Stone Mix

stone mix bag

 A perfectly proportioned blend of high quality Portland Cement, clean concrete sand, and dry, crushed aggregate.

USES

Use where the thickness of finished Concrete will be in excess of 2 inches. (see CONCRETE SAND MIX for finished Concrete less than 2 inches).

Available in 60#, 66# and 80#

SUGGESTED USES

Sidewalks - Driveways - Fence Posts - Steps - Foundations - Patios - Walls - Curbs - Spillways - Ponds - Ramps

FEATURES AND TECHNICAL DATA
COVERAGE

Each 66 lb bag will produce about ½ cu foot of finished Concrete. For construction tubes:
6" tube requires ½ bag per foot of height
8" tube requires 1 bag per foot of height
10" tube requires 11/4 bags per foot of height
12" tube requires 2 bags per foot of height

DIRECTIONS

Empty contents of bag into mixer or wheelbarrow. Add water to the material, mixing as you go. Required water is about 2 1/2 quarts per bag. Too much water reduces the overall strength. Once mixed, pour the Concrete into desired area and tamp with a rod to eliminate voids. On slabs, level with a horizontal strike board before finishing. Normal finishing tools (float or trowel) are all that are needed to finish. Allow Concrete to set at least 1 day. For heavy traffic, allow 3 days of curing.

FOR BEST RESULTS

Apply freshly mixed Concrete as soon as possible. Do not attempt to re-mix after the initial set. Surface areas of the old Concrete should be clean and dampened before placing the newly mixed Concrete material. When applying new Concrete to old, a liquid Concrete Bonding Agent should be first applied. If possible, keep the new Concrete surface moist for at least 3 days of curing. Plastic film or damp burlap is recommended. Do not apply in less than a 2 inch thickness. Do not apply if the temperature is expected to fall below 40°F within the next 24 hours.
