Product Overview

Rapid Set FLOW Control has two functions. First, adding FLOW Control to your mix will significantly increase the fluidity of the mixture. Second, FLOW Control increases the strength and reduces the shrinkage of your mixture when you use the FLOW Control as a replacement for mixing water. When using FLOW Control, the same working consistency (or slump) may be produced with approximately 20 percent to 40 percent less mixing water. Use enough FLOW Control to achieve desired properties for your mix. Do not exceed 5 packets per 50 to 60 lb. bag of Rapid Set cement product. FLOW Control is designed for use with Rapid Set cement products and most other packaged hydraulic cements.

Answer: 
Yes, it's a plasticizer - it boosts fluidity without requiring added water. However I don't know what the chemistry of the product is. I'd be very interested myself in finding out.

I'm wondering if this flow control will cause the cement-all product to be more self-leveling. Thanks.

Answer: 
The flow control does not make the Cement All a self leveling product, it does however liquefy the material in order to give you a pourable consistency without adding additional water.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for leveling floors Great stuff to add to rapid set to self level your floors August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes Rapid Set Products Flow First off, this is only designed to work with Rapid Set Products. There are a ton of manufacturers and admixes in today's world, but this does not mean they will all play together well. So if you are mixing your own secret receipe of concrete, I would not use this, but if using a Rapid Set Product then 100% it works great. The more water you add to a cement based product the weaker the final product becomes. So when you have an application that you need it to flow or need to be able to ensure it gets into ever nook and cranny or a mold, or into small gaps, instead of adding more water (which only weakens the mix), add one of these, or up to four packets for each 50lb bag of Cement All, or which ever Rapid Set product you are using. If you have never used a product like this, it really is amazing how this little packet of white powder will suddenly turn your thick mix into a smooth, flow-able one. Just sprinkle it in, and continue to mix like normal. In a matter of seconds, your mix will transform. Very Cool! Cheers! June 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Certainly boosts fluidity, but retards set I ran out of my usual plasticizer (Riteks 7000 polycarboxylate) that I use for self-leveling microtopping so I picked this up. I works well enough and boosts fluidity but not as well as Riteks. However as I write this it's been 24 hours and I've only got a very soft set - like jello and I'm very concerned. Usually by now I can stand on it, this time my foot sank in. I used 4 bags mixed in with two 80lb bags of sackrete 3-1 sand mix + 6 quarts of portland cement + 2 gallons of 50/50 acrylic fortifier/water + 14 ounces of liquid latex + 4oz (by volume) fiberglass fibers. I added another ~gallon of water during the mix. The flow control must contain a set retarder, or it reacted badly to the acrylic&latex admix. I'll update after a day or so. September 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes Concrete Flooooooow I used this product with Rapidset concrete for use in a semi-complex concrete mold. I had never worked with mixing concrete before and my first attempt did not turn out well (I think I had too much water). My second attempt turned out very good. This flow control powder helped the concrete flow into the mold cavities well and I had minimal bubbles/voids in my finished product. August 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT ADDITION If you need a smooth flush surface from Rapid Set concrete add this as per the directions and you can not go wrong! August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this stuff excellent product to achieve a smooth and pourable mixture that has less water which equates to higher strength. mix rapid set cement to thick milkshake consistency, then sprinkle in flow control to desired consistency. it's really cool to watch the thick cement mixture turn watery with just a little bit of powder.
