How to Use Select-Etch

Watch our training videos for a complete overview of how to use Select-Etch.

Here are a few highlights:

  • Apply Select-Etch immediately after the final finishing pass
  • Remove once the underlying concrete has sufficiently hardened (typically 5 to 12 hours after application)
