Discrete Concrete Remover

$27.50$7,260.00 (incl. tax)

Discrete is an advance in the chemistry of removing cement and grout residues from concrete mixing and transportation equipment, newly laid tiled flooring and a variety of surfaces affected by cement splash on the construction site. It has been developed to overcome the traditional hazards associated with the acidic solutions normally used to remove cementicous based residues on metals.

Discrete is an advance in the chemistry of removing cement and grout residues from concrete mixing and transporting equipment, newly laid tiled flooring and a variety of surfaces affected by cement splash on the construction site.

This human and environmentally safe cleaning product is used in and around the mining, machinery and concrete industries and sites Australia wide.

Some of the sites that are using Discrete Concrete Remover are Olympic Dam, Lady Loretta Mine, Mt Isa, North Parkes, Cadia, Mineral Hill and many more Australia Wide.​

FAQs

What is the chemical make-up of Discrete Concrete Remover? A low pH organic salt blended with biodegradable wetting agents. Discrete is based on acid-replacement technology and although low in pH does not contain traditional acids such as Hydrofluoric, Hydrochloric, Sulfuric, Nitric, Citric, Sulphamic, Oxalic and Glycolic.

How does Discrete Concrete Remover work? This proprietary formulation uses newly researched acid-replacement technology where the organic salt, being low in pH, acts like an acid in the cleaning process but has none of the characteristics associated with acid cleaners. This provides the user with all the cement residue removal power they need without the associated dangers of using an acid such as acid burns, fuming and dangerous goods transportation and storage.

Will Discrete Concrete Remover cause corrosion? Discrete displays a dramatically improved corrosive profile to traditional acid cleaners in respect of both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. When used as directed, negligible corrosion occurs and even when used undiluted the level of corrosion to ferrous metals is almost undetectable. However, it should be remembered that Discrete has a low pH and corrosion will occur on metals submerged in Discrete for extended periods.

What should I keep away from Discrete? The way Discrete works are to undo a natural bonding process. This is why it destroys the bonding of concrete so well. However, galvanised steel forms similarly and therefore can be affected by Discrete. Luckily, it is very rare that anything on your Agitator truck will be made of galvanised steel. Just don’t get overspray on the skip bin beside you!

What is the recommended Discrete-to-water ratio? The recommended ratio of Discrete to water is 1:4-9 parts. (you can use more concentration if there is a build-up of concrete on your truck)

What Our Customers Say

We have been using Discrete at Lachlan Ready Mix for a number of years. We have 7 trucks all working in a harsh environment and we are very pleased with the product

Tim

Director, Lachlan Ready Mix

Discrete has worked well removing concrete from our grout pumps, mixer pumps and bowls. We use it to maintain a high standard of scheduled maintenance.

Wayne

Underground Service Crew Leader, North Parkes Mine

We found Discrete to be more effective in removing the build-up of grime and cement on our vehicles and machinery than the acid based cleaner we used previously.
