DRYLOK® Concrete Patch

DRYLOK® Concrete Patch

DRYLOK® Concrete Patch is an interior and exterior latex and cement patching system used to patch, weld, and join brick and mortar, non-leaking cracks in masonry walls, masonry steps, and cracks in masonry floors. The special formula is fortified with a powdered bonding agent to improve masonry-to-masonry adhesion. DRYLOK® Concrete Patch is waterproof, self-curing, provides superior adhesion to hairline cracks and large breaks, and will not shrink after drying. Rest assured, it will not chip or crack like concrete.

Preparation

The area to be repaired must be clean and free from all dirt and loose material*. DRYLOK® Concrete Patch will not adhere to crumbly or powdery surfaces. If the area to be patched has been washed, mop up any excess water. Mix DRYLOK® Concrete Patch right in the DRYLOK® Concrete Patch container. Wear a dust mask to avoid breathing the dry powder**. Slowly add water to the special cement powder (1 part water to 3 parts cement for normal repairs), stirring constantly until the consistency is smooth. Adjust the consistency, if necessary, by adding additional water or cement powder. To repair small cracks, mix it to a thin consistency. For deep or wide repairs, mix it to a heavy consistency.

Application

Wet the surface to be patched with clean water. When repairing small cracks, apply DRYLOK® Concrete Patch with a stiff brush. After approximately 10 minutes, remove any excess material by scraping with a putty knife. For deep or wide repairs, apply the patch with a putty knife or trowel. DRYLOK® Concrete Patch should be used within 2 hours after mixing. Even though DRYLOK® Concrete Patch provides better adhesion than other types of repair materials, the reopening of patched area, due to settling and expansion or contraction, can occur. Do not use in temperatures below 40°F. To strengthen the bond of DRYLOK® Concrete Patch to difficult surfaces, like dense or slick concrete, coat the surface with DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent instead of water before patching. Apply DRYLOK® Latex Bonding Agent by brush or spray. Wait for it to change from a milky color to a clear glaze (approximately 30 minutes) before applying the patch.
