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 4 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.
  • Customize your cement mixture
  • Increases strength and fluidity
  • Convenient packets allow for easy control of dosage
  • Use to achieve a fluid consistency for casting
  • Easy to use

Yes. I used them together in a mold to make my bathroom countertop. I suggest you use the green packet as well (I cant remember the name) it slows down the hardening of the product. There were 2 of us working on the slab and the first batch was dry before the second batch was put on.

The first time I used this it set in about five minutes, leaving most of the product still in the mixing container. The second time, I actually followed the directions. I think it was still a one hour cure, but the product was much easier to use.

This product definitely helps with motar mix. Makes it so much easier to mix and pour. I made concrete counter tops and they were solid and smooth. The only complaint I have is Home Depot doesn’t keep their inventory up with it bc they are out of it more than having it in stock. The product deserves 5 stars regardless.

2.12 OZ. CONCRETE PHARMACY FLOW CONTROL is good staff for any concrete work which flow need to be controlled. The direction for the use is provided in the package and is easy to use for self mixed concrete. But always have to be carefully about the water. The staff is good but uses is limited. It's reduced to spreading the concrete during the concreting work and make the concrete workable and reduce working time.

I used the flow control to make the Rapid Set into a leveling cement. I had to level out the remaining portion of a front entry that I had jack hammered the steps off. I added approx 1.5 bags to each portion i mixed - so maybe 6 flow controls for the bag. It made the cement pour (and flow) although it did not perfectly self level I just had to help it find the low spots. The tile went down good on top of this leveled cement. Now I want to use this to make a modern cement counter when my remodel reaches the kitchen. One caution -- use rubber gloves and a dust mask for Rapid Set, it burns.
