InstaCrete is a hand-mixable, fast-setting epoxy putty that quickly
repairs concrete and masonry. It also bonds to metals, wood, glass,
and many plastics. After mixing, it forms a concrete repair polymer
that cures to a concrete-like color and texture. Each handy stick
contains pre-measured portions of activator and base throughoutno
measuring or mixing tools are necessary.
The consistency (like modeling clay) eliminates drips and runs,
facilitates adhesion to the substrate, and allows the material to
be shaped and formed as needed before curing begins. After 60
minutes the application can be drilled, sawed, filed, tapped, and
painted. Suitable for interior or exterior use, it is resistant to
water, chemicals, and temperature extremes.
InstaCrete contains no solvents or VOCs. It's non-flammable and
releases no noxious fumes. It won't shrink or pull away. The unused
portion stays fresh for future use when
saved in its original package.

How To Use:
Before applying, roughen and clean the area to be repaired.
Then follow these easy steps.
1. Cut or twist off required amount.
2. Mix by kneading with fingers to a uniform color. If mixing is
difficult, warm InstaCrete to room temperature or slightly above.
3. Apply to surface to be repaired within 2 minutes of mixing.
Force into any cracks or holes and strike off excess material,
preferably with a tool moistened with clean water.
When applying to a damp, wet or slowly leaking area, work
the mixed material forcefully into the surface and apply pressure
until adhesion begins to take effect.
For best results: Use damp fingers for easier mixing, application,
and smooth appearance of the cured compound. Remove excess
material before hardening begins.
Curing: InstaCrete has a 4- to 7-minute work life. Functional
cure occurs within 60 minutes.
