FAST Concrete Repair with SPARTACOTE FAST FIX by Morgantown Concrete

Professional Concrete and Coatings Contractors run into all kinds of different concrete problems when they’re working in the field. These include pop-outs, pitting, scaling, and spalling. While concrete is a wonderful building material, it is not without its problems. Concrete cracking is so commonplace that expert contractors expect to find them in the field. They plan for them and are never surprised whenever they’re encountered.

While large cracks are not as common as hairline fractures, these can be particularly pernicious to a resinous floor coating if left untreated. As the substrate continues to move—and it does—it takes the floor coating along with it as it expands further. Any floor coating is only as good as its underlying concrete substrate. A weak or unsound concrete surface creates a weak or unsound floor coating, covering or topping.

To complement its polyaspartic and epoxy concrete coatings, SPARTACOTE also offers FAST FIX, a two part, very fast setting hybrid urethane repair material for concrete cracks, spalls, pop-outs, and hairline fractures. Combined with aggregate, FAST FIX can be used for patching spalls and repairing joints and large cracks in concrete. Available in low odor formulations, FAST FIX sets up within ten minutes after mixing, and the exothermic material expands to fill in the repair areas. After approximately 20 minutes, installers can grind off the excess material by mechanical profile, taking the concrete surface to an ICRI CSP 2. This makes for speedy concrete repairs necessary for installers under tight project schedules.

SPARTACOTE FLEX PURE Concrete Coatings – Perfect for new construction in residential garages

SPARTACOTE FLEX PURE Concrete Coatings – Perfect for new construction in residential garages

SPARTACOTE Flex PURE Concrete Coatings by LATICRETE offer homeowners incredible durability, excellent impact and wear resistance, and fast return to service. PURE concrete coatings are very low VOC, emitting minimal application odor, making them ideal for new construction or indoor applications, such as garages, hallways, bathrooms and basements.

SPARTACOTE Flex PURE is available in dozens of colors and textures. Unlike epoxy coatings, PURE will not leave hot tire markings and is UV-resistant. Spartacote PURE coatings are typically applied in one day, making them ready for foot traffic in 2 hours and vehicle traffic in 24 hours.

We recently applied PURE in a new suburban residential garage. This is a 3-car garage, approximately 1,240 sq ft. Despite its larger size, the SPARTACOTE coatings crew applied the PURE resin material in under 8 hours—including cure time. The homeowners were walking on their new Spartacote Flex PURE concrete floor by early evening.

Watch the video below to see how the SPARTACOTE FLEX PURE coating goes down in new residential garages.
