Polished Aluminum Truck Wash

Description and Use

Showboat is an effective biodegradable wash product with versatility in the ways it can be applied. This product can be applied using low or high pressure. It will work through a foaming arch too. High pressure application will give a faster performance and generally higher dilutions. The product will work fine with cold water. High pressure rinse is recommended with Showboat because of the characteristics of this method. Two applications of the soap without rinsing between is the best method to achieve brushless washing. It is absolutely safe around glass even if it dries on the surface. Showboat does not harm the shine on the surface.

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
First cut at 4:1 to make product ready to use then follow the dilution range listed below:
Apply using pressure washer up or down stream or low pressure spray applicator.
- 10:1 for difficult cleaning
- 20:1 for general or routine cleaning

Application
