Product Details

Powerful gel formula jointing compound & grout residue remover

Floorseal Jointing Compound Residue Remover is a powerful residue & stripping gel for the removal of brush in compound residues and resin-based grout residues. With time this residue remover will also remover certain kinds of polymer based top coat sealers.

Brush in style compounds or resin grouts based slurry grouts can be very difficult to remove. Floorseal Jointing Compound Residue Remover is a powerful stripper gel formulated to remove resins & polymers. Apply the gel and allow it to soften the resin over a period of at least 20 minutes before thoroughly rinsing off. During the 20 minute dwell time we recommend agitating the gel with a stiff brush. Do not allow the coating to dry out during this time, apply more of the product, or a little water, to prevent this happening.

This product is specifically for removing visible mistakes made with brush in compounds and resin based outdoor slurry based grouts. It will remove light hazings to natural stone and porcelains. Dwell time is key to allowing the product time to soften the resin before full removal. Using a hot pressure washer in conjunction with the residue remover can spped the removal process considerably.

Work in small areas of approximately 5m2 before moving on to a new section. Do not apply to large areas at once as this is likely to lead to failure.
