CONSHOHOCKEN, US: Within industrial environments, high alkaline maintenance cleaners are often used to remove unwanted soils in work areas; however, their high pH levels and chemical composition can pose health and safety concerns to end-users. In an effort to address these issues, Quaker Chemical Corporation has developed a water-based maintenance cleaner, Quaker formula pure blue. Formulated with superior cleaning properties, the product has user-friendly characteristics and can be used in a wide range of industries including mining, oil & gas and steel.

Quaker formula pure blue contains effective surfactants to cut through oil, grease and dirt that accumulate on floors, walls and equipment. It can be utilized for floor scrubbers, machinery, tools and general maintenance cleaning applications. The product benefits are: User-friendly – mild soapy scent and nearly neutral pH make the cleaner less irritating and easier to handle as compared to other maintenance cleaners on the market; No harsh chemicals – non-hazardous cleaner formulated without phosphates, silicates, phenols or glycol ether solvents; and Cost effective – one all-purpose cleaner can replace multiple single function products allowing for simplified ordering and reduced costs.

“In a comparison test to evaluate cleaning performance for grease removal, the Quaker formula pure blue (concentrate pH 7.1) surpassed a competitive water-based maintenance cleaner (concentrate pH 9.5) to achieve a 98 percent cleaning efficiency,” said Wayne McVey, industry business manager – steel cleaners, Quaker.

The comparison test evaluated the cleaning efficiency of both products on two cold rolled steel panels coated with grease at weights of 200 mg/ft2 under the same conditions. A 10 percent cleaner concentration for each product was used in a spray cabinet, which demonstrated how Quaker Chemical Corporation outperformed the competitor, by almost 20 percent.
