Flexane® Fast-Cure Rubber Repair Putty
Over several years of service, water contamination and traffic have caused the concrete to become spalled and eroded. Corrosion has also caused the handrail to become dislodged from the concrete.
Loose concrete was removed using a grinder and wire wheel attachment. Solid concrete was then roughened. Forms were manufactured from metal and placed into position around the repair areas. Duct tape was used to hold the forms in place. Devcon's Release Agent was applied to the forms for easy removal following partial cure of Floor Patch Fast Cure. Release agent must be used for easy part or form removal. An oversized metal pipe extension was positioned around the existing rail. Wood wedges were positioned to center the rail within the pipe extension. Floor Patch Fast Cure, (90 minute functional cure), was applied to rebuild missing concrete. Following a partial cure of Floor Patch fast Cure, (15 minutes), the metal forms were removed. FL10 Primer was applied to the metal rail and pipe. Flexane 80 Liquid Fast Cure, (90 minute functional cure), was injected as a flexible filler between the pipe and rail. Flexane 80 Liquid will remain flexible, (350% elongation), while resisting freeze thaw cycles caused by seasonal weather changes.
