Concrete Countertop Admixture
Make Your Own Countertop Mix Using 80lb. bags of 5000 psi Concrete
Direct Colors Concrete Countertop Admixture converts any 5000 psi concrete to a countertop-ready mix. Each admix contains polymers, additives and chopped fibers required for a glass fiber reinforced countertop. Add one 6.4 lb. admixture packet per 80 lbs. bag of 5000 psi concrete for best results. Our Concrete Countertop Admix helps prevent surface cracking, promotes an even cure rate, improves flowability, provides for smoother concrete texture and raises the countertop crush and flex strength by approximately 20%. Suitable for any wet-pour or dry-pack countertop. Add the concrete countertop admix packet to the drum mixer prior to the concrete. Pour water into the mixer and combine. Blend materials for a minimum of 10 minutes before using.
Use our fiberglass netting instead of wire or re-bar. Fiberglass netting in conjunction with chopped fibers provides excellent strength without excessive weight. Make moving your countertop easier with fiberglass netting! Click for detailed information on how to construct a concrete countertop or visit our how to videos page to see how the experts do it!
