OneRestore Gel®

 


 

Gelled Restoration Cleaner

Description and Use

Removes dimensional pollution stains
Restores soft stone such as bluestone and slate to original color
OneRestore Gel will clean many stainless steel stains better than OneRestore
Removes white scum from very porous brick

Advantages
Removes virtually all stains including mineral and metal oxide
Gelling increases dwell times when removing heavily stained or crusted surfaces.
Reduces liability
Cleans multiple substrates
Excellent for limestone, sandstone and brick
VOC compliant

Limitations
Gelling inhibits initial activity on glass and anodized aluminum but aggressiveness may
   increase over an extended period.
Do not use on polished marble and metallic oxide film used for tinting glass.
Not suitable for certain low-fire tiles when using an extended dwell time (always pre-test small area first).
Do not allow product to dry on surface, always rinse thoroughly.
Not recommended for restoring antique glass, brass, copper or bronze.

Preparation

General Preparation
Protect anodized aluminum and foliage with polyethylene or other proven protective material. Avoid wind drift on surrounding surfaces such as auto and pedestrian traffic. Generally glass does not need to be covered if rinsed quickly.

Surface and Air Temperatures
Excessively high or low temperatures will produce poor results. Best cleaning results are obtained when air and masonry surface temperatures are 40° F or above. Do not clean when temperatures are below freezing or will be overnight. If freezing conditions exist, allow adequate time for masonry to thaw. If air temperatures exceed 90° F, flash cool the surface with water before applying detergent. Do not allow product to dry on a hot surface.

Pre-Testing
Always test prior to beginning full-scale cleaning operations. Testing should confirm cleaning effectiveness on each type of surface and stain designated to be removed. Testing also determines the desired dwell time and any potential for adverse reactions with adjacent materials. Allow test panels to dry thoroughly before evaluating final appearance and results.

Dilutions
Use undiluted (straight)

Application

General Application
Pre-wet (do not soak) surfaces prior to applying product. Recommended application is with a low pressure sprayer or brush. Applying with a brush means less run down. Scrubbing with a brush is not required to agitate. Spraying product will dramatically reduce application costs and increase square foot coverage by taking advantage of the run down. Allow product to dwell on the surface between fifteen minutes up to three hours, depending on the severity of the stain and the porosity of the surface. OneRestore Gel will be neutralized by many of the surfaces. The safety of the “Ultimate Urban High Rise” procedure can be achieved with a pre-rinse application of Cleansol BC diluted at 50:1. Craftsmanship determines the appropriate pressures for rinsing. A thorough rinse job is always recommended, however, our chemistry never requires flooding a wall. Pressures that mark or damage the surface should be avoided. When in doubt, follow the manufacturers recommended P.S.I. for the substrate on which you are working. Use lower rinse pressures when cleaning sensitive substrates. Extended dwell time is very important when using this product safely.

Do not allow product to dry on the surface. Always rinse thoroughly while wet.

Coverage Rates
Coverage rates vary from 75 – 175 sq. ft. per gallon depending on the surface porosity, texture and severity of staining.

Suitable Substrates
Slate, limestone, sandstone, granite, unpolished marble, bluestone, synthetic stone, terrazzo, stucco Always test product in a small area first before beginning entire project.

Stain Removal
Vanadium, manganese, metal or mineral oxide stains, pollution stains, caulk bleed, water hardness stains.

Safety Information

Precautionary Measures
Always wear goggles and rubber gloves when handling this product. Do not get in eyes, on skin or clothing. If material comes in contact with clothing, wash before reuse. The product contains Hydrochloric Acid. Avoid breathing fumes. Use adequate ventilation. Though the potential for fuming of OneRestore Gel is minimal, take precautions to avoid exposing building occupants to fumes above permissible exposure limits (PEL) for product. Keep container closed after handling. Applicators should wear a rain suit (plastic, rubber, or PVC), boots, gloves, face shields and/or goggles to avoid splash to bare skin and eyes. Avoid drifting of material or rinse water on autos and pedestrians by protecting or diverting such traffic. Do not dilute OneRestore Gel. Do not use for any other applications other than specified. Dispose of any empty containers according to federal, state, and local requirements. Do not remove label. Read Material Safety Data Sheet for additional safety and health hazard information prior to use.

Spill or Leak Procedures
Check with the state, local, or federal regulations for waste disposal methods in the area. Wear proper protective equipment while doing cleanup. For large spills, dike and contain for intended use. For small spills, use a chemical absorbent product and place in approved container for disposal.

Container Handling/Storage
Store the product in a cool dry place away from alkali/base. Do not allow this product to freeze. Vent bung cap before opening. Keep container tightly closed when not in use. Wash thoroughly after handling. Empty containers retain residue and vapors and must be handled as if full. Completely rinse drum prior to disposal.
