              Excellent
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Excellent product for many projects around the home. I had been needing to prep my basement and this is just what I needed to get it done. This worked perfectly to remove stains from the concrete. I love that I did not have to apply a very thick coat and it went on great. The best thing about this product is that you can paint right after using it with no problems. Seeing the results I am getting makes me wish that I had discovered this sooner, I am really satisfied. I am looking forward to using this for some more projects I am needing to complete. Great product that seems to be of high quality and great value. Highly recommend!

                First off, this product is excellent on concrete. If you want to prep a floor this is for you and the price is more than fair. But if you want to prep metal the concentration is just a bit too weak. I tried it when I ran out of an ospho product and it was simply not strong enough to take the rust down to it's roots and chemically encapsulate it. As an aside I also tried naval jelly. That appeared to be better for heavily rusted surfaces. For surface rust you want an ospho product.

                This is an excellent product to clean rust as I am restore antique Volkswagen air-cooled cars. I could not be anymore pleased and i highly recommend it. I iused on a set of disc brake rotors that had been in storage and had surface rust on and then after using the product it came back to life.. see the photos attached. I recommend it to all of my friends.

                works v well to subdue mill scale on new hot rolled steel. I used the solution on 3/8 " steel plate that was particularly marked with scale and the low-strength phosphoric acid in the Prep and Etch created an attractively refined-raw skin

                BEWARE!!!
                the product says 'etches concrete to allow paint or stains to penetrate and adhere"... WELL it is just the opposite for staining concrete, this product ruined my concrete stain job by etching the essential concrete minerals form the slab... this was a disaster for me.. spent 1K on acid stain only to have this product ruin it.. now I have to figure out what I can do to overlay the acid job!!!!!!!

                Excellence in ease of use and performance. My guess is this product is pre-diluted phosphoric acid. Just a little bit goes a long, long way. Converts iron oxide (rust) into an inert layer of iron phosphate. Strip the rusted area of as much rust as you can manage, then clean the surface to be prepared and allow it to dry. I used a cheap disposable chip brush to apply the prep. Avoid puddling. Coat and allow your work surface to dry thoroughly. I left my project overnight as recommended. Rust will turn black when properly treated. Wash your work surface off and allow to dry. Your item is then ready for paint or other coating.

                We use this over many years for cleaning 316 stainless steel that has been surface corroded in harsh environments. Works quickly, soak for an hour or overnight. Other metals watch for rapid action. Try naval jelly for vertical surfaces. Do not use on zinc plating or natural or EPDM rubber.
