"This is super stuff, most recent repair was a chipped concrete garage step. It matches the texture and strength of original concrete exactly and almost the colour. This allowed a door seal to work rather than leave a mouse sized gap. Can't think of any other product on the market that I could have used to repair to same standard and quality. Not sure of shelf life as it's not something you would use everyday but it's a great addition to the toolkit and allows you to do the job right."
It is really useful to have a tube of ready mixed cement in your tool bag that can be applied with the use of a mastic gun.
Found it particularly useful when I have dug a bit too much wall out to install a metal electrical socket box.
A squirt of this in the back of the hole and pushing the box in causes the cement to spread and set. Put a few raw plugs through the holes in the back of the box to make a secure fitting once the cement has finally hardened off.
When applied thinly it sets quite quickly. If you use it in mass give it a good few hours to set, for best results.
"For those who have used the product and found it difficult to squeeze out of the tube I can only assume that it must have been off as the tube I used came out with very little effort. The granules in the mix are quite large which made it difficult to repair small cracks, it filled the majority of the crack but trying to get a smooth blended finish is virtually impossible, not for fine finishing detail due to its course mix."
"Once the first couple of inches had been force out of tube could NOT get rest to come out, had to cut end off the tube body to get rest of product. The product worked great when used to fill cracks in my concrete fence posts."
