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.

We live on a corner lot and need to make a large post to protect our fence from big trucks that take the corner too close. Can this be used for posts or is it only good for patios, patches, etc? Thank you!

Answer: 
Oh yeah... this stuff sets surprisingly fast, so you have to move quick. Very quick.
There must be a chemical epoxy as it is warm to the touch as it hardens. This stuff would be perfect to use for posts without question...you just have to worry about making sure you are all set up, before you pour the stuff. Again,...move quick.

Answer: 
It's considered an 'anchoring cement'. I used it for a concrete 'repair', meaning I troweled it in and it set up nicely. I would say this would work for that usage, but I'm no expert on building concrete posts. It's entirely possible a less expensive product might do that job just as well for you. I'd run that one by someone at Home Depot.

Yes Rapid Set Cement All can be used for all cement projects. Although for setting posts, you may want to use Rapid Set Concrete Mix. It is less expensive and is perfect for post setting.

Chuckers; I understand your frustration with people not knowing the difference between weight and volume, or not realizing that ounces are used in both, as in 8 fluid ounces equaling 1 Cup or 16 oz. equaling 1 pound. The 55 lb bag will yield 0.5 cu. ft. of mixed product, my experience is that this is pretty close to the dry volume as well. I'll measure out a bag when I pick some up tomorrow. 0.5 cu.Ft is Read More

No. Dry volume and weight are 2 different things.
55 pounds is the total weight of the bag of product, which is printed on the bag and on this site so I would not be asking that. I am looking for the total DRY VOLUME of this 55 pound bag either in ounces or in quarts.
So, as an example, a 5 pound bag of white flower has a dry volume of 160 ounces or 20 cups or 5 quarts. On the other hand a 5 Read More

So, as an example, a 5 pound bag of white flower has a dry volume of 160 ounces or 20 cups or 5 quarts. On the other hand a 5 pound bag of wheat flour has a totally different dry volume per 5 pounds of weight because it is more course and does not compact as much as white flour, so the dry volume is greater than that of white flour.

55 lb. Cement All Multi-Purpose Construction Material is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product - Important Things You Should Know 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 key points to know BEFORE you get started. 1: If it is Warm or Hot outside, keep the bags of cement 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 wheel barrow that has been sitting in the sun for hours. Better yet use a 5 gallon Home Depot Bucket and a paddle mixer. Do you see a theme here? The temperature of EVERYTHING will have a dramatic effect on the set time. One of the other 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. If you placing Cement All over the top of existing concrete, thoroughly saturate the existing concrete with water, then 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. Rapid Set makes come incredible products and this is no different. As with most things, understanding a few key details you may have not known makes all the difference in the world. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked great but it is fast So our first purchase ended up being a bad batch. It never set after 24 hours. The rapid set sales rep came out and verified the bad bags. Once we moved past the bad batch...the cement all worked great and super fast, and we even used the additives to slow it down. So make sure all the prep is done right...my countertops look great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very hard to work with This product sets incredibly fast , uses more water than the bag claims , and is difficult to float . I used it to resurface and level parts of a basement floor and wished i used self leveling cement instead . I wasted more than one bag of this expensive stuff due to set time and one unusual case of it ceasing up after i poured it. I don't recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing cement this product is amazing....pro desk associate recommended it....used it 1st time on a cinder block chimney with cracks and mortar joints missing...mixed small amounts at a time since it sets up very quickly, put it on with a moistened sponge and did entire chimney...looks fantastic.....looks new....easy to apply...set up real fast....greatest product and at a real good price....anyone looking for concrete repair...this is the product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You better work FAST !! I just purchased a $20. bag of this mix.. It was about 78 deg. outside when I mixed it. After about 4 minutes in my cement mixer it turned to stone !! , I am now using an air chisel trying to get it out of my mixer...I think this was way to fast to set up.. Bag said 15 min. set time. It was well mixed and ready to pour when this happened..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from seems tough I used this product for a transitional slope between two uneven sidewalk blocks.its feels like it has plasticity like a sticky oatmeal.sets up fast due to the grout,and the bag states its around 3000psi.dries tan color.i would recommend if your repair needs something in between mortar and precision grout,price wise and strength wise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Rapid Set Cement All is a quality product that produces amazing results. Although it is expensive, it is worth it! Use it to perform concrete repairs (0-4 inches thick) on sidewalks, walls, and SMALL resurfacing/skim coating projects. The only downside is the working time - you have to be extremely fast when working with Cement All, as you only have 10-15 mins to mix and apply this product. Mix for no more than 2-3 mins, use a pool trowel to apply, and then immediately finish with a yellow tile sponge applying light-medium pressure to get a lightly sanded smooth finish. I work for a General Contractor and have used this product on high traffic areas, such as in schools; ready to walk on within an hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, takes some getting used to. Highly recommend using the admixtures made for rapidset products which extend working time and increase flowability. Sets very fast at warmer temperarures like one would experience in Kingman AZ. I mix 1 qt. water to 1 gallon dry mix. For resurfacing concrete before flooring I slowly add flow control admix to warm water, stirring constantly to avoid clumping, use 1/3 to 1/2 pkg flow control per qt of water. Allow water to cool before mixing if possible, then mix cement-all with treated water. This mix flows like melted butter, sets like iron and bonds well to clean pre-moistened surface. Adjust mix for thick patches since using this thin of a mix can cause shrinkage. Try a few small batches until you get used to the product. Hope this helps.
