Etching solution used to clean and degrease
bare concrete surfaces to improve penetration and
adhesion of paint, stains and sealants; self-neutralizing,
environmentally safe, no odor and no VOCs.
Garage fl oors
Read all instructions thoroughly. Wear safety
goggles with side shields, rubber gloves and protective
Sweep surface. Use a degreaser like SEAL-
KRETE® Oil Stain Remover to remove oily stains. For best
results, pressure-wash surface prior to etching.
For garage floors and other smooth-troweled
concrete, mix 1/2 gallon of Clean-N-Etch to 1/2 gallon of
water. For other surfaces, mix 1/2 gallon of Clean-N-Etch to
1 gallon of water. For light cleaning, mix 1/2 gallon of Clean-
N-Etch to 1-1/2 gallons of water.
Read “LIMITATIONS” section before use.
Working a 10 ft. x 10 ft. section at a time, dampen surface
with water, then apply Clean-N-Etch with a pump sprayer
or watering can. Using a stiff-bristled broom, scrub solution
into surface until foaming action stops. Rinse surface
thoroughly with a strong stream of water, scrubbing while
rinsing to ensure removal of all material. Surface should feel
rough (like 150 grit sandpaper). When dry, check surface
by applying a few drops of water. Water should penetrate
quickly – if not, re-etch affected area. Allow surface to dry
thoroughly before applying paint or stain.
troweled concrete (i.e., carports, garage and basement
floors) generally requires 2 applications to achieve a proper
CLEAN-UP & STORAGE:
Clean all application tools with
water immediately after use. KEEP FROM FREEZING. Always
store at temperatures above 50°F.
Do not apply to concrete that has already been sealed, painted or stained.
