Max Flo P 801 is liquid, plasticizing, water reducing and retarding concrete admixture based on a high-grade Lignosulphonate derivative. Max Flo P 801 is formulated from carefully selected raw material and is manufactured under controlled conditions to give a consistent product.
ASTM C 494 Type B and D, BS EN 934-2
Max Flo P 801 is used to produce easily workable and dense concrete for all types of ready-mixed concrete, tunnels, runways, canals, reservoirs, and marine structure etc. It can also be used as water proofing agent to reduce permeability of concrete.
- Good slump retention even at higher temperatures.
- Good workability improvement to most of concrete mixes.
- 12% – 18% water reduction effect can be obtained.
- Increases strength due to water reduction.
- Pumpable concrete.
- Effective in achieving cement reduction.
- Durable concrete may be achieved.
- Extended setting time at high temperatures.
- Reduced shrinkage and creep.

Typical results under laboratory conditions.
Results may vary as per site and usage conditions
Max Flo P 801 can be used with all types of cements and cementitious materials like fly ash, GGBS, micro silica etc. Max Flo P 801 should not be premixed with other admixtures unless recommended by Ressichem Technician.
Recommended dosage is 0.5% – 1.5% by weight of cementitious material. Higher dosage can be used after verification by conducting lab and site trials. Consult Ressichem Technician for optimum dosage and effect on properties such as strength, setting time, etc.
EFFECT OF OVERDOSING
Overdosing may result in higher workability and delay in setting. If intentionally or accidentally, dosage used is above the recommended dosages, care must be taken to allow for the effect on the stripping time of formwork. In such cases, provided the concrete is properly cured, the ultimate strength will generally be higher than the regular concrete. The effects of overdosing are increased when sulphate resistant cement is used in the concrete mixes because of the chemical nature of the cement as compared to that of OPC.
Available in 1 Liter, 5 Liters, 10 Liters, 15 Liters, 30 Liters and 200 Liters of packaging.
Max Flo P 801 should be dispensed directly 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.
