FLOTON® PS 2025 SUPER PLASTICIZER-CONCRETE ADMIXTURE

Product description

FLOTON PS 2025 is a polycarboxylate ether based, high water reduction, super plasticizing (improves concrete flow properties) concrete admixture, improved for production of prefabricated concrete of higher early and ultimate strength and resistance, including the factory manufactured pre-cast concrete.

The product conforms to the requirements of the AZS 221-2006 (TS EN 934-2) standard, Tables 3.1 and 3.2: “High water reduction, latest generation super plasticizing (improves concrete flow properties) concrete admixture”, and

ASTM C 494 Type F standard: “High water reduction, latest generation super plasticizing concrete admixture”.

Fields of Application

This concrete admixture can be applied in the following areas:

  • Production of pre-cast and prefabricated concrete
  • Production of concretes achieving high resistance within 18-24 hours and 28 days;
  • Production of rheoplastic concrete with fluid viscosity properties.

Advantages

  • Increases early and ultimate strength of applied concrete, provides ultimate tension, high adhesion to steel, as well as impermeability and hardness compared to conventional super plasticizers (Naphthalene sulfonate based materials – NSM and Melamine sulfonate based materials – MSM);
  • Improves resistance of concrete to liming and chlorine ions, and to aggressive chemical substances, improves mechanical characteristics of concrete when cooling, including compression and tension properties;
  • Production of rheoplastic concrete of low disintegration (separation) risk and spalling risk, which enhances operating parameters at low water/cement ratios compared to admixture-free concrete;
  • Increases the production efficiency;
  • Provides uniform and smooth surfaces of formwork concrete with no disintegration;
    • Does not contain chlorine.


Application procedures

Preparation of the mixture. Mix the mineral adhesives (cement, quartz sand, volcanic cinders, slag) with concrete filler till the mixture is entirely homogeneous. After 50-70% of the total required water amount is added, start to add the FLOTON PS 2025 product together with the remained amount of water to the mixture.  To provide homogeneous composition of FLOTON PS 2025 mixture mix it vigorously during 60 seconds or during time period predefined by the laboratory tests.

Chemical mechanism of super plasticizers reaction. Specific molecular structure of the FLOTON PS 2025 product accelerates hydration of cement. Fast absorption of the FLOTON PS 2025 molecules by cement particles facilitates reaction with water enhancing the cement particle surface area, simultaneously providing effective disintegration. This effect results in early hydration start, and early expanding of cement provides high strength.

Compatibility to other admixtures. FLOTON PS 2025 may be used together with the following materials:

  • All grades of cement;
  • Self-spreading mineral adhesives (quartz sand, volcanic cinders and slag) if required in the cement production process;
  • To increase resistance to freezing and melting temperatures, it may be used together with the AntiAir 250 air entraining admixtures;
  • To prevent water vaporization from mixtures in the concrete composition, and to increase the concrete strength in the areas of hot climate and high air velocity the product may be used together with corresponding moisture-retaining products, like MA Kur 100, MA Kur 200 and MA Kur 300;
  • It is not recommended to use the FLOTON PS 2025 product together with super plasticizers of FLOTON series (based on NSM).

Consumption

It is recommended to add the FLOTON PS 2025 product in proportion of 1.2-1.8% of the cement amount. Depending on the concrete type and characteristics, the actual amount of admixtures should be defined based on the preliminary laboratory tests.

Shelf Life and Storage Method

FLOTON PS 2025 may be stored in original packing in the areas with ambient temperature equal to or above +50C. The product stored in unsuitable conditions and exposed to freezing temperatures should be melted at room temperature without adding water, then it should be mixed using mechanical methods till it is entirely homogeneous. When mixing compressed air should not be used.

Under the required storage conditions, the product may be stored during 12 months from the manufacturing date. The product in open containers may be used during the entire storage period provided the cap is kept closed.

Warnings

  • when using the product observe regulations of operational and personnel safety, wear appropriate protective clothing, safety gloves, glasses, and respirators;
  • taking into consideration that the product can cause allergic reactions and itch, take care to avoid contact of its components with skin or eyes, otherwise immediately rinse them with large amount of water and wash with soap;
  • in case you swallow the product, immediately consult a physician;
  • do not keep food in the areas of the product application;
  • keep the product away from children;
  • do not use the product together with FLOTON series admixtures (based on NSM);
  • mix the fine or coarse concrete fillers with mineral adhesives according to the results of laboratory tests (cement, quartz sand, volcanic cinders, slag) till the mixture is completely homogeneous. In case the admixture is added to the dry mixture without water, it will be absorbed by the mixture and will result in forming irregularities when applied. Even if you add water afterwards to such improper mixture, the required type and characteristics of concrete will not be achieved. In case the water is added to the mixture in larger amounts than it is required, this will unbalance the required design factors of the concrete, and the mechanical features of concrete will be deteriorated. Taking into consideration the mentioned above, the concrete admixtures should not be added directly into dry mixture without water;
  • in case the FLOTON PS 2025 concrete admixture is applied at ambient temperatures below +150C, it is necessary to adjust the amount of cement with regard to other required conditions (temperature and time period);
  • in case the FLOTON PS 2025 product is mixed with admixtures of different categories, the resulting quality will be poorer. On this reason this admixture should be handled with clean tools and devices only.
