  2. Amazing work as always, Al!
  3. Gutter Zap stain on concrete?

    Did you get these rust stains out?
  4. First X-Jet job done...

    The X-Jet pulls via venture effect. You'll pull chems at 50% mixed at the tip. If you tried to get mine off the wand it's probably rusted on there and permanently attached... that's not from lack of use. It's from never taking it off!
  5. Rust stain on painted brick

    Acids like HCL or HF not good for that. F9 will work. The only colored stuff we need to be careful of is poorly mixed colored concrete or pavers that are not strong. They use iron oxides in the mix that can get pulled out of the substrate hydrated too quickly. A weak bond between color and surface can be pulled out.
  6. Rust stain on painted brick

    F9 on that all the way. 1:2 ratio, barely mist it on.. call me if you need further help. Easy.
  7. Rust stain on painted brick

    F9 will work for that. Use normal solution and a very light mist coat. It wont etch it like one restore.
  8. Rust stain on painted brick

    Ryan, so many variables here. Was it F9 you used or another chem?
  9. Rust stain on painted brick

    Excellent to hear. Nice job.
  10. Muratic shelf life

    I've heard muriatic (hydrochloric) should have a very long shelf life as long as the cap is on really tight and no vapors escape. Very long as in 10+ years!
  11. Carlos EBC and Craig F9 and others-Thoughts

    It's always good to not put all of your eggs in one basket. For F9, we have many target markets that can use the cleaner. With that said, my primary alliance is with keeping the product for professional application only. Whether this be through our F9 Professional Applicator network, contractors or maintenance department training. This keeps the product in the hands of the most capable companies and who are worth the time investment of training, technical seminars, online videos etc. Also, since I own a pressure washing business and it is something I thoroughly enjoy, I feel good about giving information and leads to companies who are truly appreciative of the information and receptive to learning new applications and techniques.

    HF can be dangerous stuff if not handled properly. F9 is not HF, does not contain any EPCRA section 313 chemicals, has no halogenated hydrocarbons, is biodegradable and will not bioaccumulate. I do agree that HF can make a great rust remover as well as Oxalic but users of these chems need to be aware of the dangers with unbuffered or uninhibited acids. When handling and using these types of chems, always wear an acid-gas respirator, gloves, boots, eye protection and full body protection. As usual and even when using any acid (or caustic) based chems we would recommend the use of rubber gloves, boots, eye protection and skin protection.

    I've been through them all too, which is what inspired me to keep working on F9 through the years. I can't tell you the 1000's of tweaks we've made to make this work for us and our environment. Our clients are very picky here and we've made them all very happy with our cleaning techniques and how clean we can get things. I'm glad we've come to a point where we can help others get the same results!
