R11 Efflorescence Remover Concentrate

Efflorescence appears as white deposits on brickwork, mortar, patios and driveways. The deposit can be a mixture of calcium carbonate, sulphates and chlorides, and also sodium chloride particularly with clay paving.

Overview

Efflorescence appears as white deposits on brickwork, mortar, patios and driveways. The deposit can be a mixture of calcium carbonate, sulphates and chlorides, and also sodium chloride particularly with clay paving. The salts come from those naturally occurring in the substrate, also from the free lime carbonisation as it comes to the surface.

Most chemical treatments are a mixture of strong acids. These can however affect the surface colour, reacting pigments within the substrate. They may remove the surface efflorescence however they open the surface pores, allowing the efflorescence process to continue, and the white salt deposits return.

Dirt Defence Efflorescence remover is a blend of synergistic organic compounds, surfactants and other activators
