Polyurethane products are the simplest and fastest products available to repair concrete driveways. With these easy instructions your concrete driveway repair will be stronger and last longer than with traditional repair methods.

Standard concrete repair methods are time-consuming, taking a lot of tools, time and labor to complete. With polyurethane repair materials, concrete driveway repair is quick, strong and simple. Roklinís concrete repair products come in a complete package ready to repair concrete driveways. With a few simple hand tools, repairs are simple. There is no need to undercut, grind, or saw-cut cracked or damaged concrete. Simply sweep or blow out the damaged area, mix your materials and apply to repair cracked concrete driveway.

Repair Driveway

Concrete Driveways wonít last forever. Even the best laid concrete is subject to wear and tear, not to mention damage from sprinklers or other sources of water. Since driveways must carry heavy weight loads, the repaired area must be able to withstand significant pressure. The problem with concrete driveway crack filler, driveway concrete sealer and driveway cold patch is that the material is not as strong as the original concrete, and the bond is not always secure. When the repair breaks down, the damage is even worse than before it was fixed. What started as a simple driveway crack repair has turned into a major rehabilitation. With polyurethanes, the repair is strong yet flexible, preventing further breakdown. FlexSet actually bonds to the concrete driveway repair, making it last longer than just patching concrete driveways.

Year-Round Repairs

Polyurethane repairs can be done in most any weather. Provided the driveway can be dried before you begin, there is no need to worry about temperatures. FlexSet can be ordered with a catalyst for use in cold weather. With traditional repairs- patching concrete driveways using concrete driveway crack filler, driveway concrete sealer and driveway cold patch, the weather must be right and even with the best weather, it can take a minimum of five days wait before you can park again. With FlexSet, your concrete driveway repair will set up in under an hour regardless of humidity or cold.

Tools needed: FlexSet A push broom or blower Drill Trowel or Lute

First ensure that the damaged area is clean and dry. Sweep or blow out cracks so there is no loose debris. Using Roklinís FlexSet Concrete Repair Product, carefully pour contents of bottle "a" into provided 5-gallon bucket then add special sand. Next, shake thoroughly and pour bottle "b" into sand mixture. Mix with a paddle-mixer, using a drill. When mixture is completely wet, pour FlexSet onto damaged area and use a trowel or lute to smooth material into cracks. When damage is sufficiently smooth, toss topping sand by hand over repaired area to create a uniform look and feel. Your driveway can be ready for vehicles in about an hour.

FlexSet is available for purchase through the Roklin web site at www.roklinsystems.com or call 1-888-FlexSet. Other concrete and asphalt repair products are also available.
