Quikrete Introduces Three New Products
The Quikrete Companies, the leading manufacturer of pre-blended commercial-grade concrete products for the building and home improvement industries, recently introduced Quikrete Pro Fast-Setting Concrete Mix, Advanced Formula Quikrete Concrete Resurfacer and QuikreteAdvanced Polymer Adhesives at the World of Concrete (WOC).
Quikrete Pro Fast-Setting Concrete
The dominate product for setting posts in 20 to 40 minutes without mixing, Quikrete Fast-Setting Concrete Mix in the Red Bag is also ideal for pouring utility pads and other relatively small slabs. At the urging of contractors, Quikrete augmented the mix to create Quikrete Pro Fast-Setting Concrete, which has twice the working time while still delivering the strength necessary for larger concrete slab projects. Designed specifically for contractors, commercial-grade Quikrete Pro Fast-Setting Concrete is available in 80-pound bags for about seven dollars, which makes it an affordable option for pouring concrete slabs quickly without compromising quality.
Advanced Formula Quikrete Concrete Resurfacer
Designed to provide a permanent wear resistant surface that can withstand foot, vehicle and other heavy traffic, the new upgraded Quikrete Concrete Resurfacer formula delivers 3x greater bond strength, improved workability and extended working time. As a result, it’s easier and faster to transform and old worn concrete surface into a durable, long-lasting sidewalk, driveway or patio. In addition to establishing a new standard for resurfacing concrete, the new Quikrete Concrete Resurfacer is packaged in an exclusive Weather Barrier Bag that will protect it from inclement weather and other harmful elements for up to eight months.
A special blend of Portland cement, sand, state-of-the-art polymer modifiers and other proprietary additives, Quikrete Concrete Resurfacer is a proven shrinkage compensated repair material for making thin structural repairs to sound concrete in need of surface renewal. Surpassing the performance of competing products, tensile bond strength tests reveal that a concrete substrate will fracture or crack before its bond with Quikrete Concrete Resurfacer fails. Applied with a squeegee, trowel or brush, one 40-pound bag will cover approximately 17 square-feet at 1/4 inches thick or approximately 90 square feet as skim coat. With a walk-on time of eight hours and drive-on time of 24 hours, it can renew a surface for 25 cents per square foot versus more than $3 per square foot to remove and pour a new slab.
Quikrete Advanced Polymer Sealant Adhesives
A solvent and isocyanate free line of high-performance, commercial-grade flexible repair and bonding materials, Quikrete Advanced Polymer Adhesives meet ASTM C920 standards. Designed to deliver or exceed the performance of traditional polyurethane or silicone sealants and adhesives, the single-component Quikrete Advanced Polymer Adhesives are environmentally-friendly alternatives. Available in 10-ounce tubes, the Quikrete Advanced Polymer Adhesives are applied with a high-quality caulk gun.
