Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products but why must package be so heavy!?! We've been using sakrete products in a number of repair and building projects around the house and yard... they are great, but why are all gravel, sand, and cement products packaged in such heavy sizes? 30kg bags! Its the limit of human lifting capacity! I've actually chosen to pay a lot more for multiple small 25lb boxes of different mixes repeatedly just so we don't all injure our backs! Is this some macho nonsense... give us smaller bags, please!! We don't need another generation of masons, construction workers, and home handymen with injured backs. Please make smaller packages!

Why is this designed for applications with a thickness of 2 inches (5 cm) or more? I purchased the product to fill in a gap between my stamped concrete patio and stamped concrete steps out my back door. I have about a gap of 1" wide to fill

Asked by: Homejob
This product and most "concrete" has aggregate (filler/strengthener) which is 1/2in in size or larger mostly stone. That is whey the recommendation is to only use it if it will be 2in thick (min). You should be using a product with a sand based aggregate. Either "Sand-mix", mortar, parging or non-shrink grout.

Will this bond to rigid foam

Asked by: Joe123
concrete typically does not bond well to rigid foam. If you'd looking to get it to bond I wouldn't count on it. If you are hoping it won't bond, you're probably safe.

I am trying to overlay the driveway. Since I can add only 2-3cms on top of current concrete, and I did not find any suitable product, I plan to use the SAKRETE PSI 6000, plus SAKRETE Concrete Bonder and Fortifier. Is that ok?

Asked by: Jack
It is an interesting idea. I do think you might run into issues with the new concrete layer being too thin. This could mean it will dry out before it has a chance to properly cure. The aggregate stone within the concrete itself is also likely to be at least 2cm. With such a thin layer I think you're going to have a lot of issues with cracking and a real hard time getting a nice finish that will last very long - especially with freeze/thaw cycles. I'm afraid I don't have an alternative to suggest. Even asphalt is typically done with a 5cm "lift" depth.

Excess water reduces strength and durability and can cause cracking. |||| PROJECTS CONCRETE COUNTERTOPS |||| Surface Preparation: Support the formwork in order to carry the load of the freshly placed and hardened concrete. Prepare and secure all knockouts, falsework and reinforcing steel/wire mesh (if necessary), in order to ensure movement is restricted during pouring. Ensure all surfaces to be in contact with fresh concrete are free of debris, dust and other foreign substances that may alter the surface of the finished product. Some form and knockout materials (i.e. wood) may require a light coating of form release agent to facilitate proper demoulding. |||| Placing: After mixing the concrete, place and consolidate inside the countertop mold. Rod the fresh concrete and tap the formwork with a hammer to help eliminate entrapped air voids. Light mechanical vibration will provide the best results and may be required for forms containing large amounts of reinforcement or closely spaced knockouts. Avoid excess vibration, as it can cause bleeding or segregation. Level concrete by moving a straight edged board in a sawing motion, across the concrete, to remove any excess and to fill low areas. Allow freshly placed concrete to set before finishing. Set time will vary with temperature. Finishing: Precast Concrete Countertops: After concrete reaches initial set (can resist light finger pressure), finish the exposed surface as desired. Use a steel trowel, wood, magnesium or an aluminum float trowel for a smooth surface or the desired texture. |||| Finishing: Cast-in-Place Concrete Countertops: After concrete reaches initial set (can resist light finger pressure), finish the exposed surface as desired.

If the desired finish on the sides of the countertop are to match the finish of the top surface, the sides of the formwork should be removed and the sides of the countertop should also be finished at this time. Alternatively, if the finish on the sides of the countertop are not to match that of the formwork used, the form edges do not need to be removed at this time. NOTE: Finishing cementitious materials too early, or over-working the materials, can cause dusting, cracking, scaling and a weak surface. |||| CURING Curing means maintaining proper moisture and temperature. Concrete should be covered with a plastic sheet that is suspended over the concrete surface, for 24 hours. Placed concrete can be removed from formwork after 24 hours.

I am pouring a 4" slab over top of an existing slab that has a few large cracks and extending the slab out over an area (approx 2 ft sq) that does not have concrete. Do I need to seal the cracks first? How do I prepare the virgin area before pouring?

Asked by: BentleysPal
Sealing the cracks would help prevent water seepage into the base below the concrete slab. Note any movement of the existing slab below the new pour may/might ripple the crack to the new surface. Make sure to saw cut the fresh pour. Existing slab preparation make sure its thoroughly cleaned a free of anything that may prevent a good bond. Dampen the area and apply a coat of Sakrete Concrete Adhesive. Roll it on the damp surface and then pour your new fresh mix immediately. During the pour the existing slab should be kept damp. The virgin area dog out 2-4 inches deep, fill with 1/2 or 3/4” clear gravel And do your pour. Saw cut or use expansion foam where the existing slab meets the new. The cut should run along that joint knowing fully that the joint area might or will crack along the seam. Cure the material properly. SAKRETE PSI 6000 is a pre-blended, high strength, synthetic fibre reinforced, air-entrained concrete material. It is reinforced with alkali-resistant fibres to resist cracking and eliminate the need for wire mesh in many non-critical applications. It also contains an air- entraining admixture which will produce a concrete with superior freeze-thaw and salt-scaling durability. Use for new concrete construction projects, concrete overlays and repairs where a thickness of 5 cm (2”) or more is required. Open to foot traffic in approximately 24 hours. Exceeds ASTM C 387 strength requirements. FEATURES & BENEFITS • High strength (42 MPa/6000 psi) • Reinforced with alkali-resistant fibres to resist cracking • Air-entrained for cold weather durability • Excellent workability USES For new concrete construction projects, concrete overlays and concrete repairs. Use to construct footings, sidewalks, slabs, steps and patios. Use to set deck posts, fence posts and poles. PROCEDURES Mix and substrate temperatures should be maintained between 5 oC (40 oF) and 30 oC (86 oF) for at least 24 hours prior to and 48 hours after. For temperatures below 5 °C (40 °F) refer to SAKRETE Fast Set. Mixing: Empty contents of bag into mortar box, wheelbarrow or mechanical mixer. When mixing by hand, form a crater for adding water. Add approximately 2.2 L (2.25 qts) of clean water per 30 KG (66 lb) bag or enough to achieve a workable mix. Avoid a soupy mix. Excess water reduces strength and durability and can cause cracking. In cold weather, use warm water to accelerate the set. In hot weather, use cold water to slow the set. PROJECTS CONCRETE REPAIRS - Concrete overlays, concrete repairs etc. Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be repaired must be sound and clean. Remove all delaminated or unsound concrete by chipping with a hammer and chisel, or by using a stiff wire brush. Clean the area to be repaired with potable water, leaving the concrete saturated but free of standing water. Some very porous concretes may require several applications of water to ensure complete saturation. For best results, apply SAKRETE Concrete Adhesive to the existing substrate before pouring. Placing: After mixing the concrete, place and consolidate inside the repair area. Level concrete by moving a straight-edged board in a sawing motion across concrete, removing any excess and filling low areas. Allow freshly placed concrete to set or wait until the surface bleed water evapourates before finishing. Time will vary with weather conditions. Finishing: After bleed water evapourates, finish as desired. It is recommended, especially for air-entrained concrete, to use a wood, magnesium or aluminum fl oat trowel for a smooth surface. For a textured surface, use a broom or brush. If the repair overlay is placed over an existing concrete joint or break, it is important to tool a joint into the soft mix over the existing joint or break. Use a jointer tool to form a joint half the depth of the repair. NOTE: Finishing cementitious materials too early, or over-working the materials can cause dusting, cracking, scaling and a weak surface. Curing: See below. SETTING POSTS - Setting deck posts, fence posts, poles etc. Excavation: Dig hole with auger or shovel to required depth (hole should extend below the frost line). Allow 2 inches (5 cm) clearance on each side of post. A typical 4 inch (10 cm) x 4 inch (10 cm) post will require a 8 inch (20 cm) diameter. Placing: Position the post in hole and pour in mixed concrete. Align post using a level and check the vertical position. Cross-brace post for support while mix is wet. Allow to set for 24 hours then remove bracing and top with soil. Curing: See below. NEW CONSTRUCTION - Making concrete slabs, walks, etc. 1. Planning: Position layout stakes aligned with the project borders. Place corner stakes 12 inches (30 cm) outside the finished slab area. Join stakes together with string, the corners should overlap. String lines will show the planned layout and provide the height form boards are to be set at. 2. Excavating: The total depth of an excavation approx. 5 inches (13 cm) to 6 inches (15 cm) should be determined by allowing for 2 inches (5 cm) minimum of compacted crushed stone under 3 inches (8 cm) to 4 inches (10 cm) of concrete. Excavate 6 inches (15 cm) beyond string lines to allow room for forms. Spread crushed stone evenly throughout the excavation and compact well using a portable vibrator, roller or hand tamper. 3. Forming: Using straight 2 inches (5 cm) x 4 inches (10 cm) lumber, cut forms to length, then position so inside edges are below the string line. Drive pointed 2 inch (5 cm) x 4 inch (10 cm) stakes into ground at 3 ft (1 m) spacing to support forms. Screw together all forms, braces and corners from outside the work area. NOTE: Adjust forms before securing to direct rainwater run-off, with a slope approximately 1/8 inch (0.32 cm) per 1 ft (30 cm). 4. Curving: Create curves by attaching 1/8 inch (0.32 cm) hardboard to inside corners of forms. Drive support stakes behind the curved form. Place expansion joint board against adjoining surfaces to allow independent movement. Treat the insides of the forms with a commercial release-agent or vegetable oil prior to pouring. 5. Placing: After mixing the concrete, place and consolidate inside the forms, slightly overfilling and roughly levelling. Work a pointed trowel along inside edges of the forms removing trapped air pockets. Tap the forms with a hammer for smoother sides. NOTE: Mixing, placing and finishing should be timed to make sure concrete does not harden before finishing. 6. Leveling: Level concrete, moving a straight-edged board, overlapping the forms, in a sawing motion across concrete, removing any excess and filling low areas. Then float the concrete smooth using a wood, magnesium or aluminum float trowel. Stop floating when bleed water accumulates on surface. 7. Finishing: After bleed water evapourates, finish as desired. It is recommended, especially for air-entrained concrete, to use a wood, magnesium or aluminum float trowel for a smooth surface. For a textured surface, use a broom or brush. Use an edger tool to finish edges. NOTE: Finishing cementitious materials too early, or over-working the materials can cause dusting, cracking, scaling and a weak surface. 8. Jointing: Stress control joints are placed to control where slabs crack, along a pre-determined path. Use either a hand jointer while the mix is soft or saw cut 6 to 18 hours after hardening. The joint should be 1/5 of the full thickness of the slab and every 8 ft (2.4 m) in both directions. Adjust down for appearances (centering). 9. Curing: See below. CURING Curing means maintaining proper moisture and temperature. Allow newly placed material to set until surface is hard to the touch. SAKRETE PSI 6000 will set in approximately 6 hours. Keep material damp or cover with plastic to prevent evapouration of mix water for at least three (3) days. Protect from freezing for at least 24 hours. Placed concrete can be opened to foot traffic in 24 hours. POSTS: # of bags required. BUILDERS' TUBES: # of bags required for each 122 cm (48”) length.

Hello !! Please tell me haw many 30 kg bags i need for 1 m2 cement, and do I need to mix it with sand or something else ? Thank you. Alex

Asked by: Alex
Just add water. That’s all is required in the mixing of PSI 6000…..Mixing: Empty contents of bag into mortar box, wheelbarrow or mechanical mixer. When mixing by hand, form a crater for adding water. Add approximately 2.2 L (2.25 qts) of clean water per 30 KG (66 lb) bag or enough to achieve a workable mix. Avoid a soupy mix. Excess water reduces strength and durability and can cause cracking. In cold weather, use warm water to accelerate the set. In hot weather, use cold water to slow the set…… To answer your question in m2 I would need to know the depth….. lets assume you actually mean m3 you would need approx. 70 x 30 KG bags….. So to help you along estimating the quantity required for your project I have provided a few calculators….. The yield of 1 bag of PSI 6000 is: 1 Bag = ½ ft3 (0.014 m3)…. Calculate the # of 66 lb/30 KG bags required for your project using the calculator (Imperial and metric calculators are supplied)….. Slab Calculator (dimensions in meters): __ Length (m) x __ Width (m) x __ Depth (cm) = ___÷ 100 = ___ m3 ÷ 0.014 =___ 30 KG bags required….. Slab Calculator (dimensions in feet): __ Length (ft) x __ Width (ft) x __ Depth (in) =___ ÷ 12 = ___ ft3 x 2 = ___ 30 KG bags required….. Here is the products we site, to the right is a calculator, plug in your measurements….. http://www.kpmindustries.com/KingHomeImprovementProducts/product/sakrete-psi-6000/ ..... Hope this helps you.
