Parts Detergents, Rust Inhibitors, Rust & Scale Removers-Metal Brighteners, Paint and Carbon Removers
A liquid detergent-solvent blend for use in any type of pressure-discharge or spray equipment where foam is acceptable. Use hot or cold. Use at any concentration on painted surfaces and bare metals including aluminum and other soft metals and alloys. Use on glass, plastics, rubber, ceramics, masonry, textiles, coated fabrics and similar. Use on floors where high accumulations of machine oils are a problem.
Active Components & Performance Properties
Contains buffered alkalies, organic chelant and sequestrant, corrosion preventative, rust inhibitor, organic solvent, and a synergistic blend of anionic and anionic wetting agents, penetrants and emulsifiers. Slightly viscous: it dissolves instantly in hot or cold water; its flow rate assures consistent , accurate dilutions when fed through a metering pump or suction device such as a venturi injector.
Recommended Use Dilutions
Dilute in water to suit the job. The dilution required depends on the quantity and type of dirt, porosity of the surface, soak time allowed, pressure and temperature. Recommended per gallon of solution....
Recommendations For Abnormal Conditions
If surface is so dirty that too much time is required to clean by normal methods, pre-spray at low pressure with full-strength Pentaterj, let soak up to 15 minutes, then pressure wash or steam clean at maximum pressure.
If dirt is unusually difficult to remove, such as some asphalts, tars, lubricants and resins, it is more efficient to pre-dissolve or pre-soften the dirt by applying a suitable Wash-Off Degreaser or Pre-Solv Solvent, let soak, then pressure wash or steam clean at maximum pressure.
If a thin, hazy film remains on the surface after normal washing, use the ACID-ALKALI SEQUENCE of application: At low pressure, flood the surface with Alumitone at 1:20 water, do not rinse; at low pressure, flood the surface with PENTATERJ at about 1:20 water; then pressure wash or steam clean at maximum pressure. CAUTION: To prevent etching of glass, do not use Alumitone at concentration over 1:20 water and neutralize Alumitone solution by applying PENTATERJ solution within 5 minutes.
Hot solutions, 120F to 180F, provide the most effective cleaning. “Cold” solutions, at ambient temperatures, are adequate for most types of dirt. For certain solid or thick substances which liquefy or soften at higher temperatures, hot solutions clean much faster and may be essential.
Charging Feed Tank
Most pressure washers and steam cleaners automatically dilute the feed solution with about 9 parts water. Use enough Pentaterj in the feed tank to allow for this automatic dilution. Example: If the equipment dilutes at 1:9 water, the concentration of Pentaterj in the feed tank must be 10 times the concentration desired at discharge.
