LITHOCAST™ Surface Retarder

What is LITHOCAST Surface Retarder:
LITHOCAST Surface Retarder is a liquid, spray-applied surface-set retarder that allows depth control for creating variable-etched concrete surfaces by preventing hydration of the cement on the concrete surface. LITHOCAST Surface Retarder deactivates the surface permanently and requires no polyethylene cover. Available in six formulations:

  • LITHOCAST Surface Retarder 03 - Provides a light Acid Etch finish to the concrete
  • LITHOCAST Surface Retarder 05 - Provides a Sand Blast like surface to the concrete
  • LITHOCAST Surface Retarder 15 - Exposes aggregate up to 1/4" on concrete
  • LITHOCAST Surface Retarder 50 - Exposes between 1/8" and 3/8" of aggregate on concrete
  • LITHOCAST Surface Retarder 100 - Exposes between 3/8" and 1/2" of aggregate on concrete
  • LITHOCAST Surface Retarder 125 - Exposes between 3/8" and 5/8" of aggregate on concrete

    Where to use LITHOCAST Surface Retarder:
