Consolideck® Oil & Grease Stain Remover is a poultice cleaner for pulling stubborn oil and grease stains out of concrete. Just pour Oil & Grease Stain Remover on the embedded stain. It spreads out to make an instant poultice – no mixing, troweling, plastic covering or tape needed.
As the poultice dries, it pulls the contaminants out of the substrate, capturing them in its highly absorbent blend of batter-thick surfactants, solvents and powders. After a 5-8 hour dwell, simply sweep up the dried poultice and its absorbed contaminants for easy disposal.

Specifier Note: Paragraphs below are for PART 3 EXECUTION, Installation.
Before applying, read “Preparation” and “Safety Information” sections in the Manufacturer’s Product Data Sheet for Oil & Grease Stain Remover. Use in concentrate. Do not dilute.
Scrape debris and buildup from surface. Do not pre-wet.
Shake well. Pour onto the oil-stained surface until it completely covers the stain. The batter-thick poultice will automatically reach its required thickness as it spreads out across the stain.
Let the poultice dry for 5-8 hours overnight. Protect from pedestrian traffic and rain during dwell period. Regarding rain protection, a plastic “tent” over the poultice will allow proper drying. Avoid using tightly adhered plastic covers. Dry times may vary with environmental conditions such as temperature, wind and humidity. The poultice surface develops cracks as it contracts and dries. A fully developed network of cracks indicates the poultice is completely dry.
Sweep up the dry powder and dispose. On porous substrates, pressure water rinsing may facilitate removal of poultice dust.
Most oil and grease stains can be cleaned with one application. Severe, deeply embedded stains may redevelop after cleaning, requiring further applications.
Brush out brooms and wipe down dustpans with a damp cloth. High-pressure air may also be used to remove dust residues from brooms, brushes and dustpans.
