SCL-LIME REMOVER is formulated to remove white salt weeping from the edge of the joints between stone. The white deposit is a build-up of salts. These salts are known in the tile industry as “lime putty” or “lime deposit” coming up from the setting bed. The salts will return and will need to be cleaned when this occurs. The white deposits on the surface are the result of no waterproofing membrane installation or poor installation practices.
SCL-Lime Remover is an acid-based cleaner but yet it gently dissolves the lime without eating into the stone; unlike other acid cleaners required to be very acidic to remove the lime. From our extensive research and experiences into stains analysis and stone care, the formulation of SCL-Lime Remover ensures that the cleaning effectiveness is maintained while bringing out the best from the stone.
Application on the type of stone: All types of natural stone and man-made tiles, except on polished surface marble.
Direction to use:
No dilution, just pour and saturate the “lime putty” with SCL Lime Remover for 5 to 10 minutes. When the lime is dissolved by the chemical, use SCL-Black Scrubbing Pad gently scrub away the lime. Big chunk of lime required a scraper.
