How do I join 2 pieces of a concrete driveway ramp?

A corner of my concrete driveway ramp about 250x170mm has broken away.  I have seen someone suggest that Bondcrete will satisfactorily join the two pieces; others recommend Liquid Nails.

 

Any advice?

Hi Alan (@ProfHenry),

 

Bondcrete is an additive to help adhesion but won't do much on its own, and Liquid nails is great at glueing items, but it's not designed for filling. Instead of these products, I recommend you use Timbermate Concremate Expanding Cement. I think you'll find it will do a much better job at filling the gap and providing a smooth transition between the two areas.

 

Please let me know if you need further assistance or have questions.

Thanks again, Mitchell.

 

I'd hoped the 2 pieces would re-engage reasonably well but there will also need to be some gaps filled – I'll go down the path you've recommended.

 

cheers
