2 part resins incompatible with concrete??? Answered

While researching patch kits for pebble and resin coating for concrete stairs, one supplier claimed that ONLY their resin would not eat concrete.  

Is it true that some resins will eat the concrete?

Will fiberglass resin work for this?

The pebbles are about 1/8"

As long as the "compound" isn't acidic, I don't think it would "eat:" concrete; if there is acid (for instance; acetic acid) it might attack concrete, albeit slowly.

If a reason is corrosive enough to eat concrete then it can't be of much use on anything else now can it. Some companies will say just about anything to make there product sound better than there competition.

Yeah. I was pretty skeptical of the statement.

Eat concrete??

I'd browse the various concrete projects and see what resins are used on things like kitchen work-tops.
