Ashford Formula

Think concrete is tough? We make it tougher.

 The Ashford Formula is a chemically reactive liquid that penetrates the concrete, solidifying the concrete surface components into a solid mass. It produces a permanently denser, harder, penetration and abrasion resistant concrete surface. Ashford Formula is inorganic, nontoxic, VOC free, colorless and odorless.

Why Densify Your Concrete Floor?

For years, concrete floors were protected with films and coatings - merely temporary solutions which wear away and require re-application. Ashford Formula takes a different approach by penetrating the concrete surface, growing crystals in the concrete itself. This reaction fills the natural pores and voids in the concrete, densifying the surface internally.

There are so many choices and so many reasons, but the decision is simple. An Ashford Formula treated floor simply out-performs the competition in results and long-term cost savings, with an economical one-time investment. Properly densifying your floor means doing the job right the first time for results that last a lifetime.

The Right Decision – Now and for the Future

Your concrete floor is more than a building foundation. It is also the foundation of your business productivity. For lifelong floor performance, long-term cost effectiveness and sustainability, worldwide corporations like Caterpillar, Coca-Cola, DHL, Procter & Gamble, IKEA and Whirlpool have chosen Ashford Formula as their concrete densifier of choice.

With its one-time application, the Ashford Formula never requires re-treatment. It provides exceptional performance for the entire life of your floor. Never halt your business productivity or pay for costly repeated applications down the road. It’s why notable worldwide corporations have chosen the performance of the Ashford Formula.

With the longest proven track record of performance in the industry, over 70 years, Ashford Formula is the trusted product for permanent, superior concrete floor results.

RetroPlate

The RetroPlate Concrete Polishing System began as a way of removing old, worn out coatings and providing owners and facility managers with long-term solutions. Rather than simply covering the floor, Advanced Floor Products looked for ways to use and enhance existing concrete. By chemically treating the floor and polishing the bare concrete, the RetroPlate System created a highly abrasion resistant, dustproofed, polished and very aesthetic floor that is easy to clean.  This was the long-term solution many in the concrete industry were looking for! After countless hours of research and development, laboratory and field testing, the RetroPlate Concrete Polishing System was unveiled as the first concrete polishing system in the market, and birthed the concrete densification and polishing industry.

As the RetroPlate System was used to refurbish and retrofit existing floors, owners, architects and others involved began to realize that this system would be ideal for newly constructed floors. They began to specify the RetroPlate System on their new floors, creating the ideal flooring finish, while avoiding the coating and covering pitfalls of traditional methods. The RetroPlate System quickly evolved into a system for new concrete.  

The RetroPlate System is now used in new construction, on existing floors, and in conjunction with dyes, acid staining, shake-on hardeners, integral color, and cementitious terrazzo. The natural look and feel of polished and protected concrete is a perfect combination of old world construction and charm, and modern technology and convenience.

The desire to help owners, facility managers and architects find a long-term solution for their floors has created a state-of-the-art floor finish with limitless possibilities. 

And You Thought Concrete was Boring!

Concrete has forever been a building block of civilization as evidenced by the impressive structures from the Egyptians, Greeks and many other ancient civilizations that still remain standing today. Concrete creates a very lasting structure, however its greatest strength, prior to the introduction of the RetroPlate Concrete Polishing System by Advanced Floor Products, has not been as a flooring surface. Although it’s compressive strength is great, its abrasion resistance is not. Concrete in its “natural” state is a porous product that is easily stained, susceptible to efflorescence, spalling and dusting, does not provide an aesthetic finish, and is not easily cleaned. Even performing a “cover-up” with other flooring materials would often prove costly and ineffective. Something had to be done, and Advanced Floor Products and Curecrete Distribution, Inc. did it!

In 1996, Curecrete Distribution, Inc., began searching for the answer to eliminate what had grudgingly become accepted as “those inherent problems of concrete.” Everywhere, facility managers and building owners were tiring of the ongoing costs and mess that are associated with topical products. They looked great the first day, the first month, maybe even the first year; but then came the cost and mess of stripping and reapplying.  Then there were problems of yellowing, cracking and peeling; and what about moisture problems? What was the life of the product, how costly was it to maintain, would the adhesive fail, on and on.  Through thorough testing and perfecting of the RetroPlate Concrete Polishing System, the ORIGINAL PATENTED CONCRETE POLISHING SYSTEM, Advanced Floor Products was able to deliver the ultimate solution to facility managers and building owners that exceeded their flooring expectations. 

Advanced Floor Products has created a science and art that revolves around the conversion of concrete from a plain, porous industrial floor, to one of strength, longevity and beauty. Rather than covering up the floor and hiding the inherent problems of concrete, only to create new ones, Advanced Floor Products created a floor that meets and exceeds long-term needs. Through the combination of wet diamond grinding/polishing and the RetroPlate chemical, the RetroPlate Concrete Polishing System created a patented means to permanently strengthen concrete floors, whether old or new, and to deliver a highly abrasion resistant, dustproofed floor with increased impact resistance and reflectivity. Problem floors were becoming a thing of the past.
