If you have never tried applying a first coat sealer to your concrete before, I highly recommend Topcrete. There are several great advantages to doing so. For starters, it will protect the cement underneath from cracking. It will also help to keep water out of the concrete while the coating cures. Here is a quick guide on how to properly apply a first coat sealer to your concrete.
To begin with, you will need to clean the floor. This will include sweeping and rinsing off any loose debris. After that you should remove all of the rags and hand towels that were used to apply the sealer as well as any chemicals that were used during application. This includes any bleach that was used for the sealing process. After that you should rinse the floor completely and make sure that all surfaces are thoroughly dry before beginning your application.
After that you should begin to pour the high density aggregates into one large bucket. These materials include the cement, sand, water, gravel, metal mesh, paint, and other additives. When these materials come into contact with the concrete they will form a protective coating over the top concrete. This coating ensures that the top concrete does not crack or break apart while the coating cures.
Prior to pouring the aggregates, you should use plastic bags and drop them into a container that has been approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency. All bags and containers used in this process must be spill proof and must be made from glass or laminated plastic. You should also make sure that you have no loose plastic from the bag that was used to drop the aggregate blocks into. After that you should pour the lightweight aggregates into the bucket and then run the spray head over the top to ensure that the mixture is properly mixed with the concrete.
After that you should proceed to pour the second batch of concrete and apply it to the exterior of the building. The mix that you use for this batch should be based on the size of the building’s external walls and the height of the building. The reason why you need to use this second batch of concrete is because it ensures that you do not have empty or insufficient spaces between the concrete and the outer walls. This is important for sound insulation of the building.
When you have finished mixing the two previous batches you should pour the third batch of the reinforced concrete onto the external walls. Make sure that the external walls are completely flat to reduce the amount of noise that is created when walking across them. After you have poured the concrete, you should allow it to dry for about 30 minutes before removing the top layer of concrete. After the third batch you should repeat the process until you achieve the right level of sound insulation for your building. The entire process should take about an hour to perform but the insulation that you will achieve will not be noticeable because the top layer of the concrete was removed prior to the application of the external wall.
