Quick Shot

Quickshot is designed for vertical and overhead concrete repairs. It is lightweight which makes repairs easier to place.

Where to use:

Fast repairs to vertical, overhead, and horizontal concrete above or below grade.

How to apply:

Trowel and Sponge Float. Additional Information

Performance Characteristics

Fast setting
  • Formulated to set quickly to increase productivity.
High build
  • Superior hang for overhead vertical applications.
Low shrinkage
  • Maintains integrity of repair, resists cracking.
Thermal compatibility
  • Prevents delamination due to temperature change.
Durable
  • Resistant to weathering action, excellent freeze/thaw stability and abrasion resistance.
Very low permeability
  • Resistant to deicing salts, carbonation, chloride, and chemical attack.
Single component
  • Easy to batch in less than full bag quantities.

Surface Preparation

  • Remove loose and deteriorated material, laitance, dirt, dust, oil and any surface contaminants that will inhibit proper bond.
  • Saw cut edges with a diamond blade at a 90° angle to eliminate feather edging. Avoid polishing the edges as this will inhibit bond.
  • Avoid bruising or micro cracking during surface preparation. Refer to ICRI Surface Preparation Guide 03732.
  • Repair zone must be a minimum of 1/2 inch deep, of simple geometry, with no complex edge conditions.
  • Avoid long narrow repairs; these have a tendency to crack.
  • Saturate substrate with clean water, (saturated surface dry/SSD), with no standing water during Priming or Application.
  • Remove concrete from corroded steel and several inches beyond to expose non-corroded steel.
  • Provide a 3/4 inch clearance between the concrete and steel.
  • Damaged reinforcing steel should be inspected by a qualified engineer and appropriate action taken.

Priming

Concrete
  • Prime the prepared substrate including all edges with a slurry coat of the repair mortar. Work the slurry into the substrate to ensure intimate contact and establish bond. The repair material must be applied while slurry is wet. If the slurry dries, remove and recoat.
  • Alternatively, use Conpro Primer or ECB as a bonding primer. Refer to the individual product technical data bulletin for information.
Reinforcing Steel
  • Remove all scaling rust from reinforcing steel. Apply ECB anti-corrosion coating.

Mixing

  • Mix only as much material as can be placed in 10-15 minutes.
  • Mechanically mix using a low speed drill (400-600 rpm) and mixing paddle or mortar mixer.
  • Pour slightly less than 1 gallon of potable water into a clean mixing vessel and slowly add all 50 lbs. of material.
  • Substitute 1 quart of K-88 Admix for water for a polymer modified repair mortar.
  •  Mix continuously for 3 minutes to a uniform, lump-free consistency.
  • Add up to 1 cup of additional water if needed.
  • Do not overmix, as this will entrain excess air.
  • For smaller batches, proper mix ratio is 4 ¼ parts powder per 1 part water.

Application

  • At the time of application, surfaces should be saturated surface dry (SSD) but hold no standing water.
  • Follow instructions for Priming.
  • Force the material against the edges of the repair, working toward the center.
  • Material may be applied in multiple lifts of not less than 3/8 inch and up to 4 inches.
  • Consolidate each lift and allow to stiffen to thumb-print hard before continuing.
  • Scratch (cross-hatch) each lift to prepare surface for subsequent lift.
  • Finish with a sponge float or trowel.
  • Do not overwork the finish.
  • For horizontal or supported applications over 2 inches, a maximum of 30 lbs of 3/8 inch aggregate per 50 lb bag may be added to reduce shrinkage and improve yield. Aggregate must be non-reactive, low absorption, graded and high density.

Curing

  • Dampen the repair with a fine mist of water for 24  hours  or  moist cure with wet burlap and polyethylene.
  • Protect repair from direct sunlight, wind, rain and frost during curing period.

Clean Up

  • Clean tools and equipment with water immediately after use.
  • Cured material must be removed mechanically.

Coverage/Yield

  • 0.44 ft³/50 lbs.
  • 0.67 ft³ when extended with 30 lbs. of 3/8 inch aggregate.

Product Handling

Packaging
  • 50 lbs. multi-wall, poly lined bags.
Shelf Life
  • Bag – 12 months when properly stored.
Storage
  • Transport and store in cool, clean, dry conditions in unopened containers.
  • High temperature or high humidity will reduce shelf life.

Limitations

  • Do not apply unless substrate and ambient temperature can be maintained at a minimum of 40°F for 24 hours. Refer to ACI Cold Weather Application Guidelines.
  • Cold mixing water and low temperature will retard set. Hot water and high temperature will accelerate set.
  • Protect application from precipitation and high wind for at least 8 hours.
  • Do not add more water than specified, this will lower strengths and cause shrinkage cracking.
  • Avoid overworking material during placement and finishing – this will produce surface (map) cracking.
  • Surface whitening can occur when polyethylene is in contact with the material during the first 24 hours of curing.

Health and Safety

  • Product is alkaline.
  • Do not ingest.
  • Avoid breathing dust.
  • Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
  • Refer to Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for additional information.

First Aid

  • In case of skin contact, wash thoroughly with soap and water.
  • For eye contact, flush immediately with a high volume of water for at least 15 minutes and contact a medical professional.
  • For respiratory problems, remove person to fresh air.

Disposal

  • Dispose of material in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

Light weight mortars allow the applicator to place more material per lift and are particularly well suited to overhead repairs.

Working from a swing stage is a good example as to when a quick setting repair mortar can be particularly efficient. Quick setting mortars allow the applicator to mix, place, and finish the repair quickly and move to the next repair.  Quick Shot is a fast setting, light weight mortar engineered for vertical and overhead applications when production is an important consideration.       

Quick Shot can be placed in up to 4" lifts and finished with trowel or sponge float within minutes of application.

Projects Showcase

1818 Market Street

Project History

Beneficial Bank Place, located at 1818 Market Street, a high rise 40-story office building, built in 1974, consists of a cast-in-place, reinforced concrete frame façade. It was designed by renowned Philadelphia firm Ewing Cole and has undergone 3 renovations since being built. It stands 500 feet high and starts as a nine level parking garage topped by thirty floors of office space.
Throughout its 40+ year life, 1818 Market Street has undergone multiple renovations due to corroding rebar and spalling. All exposed rebar was treated with Conproco’s ECB, a zinc-based primer and passive barrier coating that is not a bond breaker when applied to the concrete substrate. This single component, water-based product has up to a 5 day open time making for easily application and cleanup on high rise jobs like this. Its orange color makes it even easier to inspect full coverage.
To achieve a faster set on all vertical repair areas, the contractor trowel applied Quick Shot, our fastest setting cementitious repair mortar. ISR Deck Mix was used on all horizontal applications, including long form-and-pour repairs at the parapets.

Council Rock High School

Project History

Entrance canopy issues that had to be addressed included spalling concrete and corroded rebar. ECB was applied to all exposed rebar. Quick Shot was used for overhead patching. Conpro Set was used to parge the columns. Plastermix, modified with K-88 Admix, was used to parge the fascia. All areas were then coated with Color Coat acrylic coating that provides waterproofing and can be used for both overhead and vertical applications.
