Concrete Dissolver

Cemix Concrete Dissolver is a “mineral-acid” alternative with no sulfuric, muriatic, hydrochloric or phosphoric acids. It has no fumes and is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic and environmentally green liquid. It attacks the cement in concrete, completely dissolving the hardened concrete to a mushy substance that is rinseable with a high-pressure washer using normal tap water. It can be used to remove cured (hardened) cement, concrete, mortar, grout and any product containing cement. It contains no acid and will not harm painted surfaces, tools, metal surfaces, plastic surfaces, or any type of plants or vegetation. It is easily neutralized and diluted with water. It is fast acting but not instantaneous, so correct application of the liquid to the material is the key to success. It is a labor - saving product designed to be operator safe and to eliminate hammering, scraping and acid washing of tools, equipment, and building surfaces.
Prolonged exposure to paint or steel may result in surface damage. Always ensure a test area is carried out before doing the entire surface.
Typical Applications & Uses:
Cemix Concrete Dissolver is especially useful to dissolve hardened concrete on ready-mix trucks, vehicles, forms, moulds, joinery, bricks, wheel barrows, pumps, trowels, screeds, Concrete Saws, Slip-Form Pavers, Augers, and any place cement can come into contact with.
• Acidic in the way a lemon or orange is, but does not contain any acid.
• Biodegradable.
• Cleans tools without hammering or scraping.
• Easy to use.
• Water neutralized.

500ml, 5L & 20L


Apply Cemix® Concrete Dissolver with a mop, brush or sprayer. Allow to saturate for 10 – 15 minutes. The surface will turn white upon contact with Cemix® Concrete Dissolver, and then it will darken. If the surface dries, do not rinse. Reapply to reactivate as needed until concrete is softened to a mush. After concrete has softened, rinse with a high-pressure washer. On extremely thick build-up, repeat cleaning directions until build-up is softened. Do not wet surface before applying. Apply to dry surface for best results.
