RE:Concrete Footpath Sealant

I used to apply a coloured non-slip coating which required a bonding agent to be applied to the cleaned concrete surface first. They also make sealers both water and solvent based. Most recently I used the bonding agent (Trubond) to treat an area of concrete carpark prior to line marking with standard spray can line marking paint. The work was done about 5 months ago and the cleaned concrete still stands out from the uncleaned areas. Basically the bonding agent can be used in conjunction with the sealer to ensure adhesion with the bonding agent aiding in stopping the algae that grows in the concrete surface from growing (it is the dead algae that gives concrete its grey colour)

RE:Concrete Footpath Sealant

We have built a large number of decorative footpaths in recents years and in some pretty difficult locations where staining and similar damage was highly likely (eg walk in entry to hospital ED - blood staining)

Concrete Footpath Sealant

Over the last few years Council has been building wider footpaths in our main street (~5,000 m2) and honing off the surface to show the colourful stones in the concrete. The problems are that without an appropriate sealant, the concrete looks a duly bland grey all over and it has become stained with dirt, spilt drink and food, and of course the ever-present chewing gum spits. Can anyone recommend an appropriate, affordable and easily maintained concrete sealant that, we can use after high pressure steam cleaning, will bring up the colours, reduce staining and is easily cleaned and maintained?

You could try 'Diamite' which case hardens concrete but not sure about how much it seals or another product is 'Acrylseal' from Concrete Protection in Melbourne. This is an acrylic sealer which works really well inside (Its very easy to apply) but Im unsure about how it goes outdoors in relation to UV etc. -- Simon Murphy Macdonnell Shire Council ALICE SPRINGS --

RE:Fibre Reinforced Concrete for Footpaths

TSEs results come by way of an easy to ready chart that compares the fibre/dosage tested to that of mesh reinforced concrete (panel tests). The chart will read (for example) 4kg of 'x' fibre is equivalent to F72 mesh in 'x'mm concrete. Some fibre suppliers require 9kg of fibres to meet a 72 mesh where others require only 4kg. 9 kg of fibre per m3 is not only more expensive (obviously) but it will effect the workability and finish of the concrete. So yes, scrutinize the dosage rate thoroughly with your potential supplier and ask for their TSE results (or independant testing) to support their feedback. -- Vanessa Dutton Southern Regional Manager Propex Concrete Systems MCLAREN VALE SAau --

In order for fibres to effectively redistribute the tensile forces they should have a tensile strength greater than 500Mpa, Because there is no standard for fibre reinforced concrete in Australia, many of the reputable supplier adheres adopt Eurocode standard above
