SikaColor®-400 Opaque is a reactive acrylic solid color concrete stain that provides excellent physical properties intended to stain concrete or cement-based material. The SikaColor®-400 Opaque has a unique feature of self-etching concrete surfaces, which means it eliminates an acid etching surface preparation step, which prevents the runoff of hydrochloric acid into soil and drainage systems.
Anything dumped on the ground, including hydrochloric acid, can end up in the stormwater drain, which in turn leads to the nearest body of water. The acid can also travel through the soil to our groundwater which is utilized as drinking water.
Protecting Our Waterways from Hydrochloric Acid
According to SDS sheets, hydrochloric acid should be prevented from entering sewers, basements, or confined spaces.
Hydrochloric acid has a pH between 1.5 to 3.5. The neutral pH is 7. Most streams have a pH between 6 to 8. It is harmful to fish to have the pH fall below 6, especially below 5, and at a pH of 4.5, the water is devoid of fish.
When in contact with hydrochloric acid, it can cause mortality or damage to the fish's eyes and skin.
