The GFRC Blended Mix from Buddy Rhodes Concrete Products is truly a “just add water” bag. It contains exactly the right proportions of white cement, graded silica sand and dry polymer, plus pozzolans and high performance admixtures. The total cementitious content is 26.0 lbs.

For mist coat, simply add 8.3 lbs of water. For backer coat, add 8.3 lbs of water and 1.8 lb of AR glass fibers. Using 8.3 lbs of water results in a water/cement ratio of 0.32. Pigments and superplasticizer should be added as necessary to achieve the desired color and consistency.

Two factors are very important to success in working with this mix:

  • Pre-dosing a superplasticizer
  • Waiting for false set to occur

Proportioning:

  • 1 12-lb bag of AR glass fibers

  • Makes about 48 sq ft of 1/8″ thick mist coat and 3/4″ thick backer
  • We also recommend Bone Paste Plus, which is a just add water mix for making grout/slurry to fill in pinholes and voids.
