FLOW Control®

Additive to Increase Strength and Fluidity
PDF

PRODUCT DATASHEET

DESCRIPTION: Rapid Set® FLOW CONTROL® is a flow enhancing additive that allows higher fluidity or lower water requirement. Reducing water content by adding FLOW CONTROL will increase the final strength and durability.

USES: Use FLOW CONTROL with Rapid Set cement products. Add 1 to 4 packets of FLOW CONTROL to increase fluidity, and/or increase strength to satisfy jobsite requirements. A trial batch is recommended to fine-tune the dosage. FLOW CONTROL may be used in combination with all other products of the Rapid Set® Concrete Pharmacy®.

DIRECTIONS: Place desired amount of potable water into mixing container. Add half cement product into mixing container and mix with mechanical drill/mixer. Continue mixing while adding FLOW CONTROL 2.1-oz (60-grams) powder to mixing container. Add remaining cement product into mixing container. Follow product mixing instructions and maximum water requirements described on the package of the cement product. Mix to a workable, lump-free consistency. Do NOT exceed 4 packets per 50-lb to 70-lb bag of Rapid Set branded cement product. Too much water in the mixture may cause aggregate segregation, which can reduce strengths.

SHELF LIFE: FLOW CONTROL has a shelf life of 12 months when stored properly in a dry location, protected from moisture, out of direct sunlight, and in an undamaged package.
