Concrete countertops and statuary have grown in popularity over the years because they can be manufactured with both elegance and durability. Unfortunately, if the concrete mix is not designed with the right specifications, it can ruin the aesthetic and the strength of the final piece. That’s why Fritz-Pak created Counter Flo, a unique concrete countertop admixture formulated to improve the concrete to meet the requirements for these types of mixes.
Counter Flo is a mixture of water reducers and minerals that create a more flowing concrete without the addition of water. This allows for easier placement in the molds and prevents voids and weak places in the concrete. Additionally, adding Counter-Flo to your concrete mix reduces the permeability of the mix, which lowers the risk of staining. Finally, as a concrete countertop admixture, Counter-Flo lowers the air content of the mix to help provide an even finishing pattern on the countertop.
Fritz-Pak’s concrete countertop admixture comes packaged differently than our other products. For ease of use by contractors, Counter-Flo is packaged in an eight-pound, resealable jar with a two-ounce scoop. When adding Counter-Flo to pre-bagged concrete, use one level scoop per every 80-pound bag. If you’re adding the product to the concrete at the job site, use one level scoop per every 20 pounds of cement in the mix.

Counter-Flo is compatible with most concrete and cement admixtures. If adding other admixtures, they should be added separately into the mix. Testing of compatibility with other admixtures is required prior to production use. Counter-Flo does not contain calcium chloride, nitrates or other potentially corrosive materials.
