DAICH Concrete Safe Cleaner & Etcher is an all-in-one solution for safely and effectively cleaning most concrete surfaces and also for preparing them for optimal adhesion performance prior to coating with paints and other coverings — including all DAICH decorative stone coatings for concrete.
- helps remove dirt, grease, oil, mold and auto fluid stains for everyday concrete cleaning
- effective etching action opens pores and adds surface profile to very smooth concrete surfaces. Optimizes penetration and adhesion of paints and sealers
- low odor, water-based formula
- bio-degradable and safe to use near glass and plants
SURFACE PREPARATION: Surface must be free of loose dirt and debris, leaves, dried peeling paint, etc. Use a stiff bristle brush or broom to clean out holes or cracks packed with dirt and debris to enable good contact with Cleaner/Etcher to bare concrete. Wet the surface with a garden hose.
USAGE: Wear rubber gloves and boots and eye protection during use. Pre-wet adjoining grass and plants. Work across the area in 10 ft x 10 ft (3m x 3m) sections. Pre-wet the concrete surface without puddling. Pour a small amount of Cleaner/Etcher directly onto the damp concrete and move the solution around with a bristle broom. Allow it to fizz on the surface for a few moments and then scrub the area with a bristle broom to further loosen and remove dirt. Rinse the section and proceed with additional sections in the same manner until the surface has been treated. More soiled areas or very smooth concrete, may require a second application and scrubbing. For ultimate final rinsing on outdoor surfaces, use a pressure washer to effectively remove all etching/cleaning residues and open up the pores.
