Cracks up to 1/4" can be filled by using Sikaflex 1a caulk(available at Homer Improvement stores) up to right below surface. Allow to cure per manufacturer instructions. Apply coat of Liquid membrane and let dry approximately 45-60 minutes and apply second coat apply additional coat if needed to get flush with floor. For cracks larger than 1/4", rout out and loose debris, mix Liquid Membrane in a 1 part to 7 part sand ratio, this is an approximate ratio, the goal is to make a loose grout type of mixture. Coat each side of the crack the width of the reinforcement fabric with a very thin layer of the nonsanded membrane so that the membrane will be adhered to the substrate. Trowel in the sanded mixture to just below surface and and then embed layer of reinforcement fabric with the serrated edge of a rectangle trowel until membrane protrudes up through fabric and then smoothen the membrane with flat side of trowel. Allow to dry in about an hour or so and apply a second coat of membrane to fully encapsulate the membrane.
Once floor is fully prepped apply a coating of Liquid Membrane with 1/2" nap roller at the coverage rate of 400sf per gallon do not apply thicker. Thicker applications can cause product not to cure. Two coats are required for above grade applications. Allow first coat to dry for approximately 1 hr, coating should be dry to the touch and not leave any fingerprints. After final coat inspect for any pinholes, bubbles or other defects, repair by applying some additional Liquid Membrane. Three coats are required for below grade and submerged applications. For above grade applications full cure is in 2-5 days and for below grade or submerged applications you must allow 7 days for full cure before back filling or filling with water.
