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?

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.

You add to water and we used a nylon broom to put it on driveway. This was first step before putting the garage driveway epoxy paint. The tech cleaner does an amazing job cleaning the driveway and has made the paint adhere and dry beautifully.

Scrubbed product into broom-clean concrete parking pad. No fizzing. Very little cleaning. I then power-washed the surface to remove all the deep grime. Will try again before priming and staining. Not much value when you need to buy twice and make two round trips. On the plus side it is nontoxic and much less hazardous than a traditional etch product. Still, wear gloves, boots, and eye protection.
