Q-coat Surface Retarder
What is Q-coat Surface Retarder?
Q-coat Surface Retarder will cause retardation to the surface of the newly laid concrete, resulting in an exposed aggregate finish. This product is a specialised liquid surface retarder used in warmer months.
Where to use Q-coat Surface Retarder
Q-coat Surface Retarder can be used on:
- Patio Slabs
- Architectural concrete
What does Q-coat Surface Retarder do?
The retarding compound in Q-coat Surface Retarder combines with cement at the surface and delays the usual hydration on the surface of the concrete (high cement contents and temperatures reduce the retardation). After retardation has finished, the concrete cures to its full strength.
