until it's level. I used a small heater to keep the bathroom warm so that it would dry easier as well. This was my first time using a floor patch so hope this helps some of you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use We installed plywood subflooring before we laid new vinyl tiles. I used this to patch gaps between the plywood sheets and cover up the holes left by drilling in the screws too far. It went on easy-peasy, dried well and the self-stick vinyl tiles stuck to it no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected! I don't know what other people are talking about, but I recently used it to patch some holes in a concrete slab and it's was very easy to use with a simple spackling tool. It is a bit gritty, but it's not meant for your actual floor surface or your countertop - it is more for sub floor repair. If your surface is dirty, the product may not smooth out as easy and part of it may become unusable after it's mixed with some dust and sand, so you may want to clean the spot where you apply it with a damp cloth first. Dry time was excellent - some smaller patches dried up in a couple of hours, while the bigger ones took few more hours to dry. The final result is a very hard-looking material after it dries and it blended with the concrete I had in the slab so I could hardly see it without knowing exactly where it was. One time I spend couple of minutes just trying to find the patch I did a day ago :). Although I must say that it's a bit rough to touch - not quite as smooth as a real concrete.. But most important part - there is no need to mix anything - just open a can and it's ready to go. I only bought a small can and I still have more than half of it left after fixing a whole bunch of holes in the concrete slab - it seems to go a long way. The product has a bit of a smell to it, but not too bad and reminded me of a citrus drink smell of sort. It's also a good idea to keep it closed right after you get enough of it to cover the patching area, this way it will last you longer for future projects. Overall I would use this product in future and I would recommend it to others. I am actually thinking maybe I can try it to repair some cracks in my concrete driveway, although I am not sure how it will hold up to the outdoor conditions..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two days... rubbery soft. Wasting my work time. Needed to patch a hole in my tile where the refrigerator wheel sits. Didn't care what it looked like, just need to fill it, like now. Laid in 1/4" coat like directed. Waited four hours. Looked dry.... so added second coat. Next day.... total rubber. Put a lamp on it to warm it for a day. Come back, total rubber. Two days the whole families been squeezing around the refridgerator in the middle of the kitchen because this useless floor patch is more suitable for tires then tile. Waste of your time, product does not state that it dries rubbery. Even my super thin 1/16" skim coats on other areas never dried solid. Have used other brands and have patched floors with solid enamel tile like results that cure fast. This product in no way what-so- ever compares to the real stuff. Home Depot should discontinue.
