A: Zane - Etching products will not work on sealed or painted surfaces, you will need to remove the coatings so the acid can reach the substrate.
A: Nadi - That is not a application we suggest this product for. Please consult with a Home Depot associate for the proper product.
A: DSmith - Thank you for your question. Yes, DRYLOK® Etch can be used on rough or smooth masonry surfaces to aid in removing effloresence or cleaning. Please refer to label and/or product data sheet for mixing instructions based on your specific application. If you have any questions, we're here to help at www.askugl.com or 1-800-845-5227.
A: DVVAnnie - In some cases depending on the severity or amount of salt in the substrate, it may reoccur. It's important to remove the efflorescence from the surface before painting as it will affect adhesion. Applying DRYLOK® Protector with Saltlok® technology as a primer will help in reducing the reoccurrence. You can apply latex paints over the DRYLOK® Protector. https://www.homedepot.com/p/DRYLOK-Protector-1-gal-Clear-Low-Sheen-Penetrating-Sealer-with-SaltLok-Concrete-Sealer-29913/314743117
