In order to remove cement and mortar residues, acidic cleaners are required. Simply “covering” these residues with oil or wax based products is not a real solution because the residues will reappear on the surface. Restoring such surfaces then becomes a complex task.
Lithofin CEMENT-AWAY is based on a composition of special acids and cleaning components. This time-tested combination has proven to be the ideal product for many cleaning requirements of the professional user.

Field of use:
Universally usable after tile laying, during fabrication, for cleaning facades and wherever else ceramic tiles and stone must be thoroughly cleaned. Lithofin CEMENT-AWAY is preferably used outdoors and at the installation site during construction.

Technical Data:
Density: 1,12 g/cm³
pH-Value: Appearance: clear, yellowish
Odour: almond-like
Solubility in Water: very good

Lithofin CEMENT-AWAY effortlessly removes surface residues such as mortar and cement, efflorescences, encrusted and engrained dirt, rust as well as calcium and limescale deposits.

Suitable for all acid resistant surfaces such as ceramic tiles, brick, clay and quarry tiles, terracotta, concrete and many natural stones.
Please Note: not suitable for polished and finely honed limestone and marble as well as engineered stone. Iron containing natural stones such as serizzo can develop
yellow discolouration (rust) and should therefore rather be treated with Lithofin MN Builder’s Clean to avoid this effect.
For indoor use, we recommend Lithofin KF Cement Residue Remover for ceramics and Lithofin MN Builder’s Clean for natural stones.

Directions for use:
Dilute Lithofin CEMENT-AWAY up to 1:20 with water and apply it to the wet surface. Allow the product to work briefly, then rinse with plenty of clear water.
Please Note: always test the product in an inconspicuous area prior to use. Lithofin CEMENT-AWAY is not suitable for surfaces acid sensitive surfaces such as enamel, zinc, chrome, stainless steel, polished marble and limestone, certain decorative tiles, lacquer, etc. Sensitive materials can be damaged by vapours. Ensure good ventilation during and after use, and ensure that no vapours remain in the room.

Approx. 10 to 30m²/ltr depending on the kind and stubbornness of the deposits.
