    Got a call from a friend that has some poured concrete. This was stamped and colored with a topical powder. His well leaked and it has rust stains from it on top of the concrete.

    What product would work to remove the rust, and NOT the color? He wants me to clean this for him so he can get the concrete sealed now.

    Again, he does NOT want any of the color to be bleached or removed.

    Sure did, thanks Kip.

    Colored concrete can be a delicate situation depending on the pour, the pigments used and the type of rust formed. Do you know if the color used to pigment the concrete had acrylic in it? Was it a colored sealer or a powder?

    You will have the best chance going in using F9 BARC. If you can, send some pics to my cell at 760-774-5306.

    Irrigation stains are on the "easier" scale of rust removal restoration because of the simple chemical make up. What I'll need to see is how built up the rust is to make sure we go about it the right way.

    Take a look at the gallery pages at front9restoration.com... Rust is one of our biggest niches

    Thanks
    Craig

    Thanks @Craig Harrison .

    I don;t know if it is acrylic but I do know it was a powdered color. I'll get some pictures and text them to you late this afternoon. Thanks for the help!

    That stuff works great. I ended up buying a whole case of the stuff. Here's what I used it on. MosqueMarblejob009_zps074cb8ce.jpg

    That looks great, Johnny. Did you use the F9 and a power washer? I have several clients that have rust outside their store fronts that NEED this service!

    I only used F9 to remove the rust. I did have to do a little polishing of the marble to remove the etch marks left by the F9. But on concrete you won't even have to do that. On the concrete I just sprayed F9 on it and the rust went away.

    Colored concrete's not a problem as long as you do a test first to see how much chem it can handle.

    Here are some application videos. These are a must watch if you are going to use F9 for the first time.
