Customer Questions & Answers
Q I have a 1925 home with flaky concrete basement walls. Would this product be could for stabilizing the outer surface? How thick should it be applied? How far will 2 gallons go?Answered by the admin
You can use it on the basements walls to fill the voids, it does not consolidate any flaky areas. Two gallons will cover 462 cubic inches.
Q I have an antique urn (approximately 75-100 yrs. old) that is square-shaped. When moved, several edges broke off and several vertical fissures down the length of it formed. It is cast concrete, but a very sandy, friable, crumbly sort of concrete. Can I use ABOWELD on it? If so, what can I use to fill in the missing pieces?Answered by the admin
Yes, you can use the Aboweld to make your repairs.
Q What product would you recommend for replacing concrete in an old rubble foundation? In heavy rains, water finds its way between the stones and into the basement.Answered by the admin
Actually the better approach might be to cut out the old concrete or mortar and replace it with new mortar. Abocrete and Aboweld 55-1 will make excellent water barriers and fill the cracks without shrinkage. However, they probably are also stronger than the stone, unless it is a very hard stone like granite, and could cause the stone to crack during periods when temperatures are cycling up and down. If the you don't think this will be a problem, then I would recommend Abocrete and Aboweld 55-1.
Q I would like to glue a metal safe to the floor of my underground storm shelter, which is also metal. Is this the best product for this? It's a smaller safe, approximately 16"x16" base. I don't lock the shelter, but would like to be able to keep important documents,ents in the safe with the knowledge that it won't be stolen.Answered by the admin
This is a good choice for the application.
