Advantages of the Five Star Repair Concrete
Since it contains non-reactive components and low soluble alkali cement content, this concrete offers flexibility and durability. It does not break down when it comes into contact with other chemicals, therefore it maintains its structural integrity. Its variable application thickness means you can use it for a wide range of repairs. It also allows for the formation of intricate false-work due to its free flowing nature. You will also love its rapid strength development because it reduces the repair possession time. So if you are looking for the right concrete for your construction task, Five Star Repair Concrete is definitely an option to consider.
Five-star repair concrete is packed in 25kg bags. While mixing the product for application, it is advisable to use no more than 3.1 to 3.3 litres of water per bag. Using 3.3 litres of water allows optimum flow during use. It is important to note that while mixing you must use the whole bag of cement - using only part of it will not meet the required standards.
Storage and shelf life
