Announcing the Launch of Piranha Prep - A Combination Etch and Cleaner

New Product is Completely Free of Strong Acid

Etch and Cleaner -NAPCO Piranha PrepWe are pleased to launch our newest environmentally-friendly product, Piranha Prep. This new hydrofluoric acid-free refinishing product is a combination etch and cleaner. It is perfect for use on tile, ceramic, or porcelain surfaces. Vertical clinging gel works to eat away at stubborn stains and simultaneously roughens the surface. It has been safely formulated so that it is completely free of hydrofluoric acid, one of the dangerous chemical compounds often found within etch treatments. Piranha Prep is now available for purchase on our website 

Customers should apply the product while wearing chemical resistant gloves and safety goggles. Be sure that your work area has sufficient ventilation and avoid contact with your eyes or skin. For best results, brush or spread Piranha Prep over the surface of the bathtub or tile and wait 10-15 minutes. Scrub the surface with water and a scrub pad and continue to clean with cool water after all material has been removed. Dry the surface with a clean towel and make sure the surface is clean and free of stains prior to continuing the refinish job.

“By developing a hydrofluoric acid-free combination of etch and cleaner, NAPCO provides its customers with a safer way to etch and clean a tub,” said Steve Coven, CEO of NAPCO. “This new product also enables refinishers to save time on their work by eliminating a step in the refinishing process.”

An additional benefit of this new product is that by eliminating strong acids from the etch and phosphoric acid from the cleaner, it’s actually much safer for refinishers to use.

NAPCO is always looking to innovate on behalf of our base customers, as well as to make products that are safer for not only our professional refinishers but also for our employees as well.


Review by Joe Richardson – Richardson HomeWorks LLC

Rating 5 5 Star Rating

We have been using Napco products for about 1.5 years now. Napco products have always exceeded our expectations. We primarily use their 320 Product lines. After we depleted our stock of their Poly Tub & Tile Prep we ordered their new tile preparation product (Piranha Prep). The Piranha Prep is a concentrated solution that cleaned the tubs very well without those harsh chemical odors.
So, on the behalf of Richardson HomeWorks LLC, we thank you for such an amazing Tub and Tile Prep.

I started out with NAPCO in 1996, shortly after it was purchased by Steve Coven. Both Steve and I shared a vision of growth for NAPCO. Always hungry for knowledge, I learned whatever I needed including sales, marketing, web development, operations management, HR, building and retaining a customer base. Whew! It has been a lot of fun because in the end, I really like working with our customers. They make it all worthwhile for me.
