Hi Graham, if I understand you correctly you are considering using AQUAPHALT (6.0) MEDIUM for your repair to concrete - .....
Providing you follow the product (AQUAPHALT (6.0) MEDIUM) uses and directions how to use for your project....and your project meets the requirements of the product.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: TDS at ....https://www.kpmindustries.com/KingHomeImprovementProducts/wp-content/uploads/sites/12/2018/10/Aquaphalt-6.0-Medium-TDS-ENG-REV.0004.pdf.....Aquaphalt™ is a revolutionary, high performance, flexible,
reactive, cold-mix, asphalt repair product for use in repairing
asphalt and concrete road surfaces. Aquaphalt™ reacts with
plain water to provide a permanent repair solution. All sizes of
Aquaphalt™ are free of solvents or volatile organic compounds
FEATURES & BENEFITS
• Permanent Solution: Aquaphalt™ is stronger than typical
hot-mix asphalt pavements and unlike other conventional
cold-patch asphalt products, which never deliver a truly
• Cost Effective: Aquaphalt™ saves time and money by
eliminating costly repeat repairs
• Environmentally Sustainable: Aquaphalt™ contains
no toxic solvents or VOCs, making it friendlier to the
This product can be used on highways (asphalt or concrete),
runways/taxiways/aprons, bridge decks, manhole repairs,
potholes, utility cuts, parking lots, driveways, tennis courts and
Remove all loose material from area to be repaired. Place
Aquaphalt™ in the patch and level with a rake or trowel. Allow
0.5” (1.3 cm) to 1.0” (2.5 cm) of additional height for compaction.
Saturate with water and compact. If the depth of the pothole is
greater than 2.0” (5.1 cm) to 3.0” (7.6 cm), it is advisable to
fill the hole in two layers. In colder weather, a freezing point
suppression additive may be added to the water prior to
saturation (i.e. road brine, salt water, etc.).
Aggregates: All of the aggregate materials are a crushed
granite and are from an approved Virginia DOT source. All of
the aggregate materials are from a non-polishing source and
have the following properties: ASTM C-127, 128; Specific
Gravity: 3.0% Max.
Binder: Reactive Binder is a further development of the “RapsAsphalt” technology. “Raps-Asphalt” is a plant-based binder with
bitumen (a naturally occurring Organic by-product of organic
materials), which represents a total weight of approximately
5-8% of the finished product. This binder contains natural
rapeseed oil which improves stability. The binder of Aquaphalt™
is a proprietary liquid that similarly contains renewable natural
raw materials. CURING
Aquaphalt™ hardens quickly for immediate use. After water is
applied, Aquaphalt™ will start to cure in 15 minutes and can
be opened to traffic immediately. The reactive process happens
relatively quickly and Aquaphalt starts to get hard and in most
cases will be fully cured in 24 hours. Since Aquaphalt™ does
not release any harmful VOCs, it can be sealed 24 hours after
Use automotive hand cleaners on hands. Tools may be cleaned
with light oil, mineral spirits or vegetable oil.
STORAGE & HANDLING
Each bucket of Aquaphalt™ contains approximately 23 KG (50
lb) of material. Store indoors, in cool, dry conditions. Avoid direct
sunlight and/or exposure to freezing. Aquaphalt™ can be applied
in freezing conditions, but workability is best when it is stored

AN ALTERNATE OPTION IS: SAKRETE top'n bond.....
TDS available at: https://www.kpmindustries.com/KingHomeImprovementProducts/wp-content/uploads/sites/12/2014/02/SAKRETE-topn-bond-TDS-ENG-REV.0005.pdf....
SAKRETE top’n bond is a polymer modified, pre-blended,
ready-to-use, cement mixture with superior bonding, specifically
designed for repairing concrete quickly and easily. Forms a
bond that is 8 to 10 times stronger than that of regular cement
mix. Use for concrete repairs from a feather-edge up to 1/2 inch
(1.25 cm) thick. Open to light foot traffic in 12 to 24 hours, and
heavy traffic after 48 hours.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
• Sticks to existing concrete
• Feather-edges easily
• High strength
• Just add water
Ideal for repairing, smoothing or resurfacing concrete slabs,
driveways, sidewalks, steps, walls or any worn, chipped or
spalled concrete surface. It may also be used for setting dense
surfaced stone, marble or slate, and as a setting bed for quarry
tile, flagstone, brick or patio block units.
Mix and substrate temperatures should be maintained between
5 ºC and 30 ºC (40 ºF and 86 ºF) for at least 24 hours prior to
and 48 hours after.
Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be repaired must be
structurally 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.
Mixing: Empty contents into mixing container. Add
approximately 140 mL (4.75 oz) of clean water per 1 KG (2.2 lb)
or enough to achieve a workable mix. Mix only the amount that
can be used in 30 minutes. 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.
NOTE: Concrete bonding agents are not recommended with
SAKRETE top’n bond.
Shallow repairs up to 1/2 inch (1.25 cm): After mixing, trowel
in a thin layer to the prepared dampened surface, forcing mix
into the pores of the old concrete. Then, immediately spread
more material to the required thickness, and level off.
Deep repairs, exceeding 1/2 inch (1.25 cm): After leveling off
the initial layer at 1/2 inch (1.25 cm), rough-up the surface with
a coarse broom and allow to harden for 24 hours. Repeat the
process until the desired thickness is reached.
Finishing: Level off the repair at the desired thickness and
finish smooth with a dampened trowel. For a textured surface,
use a broom or brush.
Curing means maintaining proper moisture and temperature.
Because of high water retention properties, SAKRETE top’n
bond requires no special curing under normal conditions. When
exposed to high heat or direct, hot sunlight, cover the patched
area with a plastic sheet for 24 hours. Do not wet the surface
with water after troweling operation has been completed.
Substrate temperatures should be maintained between 5 ºC
and 30 ºC (40 ºF and 86 ºF) for at least 24 hours prior to and
48 hours after.
Initial Set: approximately 4 hours
Final Set: approximately 5.5 hours
Compressive Strength: 3 Day 20 MPa (3000 psi)
7 Day 23 MPa (3400 psi)

Concrete must be fully cured (approximately 28 days) and
dry before painting. Refer to paint manufacturer directions for
