BUY BRICK ACID
Brick Acid is the generic name for a number of strongly acidic products which can be used for brick cleaning, brick washing and brick etching purposes. Brick Acid is often available to purchase in a variety of strengths, depending upon the application for which it is intended. Brick Acid will comprise a strongly acidic solution capable of cleaning brickwork of floors and walls.
As with all strongly acidic solutions, Brick Acid should always be handled by competent persons who have thoroughly familiarised themselves with any associated risks or hazards. By its very nature, regular strength Brick Acid will be irritating to eyes, the respiratory system and the skin and should only be handled in well-ventilated areas by persons wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This might comprise safety boots or shoes, approved eye protection, safety clothing and acid-resistant gloves. Further details can be found on the pages of this website entitled Brick Acid Safety and Brick Acid Hazards.
Stronger solutions of Brick Acid, such as High Strength Brick Acid, cause serious burns to eyes and skin, with the potential of causing long-lasting or even permanent damage. Stronger solutions of Brick Acid may affect the pH of water and should therefore not be flushed to drain as they can cause harm to aquatic organisms. The manufacturers advice should always be sought and any Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) should be read before using a strong acid such as Brick Acid.
Brick Acid is effective at dissolving concrete residues left on brickwork and tiles but care must be taken to ensure that the material does not cause damage to the brickwork or tiles themselves. Brick Acid manufacturers often advise customers to dilute the Brick Acid solutions before application and manufacturers may offer guidance on the approximate optimum strength of solution to maximise eficiency whilst minimising the risk of any damage.
Brick Acid packaging and labelling requirements are governed by CHiP Regulations, whose full title is 'The Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2009' . These regulations apply up to 1 December 2010 but may continue to be used until 1 June 2015, as there is a crossover period of approximately 5 years. After 1 December 2010, Brick Acid packaging and labelling requirements are regulated by CLP Regulations (EC) Number 1272/2008 and either CHiP or CLP format may be used up to 1 June 2015, but the formats may not be mixed.
