Provide protection for window glass, aluminum frames, painted surfaces, 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, provide 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 for each type of masonry surface and should involve the worst area of soiling. When possible, the test area should be left to age for 10 or more days to determine if there are any latent reactions that might require a modification of the cleaning methods or use of another ShoreBest product.
Dilution and Coverage
Dilution: Varies dependent on the surface, porosity of the surface, degree of soiling and stains, etc. Initial recommended dilution is 3 to 10 parts water to 1 part product. Test application is highly recommended to determine dilution rate and appropriate dwell time. Optimum dwell time and dilution rate may change with weather conditions.
Coverage: Dependent upon substrate and other conditions.
Read SDS and product label for proper safety equipment. Thoroughly pre-wet / soak the surface prior to the application of the properly diluted cleaner. Apply the diluted cleaner with either acid brushes or low pressure spray. Spray application should not be done at pressures greater than 40 psi. Leave the cleaner on the surface for the appropriate time as determined during testing. Do not let the cleaner dry on the surface. Scrubbing with stiff masonry brushes may be beneficial in some cases. After the predetermined dwell time has passed, rinse surface with a quick with a quick low pressure rinse. This is necessary to remove excess cleaner and stop the reaction. This also allows excess cleaner to safely run down surface. Then re- move the loosened dirt with pressure rinsing equipment that provides a minimum flow rate of 3.5 gallons per minute and offers a series of fan tips not narrower than 15 degrees in width and up to 45 degrees in width. Avoid the use of “laser” tips and other pressure acceleration tips. Always be aware of cleaner drift during application and rinsing to avoid possible damage.
Fatal in contact with skin. Toxic if inhaled. Causes severe skin burns and eye damage.
