ANTI EFF

ANTI EFF is a liquid acid cleaner based on phosphoric and nitric acids. It does not contain hydrochloric or sulfuric acids, which may contribute to discolouration and efflorescence. ANTI EFF is especially suited to the removal of efflorescence from concrete, clay and terracotta surfaces. ANTI EFF will also remove dirt and attack vegetable oil and fat spots on these surfaces. It finds use in a number of cleaning applications where strong mineral acids are required to solubilize metal salts on concrete surfaces.

On concrete surfaces, ANTI EFF should be applied as a diluted solution (one part of ANTI EFF to 25 parts of water) and should never be any more concentrated than 1:15. Concentrated ANTI EFF is corrosive and will cause pitting of concrete. Contact time should be limited to no more than 3 minutes. Clay and Terracotta surfaces are more resistant to the effects of acid and longer contact times and stronger solutions may be used. The surfaces should be rinsed and neutralized after application.

In all cases it is recommended that a small patch of surface be tested before full-scale treatment. Always apply ANTI EFF to a dampened surface. Always check in an inconspicuous area to ensure that no discolouration or patchiness occurs following application. Uniform application of ANTI EFF is essential.
