CLEANING CONCRETE SLEEPERS
Sometimes efflorescence may appear (white powder) after rain or heavy dew and frost. It is caused by the water evaporating out of the Concrete Sleepers and drawing salts and lime from the chemical composition of the concrete to the surface it is a natural thing concrete does, It is easily removed by washing the Concrete Sleepers Down with an acid solution.
Concrete Sleepers can be cleaned with 20 to 1 water to hydrochloric acid solution. Wet down sleepers first. Use a broom to apply the solution to the Sleepers. Apply the solution to the whole area so the concrete stays consistent. Be sure to cover up so acid doesn’t go on you. The stronger the solution, the coarser the Sleepers finish will become. Use lots of water to wash down cleaned area.
When using shatter sleepers in a retaining wall its best to use hot-dip galvanised steel posts, They come in a range of Joiner, end & corner sections witch will make it easy to install. use post size H/D 100x100x6 go to www.upritesteel.com.au for more details.
