Can I use this mix to pour in a mold?I have a staked stone mold that in the thinnest spot is about .75 inches to about 1 inch.Looking for a fast set

Would like to take out of mold in less time. So I can do more castings. Also what to stain how long before I can do this? What product would you recommend?
Asked by: needhelp5862
I think it would work fine. For the stain, why not consider mixing in the color before pouring. No knowledge on staining.

how many 2" thick 1 ft squares per 60lb bag

Asked by: Lazy
1-1/3 bags should make 2, see chart for 4" thick and divide by 2. It might by more reasonable to by 2" pavers (my opinion).

If I don't finish my job in 15 minutes will the concrete harden in my bucket?

If it does become hard, how do I clean it out of the bucket to make my next batch?
Asked by: Kate
You need to clean your bucket and more importantly, your tools ASAP. If the concrete hardens in your bucket, it is not coming out easily, if at all. SIDE NOTE: The "15 minutes" set time is not incredibly accurate. There are multiple things which can affect the amount of time you get and it is VERY important to understand these before using the product. I highly suggest reading my review.

60 lb. Concrete Mix is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fast Setting Product, BUT You Can Slow it Down. This is worth Reading! The following is... 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 Concrete Mix in the shade or better yet inside an AC conditioned space. If the dry Concrete Mix 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 Concrete Mix 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. 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!

I patched my walkway with this and within a few hours we could walk on it. Be sure to have you steps ready when mixing it since this does start to setup fairly quickly. Easy to smooth out once poured in place. The chart on the web site for this product helped me figure out how much I needed to buy and only had 1/2 a bag left over.

It releases up to 36 percent less carbon and lasts TWICE as long. These two factors make it SO much better for our planet. It sets up much faster and stronger. I will never buy another brand. LOVE IT!! This product made the green list for Home Depot, no other cement or concrete product has accomplished this honor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Used this after the weather had gotten colder to fill a hard to reach void in an old stone foundation. Worked easier than expected using cold water and set in about 20 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fast setting and perfect! This was perfect for completing a job in the basement and set up rapidly enough to be able to tile within the same day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong and Does The Job I used this product for the first time to set a mailbox post that lost a battle with the town plow. I usually use another brand, but when I saw this available I grabbed it. It seems to have a higher psi than just about any other quick setting product sold at The Home Depot. Plus, it is truly quick setting, it takes about 15 minutes to dry to the touch. Finally, it's the only product that I purchased that was hand delivered by a sales rep. that was perfectly willing to answer any questions I had. Even though I didn't have any questions, I was quite impressed by that. The only draw back is the price; it's 4x the cost of just about every other 60lb bag I can find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fast! a rep from home depot was very nice & patience with us to show us how to use concrete mix. He mixed in a Home Depot's 5 gallon bucket and poured it in a wood square for post under my deck. It was very hot like 90's. Wow, very smooth & easy to mix for a short time. It was fine powder & off white color. Very fast to dry to become solid "rock" within 30 minutes. Whoa. It must be done asap to mix, to pour in ur project or it will be dry fast!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sets FAST! We used this concrete for part of our cord wood chicken coop. It is quite smooth and easy to mix. However, we decided after our first application in mortaring to use it as a second layer of the floor instead. It goes on smoothly and is very malleable when initially applied. The problem is that the drying time is so fast that it would set before we could finish. It was hardening way before we applied it all, even when we left it somewhat soupy. When we used the rest on the floor, we kept applying water in order to smooth it out. It turned out beautifully on the floor.
