See SDS and TDS for complete safety and application information.

Step 1 – Preparation – Degreaser 10:

Adequate protective equipment and clothing such as rubber gloves and protective eyewear are recommended.

Apply the solution with brush, roller, mop or low pressure spray. If surface is hot, wet and cool down before applying Endura Degreaser 10. Moderate scrubbing will aid in performance and speed of cleaning. Allow Endura Degreaser 10 to remain for 5-10 minutes, but do not allow the surface to dry. Rinse with excess clean water. For large surfaces, rinsing with power washer (1500 psi minimum) is recommended. A thorough rinsing is very important. All of Degreaser 10 must be removed.

Do not allow the cleaner to dry on the surface. When completely removed, the surface will no longer foam when rinsed. Water should drain off without any signs of a water break or water beading (areas showing water break or water beading must be redone). Continue until entire surface is cleaned. Any seams, crevices or rivet areas should be blown dry with clean compressed air. Allow the surface to dry thoroughly before applying coatings.

Step 2 – Application – Neutralizer 20:

Adequate protective equipment and clothing such as rubber gloves and protective eyewear are recommended.

Neutralizer 20 is applied in the same manner as the Degreaser 10. Please follow the steps above.
