Product Spotlight: Carbon-ATE Detergent

Pressure washer detergent

In the wake of COVID-19, business owners are more focused on the importance of cleaning and sanitizing surfaces in their workplaces. Effective cleaning practices extend the lifespan of company equipment and simultaneously protect employees from contracting viruses.

Fortunately, it’s possible for a business to maintain rigorous hygiene standards without spending an excessive amount of time cleaning. It’s easy to wash and sanitize surfaces if you have a quality hot water pressure washer and use the right pressure washer detergent.

One of Hotsy’s stand-out detergents is Carbon-ATE. In this article, we let you know what makes this product effective and the advantages it offers.

What is Carbon-ATE and what is it used for?

Carbon-ATE is a highly concentrated, fresh-scented detergent that works in both hot and cold water pressure washers. It’s non-corrosive and is designed to clean aluminum, stainless steel, fibreglass, painted surfaces and vehicles. Carbon-ATE can eliminate:

  • Grease and oil
  • Mould and mildew
  • Baked-on carbon

What sets Carbon-ATE and other Hotsy detergents apart?

In addition to delivering superior cleaning power, Carbon-ATE and other Hotsy detergents boast the following:

Carbon-ATE has a dilution ratio of 150:1, so a little goes a long way. Moreover, the detergent is available in various quantities, including 5gallon pails, 55-gallon drums and Bulk-Paks ranging from 250 to 500 gallons. All Hotsy detergents are competitively priced and provide excellent value for their cost.
