• Dissolve Rapid Set® SET CONTROL® into the mixing water
• Add up to 4 packets as needed to achieve the desired working time
• Each packet is designed to add 15 to 30 minutes of working time to each 50 lb (22.7 KG) to 70 lb (31.8 KG) bag of Rapid Set® product

1. DESCRIPTION

Rapid Set® SET CONTROL® is a retarding admixture that extends the working time when placing and finishing Rapid Set products.

2. USES

Use SET CONTROL with Rapid Set cement products ONLY. SET CONTROL is ideal when additional working time is needed or to compensate for warm temperatures. One packet of SET CONTROL will extend the initial working time by approximately 10 to 20 minutes in normal conditions and does not reduce the long-term strength. SET CONTROL may be used in combination with other Rapid Set® Concrete Pharmacy® admixtures.

3. HIGHLIGHTS

• For use with Rapid Set® cement products
• Extends working time

4. PROCEDURES

Dissolve SET CONTROL into the mixing water. Use 1 to 4 packets per 50-lb to 70-lb bag of Rapid Set cement products to achieve the desired working time. A trial batch is recommended to fine-tune the working time to match job-site conditions.

5. SHELF LIFE

SET CONTROL has a shelf life of 12 months when stored properly in a dry location, protected from moisture, out of direct sunlight, and in an undamaged packet.

6. USER RESPONSIBILITY
