Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

This product's specially manufactured aggregate material and higher volume of cement yields a mix that gives you 67% more coverage than regular concrete mix. Maximizer Concrete Mix is a pre-blended, ready to use mixture of concrete sand, expanded shale and clay aggregates and Portland cement packaged in a convenient bag. Maximizer Concrete Mix can be used anywhere commercial ready mixed concrete is used, and it can also be used where smaller quantities are needed or hard to reach areas that prevent a ready mix truck from delivering.

  • One 80 lb. bag of maximizer yields 1 cu. ft. while an 80 lb. bag of regular concrete yields 0.6 cu. ft.
  • May be used in standard concrete mix applications
  • 5,500 psi in this product compared to 3,500 psi of regular concrete
  • Outstanding strength of 5500 psi, making it the strongest all-purpose concrete mix

Answer: 
It depend on the depth (thickness). multiply 100 sq ft by inches/12. Example:
For 2 inches thick: 100 sq ft X 2/12" = 16.6 cubic ft. = 17 bags
for 3 inches thick: 100 sq ft X 3/12" = 25 cubic ft = 25 bags
for 4 inches thick: 100 sq ft X 4/12" = 33.3 cubic ft = 34 bags

Answer: 
most pours are 4" think, that is 1/3 of a foot, so divide square feet by 3 and you get cubic feet - A bag of Maximizer is one cubic foot - 100/3=33.3 = 34 bags of Maximizer (or 56 bags of regular 80# mix)

Answer: 
If the specs are correct and one 80lb bag covers 1 cubic foot of space, then it would take you 8.3 bags to cover 100 sq/ft to a depth of 1 inch. Hope this helps.

we are looking to pour light weight concrete on top of a plywood sub floor in a condo repair. The thickness of the concrete which we removed was approx. 1 1/2 inches. What is the recommended thickness when using Maximizer? What would you recommend as a additive for extra strength if needed? What would you recommend to put down on the plywood substrait?

Answer: 
Minimum 2” thick. This is not a light weigh product either. Sounds like a Self Leveler may work better for your application, or Rapid Set - Cement All, as it can go down to a feather edge.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Way too much aggregate! As previous reviewer stated, should have just bought pea gravel. Putting in a small pad for a generator to save money on the installation. This was the hardest premix to work that I have ever used. You cannot finish the surface. There is so much aggregate that its surface texture is very similar to a pea gravel pad. Had the generator installation company done a job of this quality, I would have had them start over! Will NEVER use this product again. August 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk. Might as well buy a bag of pea gravel. Great for post holes. Absolute garbage for a slab. Read some bad reviews but figured it was worth a shot anyway. Poured 20 bags. Came time to finish it and was all rocks couldn't even attempt to float it. Had to dig back out the first inch before it set up. Go back to Home Depot and buy enough quickrete to pour back on top and finish the job. August 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great Used in a location hard to get to by an inground swimming pool August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by the best conrete if you need any job done with concrete.. this is the product to use.. easy to use and looks great when is done. p.s. give it a shot!! May 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Will not ever use this product again I have used this product in the past and I have had good luck with it, but the past few times we used it there was an excessive amount of agitate in it (too many rocks). Their quality control has gone downhill. Usually with pre mixed bags of any brand you have a few bad bags with too much agitate, but it usually isn't a problem when you combine it with a few good mixture bags. The last few times we have gotten pallets of bad mixtures to the point it cost me jobs. I spent more money on the product itself for better quality, and then had to double my cost on re pouring new concrete. As a professional small job contractor I do not recommend this product anymore. I am not that happy with quick Crete, but I have less problems with that product. February 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super Product I love this stuff. This a fabulous product, and I would recommend it to anyone who mixes concrete by hand or mixer. Go get it Maximizer. March 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by be carefull have used this product in the pass, this time I got it from two different home depot and the bags were day and night ,first group was good but the second was full of mostly rocks and had to stop the project just to go to the store and get some cement to add to the mixture to finish the project , would not recommend this product because it is hard to know what you are going to get. had I not used this product for myself in the pass I would have read the reviews on inconsistence in the product but that's my fault, I purchased 30 bags this time but never again December 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wow ... not good! Hard to finish! I used this for a 7' X 8' slab in the back yard for a shed. I've poured about a dozen slabs over the years and wanted to take advantage of the lower density of the product. All was good until I tried to finish it. It has fine gravel and my finishing tools kept dragging the gravel to the surface. I thought that maybe I used too much water, but followed the directions. It was about 70 degrees max outside, so I thought maybe I was trying to finish it too early. I waited, but no luck. It seemed like there wasn't enough cement to cover the rock. Maybe it was too wet and the water was bleeding to the surface and displacing the cement. I may have weaken the concrete with multiple finishing operations, but i wasn't worried since it's not load bearing and is rated at 5,000 psi. I am more worried about it powdering, crazing, or cracking. Finish is not good. only time will tell. February 14, 2016
