F9 Calcium and Efflorescence Remover is breakthrough in the restoration and cleaning industry. F9 Calcium and Efflorescence Remover is a user friendly, full 31.45% strength muriatic acid replacement. This product combines a buffered, pleasant smelling acid along with an excellent soaping capability to work better at lower concentrations. F9 Calcium and Efflorescence Remover gives the user the advantage of a full strength product while greatly reducing fuming and corrosion, thereby improving overall health and safety risk profile.

Uses:

Concrete and Masonry: Use to clean efflorescence and calcium.  At stronger concentrations, use to etch concrete in preparation for painting or coatings.  At diluted ratios, use as a general cleaner.  Removes excess mortar from brick and mud stains.

Application instructions:

Always Add Acid to Water, NOT Water to Acid

Pre-Cleaning: If necessary, power wash surface to be cleaned using a commercial grade pressure washer, degreaser and surface cleaner to remove oil and debris.  An alkaline concrete cleaner may be used.  Rinse well.  Cleaning the concrete first will remove loose dirt and debris, clearing the path for better cleaning.

Dilution Ratios (Water to Product):

For Concrete, Brick, Paver, Grout & Masonry

Thick Calcium Stains and Concrete Prep for Coatings: 1:1 up to 4:1
Medium Calcium Stains: 4:1 up to 8:1
Light Calcium Stains: 8:1 to 12:1
Powdery Efflorescence Cleaning 12:1
General Cleaning 8:1

Cleaning Instructions:

For Concrete, Brick, Paver, Grout & Masonry

1. Add 1 part F9 Efflorescence and Calcium Remover to proper ratio of water.  (Since F9 HWSR has many uses, it is up to the Applicator to determine proper dilution ratios.  F9 HWSR can be applied straight up to a 12:1 dilution).   Always pour cold water into the bucket first, then add product.  Always test first to confirm compatibility and desired strength.  F9 HWSR CAN ETCH MASONRY.  ALWAYS TEST FIRST!

2. Mist surface with water so it is damp, but not puddling.

3. Spray product on surface to be cleaned using a pump up sprayer, hand held sprayer or the F9 Hand Carry Electric Sprayer.  Surface should foam immediately.   Let dwell 20 seconds to 3 minutes.  Do not let product dry.

4. Scrub surface as necessary with a hard bristled brush or broom.  Let dwell  another 1-15 minutes.  Neutralize surface.  Power wash with fan tip or surface cleaner if needed.  Do not let product dry.

5. Analyze results, repeat application if needed and adjust dilution according to desired results.

6. Several mild individual applications are better than one overpowering dose.  Always pressure wash and flush the surface after application
