MasonrySaver No-Rinse Concrete Etch – No need to rinse or neutralize prior to applying a stain or sealer
MasonrySaver® No-Rinse Concrete Etch is a hydrofluoric acid-etching material designed for etching concrete or other masonry surfaces prior to coating or sealing. A thin film of Etch will etch any concrete surface in 15 seconds. After using MasonrySaver® No-Rinse Concrete Etch, a stain or protective coating such as Epoxies may be applied directly over the etched surface once the substrate has completely dried.
Use MasonrySaver® No-Rinse Concrete Etch to etch concrete, brick, or masonry surfaces prior to coating.
- Etches all concrete, stone, tile, or brick surfaces
- Only generates the etching compound upon evaporation and contact with SiO2 or metal oxide
- Doesn’t require neutralization or rinsing
- Saves time – apply sealers or stains within hours instead of days
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT NOTES: Do not use No-Rinse Concrete Etch on limestone as the product will dissolve the limestone. Always test in an inconspicuous area to ensure desired results. Protect foliage and all applicable surrounding areas including wood, aluminum, glass, asphalt, vinyl siding, and painted surfaces. No-Rinse Concrete Etch is an adhesion promoter, not a cleaner. For cleaning surfaces, use MasonrySaver Safer Brick & Masonry Cleaner.
When etching concrete surfaces, DO NOT dilute No-Rinse Concrete Etch. For other less porous surfaces, such as porcelain, glass or tile, dilute product 4:1 with water.
Caution: When diluting product with water slowly add the product to the water while stirring. Never add water to the product. Apply only with a tight nap roller or a pad painter. DO NOT SPRAY OR BREATHE THE FUMES. Allow sufficient time for No-Rinse Concrete Etch to fully dry prior to applying a sealer. Use only in well-ventilated areas.
Drying Time: 15 – 30 minutes, depending upon conditions.
Clean Up: Clean equipment with soap and water. Rinse thoroughly.
Coverage: 200-400 square feet per gallon on concrete. 800 – 1,000 square feet per gallon on smooth surfaces such as porcelain, glass and tile.
Note: Coverage rates will vary based on the porosity of the substrate.
