Use Aqua Mix Eff-Ex Efflorescence Remover to completely remove and prevent white mineral residue or efflorescence from your natural stone, marble, granite, slate, travertine, limestone, porcelain, quarry, Saltillo, terra cotta, cement pavers, masonry surfaces
and other porous tile and grout that needs color restoration. To combat built-up efflorescence, Eff-Ex uses a non-acidic (pH 7.4) heavy-duty cleaning solution with zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for a thorough clean without compromising the indoor or outdoor air quality where you're working. Aqua Mix Eff-Ex should not be used on polished marble, polished limestone or polished travertine. Each gallon of Eff-Ex covers approximately 30 to 125 square feet (3 to 12 square meters).
If efflorescence appears after a surface is sealed, Eff-Ex will remove the efflorescence but its ability to inhibit efflorescence is reduced.
- Removes and inhibits efflorescence
- No VOCs for better indoor and outdoor air quality
- For indoor/outdoor use
- Eff-Ex will lightly dull the surface of polished marble, limestone and travertine, so repolishing may be needed.
- Safety data: Eff-Ex MSDS
