pollutants and/or staining is present. Type D – (Custom

evaluation of your specific project.


Color/Form: Cream colored viscous liquid.


Approximately 50-75 sq. ft. per gallon at 1/16”dry depending on the porosity of the surface and the contaminants to be removed. Packaging: Five gallon containers Storage Requirements: 50°-100°F ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ freezes at 32°F. If ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ freezes it will no longer be usable.


ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ should not be applied when the air or surface temperature is below 50°F, or if rain or heavy moisture is forecasted. Do not use on carpeting
or fabric. Do not use on any stained wood surface as
discoloration may occur. Do not thin.


User shall determine the suitability of the product for its intended use and assumes all risk and liability whatsoever in connection therewith. A test area should be processed prior to beginning the overall project to determine precise procedures necessary for most effective results and compatibility to surface being treated. Allow the test area to thoroughly dry then test the ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ for ease of removal and overall results. This is especially important when temperatures are approaching or above 80°F as the ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ may cure in only a few hours.


Surface must be dry. 1. Apply at a temperature of 50°F or higher.
2. Apply a liberal 1/16” thick coat to the surface with a brush, spatula, roller or designated airless spray equipment. Apply evenly to avoid a thin, feathered edge.
3. For best results, agitation of the surface immediately after application will increase the cleaning action. While the product is wet agitate the surface with a stiff synthetic brush, especially over heavily soiled areas. Dirt and grime
will be pulled into the ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ while agitation takes place. After agitation, smooth the surface with additional ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ to create an even film. Spray applications of ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ can be made using an appropriate airless texture sprayer with a max working pressure of 3300psi, a tip size 27/1000 to 33/1000 depending on desired coating thickness.
4. The ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ does not require water in its application or removal; however, it is not water incompatible. For example, you may find it helpful to agitate a heavily soiled surface with a water dampened brush to prevent premature drying.
5. Allow the ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ to fully dry a minimum of 6 hours on the surface. Depending on substrate and amount of contaminates to be removed a 12 to 72 hour curing time may be required.
6. To remove the dried ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™, start at a corner and peel the film away from the surface.
7. Following removal, wipe down treated areas with a damp
sponge to remove any remaining residue.
NOTE: To ensure the ease of removal, remove from the surface within 3 days of the initial date of application. Thin applications of ABR Waterless Cleaning Poultice™ may be difficult to remove and may require the use of the ABR Citrus Paint Remover Liquid®


CLEAN UP & DISPOSAL: Rinse brush, roller or sprayer in a pail with water and dish detergent. Do not pour down drain. Dispose of in accordance with state, local, and federal regulations.
