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 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.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can This Be Used For Posts?

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!
Asked by: Baybie
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 just have to worry about making sure you are all set up, before you pour the stuff. Again,...move quick.

I used this for molds to create flower pots. So far, so good but why is it so warm? I did this in an air conditioned space and the temperature in the room is about 72 degrees. When I touch the outside of the plastic molds, they are very warm. Not so warm I can't touch them but it's still noticeable. Should I refrain from using plastic molds with this cement and switch to another type of cement or concrete mix?
Asked by: Sandy
You can use any molds when casting with this material. Once you pour the material into the mold you will want to water cure this product for 45 minutes in order to keep the temperature down.

Dry Volume per 55lb. bag?

Can someone at RapidSet please tell me what the total dry volume is (in ounces or quarts) for one 55lb bag of Cement All? Thanks
Asked by: Chuckers
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 approximately 15 quarts (US), or 14.2 liters, or 478.75 fl. oz.

55 lb. Cement All Multi-Purpose Construction Material is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 45.

Testing the product on a small area, I mixed a batch right from the bag with enough to cap a step and liked the results. Trying it on a 12' x 12' patio presented a real challenge. Mixing 1 bag to the consistency of pancake batter and started pouring a trail over a moistened clean concrete slab. It wasn't flowing out at all, so I began misting the Cement All with a hose to keep it from drying while I was working it with an 18" Squeegee. The additional water helped get it under control, but it was setting faster than I wanted. The work was done at night and the weather was cool. I didn't think I would need retarder or additives, but it was a good thing I had purchased several bags of Concrete Pharmacy Set Control and Concrete Pharmacy Flow Control, so I used then in the next batch. The ratio I used was 1 bag of Cement All, 1 bag of Flow control, 2 bags of Set Control. As far as I'm concerned, Set and Flow products are mandatory for achieving a controlled finish on a floor using Cement All and a successful combination for my project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wet cure! You MUST use the extender additive wet substrate surface, if pouring over old concrete, you must scarify old concrete surface with grinder. Mix in 5 gal bucket using ice cold water...trowel finish...then WET CURE or it will crack!

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 Great Product! First of all, just want to let you know that I am a rookie with cements, but after a few search on the net I've decided to try with this product to level my basement floor. Trust me! This product is amazing! The name say it all... I could walk on it after 15 minutes. Like others have said, you have to mix with either their Flow or Set or both products to achieve the result which you would like to have. Yes, I would strongly recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute GARBAGE! This product has ZERO work time even for small projects. Unless it is pourable from the bucket it is entirely too thick to trowel smooth before it begins to set. I have avoided Rapid Set products before and should have avoided this one too! Worst yet!

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.

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 countertops look great.
