A: Portland cement, the base material out of which QUIKRETE® Crack Resistant Concrete Mix as well as other concretes is made, can degrade in temperatures as low as 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Because of this, products used for the pizza oven or immediately surrounding it, should be made of refractory cement, rather than Portland cement. Refractory cement is designed to be able to withstand exposure to high temperatures.
A: Each 50-pound bag of QUIKRETE® Crack Resistant Concrete Mix will yield approximately 0.375 cubic feet. The square foot coverage will depend on the thickness of the application. If you are using standard 2x4” lumber for your forms, each bag will cover an area of 1-1/4 square feet. Yields will vary with waste, uneven subgrade, etc.
A: Not a good idea. This is best for fence posts or places where there is surrounding ground and no mixing is needed. You need a fiber reinforced concrete mix.
A: QUIKRETE® Crack Resistant Concrete can be used in form-and-pour applications exceeding 2” thick in all dimensions.
A: A bag is 0.6 ft cubed. Calculate cubic ft of pour and divide by .6.
A: Each 50-pound bag of QUIKRETE® Crack Resistant Concrete Mix will yield approximately 0.375 cubic feet when mixed. For each 2" wide by 72" the depth will be 12" channel you will need 1 cubic foot of concrete, or 3 50-pound bags. Yields will vary with waste, uneven subgrade, etc.
