Product Description: XIM Etch-l-M is a brushable etching cream that will dull or etch the surface of hard, silica based materials such as porcelain, porcelainized steel construction panels, tile, glazed block and glass. It actually removes the glossy surface glaze. It is formulated into a thick brushable cream to minimize runs, drips and splashing. Etch-l-M is used as an alternative to the hard work of manual or machine sanding when the surface must be dulled for paint adhesion. Since Etch-l-M works in minutes, its use can shorten surface preparation time by up to 80%. Etch-l-M leaves a uniform, dull surface without the problem of deep sanding scratch marks that could show through the final finish. It can be reused over and over and cleans up with water. Note: Etching is defined as the chemical corrosion of the porcelain or glass surface. XIM's Etching Cream contains fluoride salts. It can be considered a dilute solution of hydrofluoric acid and must be handled with care. Hydrogen fluoride is used in the steel industry to pickle stainless steel, aluminum and titanium. It is used in the glass industry as an etchant.
