Eco Concrete Etcher is a water-based non-hazardous, non-corrosive, 100% biodegradable, odorless, VOC-free, non-flammable concrete etching and cleaning solution. This advanced formula incorporates a blend of organic chemicals and surfactants for the most effective concrete etching solution available. It does not contain phosphoric or hydrochloric (muriatic) acids which present health and environmental risks including toxic fumes and corrosive run-off.
Eco Concrete Etcher is the preferred eco-friendly and user-friendly etching alternative for interior or exterior concrete preparation. It opens the pores on hard-troweled or non-porous concrete. This allows better adhesion prior to the application of any of our Concrete Sealers.
Additionally, it is also ideal for cleaning, degreasing, and acid-etching concrete floors and walls. Use in basements, garages, factories, warehouses, driveways, swimming pools, patios, and containment areas prior to coating, staining, or sealing. Use on concrete, masonry, block, brick, mortar, and grout to properly prepare substrates for optimum penetration and adhesion. It also removes dirt, clay, mortar deposits, rust, and efflorescence and reduces the pH of new concrete which can burn off sealers.
Eco Concrete Etcher is ready to use etcher which covers 100 to 200 sf/gal depending on the concrete porosity. Apply with a pump-up sprayer or watering can and scrub the surface with a stiff brush for 15 minutes without allowing the etcher to dry out. Rinsing thoroughly with water 2 or 3 times to neutralize the etching action.
