Product Overview

Rapid Set Cement All is a high quality, durable, easy-to-use, multi-purpose repair material that can be used for almost any type of concrete work, including concrete repair, grouting, anchoring, casting, underlayment, and more. It is ideal when rapid strength gain, high durability, and low shrinkage are desired. Cement All sets in 15 minutes and is ready to drive or build on in one hour. Durable in wet environments, it can be applied from featheredge to 4in.es thick. Cement All is a blend of high performance Rapid Set cement with fine graded sand. Cement All offers superior resistance to chemical attack. It is non-metallic and no chlorides are added. Cement All allows the repair area to be painted, coated, or sealed soon after application. Under dry conditions, water-based coatings such as latex paint can be applied after the product is hardened, which usually takes one to four hours. Solvent-based and impermeable coatings such as oil based paint and epoxy can be applied in 16 hours.

Can this be used to create a sloped floor for a shower?

This question is from 25 lb. Cement All Multi-Purpose Construction Material

Currently there is a concrete slab. I am looking for something to create the slope to the drain that can also be feathered at the edges. It will then be covered with a kerdi membrane. (Also, I am wondering if it can be applied in layers so that I can work slowly.) Thanks!

Answer: 
You can't work slowly with this. It sets up way too fast. I wouldn't recommend using this for the slope. Vinyl Patch Repair may be a better product for that.

Answer: 
This material can be applied in layers to a feather edge finish. If you are looking to increase the working time you can purchase our Rapid Set Set-Control packets to add into the mix. Each pouch will give you 15 extra minutes of working time. Thank You!

25 lb. Cement All Multi-Purpose Construction Material is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fast Setting Product, BUT You Can Slow it Down. This is worth Reading! The following i... Excellent Fast Setting Product, BUT You Can Slow it Down. This is worth Reading! The following is basic info you need to know if you are not familiar with how fast Rapid Set Products can set. If you are using this on a warm or hot day, there are a few key points to know BEFORE you get started. 1: If it is Warm or Hot outside, keep the bags of Cement All in the shade or better yet inside an AC conditioned space. If the dry Cement All is above 80 degrees than you are already asking for a short set time, the cooler you can get the mix (No, do not go to the point of freezing temps) the closer you will be to the directions set time. 2: Do not use warm water out of a hose. Either let it run so it turns cool, or better yet, use Ice Water (with the ice cubes melted 100%). 3: Do not use a wheelbarrow that has been sitting in the sun for hours, or even better yet, use a 5 gallon Home Depot Bucket and a paddle mixer. DON'T mix the entire bag or box, start with 1/4 of it if this is your first time! 4: If you followed the above, you can also add Rapid Set Set Control packets to the mix which will increase your set time Do you see a theme here? The temperature of EVERYTHING will have a dramatic effect on the set time. One of the reviews stated even with the Set Control product added, it only gave him a couple of extra minutes. That was probably true, BUT when you don't properly prepare / ensure everything is at "cool-temperature", there is only so much one little packet can do. Not to mention taking the above steps will help save you money as you will need to buy less of these packets. 5: The addition of the Concrete Pharmacy Flow Control product basically makes the Cement ALL FLOW. It is really amazing how you can add a little pack (which looks like sugar but is not) to your bucket, turn on your paddle mixer, and 20 seconds later the entire product has totally transformed into more of fluid like substance. Besides those benefits, the really important one is the fact you will use less water. Water weakens the final PSI of the product a lot (obviously you need water to start the chemical process, but using the minimum needed will increase the strength of the product. If you placing Cement All over the top of existing concrete, thoroughly saturate the existing concrete with water, let the surface water be absorbed by the concrete, repeat, THEN you can apply the Cement All. If it is a warm or hot day, I would keep the area in the shade one way or another Before and After applying the Cement All as I have personally experienced the product lifting off and cracking when I did not do this. It appears when it is applied to a hot concrete surface, it may harden up too fast and not achieve a strong bond. Also, you MUST saturate the existing concrete with water, if you don't, then you are asking for problems. DONT FORGET THIS STEP. The water which is absorbed by the existing concrete will help create a suction between it and the Cement ALL. Rapid Set makes some incredible products and this is no different. As with most things, understanding a few key details makes all the difference in the world. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I'm a fix-it-yourself homeowner who is not a professional contractor and this is the best cement product I've ever used, hands down. I've used it for exterior repair on the foundation and interior repair on cement floors and cinder block walls. Easy to work with and dries hard as a rock. A few tips: this stuff starts to harden up within 20 minutes so it's best to mix it up in small batches. Use a measuring cup or similar device to get the proportions right and it's foolproof. When first mixed it's soupy - let it sit for a few minutes until it starts to firm up. Then start work. Keep your trowel clean and wet. A water misting bottle is a useful accessory - clean out an old Windex bottle and use that. Easy clean up with soap and warm water. The 25-pound container will last for a while but you can bet this is what I'm buying if I need more material.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever! I was told this product was great for making stepping stones. I've been making stepping stones for over 10 years using vinyl patch repair. So I bought a 25 pound box. I used all of 8 cups and was more than mad.Don't ever use this for stepping stones. By the time you get the top smoothed out and the letters pressed in, what is in your bucket has already set up and isn't usable. I was told it had a feel like clay. It does right before it gets hard. This may work on the stepping stones where you lay decorations in the bottom and then pour the product on top. It doesn't work for the kind I make. Don't waste your money! I'm sticking with vinyl patch repair. I know it works!
