KCB and MATT met the construction schedule and completed the project on time using Cement All and Mortar Mix. Corrosion Inhibitor was used to enhance the durability of the metal embedded reinforcement against corrosion.
Acrylic Primer, Cement All, Concrete Resurfacer, LevelFlor, SET Control and WunderFixx were used in various areas of the completed facility to mitigate standing water and create sanitary, level surfaces.
Cement All and Mortar Mix were used for structural repairs on the 850,000-square-foot beverage manufacturing and distribution hub. WunderFixx was then used to smooth the surfacers before paint was applied.
Fast-setting cement products were used for partial-depth repairs, repairing the lateral barriers, and anchoring and the new pipes for the new floor drains. Work took place in temperatures soaring above 90° degrees Fahrenheit. Products used were DOT Repair Mix, V/O Repair Mix, WunderFixx, Cement All, CR Concrete Resurfacer, and Corrosion Inhibitor.

All cement and concrete products used in this project had to meet State of Arizona specifications and requirements. Cement All, Mortar Mix and Mortar Mix Plus were used for horizontal and vertical repairs. WunderFixx was used to smooth out the repaired surfaces. Because temperatures ranged from 108° to 120°F, the crew used hot-weather concrete techniques.
The campus parking structure was in dire need of structural repairs.

Products used include Mortar Mix and WunderFixx.
Unlike portland cement-based patching compounds that can take weeks to cure, these products are based on rapid-setting hydraulic cement that cures very quickly and has a low pH, so it can be painted the same day. While initially developed for tilt-up, the patching compound can also be used on precast and for cast-in-place concrete. Product used was WunderFixx.
The historic restoration project includes converting the 1915 concrete-and-brick office building into 300 apartments, 10,000 square feet of retail space, and a 500-space parking garage. Products used include Mortar Mix, V/O Repair Mix, and WunderFixx.
With concrete construction and repair, use of fast-setting cementitious materials is often the best way to ensure crews can work around the weather and traffic challenges. The key to success often is in specifying rapid-hardening, durable cement products that are easy to mix and place. Products used include CR Concrete Resurfacer, Corrosion Inhibitor, DOT Repair Mix, V/O Repair Mix, and WunderFixx.
Owners were demanding a smooth appearance comparable with drywall finishing. Sackers tried conventional drywall mud, but it is not formulated for exterior applications, and would swell and pop off when it got damp. Portland cement alone would not adhere to the concrete reliably. In the early 2000s, CTS began developing a material to address this problem. Product developed was WunderFixx.
