Will this product harm brick pavers that are next to the concrete area I want to etch before staining? Do the brick pavers need to be masked off and covered with plastic before using this product? Thanks
Asked by: Geno
I would be careful. It may stain or discolor the pavers. Test a small out-of-the-way section first.

Can I use this on a brick floor?
Asked by: xstr8x
If it's actual fired brick, no. If it's concrete pavers made to look like bricks, then yes. The acid will attack the portland cement that's in concrete and etch the surface making it rougher, and ready to paint or coat. Fired bricks won't react that way.

I'm trying to find concrete disolver to clean tools that have cacked on concrete build up. Will this work the same or close to concrete dissolver ?

Its normally i guess guys use a brand named "Speedy clean" concrete disolver. I'm hoping this might be chemically close so I can pick it up in store.
Asked by: Mandingo69
I dont Know, but it might affect the tooling material if you soak it. I got This to use for concrete prep, but found it is not to be used indoors, only in garages. I was Covering concrete in the basement. Depending on what the concrete makeup is, CLR might work. It dissolves calcium and lime.

Rust-Oleum 1 gal. Concrete Etch and Cleaner is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 85.

I first blew out the garage debris with my leaf blower. Then I mixed this with water per instructions and began scrubbing. The 1 gallon of water to 1 gallon of etch is WRONG. YOU WILL RUN OUT. I would recommend getting your 2 gallon watering can, dump half the bottle of etch in the can, and fill the rest up with water. I found myself adding water to the can twice so I wouldn't run out, and it was still fizzing on contact. Other than that it worked fine. Also, don't expect this product to remove grease stains or tire marks, that's not what it's designed for!

I especially liked that it didn't harm the plants and rose bushes surrounding the patio. It did exactly as the instruction indicated. It was easy to apply and rinse off the concrete. I would recommend this product to anyone needing to clean and etch their concrete.

I was so disappointed that I returned the second gallon unopened. The product just wasn't effective at etching the concrete. I picked up some muratic acid instead and it worked tremendously better, and it was cheaper too.
