COVERAGE: 200 sq. ft./gal. without dilution.

Etch & Clean is an inorganic acid concentrate with degreasing additives formulated for use on concrete surfaces. Etch & Clean is formulated to produce a slight etch to concrete surfaces while removing oil, grease and dirt. Etch & Clean is more effective than straight muriatic acid since it does not leave a calcium film behind. (Muriatic acid can hinder the adhesion of future coating.) Etch & Clean sets up a bondable clean surface for coatings of epoxies, latex paints, urethanes, ceramic tiles and other coatings.
