Concrete Floor Repair using epoxy patch material HD-110
Repairing concrete floors is easy when you use the right stuff. Legacy Industrial's HD-110 Concrete Repair Patch is documented in this post. It's ability to make permanent repairs without shrinkage or cracking is unmatched. Use prior to coating with epoxy or stand-alone.
NOTE: Legacy's other formulas will install similar to the HD-110 pictured.
This includes: HD-124, 128, and 130 repair products.
Prep the area by knocking out any loose material, vacuum or broom dust/debris.
Open the kit. Remove the contents, place the silica aggregate into a spare bucket (blue bucket shown). Make sure you have a steel trowel, mixing drill and mixing wand/attachment.
Pour the A & B into the steel can, mix for 3 minutes (use this procedure for all epoxy coatings too)
Once resins are mixed properly, pour silica aggregate into container. Use more aggregate for deep repair, use less aggregate for shallow repair.
Make sure all the aggregate is wet.
Get ready to apply the material, if you used most of the aggregate the material will be of a peanut butter consistency.
Apply strong pressure to the trowel, pushing the material into the repair area.
Smooth the surface as you would with cement. Hit your trowel with some "Windex" on the last stroke, it will really smooth out and will shed any resin sticking to the steel.
Your repair can be walked on 6-8 hours and driven on in 24 hours. Legacy Industrial offers several versions of this product for these applications: heavy duty, chemical resisitant, extreme chemical resistance, cold weather, cooler duty, freezer duty, food grade and economy blend.
