Preparation

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 40º 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 90º 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.

Pre-Testing
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.

Dilutions
First cut at 2:1 to make product ready to use then follow the dilution ranges listed below.
Apply using pressure washer up or down stream or low pressure spray applicator.

- 1:1 - 20:1 on aluminum
- 10:1 - 20:1 (non-coated) stainless steel

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

Suitable Substrates
Aluminum, (non-coated) stainless steel, fiberglass, tile, porcelain

Application

General Application
The product is best applied through a pressure washer using either low or high pressure. Apply the product to the surface twice, with a minimum of two minute dwell time in between. Soak for several minutes then rinse with high pressure. Exceptionally dirty surfaces that have not been washed for a long period of time may require a few applications. Mopping or scrubbing with a brush is acceptable method of application. The product will not harm paint or glass of a vehicle. It is recommended not to let soaps dry on the surface.
