Cleaning of GRC – Premix & Spray

The composition of the material provides good retention of the supplied appearance. However, if the components do require cleaning the following is a suggested order of appropriate procedures:

  • Wet the unit and scrub the area with a stiff brush, rinse off with clean water
  • Use a jet wash to remove marks
  • Use a mild acid wash - scrub the whole of the unit not just the localised area

Should you have any further questions or concerns please ring our GRC Technical Department on 01302 720553.
