HT-40 is manufactured by a process of synthesis from a blend of reacted chemicals. A complex group of intermediates are introduced into this synthetic reaction consisting of a balanced ratio of concentrated non-ionic detergents, alkyl aryl sulfonates, a low molecular chemical coupler and rust inhibitor. The product is completed with a buffered alkaline system and pressure filtered.
For many years such solvents as Naphtha, Benzene, Carbon Tetrachloride, etc. were used for degreasing and cleaning. These were highly flammable, toxic and corrosive. Today with the advent of HT-40 it is no longer necessary to use these solvents. HT-40 is a heavy duty cleaner-degreaser and wax stripper, which is non-toxic, non-flammable, non-corrosive, safe to use on all surfaces and does not contain any chlorinated solvents, aliphatic or aromatic hydrocarbons. Not only does HT-40 have all of the advantages of solvents with none of the disadvantages, but is also soluble in hot, cold, hard or soft water. Because of its deep penetrative action HT-40 readily removes built-up floor wax, dirt, ink, carbonized grease, oil, gum, soap scum, and heavy soil from any surface. The product can be sprayed, wiped or mopped and where required, HT-40 can be used in dilution with solvents.
How To Use Product
HT-40 is a concentrate. The dilutions listed below are suggestions and should be used only as a reference. Actual dilutions can be determined by field conditions after giving consideration to demonstrated cleaning effectiveness and rinsability.
Kitchen Fixtures & Equipment: For normal kitchen cleaning of grease and carbon use 1 part to 10 parts water. For heavy build-up of baked on carbon and grease inside ovens, fryers, etc. use 1 to 1 with water and scour with steel wool. For extreme cases see Product HT-704X HEAVY DUTY LIMESTONE & MARBLE PRECLEANER
Machinery: Use 1 part to 8 parts water or 1 part to 20 parts water depending on amount of oil and grease.
Automotive Uses: Upholstery, interiors, rugs, -- use 1 part to 30 parts water. Agitate with brush to raise suds, then remove and sponge.
Wood Floors, Sealed Floors, Terrazzo, Gymnasiums, Marble, Fuel Oil Truck Bodies, General Cleaning, Etc: Use 1 part to 10 parts water. Rinse with water and wipe.
Wax Stripping on Vinyl Tile, Linoleum, Rubber, Congoleum, Terrazzo, Marble: Use 1 part to 10 parts water. For extremely heavy built-up areas use 1 part to 5 parts water. Rinse with water.
White Wall Tires: Use full strength, agitate, then rinse off.
Masonry Substrates: Use 1 part to 10 parts water -- after 5-10 minutes dwell time -- high pressure rinse (1800 PSI at 4 GPM).
HT-40 is an industrial strength alkaline cleaner and therefore the use of rubber gloves and face shields is mandatory. If the product does contact the skin, flush with plenty of water and immediately apply a mild solution of household vinegar to the area. If the product contacts the eyes, flush immediately with water and follow with a mild eye rinse containing boric acid. Both emergency solutions should be on any cleaning jobsite.
This product is completely biodegradable. The effluent, if washed into the soil, will break down rapidly. If this product is inadvertently sprayed on bushes, trees, or plants it should be rinsed off. Rinsing with water will prevent permanent damage to plants, trees or bushes.
Effect On Other Materials
HT-40 will not damage most sound paint coatings. If there is any question, a patch test on the painted surface should be conducted. The product will not damage glass and it will also have no adverse effect on rubber, caulking or mortar. This product will clean certain types of stone, masonry and flooring materials, therefore, if the adjacent area is not going to be cleaned, it should be covered to prevent "clean spots".
For large scale or repeated operations a waterblaster can be used in conjunction with HT-40. First spray HT-40 mix directly on soiled areas. Let stand for approximately 5-10 minutes and then blast off dissolved and emulsified soils with high pressure water.
HT-40 has also proven to be effective for surface preparation prior to painting. Clean the surface using the suggested dilutions and thoroughly rinse.
