Concentrated Concrete Cleaner
Clean and Profile Concrete in a Single Step
Durável ECP is a concentrated combination of detergents, degreasers and acids used to clean and profile unsealed concrete substrates in preparation for overlayments, stains, and coatings.
Durával ECP™ – Don’t Just Clean Your Concrete… Durável It!
Durável ECP can also be used to clean sealed surfaces in preparation for a fresh coat of sealer. The product is safer to use than muriatic acids, and when diluted with rinse water will not harm most plants or aquatic life. Using Durável ECP also saves labor cost as there is no need to neutralize the substrate following preparation work.
Chemical concrete preparation solution used on
- Interior and exterior concrete
- Driveways, walks and patios
- Entrances and store fronts
- Porches and balconies
- Safer than muriatic acids
- Clean and profile in a single step
- Saves labor cost
- Cleans and profiles concrete
- Pleasant odor
- Concentrated formula provides a wide range of uses
Usage will vary with application. Typically, one diluted gallon of product will clean and profile 250-300 square feet of concrete.
Dilute with potable water. Pre-measure water and Durável ECP prior to mixing. Always add Durável ECP to the water to minimize the risk of splashing and harm. Tighten container lids after each use. For general cleaning use more water, for more aggressive cleaning use less water. Typical dilution rates are:
- General Cleaning, four parts water to one part ECP (4:1)
- Precast Concrete and laitance removal from new concrete, three parts water to one part ECP (3:1)
- Normal cleaning and etching prior to overlays and sealers, two parts water to one part ECP (2:1)
- For difficult stains or maximum etching may be used undiluted
Always perform a test in an inconspicuous area to ensure that the surface is not damaged by the cleaning process before proceeding.
Remove excess dirt and contaminants from the surface prior to use of ECP to increase effectiveness.
Exterior: Remove dirt and other contaminants using a pressure washer fitted with a zero-degree rotating “turbo tip” nozzle. If substrate is dry, dampen with a mist of water and continue wetting as needed during product application. Apply blended product via pump-up sprayer or trigger sprayer. While product is wet agitate the surface with a push broom or brush, then use pressure washer to rinse thoroughly clean. Do not allow the product to dry on the surface prior to rinsing. Protect adjacent surfaces, as needed.
Interior: Remove dirt and other contaminants by appropriate means. If substrate is dry, dampen with a mist of water and continue wetting as needed during product application. Apply blended product via pump-up sprayer or trigger sprayer. While product is wet agitate the surface with a push broom, brush, rotational floor scrubber, or auto scrubber. Use plenty of water to thoroughly rinse, remove rinse water using floor squeegees, wet-dry vacuum or auto scrubber. Do not allow the product to dry on the surface prior to rinsing. Protect adjacent surfaces as needed.
Do not use on metals, especially on aluminum. Product may produce flammable hydrogen gas if applied to aluminum, particularly aluminum foil. Product will damage stainless steel, galvanized metal, and magnesium.
