DESCRIPTIONS: enFLOW is a ready to use high range water reducing admixture specifically developed for enCOUNTER®, the professional concrete countertop system, for use in concrete countertops, concrete sinks and thin wall panels. enFLOW delivers flowability and high strengths without the retarding and foaming issues associated with many slump modifiers. enFLOW has been formulated to enhance the already high performance characteristics of enCOUNTER®, the professional concrete countertop mix, by increasing flow characteristics for use with double sided concrete sink molds such as the enSINK reusable sink molds and one time use enSINK molds and thin wall panels. enFLOW does not contain any added chlorides or chemicals known to promote corrosion of steel or known to contribute to the growth of bacteria in kitchen or bathroom environments.
PRIMARY APPLICATIONS: Double molded concrete sinks, high performance concrete, self consolidating concrete, precast/prestressed concrete, thin wall panels, low water/cement ratio concrete, and high early strength applications.
FEATURED BENEFITS: Improved appearance with SCC mixes such as enCOUNTER® or even lesser performing concrete mixes, higher strengths at all ages, maximized efficiency for slump or flow increase, and efficient use of labor, materials and equipment.
enFLOW is perfect for double molded concrete sinks, high performance concrete, self consolidating concrete, precast/prestressed concrete, thin wall panels, low water/cement ratio concrete, and high early strength applications.
MIXING: Typical doses are from .25 oz. to 2 oz. of enFLOW for each 50 lb. bag of enCOUNTER when casting into sink molds. A typical formula may be 68 oz. of water and 1 oz. of enFLOW per bag of enCOUNTER. This represents a 20% water reduction from the normal 85 oz. of water per bag enCOUNTER. You will notice little or no segregation at this rate. Using enFLOW will mean using less water to achieve desired flow characteristics. Run trial batches to determine the appropriate ratios for your particular casting application. enFLOW is especially helpful when casting sinks or wall panels as the enhance flowability results in smooth castings and strength is increased for thin wall pieces. (See Tech Data Sheet for Thin Wall Technology) Run trial batches to determine the appropriate ratios of water and enFLOW for your particular casting application. NOTE: Fritz-Pak NCA (Non-Chloride Accelerator) may be used with enFLOW at a rate of one half to two 5.6 oz. bags of NCA to each bag of enCOUNTER for faster demolding of the sink molds. Please chart all pertinent data: time; temperature; and all admixtures to establish protocol. LIMITATIONS: Use of enFLOW will create difficulty in hand finishing exposed surface. Please note: It is always recommended to test the product in a small, inconspicuous area (on the same concrete substrate) for desired results prior to application. Coverage rates may vary for all coatings and substrates depending on porosity, density, texture etc.
