MasterFinish HV: High abrasion-resistant in-form surface retarder for producing exposed-aggregate finishes under difficult casting conditions

Formerly: MBT Hi-V

How does MasterFinish HV work?

MasterFinish HV is a chemical retarder specifically designed to produce uniform exposed-aggregate finishes on architectural or ornamental precast and cast-in-place concrete vertical walls. Its extremely high abrasion resistance makes MasterFinish HV retarder ideal for producing exposed aggregate concrete under a wide variety of conditions.

Recommended uses:

  • Architectural precast/prestressed concrete
  • Cast stone
  • Cast-in-place concrete

What are the unique features of MasterFinish HV?

  • Highly abrasion-resistant
  • Controlled penetration delays the set of surface only
  • Ideal for vertical applications
  • Wide range of etches available, including light etch
  • Depths of etch are color-coded
  • High-pressure water washing

What are the benefits of MasterFinish HV?

  • Increased placement time
  • Consistent water-washed, exposed aggregate surfaces
  • Variety of exposed aggregate appearances
  • Easy identification
  • Ease and speed of production
  • Saves time and labor when used as an alternative to sand blasting
