Guard Remover® Eco Efflorescence & Cement, by Guard Industry, is the efflorescence remover you’ve been looking for. This cleaning product quickly removes efflorescence, cement, concrete and tartar deposits. Yet it is mild enough that it will not damage underlying surfaces.
Strong acids are the basis for traditional cement and efflorescence removers. These products are cheap, but nasty! Strong acids can cause all kinds of damage. They are dangerous to use and can cause serious injury to the user. Plus they will quickly corrode any metal surfaces.
Strong acids penetrate deep into porous surfaces. As such, they are almost impossible to completely remove. Even with proper neutralisation processes. These absorbed acids will dissolve minerals in the substrate which will leach to the surface in time. Quite often, this creates worse problems such as iron (orange), vanadium (green), and manganese (black/blue) staining. Or even fresh efflorescence! What’s the point of an efflorescence remover that creates more efflorescence? Further, salts left behind from acid reactions cause additional problems. In particular chlorides can cause salt spall and even cause concrete cancer.
Guard Remover® Eco Efflorescence & cement is a new generation product that is significantly less hazardous than other products available in the market. Indeed, Guard Remover® Eco is not classified as either corrosive or an irritant. This cleaner has been designed in response to the increasing demands of users in terms of safety, eﬀectiveness, impact on the environment and protection of treated substrates.
Guard Remover® Eco does not require neutralisation after rinsing. So you get a quicker turn around, less risk and better results.
