Default Re: Parge recipe

In your case, the parging is to fill the voids in the concrete.

Just about anything will do. I'd use a 1:1 mix mortar sand to portland cement. Mix it up fairly sloppy and force as much of it into the voids as you can.

One to one is not a good ratio for rubbing or parging. The purpose of the portland cement is to coat the aggregate, not provide body. At a 1:1 ratio, shrinkage cracking and dusting will happen and the mix will not achieve sufficient strength to resist freeze/thaw. You are making a slurry at 1:1 which is used as a bonding agent (while uncured) between layers of old and fresh properly mixed mortar, stucco, or concrete.

The addition of lime in the mix gives it more elasticity when dry and also creates a stickier mix which helps application. Be careful lime is hard on your skin, wear rubber gloves. If applying a number of coats it is recommended to increase the lime content for each subsequent coat. I use a 4:1:1 sand, cement, lime mix with two kinds of fibers added for strength.

Thanks everyone. I'll weigh my options carefully.

"One to one is not a good ratio for rubbing or parging. ."

I agree, but in kebwi's case, he wants to fill voids left from the original concrete pour. Here is a photo of his slab.

It doesn't matter. At a 1:1 ratio, there is not enough aggregate. The paste will remain soft and chalky and act as a bond breaker for any subsequent application of material.
