Yes use it, it's a lot better than breaking out kerbs in the remedial stage which is very time consuming and expensive. Mark your kerbs  so you remember which ones to head for becsuse it goes off quick. Strong and will stay done if done to instructions.  Have used similar stuff,  epoxy, to repair spigots and collers on concrete pipes before pushing them home.

Although these epoxy mortar patch repairs never look good, they are widely acceptred and, as Sean says, it's hard to justify ripping out whole kerbs because of some scratch or spalling on the face.

The two exceptions would be any kerb that is cracked right through - repair mortar won't fix a crack - and spalling caused by laying kerbs butt-tight against their neighbours. Forcing a contracxtor to replace such damaged kerbs is the only way to teach them to lay close-jointed and not butt-jointed.
