Bostik Brick & Patio Cleaner is designed to clean and remove light cement and mortar stains from patio areas, concrete, tiles, brickwork and many metals including some tools and dismantled pipework.
Important: Do not apply to or near painted enamel, stainless steel, decorative brass or aluminium. This cleaner gives off acidic fumes which can discolour metal or decorative surfaces. Hydrochloric acid dissolves calcium carbonate materials i.e. marble, terrazzo, lime/silicate, limestone and cement based paving. Test on a small, concealed area with dilute cleaner and examine carefully before proceeding to clean the whole area. The test area should be examined after 24 hours as the effect on artificial or coloured stones is not immediately noticeable. If there is any indication that the acid is attacking the surface, wash the surface immediately with plenty of water. When used on pigmented concrete some colour loss may occur. Do not use a jet or power washer to rinse off cleaner. Do not mix with any other chemicals. Not for interior use. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with product.
