Frequently Asked Questions

Are There Different Types or Levels of Acid Washing?

Yes, there are 3 different levels of Acid Washing. A light Acid Wash is just enough to lightly clean the surface and open the concrete enough to apply Sealer. A medium Acid Wash is just enough to expose some of the fine sands in the concrete. A hard Acid Wash or Acid Etch creates full exposure of the sand content in the concrete. This hard wash is good for non-slip purposes or for a 'burnt' look to coloured decorative concrete.
