Test Area
All projects should start with a test application to determine the suitability of the cleaner, acceptable application method and possible dilution and dwell time. Begin by soaking the surface to be cleaned with water prior to application of ProClean CL-5200 Rust & Stain Remover. Soaking the surface prior to application of the product is designed to reduce the penetration of the cleaner where it is not wanted and to keep it on the surface where it is needed. The final determination of product acceptance should not be made until the test area has become dry in order to check for possible adverse reactions.

In most cases, ProClean CL-5200 Rust & Stain Remover can be used dilution with 1 to 3 parts water or full-strength. For more information visit

Agitate with either stiff masonry brush, brass brush or power washer when removing heavy deposits. Care should be exercised in the selection of tips and pressures to avoid doing damage to the surface.
