Coo-Var Acid Etch is a careful blend of acids and wetting agents in solution. Acid Etch removes residual laitence from all new concrete - use prior to painting. Removes laitence and salts from concrete and render. Should be used to prepare exceptionally smooth surfaces and power floated concrete floors where blasting and mechanical abrasion is not practical.
Clear and sweep the area to be etched to remove debris. Ensure surface is free of oil and grease before application.
Dilution guide. Mix 1 part Coo-Var Acid Etch with 3 parts water, further applications may be necessary depending upon the severity of etch/cleaning required.
See Health and Safety data sheet for suitable personal protective equipment. When the Acid Etch is applied it begins to react with the surface and will bubble as the reaction is carried out. When the bubbling has stopped then the reaction is complete and the remaining neutralised acid should be washed away with fresh water. Allow to dry completely before attempting to paint the surface.
Suitable Coo-Var top coat.
Essential for good adhesion of paint where mechanical abrading is not possible.
