QUIKRETE® Countertop Mix is a product specially formulated for casting defect-free countertops. It contains a high range water reducing agent, which makes water optimization difficult for users without experience with this type of mixture. Slight variations in bag weights can influence the water demand. We recommend against adding flow enhancers to this mixture, as the combination effect with the existing water reducing agent will yield unpredictable results, which may include excessive air entrainment, compromised compressive strength, or extensive shrinkage cracking.

Answer

Please call or visit your local Home Depot store to discuss availability of 80 lb QUIKRETE® Countertop Mix – Tint Base (No. 1106-81). If QUIKRETE® Countertop Mix – Tint Base is not a regularly stocked item at your local Home Depot store, they should be able to special order it for you. Please note that QUIKRETE® Countertop Mix – Tint Base will not achieve a pure white appearance due to the aggregate in the product.

Answers

QUIKRETE® Commercial Grade Countertop Mix is not suitable for your application; instead, we recommend using QUIKRETE® Polymer Modified Structural Repair or QUIKRETE® Quick Setting Cement for this project. Both of these products can be sculpted while setting to match the existing contours of the wall, and can be applied without the need for forming.

This mix is for concrete finishers that are very experienced, are prepared to do a lot of work, and are making a countertop with square edges. Using this mix resulted in a rough finish that would have required lots of sanding and left huge voids from the bubbles in the edge. The quickrete sand topping mix with an add mix is much easier to work with and gives a way better finish, not to mention it is cheaper. Check out the photos below, the bad countertop was done with this mix and the good one was done with the sand topping mix. DON'T BUY THIS ONE!

The water mix ratio did not work for us. If one follows the directions sighted on the bag specifically, the mixture will come out too "soupy". In our case, we had to add more Quikrete to get a thicker consistency that we felt was needed. If using this product, would recommend adding water slowly in order to see how thick one wants the mixture to be before pouring into the form. After drying, finishing and application of a sealer, our project came out very nice. We used the Quikrete to make a table top for an ourdoor bar.

concrete countertop mix
a great product I've used dozens of time with great results. Any comments blaming the mix are laughable and are operator error.

BE CAREFUL! Bags are NOT labeled properly!
BE VERY CAREFUL PURCHASING THIS PRODUCT! I purchased 5 bags of this concrete countertop mix from Home Depot online. The order was available quickly and I went and picked it up at the Miamisburg, Ohio Home Depot. I had hired a contractor to install the countertops for me. I have two separate sections of countertops in my kitchen. The contractors mixed up and poured the first two bags and they looked great. The next two bags were lighter when the contractors mixed them up. They said that different dye lots can have different color intensities and that the two separate countertops would most likely dry out and be the same color. Unfortunately, when the countertops started drying it became obvious that one countertop was gray and the other was white. I had specifically ordered the gray mix, but had been given 2 bags of gray and 3 bags of white. All the bags were labeled identically, with the same numbers, and nothing to indicate what color of concrete was contained inside. It wasn't Home Depot's fault because there would have been no way for them to know the wrong colors were given to me. I called the QuikCrete company and talked to the local rep who confirmed and admitted that they do not label the bags appropriately, therefore he is providing me with more concrete to pour over top of mismatched counters, which I appreciate. However, because of the inconvenience of not having a kitchen to use for a week while waiting on the QuikCrete company to reach a decision on how to fix the problem, it has been an enormous, stressful hassle (not to mention that I have to pay the contractors to come out again). I am sure once the contractors pour the next layer of concrete and finish out the countertops, it will look great (very modern, clean and with a bit of an industrial edge), and I'm convinced it will work out but it's been a major headache thus far. Also note that the concrete does have some rocks in it and once you pour the concrete it will need to be sanded out then sealed to get a nice smooth finish. Also, because it is concrete, expect some cracks to show up as the concrete cures.
