The RetroPlate System® is Green and our customers and their customers care about that! RetroPlate® is, pure and simple, a modified sodium silicate that interatcts with the calcium hydroxide (free lime) in the cement component of concrete. In utilizing RetroPlate, you and your customers are taking safe, naturally occurring materials to enhance the strength of the concrete.
The RetroPlate System increases the abrasion resistance of a floor by up to 400% (ASTM C779). As a surface treatment, RetroPlate provides the greatest increase in strength at the top of the floor and allows for unmatched abrasion resistance throughout.
INCREASES FLOOR HARDNESS
Independent testing has proven that the RetroPlate System increases a floor’s impact resistance by up to 21% (ASTM C805).
With the RetroPlate System, three levels of shine are provided. Level A is a matte finish, providing a light shine, which increases over time with traffic and regular scrubbing. Level B is a high gloss shine with a good degree of reflectivity. Level C is a marble-like shine, increasing the reflectivity by at least 30%. Each level provides ease of maintenance and will increase the floor’s resistance to scratching or wear.
SEALED FLOOR SURFACE
The RetroPlate System chemically and mechanically locks up pores at the surface of your floor. This densification process inhibits the penetration of water, oils and other contaminants.
The RetroPlate densification process closes off the surface of the floor and locks in concrete salts, keeping the surface from dusting. This dramatically reduces maintenance costs by keeping equipment, machinery, and finished manufactured products free of concrete dust.
EASE OF MAINTENANCE
By creating a smooth, dust-free surface, maintenance is reduced dramatically, and tire marks are completely eliminated. Join many companies around the world whose maintenance costs for labor and cleaning products have been reduced by up to 90%.
A RetroPlate floor has no adverse effects from ultraviolet light or water spray (ASTMG23-81). The RetroPlate System creates a durable floor that withstands traffic, abrasion, and daily abuse.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY FEATURES
The RetroPlate System removes dangerous joint slippage. Although imparting a beautiful shine, RetroPlate does not create a slippery floor. The RetroPlate System is environmentally safe.
UNLIMITED DECORATIVE COMBINATION
The RetroPlate Concrete Polishing System provides a functional solution to floor problems, as well as being architecturally and design ambitious.
The unique ability of the RetroPlate System to combine the architectural, artistic nature of design with function and permanence of the best hardener in the business allows for unlimited possibilities for floor design.
