Product Overview

  • Increases strength and fluidity
  • Increases compressive strength
  • For use with Rapid Set Cement® Products
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.
  • Customize your cement mixture
  • Increases strength and fluidity
  • Convenient packets allow for easy control of dosage
  • Easy to use

Questions & Answers

Could this be used with sandmix?

Making countertops with sandmix
Asked by: Justin
I used it with quikrite sand/topping and it worked fine - though I used 1/2 a pack in 2 bags of concrete. It will NOT make it self-leveling though - I used it for a cast wall.

Does this make the cement-all self-leveling?

I'm wondering if this flow control will cause the cement-all product to be more self-leveling. Thanks.
Asked by: Stray
It didn't seem to do that for me, though I used 1/2 a pack per 2 bags of concrete. I would suggest using a product specifically designed to make a pour self-leveling.

Does Rapid Set Flow Control work with Quikrete Sandmix concrete?

Does Rapid Set Flow Control work with Quikrete Sandmix concrete?
Asked by: TAllen
It worked for me - though I used half a packet per 2 bags of concrete. I probably could have used more. I wouldn't recommend using the max 3 or 4 packets per 80lb bag without testing it first.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

The 2.12 oz concrete pharmacy flow control that I received a few weeks ago seems like it would be very easy to use . although I haven"t had a chance to try it out yet. I am probably going to get a chance to try it out in a week or so. I so appreciate you letting me try it. I am really enjoying the seeds program. I am getting to try so many products

I bought a bunch of packets of this to use while pouring cast concrete walls against the stone foundation in my basement (house is from 1923) - using a blend of quikrite sand/topping mix and regular quikrite (too add some aggregate). I did this as an alternative to tuck-pointing/parging/scratch/finish coat at a 2' height from my basement floor - it is a walk-out basement but the part that I did a cast-wall against is under-grade by about 2'. The goal is adding this was to allow the concrete to flow more easily into the voids between the stones - I did chisel, scrap, vacuum and power wash the stones to remove any remaining sand/lime/dirt/soil. Not only did this product help to reduce the amount of water I needed (by about a quart of water per 2 bags of concrete per 1/2 pouch), but it also visibly added a fluidity and viscosity to the pour. I only used a half-pouch per 2 bags because of other reviews concerning the sponge-i-ness after using this product - I feel like I could have used more than that. I did use a hammer-drill against the forms to vibrate the pour as I went - not only did I get a nice finish, but I saw tiny bits of liquid concrete gel escaping from gaps in the forms - something that I've never had with other pours, so I'll attribute that to this product. I had no problems with curing or strength and it was super easy to use. Highly recommended - I'll probably be using it for all my concrete pours in the future as an alternative to a liquid plasticizer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
