Efflorescence Rid removes efflorescence from concrete
Scientific Efflorescence Remover – A liquid applied cleaner that removes efflorescence from concrete and masonry surfaces, brick block, pavers etc.
Efflorescence Rid is a Unique Scientific Developed Industrial Strength Salt, efflorescence remover specially designed so that it effectively removes efflorescence from concrete in industrial, commercial and residential situations.
The formulation contains no solvents, but is corrosive. Is non-flammable, non-carcinogenic, is biodegradable. Observe Safety & Health Precautions – Product is Corrosive (Class 8).
On application to the affected areas, Efflorescence Rid penetrates the surface and liquefies the salts (efflorescence) and brings it to the surface of the substrate, where this is washed away, then after 20 minutes or longer Efflorescence Rid is re applied to the same area.
- General removal of efflorescence from concrete.
- Removes Efflorescence Salt from and new or old constructions affected by efflorescence, historical and public buildings.
- Walls, floors suffering efflorescence Masonry, brick, block structures
- Dissolves and removes efflorescence deposits from concrete, allowing removal
- User friendly, it does not require special protection equipment. Protect surrounding areas, wet down plants and trees, cover metal and glass.
- Environmental friendly (is considered a green product) non-flammable.
Preparation of the surface: Remove excessive build-up of efflorescence Remove all loose material. If required use –Power Clean to help removes efflorescence from concrete.
Apply by low pressure pump spray ensuring a uniform and homogeneous coverage.
Foam appears when efflorescence is present. Apply until “Foam” begins to appear.
Wait 5-8 minutes, mechanically agitate and re-apply as required, use zero pressure washer to remove efflorescence.
Continue to apply Efflorescence-Rid to areas where foam appears and until foam no longer forms.
Rinse area thoroughly with water.
Continue to apply Efflorescence-Rid to areas where foam appears and until foam no longer forms. This process removes efflorescence from concrete. Rinse area thoroughly with water.
Allow surface to dry for approximately two hours before the application of Sealtight to prevent further salt formation
