RetroPel has been formulated with advanced, water-based fluoropolymers to protect against tough oil and water-based stains. The small molecular structure of RetroPel allows for maxium penetration and provides coverage rates higher than many other sealers. The product is not a topical sealer, but rather, a penetrating sealer that fills the microscopic gaps that occur in the floor’s crystalline structure, and does not change the appearance of concrete or terrazzo. As with all sealers, both penetration and topical, the benefit of the RetroPel is to provide a window of opportunity to clean-up spills before they can penetrate the floor. NOTE: Spills must still be cleaned on a regular basis.

Specifically Formulated to Clean Concrete Floors
Contains unique ingredients that act specifically on concrete surfaces without harming them, unlike conventional cleaners which contain sulfates, hydroxides, and acids.
Can also be used to clean untreated concrete surfaces and all hard floor surfaces (not natural wood).
Chemically Attracts and Suspends Grit and Oil
When activated by water, powerfully attracts soils and grit, holding them in suspension. Contaminants cannot escape to be redeposited on the floor surface.
Does not require rinsing, saving both time and wear and tear on cleaning equipment.
Allows Natural Sheen to Come Through
With regular and consistent use, over time, restores a sheen to floors that may have been dulled by improper care or no maintenance at all. Maintains the shine on new floors.
Heals Minor Scratches and Scrapes
Over time, can help to heal minor scratches and scrapes in the floor surface.
Used as a Poultice, Removes Tough Oil Stains
Can be used as a poultice to clean tough oil stains. Simply use CreteClean Plus at the more concentrated dilution rate of 4 oz per gallon of water. For more complete instructions, please download our CreteClean Plus with Scar Guard – Janitorial Directions.
Saves Valuable Time and Money
Cleans quickly and effectively. Well suited for use in automatic scrubbing machines, is low foaming, and does not require dwell time, agitation, and rinsing to be effective.
Diluted with water at a rate of only 1 oz per gallon of water. High concentration makes it extremely affordable compared to other commercial cleaners on the market.
Extend Your Warranty
Reduced Environmental Impact
Ingredients are biodegradable and non-harmful to the environment. Manufactured in an Eco Logo certified facility, and its high dilution rate means a reduction in energy, transportation, and product use.
Densified Floor Surface
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.
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.
Increased 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.
Increased Floor Hardness
Independent testing has proven that RetroPlate increases a floor’s impact resistance by up to 21% (ASTM C805).
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.
Lowest Life Cycle Cost
RetroPlate has the LOWEST per square foot life-cycle cost of any floor covering or coating. It saves money in both the initial installation, as well as in future maintenance and labor costs. Rather than cover up the floor with multiple coatings to hide the inherent problems of concrete, our Certified Applicators create polished floors to last a lifetime. Through the use of grinding and polishing, in conjunction with the specially formulated RetroPlate product, there is no need for topical sealers.
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.
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.
Unlimited Decorative Combinations
RetroPlate 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 densifier in the business allows for unlimited possibilities for floor design.
The Ashford Formula densifies with a unique and unmatched catalytic chemistry. Nearly 70 years ago, the Ashford Formula was developed as an alternative to coatings. When this product first came on the market, there were many skeptics who could not believe that one product could permanently make floor surfaces resistant to abrasion, easy to clean and free of dust.
Almost seven decades of performance have proven them wrong. These permanent results are achieved through the unique and unmatched catalytic chemistry. The concept is very simple: a concrete floor surface is internally densified through a process of crystalline growth. The same reaction also hardens the concrete and locks up the dust. Because the chemistry is inorganic, there is nothing to wear out, scratch or peel.
Concrete floors need to be durable. The Ashford Formula makes concrete abrasion resistant. In fact, abrasion testing shows that an Ashford Formula treated floor will be 32% harder within the first 30 minutes of treatment. The treated concrete will continue to harden over time. The Ashford Formula also acts as a supplement to surface and aggregate hardeners.
When used as a curing agent, the Ashford Formula slows the outward migration of water from concrete. Its chemical reaction forms a densified barrier that reduces shrinkage, reduces cracking and reduces hairline checking. And, we have the testing to prove it.
Concrete floors need to be free of dust. Concrete naturally creates dust from efflorescence, which then settles on finished goods, racks and equipment. The Ashford Formula combines with the salts in concrete to become an integral part of the concrete, thus completely dustproofing the surface. This substantially reduces maintenance costs and protects sensitive equipment and manufactured products from dust particles.
ELIMINATES HIGH CONSTRUCTION COSTS
The Ashford Formula reduces construction costs. It requires only one, permanent application. This eliminates the need to apply a curing membrane, which requires removal from the floor at a later time. When used at the time of placement, the Ashford Formula also significantly reduces crazing, or “map cracking” because it stabilizes the surface. This property of the Ashford Formula makes it especially useful for outdoor applications because it makes the concrete resistant to freeze-thaw damage. The Ashford Formula eliminates the need for repeated applications of urethanes, waxes, acrylics and other expensive maintenance-intensive floor coatings.
Because the Ashford Formula permanently densifies concrete, foreign matter such as oil, alkali, free lime and traffic scum are easily removed with regular cleaning. A regular maintenance program is highly recommended for any floor to remove surface contaminants and any acids or other corrosive materials should be removed immediately from the floor.
Steel troweled concrete floors treated with the Ashford Formula also take on a permanent and attractive marble-like sheen. The longer these floors are subjected to cleaning and traffic, the better they look. Floors treated with the Ashford Formula also have fewer tire marks from forklifts and other equipment. If tire marks do occur, they can be easily removed.
