Product description

FLOTON 2100 K is a naphthalene sulfonate based, high water reduction, super plasticizing (enhances concrete flow properties) concrete admixture increasing concrete early and ultimate strength, providing rheoplastic features of the concrete. Conformance code: 04.613/1-А3 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 (improving concrete flow properties) concrete admixture”, and ASTM CC 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 concrete designed for application with or without pump;
  • Production of Rheodynamic concrete easily laid in reinforced structures;
  • Pouring of concrete at low temperatures.


  • Reduces amount of water at least by 12% compared to admixture-free concretes;
  • Provides easy pumping and high applicability at lower or the same water/cement ratio and under the same operating conditions compared to admixture-free concrete;
  • Increases early and ultimate strength compared to admixture-free concrete;
  • Provides easier laying in formwork and reinforcement structures compared to admixture-free concrete; Increases impermeability and hardness of concrete, reduces compression and tension and improves other mechanical properties of concrete;
  • Provides easy placement of concrete in reinforced concrete constructions with lower vibration demand;
  • 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. Add 50-70% of the required water amount and then add the FLOTON 2100 K product together with remained amount of water to the mixture.  To provide homogeneous composition of FLOTON 2100 K mixture mix it vigorously during 60 seconds or during time period predefined by the laboratory tests.

Chemical admixtures reaction principleThe admixtures react mainly with adhesives. When the super plasticizer admixture is added to the concrete it is absorbed by the adhesive particles. The adhesive particles are repelled from each other under the effect of electrostatic force. Thus, the smaller amounts of water provide required application conditions of the mixture. The mechanical strength of the concrete increases proportionally to the reduction of water content in the mixture.

Compatibility to other admixtures. FLOTON 2100 K may be used together with the following materials:

  • All grades of cement;
  • Self-flow mineral adhesives (quartz sand, volcanic cinders and slag) if required in the cement production process;
  • To increase resistance to freezing and melting, it may be used together with the AntiAir 250 air entraining admixture;
  • To prevent water vaporization from mixtures in the concrete composition, and to increase the concrete strength in hot climate conditions and in the areas of 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;
  • To increase the concrete viscosity at the construction site the product may be used together with FLOTON 2100 Kconcrete admixture.

It is recommended to add the FLOTON 2100 K product in proportion of 0.8-1.4% of the cement amount. Depending on the concrete type and characteristics, the actual amount of admixture should be defined based on preliminary laboratory tests.

Shelf Life and Storage Method

FLOTON 2100 K should be stored in original packing in the areas with ambient temperatures 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 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.


  • 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 may 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;
  • 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 gets 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 irregularities. Even if you add water afterwards to such improper mixture, the required type and characteristics of the concrete will not be achieved. In case the water is added to the mixture in larger amounts than 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 the dry powder mixture without water;
  • amount of admixture to be added into the mixture composition is calculated as the sum of weights of cement and adhesives (quartz sand, volcanic cinders, slag)  multiplied by the coefficient equal to 0.8-1.4% of the cement amount;

in case the amount of product added exceeds the recommended value, the mixture hardening period may increase. In these cases it is necessary to provide the required longer curing time for concrete hardening in the reinforcement structures.
