How do you remove lead-based paint from concrete?
paint thinner and elbow gresse
No. Muriatic acid will not remove paint from concrete. Muriatic acid will etch bare concrete though.
No, the color in spray paint is not affected by bleach. A proprietory concrete cleaner or fine sand impregnated with solvent will reduce the appearance of the paint.
It does depend on what kind of paint and how deep it has set in the concrete, but it certainly sounds like a good start to work on.
It would be best to remove all old paint first.
Pick your poison: 1. Slightly etch the concrete using muriatic acid, removing a layer of concrete and the graffiti in the process. 2. Paint over the graffiti with teflon impregnated paint. 3. Repaint often, if you can't find teflon impregnated paint.
Try coca-cola. They use it to remove dried blood so maybe it will remove paint.
Pressure washing is the best option.
Yes! The muriatic acid will remove epoxy paint on a concrete floor. Usually the epoxy paint will bubble up and will require a flat-blade or wire brush to full remove and.... repeat as necessary. be sure to nuetralize the floor when finished with (1pound of baking soda to 5 gallons of water). I got this reference from http://foundationarmor.com and it worked!
I would power wash it with a medium jet spray.
It depends on whether it is a water (latex) based paint or a oil based paint. If it is oil based paint it may not come out, but if it is a water (latex) based paint use 'Goof Off' or other latex paint removers with a wire brush. I have used 'Muriatic acid' on some concrete appications.
Go to a paint store and get a concrete sealer. This is a paint that will seal the concrete so you can paint without all you paint being absorbed into the concrete. Then paint it on and let it dry. Next paint the color you have decided to paint the bird bath.
sandblasting. get a rental for the job and research the procedure on intenet
I suggest you either try to power wash it, or if that doesn't work, find the right color paint and paint over the stain
The main difference between concrete paint and stain is that stain is colored and thinner. Concrete paint is used mainly to paint over top of existing concrete while stain will change the color. Stain is used more indoors than the paint.
high pressure power washing, approx. 3000 psi
You could try asking the question on the website of a major paint manufacturer, where you will get good but conservative advice. Water-blasting is a simple method, but only for sound concrete, otherwise you could erode loose concrete. Solvents are another possibility, but take care with vapours if indoors, and of fire sources nearby.
Muriatic acid will do it,but take extreme care - it can be very dangerous to use
Do you feel comfortable hitting it with a hammer (that's what I do with my Concrete Mixer.) There is always Muratic Acid not very friendly to your truck, But seriously "Zep" makes a product called "Mudslide" this is a Concrete disolver it works pretty good if you are talking about splatter or if the Concrete isn't too thick.

As long as the concrete paint is 100% acrylic paint, it can be used on wood decking. However, it may not be as durable as a floor or deck paint.
I wouldn't recommend it. Some of the chemicals in the alkyd will dissolve the latex and the alkyd won't "stick". It's best to remove the latex using laquer thinner or xylene first.
Rusty concrete is there such a thing? If the concrete is rusty because it was stained by steel laying on it, that will be easy.

Your local hardware store can provide different colors and options depending on the product line(s) they carry. If your concrete is rusty because the rebar is rusting and the… Read More

Usually a high powered pressure washer will take off paint rather easily. Hope this helps. Depending on the pressure of the washer, yes some residential/consumer pressure washer moderls can do it. Industrial/professional water blasting machines [some can go to 20,000 to 30,000 pounds of pressure] can remove anything from concrete, INCLUDING THE CONCRETE. So, if you cannot get the paint off with a consumer model, and you just "have" to get it off, consider engaging… Read More
Paints to be used on concrete should be made especially for concrete. This is a very hard surface to cover and keep covered so it is very important a paint made especially for concrete is used.
Yes you can. Substitute 20% of the water for the cement mix with latex paint (Water based paint) and mix slow and thorough. Don't over used too much paint it will damage the integrity of the concrete.

No, concrete paint will eventually chip and peel away from the wood and eventually rot. Concrete paint does not have the same bonding and protection agents as multi-purpose paints. My advice, go to a home improvement store and buy multi-purpose primer and the shade of multi-purpose paint you want. Just be sure it says "for wood".

Yes you can use paint thinner to remove the paint on the wood. 2nd Answer: No, paint thinner will not remove paint from anything. Most paint is now water-based, anyway. Paint thinner does just what the names says: It thins oil based paint if the paint is too thick for some reason.
