FlexCrete is a two-part system consisting of a unique polymer liquid and a composite compound of dry materials that when mixed properly creates FlexCrete a specialized micro-topping material that is highly adhesive, waterproof and flexible.
FlexCrete Polymer was invented by us in 2010 and we are proud to be the first cementitious waterproofing product on the market. Since then, we have made continuous improvements to our formula and manufacturing processes which are unique and trade secret. Our polymer undergoes a rigorous quality control process which qualifies it as an approved product for use in the Hurricane area of Miami-Dade County under NOA # 17-1206.1 Exp. 05/17/23. Used and trusted by experts worldwide, FlexCrete Polymer is simply the best cementitious water-proofing overlay available and comes as part of 10lb and 25lb do it your self kits, 1 gallon and 5 gallon pails.
FlexCrete Compound is a highly specialized blend of aggregates, cements, graded sands and proprietory additives that enhance the qualities of FlexCreter polymer. It is available as part of 10lb and 25lb kits as well as 50lb bags for larger areas.

In all cases the surface shall be clean and free from anything that would inhibit the bonding capacity of the Flexcrete Waterproofing System. Surface must be structurally sound and free of any bond breaking materials. All cracks, spalls, voids shall be repaired prior to application.
All materials should be kept out of the sun and heat. This excessive heat will accelerate the hydration or setting process. To extend the pot life of the material fill a garbage can or vessel larger than the five gallon bucket diameter with ice and water. Place the mixing fluid in the container prior to using and keep in container while work progresses. This will extend pot life 20-30 minutes. At 70 degrees F. The pot life is approximately 30 minutes.
These are theoretical coverage’s. Field conditions predicate actual consumption rate. A minimum of 1/8” is required to create a waterproof condition.
FlexCrete Repair kits are available in two sizes small (10 lbs) and large (25 lbs). The small repair kit will cover approximately 10 square feet and the Large Repair Kit will cover approximately 25 square feet at ¼” (0.6 cm) thickness.
Application is usually by brushing on two thin coats if you want a waterproof barrier. Mix FlexCrete to a thin consistency much like thin pancake batter, following the instructions included in the kit. Brush Flexcrete into the surface in one direction being sure to seal all pinholes! Allow to dry at least 4 hours depending on temperature and humidity. Apply second coat brushing in a perpendicular direction. You can apply the remainder as below.
For thicker applications, you can apply FlexCrete on horizontal surfaces up to 4”. Mix to a thick pancake batter consistency and allow to dry 24 hours per inch (2.54 cm) of thickness.
