ONE COMPONENT, FLOWABLE, FORM & POUR STRUCTURAL
One component, flowable, shrinkage-compensated,
corrosion inhibitor enhanced, repair mortar for structural applications.
MEADOW-CRETE FNP can be formed and poured or formed and pumped, utilizing a
suitable grout pump.
The product is ideal for the reinstatement or
repair of beams, columns, balcony edges or for partial depth or full depth
placement. MEADOW-CRETE FNP is suitable for industrial, residential and civil

50 LB. (22.7 kg) bag
Yield: 0.39 Cu. Ft.
Yields listed above are based on 3.50 quarts (3.31 liters)
of water per 50 lb. (22.7 kg.) bag and will vary based on substrate profile,
aggregate, variations in mix water amounts and waste/rebound. Field trials
should be performed to determine yields based on job-site conditions.
12 months when stored on pallets in a dry, cool area.

FOR BEST PERFORMANCE
|MEADOW-PATCH FNP is recommended for concrete repairs
|Do not use as an underlayment or overlay.
|Do not apply below 40°F (4°C) or above 90°F (32°C)
or when rain is imminent.
|Protect from freezing for a minimum of 24 hours.
|Do not bridge moving cracks. Extend existing control
and expansion joints through MEADOW-PATCH FNP.
|For large areas with no control, expansion or
construction joints, refer to ACI guidelines.
|Do not add any admixtures.
|Exceeding liquid requirements shall result in reduced
|Realize that set time will decrease as the product,
air, substrate and mixing liquid temperature increases and will be increased
as the temperature decreases.
|Repair areas should be saw cut and slightly undercut to
a minimum depth of a 1/2" (12 mm). Do not featheredge.
|Protect from conditions that may cause early water
loss; windy, low humidity, high temperature and direct sunlight. Early water
loss is exasperated in thin applications.
|Realize that the use of extender aggregate will alter
|Failure to follow industry standard practices may
result in decreased material performance.
|Proper application is the responsibility of the user.

Perform surface preparation in accordance with ICRI Technical Guidelines No.
03730. Mechanically abrade existing substrate to remove all unsound concrete,
but do not use excessive force, which may cause micro-fracturing. Substrate must
be structurally sound and free of any contaminants that will adversely affect
bond. Prepared surface must be dust-free and have a sufficient profile to ensure
adequate mechanical lock. Saw cut perimeter of repair zone to a depth of
¼" to avoid featheredging.
Completely expose all reinforcing steel, ensuring a
minimum clearance of ¾" behind reinforcing steel. Perform reinforcing
steel preparation in accordance with ICRI Technical Guidelines No. 03730.
Pre-soak repair zone prior to application of MEADOW-CRETE
FNP to a saturated, surface dry (SSD) condition and free of standing water.
Mix only complete bags. Using a mortar type mixer, pour 3.00 quarts (2.84
liters) per 50 lb. (22.7 kg) bag. Slowly add MEADOW-CRETE FNP while mixing.
Adjust mix consistency using up to an additional 0.25 Quarts (0.24 L) of water.
Mix for 3-5 minutes or until homogenous and lump-free. Do not over mix.
Support formwork as to ensure a tight seal with repair zone. Formwork should be
rigid, structurally stable, sealed and coated with a suitable release agent
(such as SEALTIGHT DUOGARD). Forming should be accomplished in accordance with
ACI 347-88. Proper vent & drainage ports should be installed as required to
ensure no entrap of air voids. Pre-soak repair zone for 24 hrs. prior to
placement to a saturated, surface dry (SSD) condition.
Pour or pump properly mixed product immediately following proper mixing to
ensure adequate flow. Pumping should be accomplished in accordance with ACI
304-R-85. Do not re-temper or over-work product. Follow ACI 305-R89
"Standard on Hot Weather Concreting" or ACI 306-R88 "Standard on
Cold Weather Concreting," when applicable.
Cure in accordance with ACI 308. Cure MEADOW-CRETE FNP immediately following
removal of forms using a suitable water-based curing compound such as SEALTIGHT
2250-WHITE or SEALTIGHT 1130-CLEAR.
