  5. Top 5 Tips for TrowelPave Speed Set Concrete

    Always wear personal protective equipment (PPE) when mixing and installing TrowelPave including safety glasses, long sleeve shirt, long pants, and a breather mask for prolonged exposure. Avoid skin contact with liquid binding agent. Do not inhale aggregate dust.
    ➢ For optimal results, TrowelPave Speed Set should be installed in a 50º-90º F (10-32.2 C) temperature range. Avoid heavy rains, freezing conditions, or extreme heat as it can impede the mixing process and affect the curing phase of blended TrowelPave material.
    ➢ Each individual TrowelPave Speed Set batch should be installed no later than 10 minutes after mixing. Initial set will typically occur within 1 hour, at which time the repair area can be opened for use. Initial set is the stage at which the blended material bonds at the surface level allowing minimal abrasion. Allow 24-72 hours for complete cure.
    ➢ To aid finishing and compacting of TrowelPave blended material, apply PAM® aerosol cooking spray to tools and equipment such as trowels and plate compactors. Use WD-40® and a rag to clean tools and equipment immediately after use.
    ➢ To reduce the non-operating time of an asphalt repair, increase the compaction value by using a vibratory plate compactor or roller. Speed Set asphalt repairs are typically weatherproof after reaching a mechanical compaction value of 95% or greater. Do not use mechanical compaction for TrowelPave Concrete material as it can cause separation. Instead, use a hand tamp and trowel.




  6. Preparation

    PROJECT PLANNING
    ➢ Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is mandatory.
    ○ Safety glasses / face shield
    ○ Impenetrable gloves
    ○ Long sleeve shirt
    ○ Long pants
    ○ Close-toe shoes or boot
    ➢ For road and parking area repairs, consider traffic safety for repair and curing time.
    ➢ To reduce the non-operating time of a repair, increase the compaction value by using mechanical compaction via vibratory plate compactor or roller.
    ➢ Avoid icy or freezing conditions as it can extend the curing phase of the blended TrowelPave material.
    ➢ Calculate the amount of TrowelPave material needed by finding the cubic feet (or metric equivalent) of the project area.
    ○ Use the coverage generalization chart for estimating purposes.
    ➢ Consider the amount of TrowelPave material needed, labor force, and allowable installation and curing time before starting a large project.
    ○ This will reduce issues with excess material curing before there is time to install.
    ○ Each individual TrowelPave batch should be installed no later than 10 minutes after mixing in normal temperature conditions (40º-90º F) .

    ■ Take care to avoid spinning the binder out of the bucket before it is tilled into the aggregate.
    ○ Mix thoroughly until the aggregate color is consistent (it will change colors from start to finish).
    ○ Pour the remaining aggregate into Mixing Bucket directly on top of blended material.
    ○ Make a cone-shaped divot in the middle of the aggregate.
    ○ Pour remaining liquid binding agent bottle into divot.
    ○ Insert Mixing Wand and begin to spin, slowly at first, and then progressively faster.
    ■ Take care to avoid spinning the binder out of the bucket before it is tilled into the aggregate.
    ○ Mix thoroughly until the aggregate color is consistent (it will change colors from start to finish).
    ○ Clean Mixing Wand and other accessories with WD-40® and a rag as needed.


    MIXING: Standard Equipment

    IMPORTANT! Mix entire contents of aggregate bucket and liquid binding agent bottle.
    ○ The liquid binding agent should not be stored or reused after opened.
    ➢ Pour TrowelPave aggregate contents into an appropriately sized mixing container.
    ○ Wheelbarrow
    ○ Mixing basin or tub
    ○ Poly or steel drum paddle mixer
    ➢ Pour liquid binding agent over aggregate mix.
    IMPORTANT! Avoid pouring liquid onto mixing container walls or mixing tools.
    ○ If mixing on a concrete or hardscape surface, place a tarp below to catch any accidental spills.
    ○ Pour entire contents of bottle over aggregates.
    ➢ If mixing a wheelbarrow or basin, use a mixing tool to sweep dry aggregate mix over the top of the liquid binding agent.
    ➢ Once uniformly covered, begin mixing in a back and forth motion and turn over to mix material thoroughly.
    TIP: Use back side of shovel to drag materials up the sloped edge of the front of a wheelbarrow during mixing.
    TIP: In between shovel or garden hoe mixing, lean wheelbarrow on its back legs and then forward on the wheel to disperse material better.
    ➢ Aggregate mix should uniformly change color throughout once properly mixed (usually a darker color than dry material).
    ➢ If mixing with a electric or gas powered mortar mixer with paddles, mix until aggregates are a consistent color (as explained above).
    ○ ,IMPORTANT! Do not use a cement mixer as it will not mix aggregate and liquid binding agent thoroughly because of the flopping action while spinning.

    INSTALLATION
    IMPORTANT! TrowelPave Concrete - Speed Set is designed to cure up to 5 times faster than the TrowelPave Concrete - Regular Set product.
    ○ Initial set will typically occur within 1 hour in optimal temperature range of 50º-90º F (10-32.2 C), at which time the repair area can be opened for use.
    ○ Initial set is the stage at which the blended material bonds at the surface level allowing minimal abrasion.
    ○ Allow 24-72 hours for complete cure.
    IMPORTANT! For best results, do not install over standing water or during a heavy rain event except in emergency situations.
    ○ Damp situations are suitable for repair
    ○ In repair areas with standing water, remove excess standing water before installing TrowelPave.
    ➢ TrowelPave can be used to repair freeform areas from ¼” (6.4 mm) up to 4” (10 cm) with varying levels of depth throughout. ➢ In areas deeper than 4” (10 cm) it is recommended to install a crushed base rock material as a subbase for the TrowelPave material. ➢ IMPORTANT! Blended material should be installed within 10 minutes of mixing.
    ○ If working in a large area, plan mixing output accordingly to match installation speed.
    ➢ For best results, clean repair area thoroughly and remove any loose dust and debris.
    ○ Keep the repair area dry.
    ○ If water or pressure washing is needed, allow the area to dry before proceeding.
    ○ Chip loosely connected surface materials out to help prevent future deterioration of existing asphalt or concrete.
    ➢ Pour blended TrowelPave material into or over repair area.
    ➢ Using a standard concrete trowel, manipulate material into place.
    ➢ TrowelPave blended material finish grade will reduce with compaction (by hand with trowel or tamp).
    ○ Float material approximately ⅛” to ¼” (3.2-6.4 mm) higher than finish grade to allow for compaction.
    ➢ Smooth material to desired grade and aesthetic using a hand trowel.
    ○ TIP: Apply PAM® aerosol cooking spray as needed to trowel to allow for easier workability.
    ○ TIP: With trowel laying flat on blended material, gently move the trowel forward and back in consistent sliding motion to produce a more consistent surface aesthetic.
    ○ Blended material can be manipulated easily with a trowel to fill cracks, divots, and holes of varying depth.
    ○ Fill low spots with uncompacted material, trowel, and compress as needed to desired finish.
    ➢ Compact material thoroughly.
    IMPORTANT! Unlike the TrowelPave Asphalt, mechanical compaction of TrowelPave Concrete with a vibratory plate compactor is not recommended.
    ○ For small repair areas, use a metal or rubber based hand tamp and trowel to pack down material evenly.
    ○ A lightweight hand roller can be used in large, flat areas.
    ○ Thorough compaction will increase compressive strength and reduce both cure and inoperable times.
    ➢ Brush loose TrowelPave material away by hand using a whisk broom or handheld blower
    ➢ Keep project area free from foot or vehicular traffic up to 1 hour if possible.
    ○ Turn off any nearby irrigation sprinklers where water may reach the repair.
    ○ Observe and enforce local road safety guidelines when repairing vehicular traffic areas.




  8. Cure Times for TrowelPave Speed Set Concrete

    ○ Initial set will typically occur within 1 hour in optimal temperature range of 50º-90º F (10-32.2 C) at which time the repair area can be opened for use.
    ○ Initial set is the stage at which the blended material bonds at the surface level allowing minimal abrasion.
    ○ Allow 24-72 hours for complete cure




  9. Cleanup

    ➢ Clean any tools and equipment with WD-40® and a dry cloth as needed.
    ➢ In case of accidental liquid binding agent spill onto tools, equipment, or concrete / hardscape surface, clean immediately with WD-40® and a dry cloth as needed.
    ○ For dried binder, use acetone and a dry cloth or brush to scrub affected areas.
    ➢ In case of accidental liquid binding agent spill onto skin or clothes, clean immediately with soap and water.




  10. Storage of TrowelPave Speed Set Concrete

    ➢ Store unopened / unused TrowelPave bucket kits out of direct sunlight in areas with a temperature range of 40º-90º F (4.4-32.2 C).
    ○ Do not allow material to freeze
    ➢ Liquid binding agent should not be stored after opening as it can begin slowly curing inside the bottle once air is introduced.




  11. Maintenance

    ➢ TrowelPave blended material adheres to itself making future maintenance or repairs easy where the existing asphalt or concrete has continued to degrade.
    ➢ TrowelPave is a permanent solution that does not require regular or any maintenance in most situations
