Customer Questions & Answers
Q I have a 4 by 8 post, mounted to a concrete pad and collar that provides partial support for a horizontal beam. I am going to repair the water damaged end of the post with Liquid Wood and WoodEpox. Would Aboweld 55-1 be suitable to repair and rebuild the concrete collar at the bottom? If so, I may need to apply it in layers to get the desired thickness (about 3/4 at the base, tapering up about three inches). For layering Aboweld how long should it cure before applying an additional layer? Thank you.Answered by the admin Not sure what a “collar” is. Send picture to firstname.lastname@example.org to the attention of technical support. Aboweld 55-1 can be applied in any thickness at one time.
Q Can aboweld be used instead of hydraulic cement to build up and repair Septic tanks and seal around pvc pipes? Is aboweld susceptible to microbial induced corrosion or hydrogen sulfide gases?Answered by the admin

Q Prior owner of my house drilled numerous holes in stucco & concrete to insert coax cable & wired network cables (i.e. quarter inch holes). Would Aboweld be suitable to fill these holes?Answered by the admin
Yes, you can use the Aboweld 55-1 for your repairs.
Q I am happy with the performance of this product but it is much lighter than the surrounding concrete. Can your product be colored/dyed darker after it's already in place? I do not want to coat/change the color of the entire area, just the repaired section.Answered by the admin
You can paint the Aboweld 55-1, be sure to sand or scuff the surface so the paint adheres well.
Q I have cracks along the exterior foundation of my building, where the foundation meets the concrete. We get some moisture into the basement from these cracks when it rains. Can Aboweld be used to fill in these cracks and even be built up slightly so that rain will not pool in these areas where the concrete meets the side of the building?Answered by the admin
