Going Green

Marble Shooters is a certified installer for RetroPlate and we take great pride in providing a “GREEN” and environmentally friendly system for your concrete. After all taking care of our environment is becoming a greater concern for home owners, contractors, architects, and others who care about our environment, and we are proud to provide a system that meets those demands.

Defining GREEN

When people think of the term “GREEN,” they are thinking of how they can minimize their impact on the Earth. In other words, how they can live, breathe and build without causing , or at least minimizing, harm to the environment.

Environmentally Safe

One of the many advantages of using RetroPlate concrete polishing system is the fact that it is environmentally safe. The RetroPlate system uses no solvents or volatile organic compounds. It is also an odorless, nonflammable, and nontoxic system. If an existing coating is removed in preparation for the RetroPlate System, we recommend using a wet grinding process, which bypasses the need for stripping with acids and other strong chemicals. In every step of the Retroplate System, an environmentally safe approach is taken.

Program (LEED). RetroPlate has earned its PLATINUM, GOLD and SILVER on numerous projects. To learn more about the LEED program, visit www.usgbc.org.

Natural Process

In every step of the RetroPlate System, an environmentally safe approach is taken. When you or your customers utilize RetroPlate, you are simply taking a formulation of water and naturally occurring materials to strengthen the concrete. By refurbishing the existing concrete, we are recycling, and saving energy as well as landfill space.

Natural Product

The RetroPlate product, being a water-based sodium silicate, works by chemically interacting with the calcium hydroxide in the cement component of concrete. We are not creating a topical floor covering, nor are we creating a flooring product that will require extensive maintenance, stripping, ongoing topical treatments or future disposal in a landfill. We are simply utilizing natural products to enhance the performance of other natural products, and we do it in a safe, environmentally friendly and cost efficient way.
