How many square feet will 1 gallon cover?

Asked by: Jack
Coverage usually ranges from 200 to 400 square feet per gallon after dilution (plan on 200 square feet per diluted gallon just to be on the safe side). Dilute a gallon of ER100 1:4(one part ER100 to four parts water makes 5 gallons) or 1:9(makes 10 gallons) with water for cleaning pavers and hardscape surfaces.

Will it correct the efflorescence milky appearance on already dyed and sealed concrete?

We recently dyed our porch, patio and walkway. The walkway that is flanked by shrubs and plantings has marked efflorescence even after waiting 36-72 hours after rain. Can we correct this or are we looking at starting the entire process of etchingand dying all over again? I have also read that if we continue to apply additional coats of sealer, a chemical reaction will occur and dry clear. We have tried this in a small area and noted small improvement, but no fix. Should we apply additional coats or will this product correct the probelm?
Asked by: Louise
Try not to use the ER100 for removing mineral deposits on an acrylic coating because it's quite acidic and could slightly degrade the coating. Try cleaning exterior acrylic coatings with white vinegar and water which is acidic but less concentrated than the ER100. You can also use a pressure washer and turn the pressure down low to assist with cleaning. If your concrete surface has a coating with a milky appearance it could be blushing(water trapped between the coating and the concrtete) rather than efflorescence. Assuming that you applied an acrylic coating, was the coating water based acrylic or solvent/oil based acrylic? If the coating was water based and blushed, you will need to chemically strip or mechanically remove any milky/blush spots. There is not a product that will repair a water based acrylic coating that has blushed. Water is being trapped between the coating and the concrete which takes away the clarity. If your coating is solvent/oil based acrylic and blushed, you can pick up some xylene in Home Depot's paint section along with a 3/8 to 1/2 inch nap roller to re-emulsify the coating. Wet the roller with xylene and roll back and forth for about 15 to 30 seconds without any significant pressure. This usually clears up an oil based sealer if it faded a bit from sunlight or blushing.

Is this product good for colored pavers?

Asked by: Jr
You can use the ER100 on colored pavers, just remember to dilute each gallon of ER100 with 9 gallons of water rather than 1 to 4 for standard/uncolored concrete.
