what does "cold weather applications" referring to? does that mean it holds up better in freezing...

Asked by Adam April 18, 2021
1
Answer

Cold weather application refers to placement of concrete at ambient temperatures below the stated minimum of 50 degrees F. QUIKRET® 5000 Concrete Mix can be placed at temperatures below 50F by adapting cold-weather precautions, which include, but are not limited to, the following: store the raw materials in a warm temperature before use, use warm (not hot) water to mix, and ensure that the mortar is protected from freezing for at least 48 hours using plastic sheeting, insulated blankets, or other means. If these preventive measures cannot be taken, it would be best to wait for warmer weather.

I believe it would work but only when you use the adhesive to bond the concrete together. I have not had much success with bonding concrete together but I was told that the concrete I was repairing was to old and I needed to replace entire slab

How many bags for a post footing 42 inches by 12 inches

Asked by Eddie March 30, 2021

Answer

Presuming a 4” nominal post, the footer would be 12” by 12” and 42” long. At these dimensions, you will need 3.5 cubic feet of concrete. Each 50-pound bag of QUIRKETE® Fast-Setting Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.375 cubic feet, so you will need 10 50-pound bags. Yields will vary with waste, uneven subgrade, etc.

Can this be used to create/repair a dam in my pond? Or would the quick set be more applicable?

Answers

QUIKRETE® 5000 Concrete Mix is suitable for all concrete applications requiring a normal-setting product which will achieve 1500 psi after 24 hours and 5000 psi once cured. QUIKRETE® 5000 Concrete Mix will set in 4-6 hours after placement; if a faster setting time is desired, a Fast Setting product should be used.

Can i use it for a shower?

Asked by Chris December 21, 2020
1
Answer

QUIKRETE® Sand/Topping Mix (No.1103), in conjunction with QUIKRETE® Concrete Acrylic Fortifier (No.8610) replacing half of the required water content, is the combination of products recommended for a shower pan or a mortar bed for shower base or bathtub installation. ANSI 108.1 provides application and material requirements for shower pans and bathtubs. It is critical that the subfloor / structure underneath be rigid. Bathtubs require secure and adequate support because of the combined weight of the tub, person, and water. Please consult and follow local building /plumbing code requirements.

great for concrete coffee table project
I used 4.25 50 lb bags to fill a melamine form and made a 'modern' style concrete table with rebar 6" x 6" wire. I let it set while I was away for 5 days in the form, then removed the form and let it cure for an additional 5 days before polishing with pads up to 800 grit and applied a wet look sealer. Very pleased with the finished product. It's very heavy and sturdy - will probably be around as long as stone henge! The aggregate in the mix added character to the finished product.

Did the job. Poured three bags in a 30" deep hole for a post to secure a retractable garden hose assembly. Followed with a garden hose to water the mixture and left it sit over night. Next day, solid as a rock. Looks great and is sturdy.

Worked great. Original instructions seemed a bit off for Water/Mix ration, but once you get that down, goes pretty quickly. Utilized a Quikrete Walkway mold as well to do a concrete "paver" patio and turned out great.

This worked out well for my driveway. I replaced a 7x9 foot section. Thought I calculated right and added a few extra bags to be safe, but ended up with a dozen extra. Home Depot took the extras back. Directions recommended 3/4 gallon of water to mix with each bag, but that was too dry. Learned that the hard way. That part did not finish smooth.
