Preparation

General Preparation
Protect adjacent and surrounding surfaces not intended to be stripped. Cover foliage with polyethylene or other proven protective material.

Surface and Air Temperatures
Excessively high or low temperatures will produce poor results. Best cleaning results are obtained when air and surface temperatures are 40째 F or above. Do not clean when temperatures are below freezing or will be overnight. If freezing conditions exist, allow adequate time for surface to thaw. If air temperatures exceed 90째 F, flash cool the surface with water before applying product. 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
Use full strength on very heavy silicate sealer. Apply straight (undiluted). Let product dwell for 20 minutes, then pressure wash off. Do not allow product to dry. To test if all of the sealer has been removed, let dry, and apply water droplets. If they bead, repeat the process. If the water sheets and penetrates, you may begin the restoration process.
