How to Remove Rust and Sulphate Stains from Natural Stone Paving

DeterdekNatural stone paving is ideal for application outdoors.  Sometimes, atmospheric agents can lead to rust or sulphate stains. It’s important to know how to remove these stains, without damaging the surface.

To clean natural stone paving, Fila has developed DETERDEK – a specialised descaling cleaning agent which is able to remove residual rust or sulphate stains from natural stone paving.  (Deterdek contains surfactants, so it can descale and clean.)

 

We do not recommend using Deterdek on polished marble or limestone surfaces.

Deterdek cleans without altering the stone’s appearance and it does not generate fumes which are harmful to people or the environment.

To remove rust stains, wet the area to be treated with water. Next, pour a little DETERDEK onto a green scouring pad and gently rub the area.  Then, rinse the treated surface thoroughly.

  1. Hi,
    I have been reading some of the comments and am interested on some advice of the use of your products.
    I have approximately 40sqm of grey natural stone granite paving. They have only been down 6mths. A lot of them have rusty stains all over them that I am lead to believe is iron. What products have you available for removing this and how much is needed ?

  2. Hi. Metal furniture has left spots of rust on our Indian sandstone, do you have a product that will remove them?

    1. Good morning Nick,
      we suggest to remove the rust stains using NORUST, a specific rust remover.
      We remain at your disposal for any further information you may need.

  3. Hi,
    Our concrete patio is stained with sulphate of iron after we added it to the soil inside a plant pot that sits on top of the patio. When it rained, some of the sulphate of iron ran out of the soil and the concrete is now stained orange-brown. Would this product work to clean it?
    Thank you,
    Ellie

    1. Good morning Ellie,
      I suggest you to use the rust remover NORUST, specific for materials like concrete, sensitive to acidic substances that could etch it.
      We remain at your disposal for any further information you may need.
