Concrete surface retarder for horizontal and vertical surfaces

Sika® Rugasol® MH is a surface retarder used mainly for on site exposed aggregate work. Sika® Rugasol® MH surface retarder is used to expose aggregate on formed Portland cement based concrete surfaces, both vertical and horizontal.

Sika® Rugasol® MH dries on the formwork to form a tough, water-insoluble, abrasion resistant film. It is not affected by light foot traffic or by light showers. Forms may be coated before or after erection. Reinforcing steel is placed as usual. The depth of retardation depends upon the thickness of the coating, the time elapsed before the retarder is removed, the cement content and the quantity of water in the mix. The ambient temperature will also affect the depth of retardation.

Usage

Sika® Rugasol® MH provides an efficient, economical method of obtaining a rough bonding surface without the need of hacking, chipping or sandblasting. It can be painted directly onto formwork for:
  • Walls
  • Ceilings
  • Vertical construction joints
  • Precast panel

Forms may be coated before or after erection. Reinforcing steel is placed as usual. The depth of retardation depends upon the thickness of the coating, the time elapsed before the retarder is removed, the cement content and the quantity of water in the mix. The ambient temperature will also affect the depth of retardation. Advantages:
  • It can provide a decorative architectural finish to precast or insitu concrete surfaces.
  • Can be applied to most type of clean formwork such as steel, timber, plywood, etc.
  • Can be used in conjunction with Rugasol® C to provide constant aggregate exposure to both vertical and horizontal surfaces.
