Thorough substrate preparation is essential.
Concrete repairs should be prepared with squared off edges having a 10mm minimum vertical lip. Remove all loose material – wire brushing is advisable. Sweep clean or vacuum. The surface must be free from grease, oil or contamination. A gas torch will help to remove oil from the surface.

For application temperatures below 5oC – pre-warm the mixing vessel using hot water and warm the mixing water to between 25oC and 30oC. This will accelerate the cure time.
Measure 1.5Ltrs water into a clean mixing bucket and add the complete 25kg unit quantity of Cretex LT powder.
DO NOT EXCEED the stated ratio of water to powder.
Mix to a trowellable consistency using a heavy duty slow speed drill and mixing paddle or force action mixer.
Do not mix more than can be applied in 10 minutes.

Having prepared and pre-wetted the substrate, apply the material using a trowel immediately after mixing.
