Need for different products..

"Why so many different products?" Cement products are used in different applications. Some are applied at a
3-4" thickness; some approximately 1-2" and some very thin at only 0-1". The thicker you apply your product the coarser the sand and gravel have to be to hold it together. Example: in concrete we use fine sands but also 3/8" rock because it is used up to 4" in thickness. Although the 3/8" rock stabilizes the mix and reduces cracking at 4" thick, the 3/8" rock does not allow it to trowel thinly. However, in our Bonded Topping Mix we use very fine sand so it can be trowelled to a fine, featheredge. Because there is no rock in Bonded Topping Mix, its application thickness must not be more than 1/2 inch. If applied any thicker, it would crack.
