Does what it says

Would be difficult to mix in the tub it comes in. Mix is not easily worked but had a smooth finish and sets hard in 20-30 mins. Doesn’t go as far as you think, use to fill 100mm wide void which was 10mm deep. Only covered 2 meters so need another tub to complete it
Excellent product !

Better Mixing your own

Bought this to repair back door step and found it difficult to get right consistency. The just got normal cement mix and sand and this was far easier and cheaper. Would only consider using this if repairing up to 4 bricks as thats all it really does.

if you know how to use it, we cut it with ordinary cement to adjust set times.
You need to take into account the absent temperature, very different winter to summer set times. Needs to be a 4 :1 mix (by weight or volume, not shovels) to get a good result

Use ordinary cement and save money. This was not set as per the instructions.
Have been laying cement for many years and not impressed with this.
12 hours later still reasonably soft to the touch.
