What is the proper tool or tools to use with this product. I'm thinking of using this to refinish a concrete step. The standing push squeegee seems overkill.

Answer: 
While I used a long handled squeegee for large areas, I found an windshield squeegee (Model # 972050, Store SKU # 1000018529), available at HD for $3.88, to be convenient for smaller jobs or tight areas.

Answer: 
A squeege is good if you're trying to go to a feather edge. Otherwise a board works fine. Another tool that I think is essential is a paddle mixer for your electric drill.

Answer: 
Although the Sakrete Flo-Coat TDS gives the coverage as 18 sq ft at ¼” depth and 72 sq ft at 1/16” depth, that is for a 40-lb bag. The coverage for this 20-lb pail would be HALF of that--or 9 sq ft at ¼” depth and 36 sq ft at 1/16". In fact, the actual label directions on the 20-lb pail I purchased give the coverage for 1 pail as 9 sq ft at ¼” depth.

Answer: 
The Flo-Coat is only offered in 40 lb quantities and will cover 18 ft2 at ¼” depth or 72 ft2 at 1/16” depth. So the coverage for 20 lbs would be half of the coverage given.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FLo-Coat Resurfacer A bit difficult to mix, try adding to water in a second container. It covered the deteriorated surface but is hard to coat vertical as edge of steps. It will seem dry but do not add extra water as working to coat it will float to the surface and become too wet and puddle. But I like the results! October 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mix in wheelbarrow Instructions on Flo-coat resurfacer directs that it be mixed in a 5 gallon bucket with a paddle mixer hooked to drill. Product is easier to use and spread if you mix it in a wheelbarrow with a hoe,and than pour it out and level it. October 11, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Expensive and not a solution for rough concrete I may have bought the wrong product so please consider that when reading this review. The objective was to improve the finish on a slab that I had poured - the surface was a bit rough. Based on the product info I bought three tubs to treat 100 square feet. Product mixed easily (using a drill and stirrer) and applied ok. It looked good at first but after a couple of days it seemed to soak into the concrete and has only made a minor difference to the overall finish. I could add another couple of buckets on the top but I do not want to spend more on the project. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product delivers as advertised Flo-Coat is the only product I was able to find that does not just put a skim coat on old concrete, but can be placed up to 1/2" thick. Thus if you need to raise a low spot in a driveway to correct drainage Flow-Coat does the job. Any questions, check Sackrete's website and check the video. Twenty pound buckets are not full thus allowing for adding water and mixing without using some other container such as a wheel barrow. Mixed with a 1/2" drill motor and grout mixing attachment. October 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sets up fast and to a great smooth surface Product worked well was easy to use . Mixing was easy and straight forward. September 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product. End result is very good, but be careful with how much water to add. The instructions on the pail said add 5 quarts which I did and it was double the amount of water required. Fortunately I ordered 2 pails of flocoat so I was able to mix it properly, liquid enough to spread evenly but not watery or soupy. End result is great. July 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Addictive great product I tried the 20LB Flo-Coat resurfacer on my cracked backyard concrete surface over the weekend. The treated surface was about 4'x4' and I thought the 20LB bucket was enough for the job?! The mixing, applying was so easy and straightforward and I wonder what kind of special compound Sakrete put in there to make it to flow so smoothly. After I was half way through the job then I realized that I need to get another bucket to get it done....I later checked it on Sakrete website using their calculator/estimator and found out I do need about 2 buckets to treat the specified area. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of pre-cleaning the surface in order to get the best result. December 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Slow set - easy to use. This product worked well for me. I've used other bag resurfacers, but always had trouble getting them to spread well. This stuff went down smooth and easy. I suspect the difference is that this is not a quick set product. The longer cure time makes it easier to work with, but you're not going to be laying tile on this stuff in 4 hours! Perhaps the steps I used will be of help to others. First, I checked the area to be patched with a straight edge - high spots were chiseled away. I cleaned the area with a shop vac, then wet it thoroughly. I covered the wet area with plastic and let it soak for about 4 hours. Just before mixing the product, I removed the plastic and blotted up the standing water with an old bath towel. I measured out about 60 oz of water, put a paddle mixer in my electric drill, and went to it. The 60 oz is slightly over the recommended amount - when I use this product again I'll use the recommended 56 oz. It didn't take long to get things smooth. Be sure to go around the sides of the tub as well as across the bottom to avoid any unmixed spots - it's tough to remix after you dump it onto the floor. For spreading, I used a 3 ft length of scrap wood rather than a squeege (didn't have a long squeege). A squeege would probably work better, particularly if you were trying for a feather edge in some areas. One mistake I made was trying to distribute the product by pouring selectively from the bucket. The material tends to settle in the bucket pretty quickly, and the first part of the pour ends up watery. Better is to just dump it one pile and then spread it - mix as you go, all the same. This would give a more uniform spread. Anyway, I'll use this stuff in the future. I'll leave the quick set stuff for the pros who don't want to come back the next day to finish the job.
