Since 1996, RetroPlate has been used on nearly 200 million ft2  across the globe.  It has become a hallmark of excellence, durability, and beauty in a number of industries and facilities.

RetroPlate is a chemically reactive liquid which enhances concrete density and hardness, allowing concrete surfaces to be polished to a high, marble-like sheen.  In conjunction with diamond tools and machinery, and the process of grinding and polishing concrete, it is known as the RetroPlate  Concrete Polishing System.


  1. DENSIFIES: RetroPlate chemically and mechanically locks-up pores at the concrete floor’s surface. This densification process aids in inhibiting the penetration of water, oils and other contaminants.

  2. ABRASION RESISTANCE: A RetroPlate floor increases the abrasion resistance of a normal concrete floor by up to 400% (ASTM C779). As a concrete surface treatment, RetroPlate provides the greatest increase in strength at the top of the floor and allows for unmatched abrasion resistance throughout.

  3. DUSTPROOFS: The RetroPlate densification process closes off the surface of the floor and locks-in concrete salts, keeping the surface from dusting. 

  4. GREEN PRODUCT: RetroPlate floors are Green! RetroPlate is – pure and simple – a modified sodium silicate which reacts with the calcium hydroxide (free lime) in the cement component of concrete. In utilizing RetroPlate, customers are taking safe, naturally occurring materials to enhance the strength of their concrete floors.

  5. Marble-Like Shine / Increased Light Reflectivity: As a result of the polished shine, some RetroPlate floors have proven to reduce lighting costs by 1/3 due to it’s light reflective properties.

  6. REDUCED MAINTENANCE: By creating a smooth, dust-free surface, maintenance is reduced dramatically, and tire marks are completely eliminated. Many companies around the world have had their maintenance costs for labor and cleaning products reduced.
