Customer Questions & Answers
Can 55-1 be applied at 40 degrees F?
Q Can 55-1 be applied at 40 degrees F? answer nowAsked by February 25, 2020 6:38 amonAnswered by the admin Temperature should be at least 50 degrees F for several hours before and after application. Cooler temperatures will make it take longer for the product to cure. You can apply heat after application to accelerate the curing time.
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.

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?
- 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?
- 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.
