Mortar Clean A
cleaning solution for cement and brickwork
Mortar Clean is a
strong cleaner for the removal of mortar and
cement stains from brickwork, paving, tiles and
It is useful for
removing soot and rust stains from brickwork as
well as efflorescence and other salt deposits on
any form of masonry and for cleaning cement
Clean is very reactive in contact with calcium
silicate and coloured concrete and will dissolve
iron oxide pigments. We therefore suggest that a
small trial area be treated using Mortar Clean
diluted with water and should be examined
thoroughly before cleaning the whole area.
At no time should
undiluted Mortar Clean be allowed to come into
contact with calcium silicate or coloured
concrete bricks, concrete which contains

to be cleaned should be thoroughly wetted first
to reduced the absorption of the chemical.
Mortar Clean should then be applied either by
low pressure pneumatic spray or brush as
appropriate, scrubbing well into the surface
until the desired effect is produced.
Mortar Clean may be used straight from the
container or diluted with water as conditions
dictate. Generally, a dilution of one part

When in doubt,
use diluted solution first to test a small area
thus to ensure that the solution will not attack
the surface itself.
Mortar Clean dissolves calcium carbonate based
products and therefore Terrazzo, Marble and
lime/Silicate bricks will actually dissolve if
A diluted solution (one part to four parts
water) may be tried in a small area, but extreme
caution is recommended on such surfaces. If
there is any indication that the test area is
being attacked, then wash off with copious
quantities of clean water and try a weaker
application, the cleaned surface should be
washed down well with copious quantities of
clean water. Do not allow the surface to dry out
before washing off.
SAFETY AND PRECAUTIONS
Mortar Clean active ingredient is
classified as an irritant.
Mortar Clean will attack ferrous and non-ferrous
metals, i.e. copper, galvanised iron and zinc
plate, stainless steel, anodised aluminum, fin

In some instances, i.e. spraying, brushing above
one's head where bristles cause flicking,
goggles or face visor is recommended. When used
indoors ensure adequate ventilation. When
diluted, the effects are minimised. Clothing
will become marked from splashes and nylon
material will dissolve.
