I am trying to do a similar repair to a trip hazard and cannot allocate these products - Ultrabond 2100 and Miracle Bond 1310? Does anyone know what suitable replacement products could be used instead?

Re: How To Repair a Trip Hazard

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @FrankieL. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.

 

If the trip hazard is less than 25mm at the highest point Lanko 5kg 136 Rapid Patching Mortar would be a suitable product to use. If the trip hazard is higher than 25mm you can use a combination of Lanko 5kg 189 Bulk Fill Screed to fill and then taper it into the adjoining slab with the 136. Lanko 189 must be laid at a minimum thickness of 10mm and needs Lanko 1L 124 Surface Primer to ensure a great bond.

 

When applying the Lanko 136 onto the existing concrete or over Lanko 189 you need to ensure the area is clean from contaminants and you'll need to soak the area with water before commencing.

 

With Lanko products and likewise the products in the video if the slab is still in the process of shifting they will crack and separate. You can certainly patch these cracks once the slab has stopped shifting though.

 

Please let me know if you require further advice or had any questions on the process.
