The beauty of Postcrete is that is ready to use straight out of the bag, with no mixing required.
Using Postcrete for Sitework
Here is a simple guide to using Postcrete –
- Dig your hole to the correct depth and width relevant to post size
- Fill the hole with water to a third of the depth
- Pour the mix evenly around the post until no standing water is visible, meaning it completely covers the water surface. Also, sprinkle water on top of the powder.
- Position and level the post as required, with the setting taking place within 5-10 minutes.
- When set, cover the top of the hole with soil or grass
Make sure you do not mix Postcrete with water by hand or machine.
It is packed in new weatherproof packaging and needs to be handled and stored with care as it is a cement-based material. It can be stored, unopened in either indoor or outdoor conditions, with information on the maximum storage located on the bag itself.
Remember, all equipment should be cleaned with water and not flushed down the drain.
Health and Safety Advice
Contact between cement powder and body fluids, such as sweat and eye fluids may cause irritation, dermatitis or burns. Cement is classified as an irritant under the Chemical (Hazard Information and Packaging) Regulations.
