PROSOCO's Sure Klean Thin Brick Cleaner is specifically made for removing excess mortar and grout from new installations of thin brick masonry. Since thin brick mortars and grouts are often modified with latex for extra water repellency, they can be hard for conventional brick cleaners to remove. Thin Brick Cleaner is specially made to dissolve the most stubborn latex mortars and grouts. The product also removes other common jobsite soiling, including oil, grease, efflorescence and dirt. Low-odor Thin Brick Cleaner uses no hydrochloric acid and is safe for cleaning around other architectural surfaces, including most metal. For more information, contact Gary Henry at 785-830-7343 or gary.henry@prosoco.com.
