PC-Crete™ Epoxy is a hand-mixable, fast-setting epoxy putty that quickly repairs concrete and masonry. After mixing, it forms a concrete repair polymer that cures to a concrete-like color and texture. The mixture readily sticks to concrete and masonry surfaces and is easily shaped. It will stick to ceramics, glass, metals and some plastics. It cures within 60 minutes. Each stick contains pre-measured portions of activator and base — no measuring or mixing tools are necessary.

How to prepare a surface for bonding with PC-Crete™
Old concrete must be clean and profiled or textured. Surface must be clean and sound. It may be dry or damp, but free of standing water. Remove contaminants such as dust, dirt, oil and grime with a solvent such as denatured alcohol (ethanol), acetone, rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or lacquer thinner. Mild detergent solution in water is also good removing contaminants. Use a clean paper towel or rag for wiping. Do not use mineral spirits or paint thinner for removing contaminants. Remove rust and loose paint with sandpaper or wire brush. Epoxy typically sticks to most paints. If there is a concern of the paint’s adhesion then remove it with sandpaper or wire brush. Smooth, glossy and shiny surfaces should be roughened using sandpaper to increase adhesion.
How to clean-up after PC-Crete™ application
Clean up mixed epoxy before it cures with paper towels and solvent. Denatured alcohol (ethanol), acetone, rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or lacquer thinner are suitable solvents for removing uncured epoxy. Cured epoxy can be removed with paint stripper or remover.

The PC-Crete™ is not easily grabbing or sticking to the concrete surface. It pulls away lifting loose stones
The putty wants to stick to the fingers more than the concrete surface. Wet the fingers with alcohol and then press, shape and smooth the applied putty. Also, loose stones can be wire brushed away to provide a sound surface.
PC-Crete™ does not have a smooth texture. It has particles throughout
The particles in PC-Crete™ are used to simulate the appearance of concrete.
