THE RIGHT TOOL AND EQUIPMENT FOR THE JOB. The intent of this document is not to advocate one type of tool or piece of equipment versus another, or discuss tool/equipment efficiency and other properties, but simply to provide a single-source common guide that can be used in the trade when describing and specifying concrete repair tools and equipment. Specifying tools and equipment for mixing and placing concrete repair materials is extremely difficult because the industry uses multiple names for the same tools/equipment and the same names for different tools/equipment. The Problem: Different types of tools and equipment can produce different consistencies and properties in concrete repair products. The Solution: ICRI Technical Guideline 320.5R-2014 will help ensure that the appropriate tools and equipment are properly described and specified.
