    Surface Retarders

    Enhance exposed-aggregate concrete finishes

    Surface retarders allow concrete finishers to add decorative architectural finishes to horizontal concrete surfaces, such as exposed aggregate. They can also be used for creating an appropriate bonding surface for other materials or concrete layers. This application can be used to:

    • Enhance finishes in precast/prestressed concrete
    • Enhance finishes in cast-in-place concrete
