Silkon Flowmix PC 550
Silkon Flowmix PC550 is an Advanced Low Viscosity High Performance Superplasticizer, based on Poly carboxylic technology this is a unique combination of the latest generation superplasticizers, based on a Poly carboxylic ether polymer with long lateral chains VMA and Rheology modifier inbuilt, this greatly improves cement dispersion. At the start of the mixing process an electrostatic dispersion occurs but the cement particle’s capacity to separate and disperse. This mechanism considerably reduces the water demand in flowable concrete. Silkon Flowmix PC 550 combines the properties of water reduction and workability retention. It allows the production of high- performance concrete and/or concrete with high workability.
Uses & Advantages
Silkon Flowmix PC550 is a high performance superplasticizer intended for applications where high-water reduction and long workability retention are required, and it has been developed for use in:
- Pumped concrete and Value-added concrete
- Concrete requiring long workability retention
- High performance concrete up to M200 Grade concert
- Low viscosity suitable for pumping of different grades of concrete to higher floors
- Higher E modulus
- Improved adhesion to reinforcing and pre-stressing steel
- Better resistance to carbonation
- Lower permeability
- Better resistance to aggressive atmospheric conditions
- Reduced shrinkage and creep
- Increased durability
Silkon Flowmix PC550 complies with IS:9103- 1999 (2007). It also complies with ASTM C494 Type G depending on the dosage used

The optimum dosage of Silkon Flowmix PC550 to meet specific requirements should always be determined by trials using the materials and conditions that will be experienced in use. The normal dosage range is between 0.3 to 3.0 liters/100 kg of cementitious material.
Effects of Overdosing
Dosage outside the normal range quoted above can be used to meet particular mix requirements. Overdosage may cause delay in the setting time and segregation. Contact Brij Additives for advice in these cases.
Silkon Flowmix PC550 is available in 250kg drums and bulk tanker.
Silkon Flowmix PC550 has a minimum shelf life of 12 months provided the temperature is kept within the range of 2° C to 50° C. Should the temperature of the product fall outside this range then contact local Brij Additives office for advice.
