sack rub

Definition

Construction

  • A finish for formed concrete surfaces, designed to produce even texture and fill all pits and air holes. (See also bug holes.) After dampening the surface, and before it dries, a mixture of dry cement and sand is rubbed over it with a wad of burlap or a sponge rubber float to remove surplus mortar and fill the voids. See also sack finish.
