DESCRIPTION: Rapid Set® SET CONTROL® is a retarding admixture that extends the working time when placing and finishing Rapid Set products.
USES: Use SET CONTROL with Rapid Set cement products ONLY. SET CONTROL is ideal when additional working time is needed or to compensate for warm temperatures. One packet of SET CONTROL will extend the initial working time by approximately 10 to 20 minutes in normal conditions and does not reduce the long-term strength. SET CONTROL may be used in combination with other Rapid Set® Concrete Pharmacy® admixtures.
DIRECTIONS: Dissolve SET CONTROL into the mixing water. Use 1 to 4 packets per 50-lb to 70-lb bag of Rapid Set cement products to achieve the desired working time. A trial batch is recommended to fine-tune the working time to match job-site conditions.
Bulk Use: 35-lb pails of SET CONTROL are also available for concrete mix designs. SET CONTROL is recommended for use at a dosage of 0.1 to 1 lb/cwt (45 to 450 grams/cwt) of cementitious materials for most concrete mixes. For high temperatures, dosages slightly higher than the recommended range may be required. SET CONTROL can also be pre-mixed with water to create a liquid admixture. Please contact a Rapid Set® Engineering Sales Representative for more specific dosage guidelines and recommendation.
SHELF LIFE: SET 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 packet.
