Clean & Etch is a water based concentrated, non-hazardous, biodegradable cleaner for preparing concrete surfaces for coatings, sealers or stains.
-High reaction, similar to traditional acid cleaners without the same hazards
-Concentrated formula for easy dilution and freight savings
-No harmful fumes or odours
- For health and safety purposes, always ensure that you're wearing resistant goggles and impervious gloves when handling any etching solution. For peace of mind, always ensure that you test your chemical product before use on your final project.
- This product can be diluted with up to 4 parts water to 1 part Clean & Etch.
- The use of a plastic pump sprayer is recommended. Do not use any metal sprayers.
- Work product into surface using an acid brush. Etching should take place immediately and will generate a foam or fizzing reaction with the concrete.
- Allow Clean & Etch to remain on surface for 5-15 minutes followed by a thorough wash down with water until surface is free of all cleaner residue.
- Allow surface to dry completely and check surface pH before applying any subsequent stains or sealers to make sure it is neutral.
