I work in the field of concrete repair (epoxy related). Sulfamic
acid is weaker than Muriatic acid it can be found in a lot of
household cleaning solutions like toilet bowl cleaner and "tarnish"

Acid etching and cleaning can do a lot of work but can also "make" a
lot of work, or cause a lot of damage, sometimes sooner and
sometimes later. Using a corrosion inhibitor with the acid will
protect the sound metal substrate while going after the oxidized

For dilution ratios look on the Internet: "Sulfamic Acid, Tarnish";
solutions start at as little a 3 percent.

You can get an idea as to the benefits of a synergistic corrosion
inhibitor at the address below.
