Limitations

  • Do not mix the product with other chemicals.

Consult MAPEI's Technical Services Department for application recommendations regarding surfaces and conditions not listed.

Surface Preparation

  • Be sure that all surfaces to be cleaned are swept or vacuumed to remove loose debris.
  • For best results, pre-wet the surface with water.

Product Application

Choose all appropriate safety equipment before use. Refer to the Safety Data Sheet for details.

Always test first in several inconspicuous areas to confirm desired results.

  1. Avoid skin and eye contact by wearing chemical-resistant gloves and protective lenses.
  2. Shake container well before using. Do not dilute before applying.
  3. Working in a small manageable area of 15 sq. ft. (1,39 m²), liberally apply the solution with a mop, sponge applicator, paint roller or brush.
  4. Allow the product to stand wet on the surface for 10 to 15 minutes. Misting surface with a light amount of water is acceptable to keep the product from drying during the standing period. If the product dries, reapply it.
  5. Agitate the surface with a soft brush or white scrub pad after testing a small area first, in order to make sure that the brush or pad will not scratch the surface.
  6. Thoroughly rinse the surface with clean water. A high-pressure washer or hose can be used. Mop or wet-vacuum up the dirty solution.
  7. Heavily built-up efflorescence may require additional applications and longer standing time. If necessary, repeat steps 3 through 7.
  8. Allow the area to dry for 24 hours before sealing it with any UltraCare sealer.

Close container tightly after each use. Store in original container only. Store between the temperatures of 35°F to 90°F (2°C to 32°C). Do not allow to freeze.
