New Grades of SurfEtch™ Top Surface Retarder

Butterfield Color® is proud to introduce SurfEtch™ 03 Top Surface Retarder and SurfEtch™ 15 Top Surface Retarder, the latest addition to our expanding line of decorative concrete top surface retarders.

SurfEtch™ Top Surface Retarder is a water-based, biodegradable, low odor top surface retarder. Applied to the surface of fresh concrete, SurfEtch™ Top Surface Retarder chemically delays the set of the surface mortar while allowing the underlying concrete to harden normally. This allows time for washing the surface, producing exposed aggregate flatwork, with subtle and varying reveals of texture and color.


Surfetch™ 03 Top Surface Retarder:

  • Medium acid wash finish
  • Medium sand texture
  • White liquid (color-coded for easy identification)


Surfetch™ 15 Top Surface Retarder:

  • Light sandblast texture
  • 1/8″ to 1/4″ aggregate exposure
  • Green liquid (color-coded for easy identification)
