  • Makes exposed aggregate finishes easier and more consistent
  • It is topically applied to freshly-placed concrete to prevent cement paste hardening and achieve more controlled exposed aggregate finishes
  • Unlike sugar-based retarders with uncertain levels of retardation, Deactivator selectively halts the hydration process down to a controlled depth
  • Provides a longer window before the surface paste must be removed, it allows underlying concrete to harden properly, locking in aggregate and reducing pop-outs
  • Water-soluble for easy removal with high pressure water washing scrubbing equipment
  • Coverage: 150 square feet per gallon
  • Size: 5 Gallon Pail
