Surface and Air Temperatures
Excessively high or low temperatures will produce poor results and possible harm. Best cleaning results are obtained when air and surface temperatures are 40° Fahrenheit or above. Do not clean when temperatures are below freezing or will be overnight. If freezing conditions exist, allow adequate time for surface to thaw. If air temperatures exceed 90° Fahrenheit, flash cool the surface with water before applying product. Do not allow products to dry on the surface. Always rinse thoroughly while still wet.

Always test prior to beginning full-scale cleaning operations. Testing should confirm cleaning effectiveness on each type of surface and stain designated to be removed. Testing also determines the desired dwell time and any potential for adverse reactions with adjacent materials. Allow test panels to dry thoroughly before evaluating final appearance and results.

- 10:1 standard dilution

Note: Dilutions will vary based on the severity of the stain and type of surface.


Suitable Substrates
Aluminum, chrome

General Application
Apply at standard dilution down stream. For exceptionally heavy stains, use a double application (without rinsing in between) allowing a dwell time of three to ten minutes. Rinse with a pressure washer. Rinsing can be done with a garden hose but is less effective for heavy deposit removal. Do not allow the product to dry on the surface. Keep rinsed off of glass. Plants should be wet down beforehand and rinsed after.
