Overview

The Coo-Var Acid Etch is a special blend of acids and wetting agents that can be used to clean and 'etch' concrete and mortared floors. Also ideal for use on smooth surfaces such as power-floated concrete floors as it creates a 'key' and prepares the surface for painting when blasting and mechanical abrasion are not practical. It will remove all laitance and salts from concrete and renders. Simply use it as a diluted solution.

FAQ's

Q. Why use Coo-Var Acid Etch?

A. Acid etching is often used to prepare surfaces for painting, coating, or bonding. The etching process roughens the surface, which enhances the adhesion of subsequent layers or materials. For example, in the automotive industry, acid etching is used to prepare car bodies before applying primers and paints.
