With a thorough rinse, PLUS leaves no film or water spots on glass.

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 40째 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 90째 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
Apply using a pressure washer up or down stream or a low pressure spray applicator.

- 15:1 to 30:1 for degreasing trucks and heavy equipment.
- 20:1 to 50:1 for brushless truck washing.
- 100:1 for cleaning with brush - (1 gallon water to 4oz of PLUS)

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

Application

General Application
Plus can be applied with a low or high pressure sprayer. Craftsmanship determines the appropriate pressures for rinsing. A thorough rinse job is always recommended, however, our chemistry never requires flooding a wall. Pressures that mark or damage the surface should be avoided. When in doubt, follow the manufacturers recommended P.S.I. for the substrate on which you are working. If high pressure is not available, rinse with a garden hose. Always rinse while wet.
