I have a device, used by the public, which is bolted to a horizontal
concrete surface. I would like to put a dollop of concrete over its base,
mainly for the appearance of security. But I don't want to mix anything
Is there a product I can use that can be shoveled right out of the
container, shaped around the base, and have it dry within an hour or two? I
couldn't find anything like that at Home Depot the other day.
Use anchoring cement mixed with latex additive, both available at Home
Depot. It replaces the water and will set in half an hour or so. The
latex additive adds substantially to the crack resistance,
weatherability and adhesive properties of the anchoring cement.
The latex additive is water based, and you're not clear about whether
any moisture at all is a problem, or if it's the mixing you don't want
Without more information it is tough to give a definitive answer.
Required information: interior or exterior?; thickness of base
covering?; base material the cement is supposed to stick to?.
Thanks for the suggestions. I will look into all of these at Home Depot
"No water" because I don't want to bother the location owner for the use of
his water in his back room for my device. It's an outdoor location.
