QuickEtch Etching Solution

Say good-bye to muriatic acid etching and all it’s problems! NewLook QuickEtch is a biodegradable concrete etching compound specially designed to etch concrete floors, both green (fresh) and mature concrete. The depth of the concrete etching achieved with this product is the same as hydrochloric or muriatic acid with 80% less odor and a more uniform etch than liquid concrete etching materials.

Biodegradable Solution to Etch Concrete Floors

QuickEtch is safer to use than hydrochloric or muriatic acid. Use when you need a deep etch and are not able to use a grinder. Thoroughly flush, pressure wash and/or neutralize the surface with an alkaline solution such as baking soda. QuickEtch is a solution that provides no dust compared with sandblasting, grinding or shotblasting. (QuickEtch is NOT to be used as a cleaner; Rather, use 3in1 Prep as an exfoliating concrete cleaner, etcher and degreaser.) 

Use QuickEtch with Modello’s easy to-use decorative masking stencils to etch a non-slip decorative concrete pattern. The longer you leave QuickEtch on the suface, the deeper the etch. Want to learn how to etch concrete floors? Join us at a product demo training.
