Etch & Clean

Application

Areas of use:

  • Any bare concrete prior to painting;
  • Use on old and new concrete, inside or outside.

Description

A highly effective hydrochloric acid based etchant which removes surface laitance (a weak, cementitious dusty layer) from new, bare concrete prior to painting. The product's dual action formula both etches (provides a key) and cleans bare concrete ready for painting in one simple application.


Etch & Clean reduces the alkalinity in new concrete and has a thick, gel-like consistency which allows greater control when applying the product to the floor. This results in a more evenly etched finish and so promotes more effective paint adhesion. To help with application, a pH indicator changes from pink to clear once the surface has been prepared effectively.


Features and benefits:

  • Etches bare concrete to promote adhesion of paint finishes.
  • Removes dirt and light oil deposits.
  • Removes cement deposits from new concrete to ensure good paint adhesion.
  • Reduces alkalinity of new concrete – essential prior to application of single pack paints such as Watco Concrete Floor Paint.
  • Easy to use – unique gel formulation allows even etching.
  • Colour change system – when the pink liquid turns clear you know the job is done.
