FAST SETTING CONCRETE MIX-FSC-3000

Concrete Mix is a workable, fast setting, high quality concrete repair and concrete restoration material, that is ideal where fast strength gain, high durability and low shrinkage are desired.
FSC-3000 Concrete Mix, ideal for concrete repair, is a multipurpose, fast setting product that can be used for repair and construction of pavements, formed work, footings, setting posts, industrial floors, machine bases, and concrete repair.

COMPOSITION
Concrete Mix is a high performance blend of fast set of Nano polymeric cement and quality aggregates. Concrete Mix is non-metallic and no chlorides are added. Fast Set Concrete Mix is similar in appearance to Portland cement concrete and may be applied using similar methods.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
When mixed with water Concrete Mix produces a workable, high quality concrete repair product that is ideal where fast setting; high strength gain, maximum durability and low shrinkage are desired. Apply CONCRETE MIX in thickness from 2-in to 24-in. Durable in wet environments. SETS IN 15 MINUTES & IS READY FOR TRAFFIC IN 1-HOUR. One 60-lb. FSC-3000   Concrete Mix will yield approximately 0.5 cubic feet.

USES
Concrete Mix is a multipurpose, fast setting product that can be used for repair and construction of pavements, formed work, footings, setting posts, industrial floors, machine bases, and concrete repair.

COLOR [Light Grey]
The final color of Concrete Mix may vary due to application techniques and environmental conditions.

LIMITATIONS
Not intended for applications thinner than 2-in, for thin sections use FSC-3000 Cement ALL or   Mortar Mix. For applications where bonding is important, at least one test section should be prepared to evaluate the suitability of the materials and procedures.

SURFACE PREPARATION
Where bonding is important, the adjacent surfaces shall be clean, sound and free from any materials that may inhibit bond such as oil, asphalt, curing compounds, acids, dirt and loose debris. Roughen surfaces and remove all unsound concrete. Immediately prior to placement the repair surface shall be thoroughly saturated with no standing water.

MIXING
The use of a power driven mechanical mixer, such as a mortar mixer or a drill mounted mixer, is recommended. Organize work so that all personnel and equipment are in place before mixing. Use clean portable water.   Concrete Mix may be mixed using 3.5 to 4.5 quarts of water per 50-60 lbs of material. Use less water to achieve higher strengths. For increased fluidity and workability use EST’s plasticizer admixture for optimum results. Place the desired quantity of mix water into the mixing container. While the mixer is running add FSC-3000 Concrete Mix. Mix for the minimum amount of time required to achieve a lump-free, uniform consistency (usually 1 to 3 minutes). Do NOT re-temper.

PLACEMENT
FSC-3000 Concrete Mix may be placed using traditional methods. Organize work so that all personnel and equipment are ready before placement. Place, consolidate and screed quickly to allow for maximum finishing time. Do NOT wait for bleed water; apply final finish as soon as possible. FSC-3000 Concrete Mix may be troweled, floated or broom finished. On flat work Do NOT install in layers, install full depth sections and progress horizontally. Do NOT install on frozen surfaces. Use a method of consolidation that eliminates air voids.

CURING
Water cure all Rapid Set® Concrete Mix installations. Begin curing as soon as the surface has lost its moist sheen. Keep exposed surfaces wet for a minimum of 1 hour. When experiencing extended setting times, due to cold temperature or the use of retarder, longer cure times may be required. The objective of water curing shall be to maintain a continuously wet surface until the product has achieved sufficient strength.

TEMPERATURE
Warm environmental and materials temperatures will reduce the working time of FSC-3000 Concrete Mix. To compensate for warm temperatures, keep material cool and use chilled mix water. Temperatures below 70ºF (21ºC) will decrease the rate of strength gain and CONCRETE MIX should not be applied if surface or ambient temperature is below 45ºF (7.2ºC).

LIMITED WARRANTY
EST INC. Manufacturing Corporation warrants its material to be of good quality, and, at its sole option, within one year from date of sale, will replace defective materials or refund the purchase price thereof and such replacement or refund shall be the limit of EST’s responsibility. Except for the foregoing, all warranties, express or implied including merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are excluded. EST INC. shall not be liable for any consequential, incidental, or special damages arising directly or indirectly from the use of the material.

CAUTION
Concrete Mix contains cement and Nano polymeric complex materials and may cause irritation to lungs, eyes and skin. Avoid contact. Use only in adequate ventilation. Do NOT breathe dust. Wet mixture may cause burns. Wear suitable gloves, eye protection and protective clothing. In case of skin contact, wash thoroughly with soap and water. In case of eye contact, flush immediately and repeatedly with large quantities of water and get prompt medical attention. In case of difficulty breathing, remove person to fresh air. If difficulty breathing persists, seek medical attention
