ElectraEtch Acid Etching Solution – Extended Information


Caution: ElectraEtch Acid Etching Solution is formulated for professional use only! Safety glasses, gloves and protective footwear should be worn at all times during application. Provide for adequate ventilation of fumes which may be generated during the application. In enclosed areas with limited ventilation a respirator may be necessary. DO NOT mix this product with other chemicals. NOTE: ElectraEtch should be used with extreme caution on polished surfaces and marble, terrazzo, limestone, or other calcium containing materials. ElectraEtch will remove the gloss from polished surfaces and will etch and possibly damage soft or high calcium content stones.


Application: Uniformly dampen the area to be treated with clean water. For light to medium soil or staining on ceramic tile of stone dilute ElectraEtch Acid Etching Solution 1 part product to 3 parts cold water. For heavy soil or staining or for etching concrete ElectraEtch Acid Etching Solution may be concentrated 1 part product to 1 part cold water. NOTE: Concentrations of ElectraEtch at 1:1 or higher can cause efflorescence in grout lines which should be removed by scrubbing with hot water and a deck brush or a 175-300 RPM buffing machine equipped with a brush.


Apply solution to the floor using a plastic watering can then spread EVENLY using a synthetic fiber deck brush or synthetic fiber mop. Allow the solution to work for approximately 5 minutes or until the white foaming action ceases.


NOTE: Do Not allow the product to pool or puddle as over etching may occur and shadow thru the subsequent coating of ElectraGuard ESD Epoxy Floor Paint or ElectraSeal concrete sealer. Scrub the application area with a buffing machine equipped with a staggered bristle zim-grit or nylo-grit type brush or deck brush to assist in thorough cleaning. Completely remove the etching solution, preferably with a wet vacuum. Rinse by applying clean water liberally with a watering can or mop. Scrub briefly to agitate rinse water.
