Sonax removes insect residue in the prewash
It differs from country to country how many insects end up on a windscreen or elsewhere on the front of a vehicle. What is a good sign for nature, is often a nuisance for car drivers. Apart from the aesthetic disturbance, the splattered dead insects can also restrict visibility, especially in the dark. And then it becomes a safety hazard. Sonax has recently added two new pre-cleaners to its range which hopefully solve this problem.
The new insect removers from Sonax are particularly effective thanks to protein-dissolving additives. They are now available, both as a low-foam version and as a foam application. This means that the right choice can be made for every prewash variant.
The new “Pre Star Evolution 678” is a special solution for low-foam prewashing. The strongly alkaline intensive cleaner is mainly used in prewash circuits of car washes and express car washes.
With the low-foam-version, the car driver keeps having a clear view while the precleaner can dissolve insect dirt until the actual wash starts. Thus, this pre-cleaner would be an optimal solution for the currently more frequently used pre-wash cycles, which supplement the actual car wash with another cycle.
According to Sonax, it ensures that even with particularly high wash volumes, overfoaming of the basin systems is effectively prevented. The water cycle is relieved by co-ordinated tensides without anions.
The foam variant
And then there is the “Clean Star Evolution 676” precleaner, which has been developed for manual and mechanical prewashing. This makes it ideal for use in high-foam areas such as “lava foam walls” or power foam lances in self-service cleaning. The application results in a very dense and therefore fine pored foam with a good surface adhesion.
Both pre-cleaners have a pH value of 13, are free of NTA complex images and phosphate.
