Epoxy Patch For Spalling ?


I do maint at this restaurant complex.The concrete was poured 1 year ago. There are several issues with it but that's for another day.

There are approx 5 areas maybe 6" x 18" that are spalling --- 1/8" to feather. Want to stay on top of this maint issue.

I've looked at several 2 part epoxy patch products sold by the industrial supply houses.

If someone could make a recommendation as to a suitable product / mfg it would be helpful.

Re: Epoxy Patch For Spalling ?


I just posted a similar question on the flooring forum. I tried using Armorseal Express Patch, i was disappointed as it was very very expensive, could not feather out, and short working window. I found the aggregate to be too course for the shallow repair i needed.
The're were several suggestions given to me but i have not had time to try anything yet.

I'm looking to go with Abatron. Expensive but products are contractor friendly, very high quality and their support is good.

Re: Epoxy Patch For Spalling ?


Make sure you?re applying it to sound concrete. If the concrete is oily or greasy, epoxy won?t stick to it. But if you do use epoxy, just keep mixing some sand into it until yoy get a mortar, and trowel it into the spalled area. Then square it up woth 1 or 2 coats of just epoxy. But if the concrete is pily, then use urethane cement.
