Surfaces to take care with- Concrete - UNLESS YOU WANT TO CLEAN OR ETCH IT, Anodised Aluminium, Zinc & Galvanised steel - these can easily be managed by not leaving on for too long and sufficient rinsing with water, a test patch is always advised
CONCRETE, MORTAR SMEAR, CALCIUM & LIME: Mechanically remove heavy buildup with a scraper or other suitable method, lightly wet areas you are planning on cleaning, apply Viper & leave for 30-60 seconds not allowing the product to dry, use a pressure cleaner for the best result or agitate with brushing & water, thoroughly rinse all areas with water once cleaned.
TILE GROUT: Remove hardened excess grout with scrapers or other, find the mix ratio that works best, apply Viper to approx 5sqm at a time or to an area that you can rinse before the product dries, leave for a few minutes, agitate with a hard bristle brush if required, mop or pressure clean area, if mopping you may need to mop a few times with clean water as Viper can leave an organic residue, this is easily cleaned with refreshed water & mopping.
EFFLORESCENCE: Remove excess salts with dry brushing, mark or make note of the area to be treated, mix Viper 3:1 with water and apply lightly with a broom or chemical resistant pressure sprayer, lightly spray the area to be treated and leave to biodegrade naturally, heavy build-up may need a stronger mix, salts can return, just retreat.
CLEANING TOOLS & RUST:Mechanically remove excess concrete or rust off tools or metal surface, use undiluted or 2:1 and apply to areas to be cleaned, leave for 1-2 minutes, clean with fresh water **remember clean metal will rust**
ETCHING OR CLEANING CONCRETE: Ensure area is swept and washed to leave clean concrete, lightly wet area and remove POOLING water with a squeegee, test an unseen area, use undiluted or 1:1, apply Viper evenly and don't allow product to dry, hard bristle broom if possible, pressure clean for best results or agitate with brushing & water, thoroughly rinse all areas once cleaned.
