What is the advantage of adding glass fiber in concrete?

Fibers are usually used in concrete to control cracking due to plastic shrinkage and to drying shrinkage. They also reduce the permeability of concrete and thus reduce bleeding of water. Some types of fibers produce greater impact-, abrasion-, and shatter-resistance in concrete. Generally fibers do not increase the flexural strength of concrete, and so cannot replace moment-resisting or structural steel reinforcement. Indeed, some fibers actually reduce the strength of concrete.

Remove stain off concrete

Cat litter or "oil dry", lay it on the stain and grind it in but good with the heel of your shoe, repeat if necessary it'll be cleaner than when you started. If it's really nasty, pour a little gasoline or paint thinner on it first.

I want to strip the concrete floor that I use jasco seal 6 years a go do you have any product I can use .

  • 1 Make sure that the surface of the concrete is cleaned thoroughly. Remove stubborn dirt or stains with a mixture of one part degreasing cleanser and two parts water. Rinse the concrete well and wait 48 hours before continuing.
  • 2 Use a large paintbrush or a long-handled paint roller fitted with a fine-nap roll to coat the entire concrete surface in a thick layer of soy-based or other environmentally-safe chemical stripper. Allow the stripper to eat away at the sealant for 10 minutes, scrape up the peeling sealant with a paint scraper or putty knife. Clean up all of the debris.
  • 3 Rinse concrete to remove all of the stripper. Let the concrete dry 48 hours. Apply the new sealant or the finish of your choice .

    I painted a section of my garage floor with a cup of paint 1/4c oil base acrylic mixed with 3/4 c water base latex...will it ever dry thoroughly? it is drying slowly and is really sticky. will I just have...

    did you ever try to mix water with oil? what was the result? are you sure that you can cross the street without adult holding your hand?

    unfortunately you need to remove all that paint, just drop few shovels of fine sand over, and scrape it... sand will adhere to the tp surface of the pain and will allow you to scrape it. after you scrape it off, use any degreaser or similar product to wash reminder off, leave it for few weeks to dry through and then in small patch try if it would accept latex pain, roll it very, very thinly and leave overnight, if it is dry (solid dry) after 24hrs and do not peel off, you can then use this paint on the rest of your garage floor.

    now, i would advice strongly against painting garage floor with any paint except concrete paint (they are usually water based with strongly alcalic ph), and after that use concrete seal. this should give you long lasting surface, sealed from oils, dust, water and whatever contaminant you can imagine in the garage.
