Floor patch and leveling products should only be applied to Stabilized Concrete. A substrate treated with StableCrete is waterproofed and does not absorb patch mix water, which causes shrinkage cracks at the host/patch interface. These waterproofed surfaces also do not allow chemical migration from the host concrete to interfere with a patch bond. Most importantly with a repair/patch, is increased resistance to “Anodic Ring Effect”, common to patched concrete.
A waterproofed concrete offers increased resistance to the flow of electrical currents present in the electrochemical action that causes corrosion and patch failures.
