Has Extra Bite For Tough Jobs
Cleans using saponifying action. That means the compound contains free caustic which adds extra bite by allowing reactivity with many soils. RED HOT literally makes its own cleaner because it reacts with fats and oils to create soap. This action is in addition to the action of other ingredients. It has a strong chemical "bite" needed for tough jobs. This product has a pH of 13.0 to 13.5; therefore, you should use gloves and goggles for extra protection.
Removes Stubborn Soils
RED HOT is the product of choice for removal of petroleum soils in a pressure washing/steam cleaner operation. It is a heavy duty chemical cleaner designed to remove stubborn soils and petroleum based muds and greases from oil rigs and off-road industrial equipment. RED HOT is an excellent multi-purpose degreaser and it is very cost effective. Because it is extremely concentrated, it may be diluted with a great deal of water.
A Cold Soak Degreaser
Proven effective as a cold soak degreaser when utilized at full strength. Grease, oil and most paints (example: valve cover paint) can be stripped from ferrous metals by soaking in RED HOT for 1 to 24 hours. It should be noted when this product is used to clean equipment that you should first spot test a small area of the soiled surface. It contains highly alkaline materials that may dull gloss paints, or damage aluminum and other soft metals, if applied at too strong a concentration. Generally, dilutions of 1:40 or greater have no effect on quality paint, if rinsed before any drying occurs.
Effective Pressure Washer Cleaner
Cleans most effectively when applied through a pressure washer. In such equipment, the metering system should be set to deliver from 1:10 to a 1:60 dilution, depending on severity of the soil deposits and the nature of the surface to be cleaned. Generally, when using a pressure washer for heavy deposits, you dilute at 1:10 up to 1:25. For pressure washing light to medium soil, dilute 1:60 up to 1:80. Take extra care to protect paint and soft metals from strong concentrations of RED HOT.
Excellent Concrete Floor Cleaner
RED HOT is a deep red liquid detergent that is easily mixed with water. It requires little or no agitation and does not settle out. This means the customer gets to spend less time mixing and more time cleaning with great results. It makes an excellent concrete floor cleaner. It does a great job of removing oils and greases. Mix RED HOT at 1:10 up to 1:20 according to the amount of soil. Mop or spray on floors. Agitate heavy areas and rinse. When you use it in a floor scrubber, the best mixture is 1:40 for most floors.
For Degreasing With Pump Sprayer
It may also be used in a garden type sprayer or applied with a brush to pre-clean heavy soiled deposits prior to routine cleaning. Concentrations ranging from full strength to 1:10 are applied to the soiled surface, allowed to soak, and pressure rinsed clean. For most applications when you use a spray pump, mix RED HOT at 1:5 to 1:10 for heavy soil. Use it at 1:15 up to 1:25 for light to medium soils. Allow five to ten minutes and then rinse the RED HOT mixture thoroughly. Extra care must be taken to protect automobile and equipment paint from strong mixtures of RED HOT.

USE STRAIGHT FROM CONTAINER FOR A COLD SOAK DEGREASER:
Customers tell us 3 - 6 gallon pails of RED HOT and 37 gallons of water (total 55 gallons) makes a much better cleaner than the Brand X 55 gallon drum. So RED HOT is very economical.
