Acid (Low pH) 1 Step Detergents & Aluminum Brighteners

Acid (low pH) products have several functions:
  1. Use to remove inorganic soils, dirt metals and hard water scale
  2. Use to clean glass and brighten metals by removing oxidation
  3. Two-step cleaning provides the best cleaning results. Low pH products will not completely clean equipment and vehicles on their own. Use of any of these acid (low pH) products along with an alkaline (high pH) product ensures your Fleet shines.
  4. Our low pH products target different types of soils and will work better in different geographic areas. Ask your chemical representative on the product best suited for your cleaning conditions.
  • Alkaline products target dirt, grime, oils, grease and organic soils.
  • Use a “metal safe” product when cleaning vehicles and equipment with polished metal and /or soft metal components.
  • Caustic products can damage polished and soft metals if not used correctly. The best use of caustic products is for cleaning work trucks with organic soils (e.g. garbage trucks).
  • All alkaline products work best in soft, hot water (110 F).
  • Proper dilution of detergents is essential for brushless cleaning.
