Etch n' Clean Concrete Etching Solution - 1 gal (500+ sq/ft)
Concrete floors require preparation before applying a paint, high - performance coating system, stain or a concrete sealer. The preparation usually involves cleaning the surface to remove oil and other unwanted contaminants then "profiling" the concrete by etching with acid or by mechanical abrasion. If the concrete does not have heavy oil contamination, The Original Color Chips Floor Coating System Etch 'n Clean will provide both the cleaning and the profiling in one operation.
For optimized performance, dillute the etch 'n clean in a 1 to 1 mix ratio with water. (1 gallon of etch 'n clean with 1 gallon of water). This will give you 2 gallons of solution to work with. (500+ sq/ft feet).
If the concrete has been steel-trowelled, the surface will be very smooth. This finishing technique works fine cement particles to the surface creating a very hard, dense finish. Steel-trowelled floors may require multiple applications to achieve the desired profile.
The Original Color Chips Etch 'N Clean Has several uses!
- Cleans While Etching

- Phosphatizing Steel
- De-Rusting Steel
- Masonry and Brick Cleaning
- Food Plant Cleaning
- Form Release Compounds
- Oil, Grease, Soot, Dirt
- Galvanized Passivation Film
- Heat Scale, Oils, Lubricants
- Efflorescence, Laitance
- Rust, Non-Ferrous Corrosion
Cleaning, degreasing and profiling the surface to prepare it for coating, staining or sealing.
Cleans mortar joints, removes excess mortar and dissolves efflorescence
Cleans, degreases, derusts and creates a phosphate conversion coating.
Removes the passivation film on galvanized steel to improve coating adhesion
On concrete, Etch 'N Clean reduces preparation time by eliminating the separate pre-cleaning and rinsing operation before acid etching.
On Passivated Galvanized, Etch 'N Clean degrades the passivation coating on galvinized steel and impoves coating adhesion.
On steel, Etch 'N Clean cleans, degreases and provides a phosphate conversion coating for improved corrosion resistance and enhanced coating adhesion.
Etch 'N Clean has no acidic vapors eliminating the accidental corrosion of ductwork, electrical contacts in machinery and equipment and other sensitive parts.
Additionally, Etch 'N Clean is ideal for use in areas with limited ventilation such as basements, swimming pools, containment areas and pits.
Etch 'N Clean is odorless, non-flammable and is safe to use near vegetation.
||For best results on concrete:
||Dillute 1 gallon of water to 1 gallon of solution.
||If available, hot water will accelerate cleaning
||Sweep loose debris and dampen the surface
||Apply solution and scrub with a stiff brush
||or broom until bubbling stops. NOTE: if no
||bubbling occurs, surface is coated with
||curing compounds or contaminants
||preventing etching. Remove contamination
||and reapply Etch 'n Clean.
||Only work in an area that you can rinse immediately
||after the bubbling stops (usually a few minutes)
||Triple rinse with water to neutralize. On
||floors, squeegee off rinse water to speed
||Allow the surface to dry thoroughly. (min. 24hrs)
||Floor should resemble 100 grit sandpaper or more
||coarse. If not, etch again.
Low Odor Mastic & Adhesive Remover / Sentinel PL-145
Our most economical and most popular solvent for dissolving tough asphaltic floor mastics. Low odor blend of hydrocarbons with built-in penetrants and surfactants assists in quick-action and sure clean-up. The formula wets out asbestos fibers and prevents them from becoming airborne. Special emulsifiers aid in preparing the surface for new adhesives. 141• flash
Before beginning work, be sure to protect all walls, flooring, carpeting, cracks or wood from liquid material.
This will ensure easier cleanup and eliminate potential problems.
Once the floor tile is removed, simply apply the product to the adhesive. This may be done by using a mopto evenly distribute the material. Allow the material to soak and penetrate for 10-15 minutes.
Using scrapers, remove the softened adhesive from the floor surface and reapply product to remaining adhesive residue. Repeat as necessary.
Using brooms or floor scrubbers, agitate resulting mixture and remove all liquids using absorbents.
Step 5: Once the mastic and cleaner are removed, all residues may be completely rinsed by washing the floor with a soap and water mixture. Allow the subfloor to dry completely before reflooring.
Coverage rates for our Low Odor Mastic Remover will range from 80 to 150 square feet per gallon for mastic removal.
