Max Flo 4000 is a modified polycarboxylate ether bases superplasticiser having unique carboxylic ether polymer with long lateral chains, it is an effective cement dispersant, fluidifier and high range water reducer as compared to conventional superplasticisers.
ASTM C 494 Type D and G, BS EN 934-2
Max Flo 4000 is specially intended for use in self-compacting concrete, high strength concrete, durable concrete containing GGBS, micro silica, fly ash, etc. it is used in ready-mix concrete where extra ordinary slump retention is required in hot weather conditions. Extremely useful in high fines concrete.
- Produces free flowing concrete without segregation and bleeding.
- High strength concrete with low water content.
- Produces self-compacting concrete without segregation.
- Improves surface finish.
- Improve adhesion to reinforcing and stressing steel.
- Lower permeability, better resistance to carbonation.
- Increase flexural strengths.
- Good slump retention for longer time.
Remarkably superior performance than normal superplasticizer

Typical results under laboratory conditions.
Results may vary as per site and usage conditions.
Max Flo 4000 can be used with all types of cements and cementitious materials like fly ash, GGBS, micro silica etc. it should not be premixed with other admixtures unless recommended by Ressichem Technician.
Recommended dosage is 0.5 – 2.0 % by weight of cementitious material. Higher dosage can be used after verification of performance by conducting lab and site trials. Optimum dosage of Max Flo 4000 and effect on concrete properties such as workability, strength, setting time, etc. are best assessed after preliminary tests on site using the actual material of mixes under consideration for self-compacting concrete, a viscosity enhancer.
EFFECT OF OVERDOSING
Overdosing may result in higher workability and delay in setting. In such cases, provided the concrete is properly cured, the ultimate strength will generally be high than the regular concrete.
Available in 1 Liter, 5 Liters, 10 Liters, 15 Liters, 30 Liters and 200 Liters of packaging.
Max Flo 4000 should be directly dispensed into the concrete mixer together with mixing water.
12 months from the date of manufacture when stored under cool and dry warehouse conditions in original unopened packaging. Extreme temperature and humidity may reduce shelf life.
