PREMIUM V-CRETE 5000 CONCRETE is a quality blend of portland cement, graded sand, and coarse aggregate. It is designed to be used in applications at least 2 inches thick. Specially designed for structural and load-bearing applications, including foundations, footings, walkways, drives, slabs, and anchoring posts and poles, Roman V-Crete is designed to exceed the specifications of ASTM C 387 for the most demanding contractor jobs.

One 80 lb. (36.4 kg) bag will require up to 4 quarts (3.7 L) of water. Thoroughly mix the contents of the bag with 3 quarts (2.8 L) of water, adding the remaining water a little at a time if the mix is too stiff. Adding too much water will weaken the mix and may cause cracking in the surface.
Use a screed or straight edge to level the surface. Newly poured concrete should set for about an hour or until the surface water begins to disappear before finishing. Trowel to a smooth finish, but do not overwork the surface. Over-troweling or finishing the surface too soon can lead to scaling, cracking, or dusting of the surface.
Concrete cures under proper moisture and temperature conditions. It’s important to keep the surface damp for several days after placement. Methods include misting, applying a curing agent, or placing plastic over the surface. Protect the concrete from freezing for at least 24 hours after placement.
One 80 lb. bag will yield approximately .60 cubic feet (.016 cu. m). To estimate the number of 80 lb. bags needed for a job, multiply the length x width x depth (all in feet), then divide by .60.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not the same “High-Strength” Concrete Mix that our competition typically carries. This is professional grade, 5000+ psi concrete mix.
