Eco-Etch Pro™ Concrete Etcher & Cleaner Concentrate

Better. Safer. Faster.
Eco-Etch Pro™ is a water-based non-hazardous, non-corrosive, biodegradable concentrate concrete etch and cleaning solution. It is the ideal acid etch alternative. This advanced formula incorporates a custom blend of surfactants, organic minerals and derivatives of a plant based extract for the most effective concrete etching solution available. This acid etch alternative does not contain phosphoric, hydrochloric or muriatic acid, yet works better, safer and faster. Eco-Etch Pro™ is the preferred eco-friendly and user friendly acid etching alternative for interior or exterior surface preparation applications. The acid etching alternative, and concrete etching product will not burn skin, corrode mild steel, or harm vegetation.

Use this for concrete etching, and as an acid etching alternative for, masonry, cinder block, brick, mortar joints and grout to properly prepare substrates for optimum penetration and adhesion of stains, paints, industrial coatings, and sealers. Eco-Etch Pro also removes dirt, clay, mortar deposits, efflorescence and light rust. A one step concrete etch and clean solution that brings back a new look surface. This concrete etching product and acid etching alternative is highly recommended for use with SoyCrete™ Concrete Stain and Eco-Tuff™ Coatings for optimum porosity and desirable results.

Eco-Etch Pro™
begins to work immediately upon contact without toxic hazards or dangerous skin burns associated with traditional acid formulas. Eco-Etch Pro™ should be used in full strength or diluted up to 3:1 (makes up to 4 gallons) with water for lighter cleaning and etching requirements as pre-tested for proper efficacy. One gallon will cover up to 200 square feet. Dwell time will vary from 5 to 15 minutes which is also affected by the dilution ratio, porosity, and temperature. Rinsing thoroughly with water neutralizes the etching action. Make sure the solution creates a reactive foam and remains wet during the etching process.

"How to Video Series" How to Etch & Profile Concrete for Stains and Sealers

The Basics:
  1. Be sure the concrete is free of all sealers, curing compounds, and contaminants that prohibits reaction of Eco-Etch to the calcium and lime inherent in concrete. Pretest a small area to determine effective concentration and dwell time (5-10 minutes).
  2. White foaming must occur to confirm proper chemical reaction upon contact. Allow sufficient dwell time, keeping the solution wet to achieve desired profile level.
  3. Work in small manageable sections to avoid letting the solution dry. Apply with a pump sprayer, then scrub with a hard bristle brush, black stripping pad, or 60-grit sanding disc to spread it uniformly and to deeply agitate the wet solution.
  4. After the 5 to 15 minute dwell time as determined by your test patch, neutralize and clean of all concrete dust and residue with clean rinse water. Repeat as necessary to ensure all dust residue has been removed.
  5. You want to observe small micro pores in the concrete after completion. Lightly spray water in a test area to confirm water absorbs immediately and darkens the concrete. Repeat etching process and increase dwell time to ensure optimum profiling if necessary.

4 of 5 EcoEtch Concrete Cleaner Works October 3, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Sanbornville, NH United States  
I will not say it works easily, but you do have to put some elbow into it, but it has no odor and does no harm to skin, so for that it is work the extra effort.

5 of 5 Completely satisfied August 21, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Greer, SC United States  
The concrete slab I was etching had a very smooth finish. I started with the recommended 50/50 mix, but decided to use it straight. The 50/50 mix worked but took longer of course. The product worked great, user friendly, no fumes, no danger of burns,  and just use water to neutralize. Just from the point of safety, it's worth the extra cost of this product.
