Vertical concrete repair with Roadware 10 Minute Concrete Mender™ is simple if you use a few basic techniques. The following is a repair to a spalled out concrete step. As with any concrete repair, the first step is to remove any loose concrete with a chisel and clean the repair area with a wire brush and a shop vacuum. Remove all dust, dirt and loose materials. Any moisture on the concrete surfaces should be allowed to dry. On occasion, I will use a heat gun to dry the concrete.
Roadware Flexible Cement II™ is semi-ridged polyurethane for creating flexible bonds between concrete surfaces and other materials. This versatile material may also be used to protect contraction joints from traffic deterioration.

Repairs are tough and can handle heavy industrial traffic.
Use Flexible Cement II™ to protect joints and cracks in concrete bridge decks and pavement where heavy traffic is anticipated. This polyurethane is about as hard as a roller blade wheel and will prevent debris from filling cracks and causing further deterioration of the concrete.
Flexible Cement II™ is recommended for low movement crack repair. This tough material will hold up to forklift and industrial traffic while allowing for some movement. For high movement areas and expansion joints, we recommend a softer caulk type material.
Flexible Cement II™ repairs are ready for traffic in just 10 minute at 75 degrees F (24C).
Bulk mixing Flexible Cement II™:
The passenger tram at this airport gilds on pillows of air. Flexible Cement II is used to prevent the expansion joints from damaging the air pillows.
One of the 12 air pillows that support each car. Flexible Cement II™ prevents metal expansion joints from lifting up and cutting the air pillow as the car passes.
Flexible Cement II™ is used to protect the interface between the metal expansion joint and the concrete. This allows for a smooth surface for the air lift cars to glide over.
Use Flexible Cement II™ to repair sawn contraction joints and cracks
How often have you run into this problem? Industrial railings that have been split apart due to age, abuse, or weather damage. With a few special techniques, you can repair these problems with Roadware 10 Minute Concrete Mender™.
Clean the repair area with a wire brush or by sandblasting. Remove as much of the rust as possible. It is also a good idea to spray the the steel railing with a rust neutralizer.
