105 Estimated Coverage:
Coverage table shown above is estimated at room temperature.

  • One unit 9lbs contain 270 cubic inch of material
  • One unit consists of part A and part B
  • Coverage will depend upon the workmanship and wastage.

106 Correct Joint Designs:
Flexi Patch should be installed full joint depth in control joints and 2” minimum depth in construction joints. Do not use Backer Rod with Flexi Patch Joint Filler. To prevent from running through shrinkage cracks at bottom of joint, use 1/8” to 1/4 of silica sand.

107 When to Install:
Flexi Patch Joint Filler is designed to be used on freshly placed and freshly saw cut concrete. However it may be installed anytime after the placement of concrete of final cure.

108 Application Method
1.  Surface preparation: floor should be cut at desired width and depth.  Joint and floor should be dust free, moisture free, ice free, and oil free before the application.
2.  Mixing method:
A.  Mixing must be done at room temperature (68’f) or above.  Do not mix smaller batch for partial mixing.  Part A and Part B are exact amount.
B.  Mix Part A with slow paddle mixture makes sure there is no moisture can enter while mixing.   Add Part B into Part A while mixing; pour all part B amount into mixture.  Expect weight is      required for curing.
C.  Mix at least for 2 minutes.  Exact timing required while mixing.  Mix till it becomes uniform.
D.  Once the unit is mixed, it has a pot life of 30 minutes at 68’f.
E.  Now mixture is ready to pour into the joints, for faster and cleaner application, take mixture out into smaller plastic container or cup before pouring into smaller joints.
F.  Once the mixture is poured into the joint than follow up with putty knife or scrapper for smoother application.
G.  We do not recommend cleaning of agitator between next container mixing.
H.  For cleaning up uses mineral spirits or odorless solvent for scrappers and agitator.

109 Easy Installation Guide:
It may be install by pouring, by closed barrel caulk gun or by polyethylene kits. It may be applied with custom made machine with variable mixing ratio units, for narrow joints, caulk gun provides neater joints and full depth application. Apply flexi Patch Joint Filler up 1/2” from top and allow settling, within 15 to 30 minutes applying a second layer flush with the floor, and checking joints to insure low spots due to seepage.

110 Important Factors:
A. Read mixing and application guide before doing any work.
B. Prepare surface carefully, cutting saw joints smooth as possible.
C. For complete cure minimum 48 hrs are required. Flexi Patch will cure faster at higher temperature.
D. Any cured material, rise up above the joint can be cut back to floor level with sharp scrapper or knife.
E. Flexi Patch will bond to old and new cured material.
F. Flexi Patch does not require air to cure. It has chemical cure property.
G. This material should be installed by only caulking applicators professional

111 Important Check Points Before Application:
1. Applicator should read this “Guide” before under taking any work.
2. Flexi Patch should be stored at room temperature in a dry place; shelf life at room temperature is 6 months.
3. Follow mixing instruction carefully.
4. Do not open traffic on the treated areas for 48 to 72 hours use metal plate to cover the traffic areas. Do not let metal plate touch the material.

112 Cured Material:
When Flexi Patch is fully cured it will feel like hard pliable rubber. It does not cure to be hard like concrete or epoxy. It is specially design to be like hard pliable rubber to withstand traffic. Pot life is 30 minutes after mixing part A and B.

113 Safety and storage:
Flexi Patch should be stored at room temperature (68’f or above). Moisture contamination will ruin the material. When working with Part B avoid contact with skin and eyes. In case of contact, wash skin with plenty of water. For eyes get medical attention. Contaminated clothing should be washed before use. Do not smoke during mixing or application. Use in well ventilated area only.

114 Flexi Patch:
Flexi Patch is designed for repairing and patching all types of concrete and masonry surfaces.

Basic Use:

  • Filling wide and deep joints.
  • Repairing and patching large spall and damage areas.
  • Use for applying between uneven slabs and floor joints

Mixing Instructions:
Mix Part A & B first. (Part A weight 7lbs, Part B weight 1lbs, total weight = 8lbs)
Than add part C silica sand into mix AB mixes well till uniform and designed constancy is achieved. Use trowel or hand mix with small wooden stick or slow speed paddle type slow mixer.

115 Mixing Ratios:
For self leveling – use 24lbs of silica sand with 8lbs of AB mix.
For trowel grade – use 32lbs, of silica sand with 8lbs of AB mix.
Mix well till mix is uniform and all silica is coated with AB mix.

Caution: Keep silica dry and store away from moister. Moisture may react with AB mix and may prolong curing time.

116 Application Method:
1. Cut damaged concrete areas even and smooth. Remove loose gravel and dirt. Dry up any visible moisture with air blower.
2. Coat inside surface with paintbrush using only AB mix. This will help adhesion to the sidewall of the patch.
3. Than pour ABC mix (part A, part B and part C silica sand mix) into the patching area.
4. Use trowel to even out poured material and make it even and smooth with the floor.
5. Keep mix from sticking to the trowel, use mineral spirit or odorless solvent to lubricate trowel.
6. Follow additional mixing instruction same as in section 108.

117 Cured Material:
When patch is fully cured it will fill like hard concrete, cured material will not crack, chip, or come out of it place. This patch will out last 10 time longer than concrete or epoxy patch.

118 Important Check Points:
Do not open traffic on the treated area for 48 to 72 hrs. Use metal plate to cover the traffic areas. Do not let metal plate touch the material. To ensure complete cure patch must be tack free, to touch. Patch will not sink like concrete. It will slight, rise above the floor level.
