FlashPatch Fast Setting Thin Concrete Patch Repair
SureCrete’s Flash Patch is a single component cement based chemical patching compound system providing a workable, no-slump patch that sets quickly for quicker return to service. Available in a white portland-cement formulation, just add water! Repairing and fixing your partially broken concrete slab may not be the most glorious part of creating a beautiful new cement surface, it is certainly one of the most important steps in a successful decorative or restorative concrete project. This product can help to ensure that whatever coating or overlay is used on top of your repaired slab will stay strong and continue to look wonderful for years to come.
While most cement patching products require a bonding agent and need to be left overnight to cure before any type of coating or overlay can be applied, our Flash Patch bag mix can be applied and is ready to receive a finish coat in a little as 1 hour unlike quikrete. Shortening this process can help you whether you’re just a weekend warrior trying to get your cracked concrete done quickly, or you’re a professional artisan contractor on a commercial project trying to make sure your clients are able to utilize their new flooring systems as soon as possible and is as easy as mix concrete in a bucket.

How Do You Apply SureCrete Quick Concrete Patching Material?
We tried to make it as simple and efficient as possible when utilizing our concrete repair mix and overlay materials, and repair is certainly no different.
- Cleaning is always your first priority in any concrete project. Make sure the surface is clear of all chemical contaminants, grease, oil, old paint and other foreign matter.
- It may not always be needed, but your surface may require some profiling to ensure the most secure bond of Flash Patch to your substrate.
- Dampen the area sightly without creating any puddles or pooling areas.
- Mix only enough product for your current project in a bucket, making sure it has a smooth consistency.
- Trowel mix onto your surface as needed, making sure not to apply too thick in a single pass.
