CLEANERS & REMOVERS

TED™

Downloads and Related Information

The efflorescence destroyer. Removes efflorescence and rust marks from porous materials, including stone, concrete, brick and grout.

Benefits of TED™

  • Highly concentrated formulation. Contains 50 to 60% Urea Hydrochloride
  • Powerful but much lower fuming than hydrochloric acid.
  • Effectively removes mineral residues, including efflorescence, grout haze, rust marks, soap scum, limescale, mortar mess.
  • Acidic Cleaner can also be used for removing fireplace soot.
  • Temporary contact does not immediately burn skin – you have some time to rinse off the Acidic Cleaner (however, rinse immediately after skin contact).
  • Almost no corrosion of metals, except aluminium.

 

HOW TO USE

  1. Read Product Data Sheet and Material Safety Data Sheet before using.
  2. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection.
  3. TEST PRODUCT ON A SMALL AREA TO CHECK ACID SENSITIVITY BEFORE FULL APPLICATION.
  4. If satisfied with test results, remove all loose dust and dirt from the surface.
  5. Apply when surface temperature is 5 to 35 °C (40 – 95 °F).
  6. Pre-wet very porous surfaces with water to prevent cleaner penetrating too deeply.
  7. TED™ is highly concentrated and must be diluted with clean water. Recommended dilutions:
    • Efflorescence, rust marks – 1 part TED™ to 10 parts water
    • Grout haze, limescale, soap scum – 1 part TED™ to 20 parts water
  8. Pour, brush or spray mixed solution generously onto surface and leave for 3 minutes.
  9. Do not allow solution to dry on surface.
  10. Clean large areas in sections.
  11. Rub with a white nylon scrub pad, or similar, to clean the surface.
  12. TED™ is highly acidic and must be neutralized before rinsing: Use Oxitec-M™ or dissolve 1 cup of bicarbonate of soda in a bucket of water. Pour, spray over the entire surface and leave for minimum 3 minutes.
  13. Rinse surface thoroughly several times with clean water.
    NOTE: TED™ is highly acidic and will etch acid sensitive materials such as marble, limestone, travertine and onyx. Concrete should be wet before applying TED™ and neutralized immediately afterwards to minimize damage.
