Transitions are proud to announce they are now certified installers of Retro Plate.
RetroPlate 99 is a chemically reactive concrete stabilizer which enhances concrete density and hardness, allowing the concrete to be finished to a high cosmetic, marble like sheen. It is used in conjunction with the RetroPlate® Concrete Polishing System for select floors in which:
- The floor is deteriorating and dusting.
- The concrete surface is dull, rough, pitted or raw looking.
- Overlays, toppings or expensive recoating is required.
- A marble like, hard shell, maintenance free finish is desired.
In addition to bare concrete, RetroPlate 99 works successfully with integral color, acid stains, dyes, dry shake hardener and cementitious terrazzo.
RetroPlate 99 and the RetroPlate® Concrete Polishing System, provides a functional solution to floor problems, as well as being architecturally and design ambitious. Colored aggregate, recycled glass, and other decorative material can be added into the surface to be exposed during the grinding process. The unique ability of the RetroPlate® System to combine the architectural, artistic nature of design with the function and permanence of the best hardener in the business allows for unlimited possibilities for floor design.
In combination with the RetroPlate® Concrete Polishing System, RetroPlate 99 allows for a selection of three floor finishes:
Level 1 Hard-Shell, Satin finish (400 grit)
Level 2 Hard-Shell, Medium Sheen finish (800 grit)
Level 3 Light Reflective Mirror finish (1800 grit)
Each level provides an extremely pleasing, durable, water repellant, dustproofed, marble-like surface. Over time, RetroPlate 99 also increases in penetration resistance. RetroPlate 99 provides a hardened, durable, and dense concrete surface when applied after smoothing and honing of the rough, pitted concrete or removal of soft, carbonated concrete surfaces prior to Level 1, 2, or 3 finishing.
Different levels of grinding can be light to heavy depending on the desired level of exposed aggregate:
Cream No exposed aggregate.
Salt and Pepper Exposed sand and small aggregate.
Heavy Aggregate ¼ - ½” exposed aggregate.
