CLEANERS

Note: A new or old surface that is being prepared for staining may have any number of ‘known’ or ‘unknown’ contaminants. Preparing the concrete for staining may then become somewhat of a “trial and error” proposition as there are many products on the market that claim to do certain things. The following compilation of stripping and emulsifying products may be of assistance in removing those difficult contaminants, however, every customer must check into products to be used as to their capabilities, whether they can be used in the customer’s geographical area, and whether the use of the product is compatible with the stain and the coatings to be used. Kemiko Concrete Products is aware that the following products have been successfully used by laypersons and professional floor applicators, but Kemiko does not endorse the outcome of the products listed below.
