EXPOSE IT! Form Retarders

A high abrasion, heat resistant, one coat retarder for producing beautiful exposed aggregate finishes.

Description
As the concrete cures, the retarder temporarily stops the set of concrete at the surface. The next day the retarded concrete is washed or brushed away. Because of the controlled penetration depth of the retarder, concrete below the surface is able to cure normally.

Advantages

• Single coat application
• Applies at a rate of 350 - 400 square feet per gallon
• VOC compliant
• No undercoat transfer agent needed
• Tough film allows for excellent abrasion resistance
• Excellent heat resistance withstands very high temperatures.
• Can be used on steel, wood, fiberglass and concrete foam forms
• Available in 9 different depths of etch
• Convenient 5-gallon pail

EXPOSE IT! Form Retarders

Description
Expose It! FC is a water-based retarder for exposed aggregate concrete. Expose It! FC is an easy-to-use and economical method for producing exposed aggregate concrete with consistent results. This material's thicker viscosity makes it ideal for face up ribbed panels where a thin or runny retarder would not be tolerated.

Advantages

• Easy to use.
• Costs just pennies per square foot.
• Environmentally safe, water based formulation.
• Color-coded blue for ease of application.

Preparation
Mix material thoroughly before using.
