Whether you’re looking to fix a sidewalk laying hatch job or need to get the hardened concrete off your tools, you’re going to need a concrete dissolver. In this article, we’ll talk about what a professional dissolver is, how it works, and where you can find one.
Concrete vs. Cement
Before we take a deeper dive into how this specific type of dissolver works, we’ll first need to understand the substance we are trying to dissolve: concrete. This composite substance consists of the following materials:
- Aggregate (rocks, sand, crushed stone, etc.)
- Portland cement
It’s important to note that cement is found in a concrete mixture, and the two terms are not interchangeable. Cement is a fine powder most commonly made from limestone and other minerals and is a result of the heating of these materials. It is also what helps hold all the materials within the concrete together.
What is a Concrete Dissolver?
A concrete dissolver works to break apart and dissolve this porous substance by targeting the cement found within the substance. This type of dissolver tends to consist of acidic chemicals that attack the glue-like characteristics of cement and turn it into mush. Once the surface has taken on a mush-like consistency, then the person dissolving it can scrape it away with the use of the proper tools.
The quickness of the dissolving process and the amount of toxic and acidic chemicals found within the solution are two examples of characteristics that can vary from brand to brand.
