Big R Rig Wash

(Kleenzall)

 

 

 

Description:

Big R is a universal all-purpose marine cleaner. Big R contains deep penetrating solvents and emulsifiers designed for general use aboard vessels.

 

Being nontoxic and biodegradable, Big R is safe, easy to use and economical. It may be diluted with fresh water or sea water for dependable cleaning power. Big R is water reducible therefore, is not intended for internal cleaning of electric motors, generators, electronic devices, etc. Where high dielectric strength is required, various safety solvents are available.

 

 

Application:

  • Big R may be used straight or diluted with water as needed.
  • Apply by spraying, wiping or brushing.
  • Hot or cold dip tank method is useful when convenience of soaking or batch cleaning is desired.
  • Allow solution to remain in contact with soiled surface long enough to dissolve grime but do not allow to dry.
  • Wipe clean and rinse. (Rinsing is not necessary when diluted solutions are used.)

 

*DO NOT discharge waste overboard when in port.

 

Big R may affect some paints if applied in concentrated form. Avoid use of concentrate on glass and smooth aluminum.

 

 

Safety:  

 

Marine safety is of the utmost importance and certain basic conditions are essential for preservation of life and prevention of damage. This is true due to the necessary design of vessels, confined areas, storage of fuels and other flammables/combustibles, certain normally secured voids, and spaces that may develop oxygen deficiency. It is necessary to know the conditions before proceeding with work.

Resco Big A

A Bright Factory Finish Almost Instantly!

 

Description:

 

RESCO Big A is designed to brighten aluminum and aluminum alloys. It is a balanced compound that penetrates and dissolves oxidized surface film, almost instantly restoring the aluminum surface to a bright new factory finish. RESCO Big A is excellent for continuous maintenance of aluminum and stainless steel trailers, as well as other similar surfaces. RESCO Big A is a sulfuric acid-based compound, combined with additional fast-acting acids, and surfactants. This brightener is highly active. Therefore, even at highly diluted concentrations, it is very capable of brightening aluminum as well as stainless steel. The high percentage of surfactants in the formulation gives the diluted forms excellent spreading characteristics, and also allows for free rinsing. This product is for use only by skilled, trained operators who want efficiency in fast production line cleaning of trailers and other aluminum surfaces.

1.      Pressure rinse aluminum surface with water or a neutral cleaner to remove loose dirt, mud and oily, greasy soils.

2.      Dilute RESCO Big A with water. Use 1 ½ to 5 gallons of brightener per 50 to 53 gallons of water to make a total of 55 gallons of solution. The necessary concentration will depend on tarnish and oxidized film present on the aluminum surface, and also the speed of work desired.

3.      Apply this solution by brush or pressure spray. On vertical surfaces, start at the bottom and work upwards. Gentle rubbing with a brush while solution is on the surface will help loosen oxidized film. Leave solution to react on the surface for 3 to 5 minutes. DO NOT LET DRY! Rinse off with plenty of water.

 

WARNING: Because this brightener contains Ammonium bi-Fluoride & Sulfuric Acid, caution should be exercised to avoid contact with skin or eyes. Use protective clothing, gloves and goggles. In case of contact, flush with plenty of water and contact a physician immediately. Fatal if taken internally.
