Concrete slab contamination is a vexing issue for remodeling & renovation contractors, flooring contractors, facility owners, maintenance engineers and risk management officers.
Until now, the only reliable solution was to demolish the contaminated concrete and replace it with a new concrete slab. Obviously, the "Jackhammer Method" incurs tremendous costs in terms of labor, materials, work interruptions, and hazardous material removal and disposal.
The AC•Tech Oil Buster System™ Detergent (OBS-D) is a biodegradable cleaner that is sprayed onto mechanically prepared concrete with cold water. Mechanical preparation (via shotblasting) creates the porosity necessary for the cleaner to penetrate deep into the concrete substrate.
Once the OBS-D has turned clear (usually within an hour) the concrete is cleaned with a high-pressure, high temperature washer with a floor spinner attachment. This allows the OBS-D to bind with the hydrocarbons and other organic contaminants deep within the slab and "float" them to the top for removal. This cleaning process may need to be repeated several times, depending on the level of contamination.
Most floor spinners have vacuum attachments so that the waste-water can be vacuumed-up for disposal in accordance with federal, state and local hazardous material regulations.
