Product description

FLOTON 2161 is naphthalene sulfonate based, high water reduction, super plasticizing (improves concrete flow properties) concrete admixture which improves early and ultimate strength of concrete and provides 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 (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 may be applied in the following areas:

  • Production of concrete designed for application with or without pumps;
  • Production of pre-cast and prefabricated concrete (factory manufactured concrete);
  • Production of Rheodynamic concretes easily laid in reinforcement structures;
  • Production of prestressed concrete with low water/cement ratios.


  • Reduces amount of water at least by 12% compared to admixture-free concrete;
  • Provides easy pumping and high application quality at lower or the same water/cement ratios and in the same operating conditions compared to admixture-free concrete;
  • Increases strength at early and final stages compared to admixture-free concrete;
  • Increases compression and flexural strength compared to admixture-free concrete;
  • Reduces the period of formwork disassembly compared to admixture-free concrete;
  • Increases the resistance to erosion due to reduced separation and sweating features;
  • Increases strength of concrete in case of freezing and melting;
  • Provides easy flow within formwork compared to admixture-free concrete;
  • Increases impermeability and hardness of the concrete, reduces compression and tension and improves other mechanical properties of the concrete;
  • Provides easy placement of concrete in reinforcement concrete constructions and requires lower levels of vibration;
  • Does not contain chlorine.

Application procedures

Preparation of the mixture. Mix the mineral adhesives (cement, quartz sand, volcanic cinders, slag) with concrete filler until the mixture is entirely homogeneous. After 50-70% of the required water amount is added, start to add the FLOTON 2161 product together with the remained amount of water to the mixture.  To provide homogeneous composition of FLOTON 2161 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 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 the required application conditions. The concrete mechanical strength is increased proportionally to the reduction of water amount in the mixture.

Compatibility to other admixtures. FLOTON 2161 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 the mixtures in the concrete composition, and to increase the concrete strength in the areas of hot climate and high air velocities the product may be used together with corresponding moisture-retaining products, likeMA Kur 100, MA Kur 200 and MA Kur 300;

Shelf Life and Storage Method

FLOTON 2161 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 that 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 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;
  • 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;
  • 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.
