Provide protection for foliage and pedestrian traffic. Test all non-masonry surfaces for possible negative reaction. Shut off all ventilation intakes, close all other entrances to the structure and provide protection to ensure that no cleaner enters the structure during application and rinsing of the surface. Protect all surrounding areas from possible damage, which might occur from spillage or spray during usage. All projects should start with a test application to determine the suitability of the cleaner, acceptable application methods and dilution ratio. Test areas of at least ten square feet are recommended and should involve the worst area of soiling. When possible, the test area should be left to age for 10 or more days to check for possible adverse reactions.
Dilution and Coverage
Dilution: 4 to 8 parts water to 1 part product — test application recommended.
Coverage: Dependent upon substrate and other conditions.
Soak the surface to be cleaned with water prior to the applica- tion of the properly diluted cleaner. Soaking the surface prior to application of the product is designed to reduce the penetration of the cleaner where it is not wanted and to keep it on the surface where it is needed. Start with the weakest dilution ratio and test until an acceptable dilution is determined for the project. Apply the diluted cleaner with either acid brushes or a low-pressure sprayer. Spray application should never be done at pressures greater than 40 psi. Leave the cleaner on the surface for up to 10 minutes, scrub with a stiff masonry brush, remove heavy smears with a wood paddle and remove the cleaner and contaminants with either a hose or pressure washer. When using a pressure washer, pressures of 600 to 800 psi are recommended. Care must be exercised to avoid driving the cleaner into the surface, creating a condition where complete removal is not possible. Avoid using wands equipped with “laser” or other tips that might
cause damage to the surface. In all cases, a thorough rinsing is required.
SB 2020 Detergent Masonry Cleaner GP is for use by professional contractors only. High strength mortars and mortar that is left on the surface for more than 60 days may be difficult to remove or may not be removed at all. Test for use on metallic sensitive clay masonry as SB 2030 New Masonry Cleaner V/M may be more suited. SB 2020 is not recommended for use on colored CMU as removal of some of the colored cement paste can be expected. Glazed or polished surfaces are not acceptable for cleaning. Test prior to use.
