    Do’s
    • Apply freshly mixed concrete as soon as possible
    • Surface areas of the old concrete should be cleaned and dampened before placing the newly mixed concrete material.
    • When applying new concrete to old, a liquid concrete bonding agent should be first applied. 
    • Plastic film or a damp burlap is recommended
    Don’ts
    • Do not attempt to re-mix after the initial set.
    • Do not apply in less than a 5cm (2”) thickness.
