1 GAL Armor ER100 Efflorescence Remover and Cleaner
The Armor Efflorescence Remover is a proprietary blend of low odor acids, surfactants, and detergents. It can be used to remove efflorescence and clean concrete and brick without discoloring or damaging the surface.
Always test the surface to be prepared for previous coatings. This product will not work properly over coated concrete surfaces and is not to be used as a chemical coating stripper. It is always recommended to test Armor Efflorescence Remover prior to application for proper dilution rates, application coverage rates, and simply to ensure this product is what is needed for your application.
Protect all areas not to be cleaned and prepared.
Dilute Armor Efflorescence Remover with water to desired dilution rate (mix with cold water, d not mix with warm or hot water).
Pre-wet the surface to be cleaned. Using a polyethylene pump sprayer, apply at a rate of up to 200-400 sq. ft. per gallon. Always use an acid resistant plastic sprayer. Work in areas of approximately 200 square feet at one time, covering the entire working surface not leaving dry areas or spots. Overlap sections prior to moving on to remaining areas.
Allow 5-10 minutes for proper reaction, then by use of an acid resistant brush, work cleaner into the surface.
Rinse thoroughly with water. Repeat until floor is clean and free of all material. Note: high pressure 500-1000 psi rinsing is recommended for best results. Make sure the final rinse is done with a PH balancing solution (such as water and ammonia, or water and baking soda). Remove standing water with a wet vacuum.
Clean all equipment and tools with a warm soap and water solution.
Allow the area to dry 18-24 hours.
Coverage rates vary depending upon surface porosity and texture, and application method. Excessive build up should be avoided. Each gallon will cover up to 200-400 square feet. One gallon of Armor Efflorescence Remover can be diluted with up to 9 gallons of water.
