Steam Cleaning & Pressure Washing Compound
Neutral ph Janitorial Detergent
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. An excellent janitorial cleaner for all surfaces. Harmless to normal skin.

Cardiblitz 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.
At recommended use dilutions it provides:
…Quick wetting, penetration, dispersion, suspension and emulsification of dirt.
…Solvent-booster action to remove the thin, adherent surface film which resists removal by
detergents and pressure alone.
…Foam sufficient to show the area sprayed.
…Quick, virtually spot-free rinsing due to low surface tension and deactivation of calcium and
other hard-water ions.
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….
|To remove light dirt from non-porous surfaces
such as windows or ceramic tile walls||1 oz/gal = 1:127 water.|
|For most jobs on hard, non-porous surfaces||2 oz/gal = 1:63 water.|
|For oily conditions such as the dirt on machinery, exhaust
fans, filters and ducts, and for porous surfaces such as
tarps or concrete||6 oz/gal = 1:20 water.|
|For drive-thru car washes with power brushes:|
|Recirculation systems||½ oz/gal = 1:255 water.|
|Once-thru systems||¼ oz/gal = 1:511 water.|
|For abnormal conditions||see below.|
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 Cardiblitz. 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 of PreSolv 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 Cardiblitz 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 Cardiblitz 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.
